I had a client leave me a review after I tendered her makeup services. The review said nothing that would violate the Thumbtack rules. I received an email saying they removed the review for violating guidelined and no way to dispute this.
Is this common? I work hard for to make a name for myself. I cant have this website removing my reviews when I havent even landed any jobs through here yet. Theyre costing me money and my reputation.
Please have someone contact me about this.
Not only that, but @Kameron email to me was nothing more than "our analytics determined the review violated our guildelines, if you have more questions contact support".
Id really like to know what guidelines it violated. I am cancelling this entire service. Ive spent oevr $15 on leads which ZERO have turned into jobs. Absolutely disappointed.
@RachelRivero That looks like an awesome review! I don't see anything wrong with it. Thumbtack randomly deletes things, like many comments here in the "public" forum, where people are supposed to express themselves...but, only to thumbtack's liking.
@RachelRivero First, I just want to commend you for your solid 5-star rating, that is so impressive! You are obviously great at what you do. As a long time Thumbtack pro myself, I understand the frustration that you must be feeling. (I still remember the first and only negative review I got - it was nearly 4 years ago and it still stings). We are passionate about what we do and reviews are important to us!
If you would like further information, I would encourage you to reply to the email that you received about the removal of the review.
I would also encourage you to grab more reviews from past customers - you can have up to ten of those
Your work is beautiful, keep doing what you're doing!
I don't think that there was anything wrong with that review. We as Pros work very hard to get 5star reviews. I know that I would be more than livid if any of my 5star reviews were deleted. @DustiO , So now there's a policy for reviews? Do we provide those to customers before they leave reviews or do customers have that policy when they sign up?
