I would like to suggest a perk for Top Pros that would give us some number (1-10 is a start) of free quoting opportunities (per week/month, after x amount of paid quotes, whatever). We pay for a lot of nonprofitting contacts, to not have some type of rewards program for quoting at the highest level and upholding the Top Pro standard.
@xdwalley we'll be happy to pass along the ideas you've shared here about being a Top Pro.
As far as current perks, Top Pros receive a badge that appears on their public profile and in search results. And they receive a digital version on their widgets page that they can download and post to their personal websites or social media. These have proven to be great for attracting customers. Top Pros also receive prioritized customer support and special invitations.
As a user of 5+ years, Ive seen Thumbtack implement and discard many, many different policies.
I disagree that this would be a good thing for pros. I consider my profile more attractive than my competitors and I don't need any sort of advantage over my competition. I want to spend money like them and have better results. If you already have a competitive advantage, don't worry - Thumbtack's constant changes will keep you on your toes. I advise you to work within the system constantly to find ways to distinguish yourself from your competition. Not all of these changes can happen immediately.
