Solo Sax

TT does not have a category for Solo Sax. Therefore, I must target for 'bands' as the closest fit and have paid for 'perfect match' leads that really were not!  We need a category for 'Solo Sax'.  I called the customer support line and she was not able to help beyond adjusting my setting slightly. PLEASE add this category or simply add 'solo artist' category and allow us to fill-in the instrument we play. Thanks.

Re: Solo Sax

Thanks! I noticed today that I dropped from 3rd to 6th place when I searched "Music Entertainment". And...my lead count has dropped. I have pretty wide preference settings with auto pay turned on. How do you decide viewing order when someone searches?

Re: Solo Sax

@trmelo the biggest factors that go into your ranking are reviews, response rate/time, preferences and pricing, and profile. You can read more about ranking HERE. Be sure to also check out your Insights to see how your competition is performing and what you can do to stay competitive

Re: Solo Sax

Understood, which is why I'm puzzled. If you look at my stats...as generated by Thumbtack...I have more reviews, I respond faster and I am priced more competitively than the others above me. What else should I be doing?

Re: Solo Sax

@trmerlo I just did a search for Music Entertainment in your area and am seeing that you're showing up third on the list. Keep in mind that it can change based on the criteria that Kameron mentioned above. If you look at the pros that appear both above and below you, some of them have as many as 34 reviews. So that's an area that I would suggest to build on.

Let us know if you have any other questions!
