I find a comprehnsive profile draws more inquiries. However, there is a knack to presenting the most attratcie draws about your business, as to highlight them. So, customers see your profile, both as button points to consider and a comphrensive picture of what you offer. When I recevie an inquiry, it is then about scheudling a time for a first lesson.
My best tip is to be very specific in your quotes. Provide lots of detail in the message about your service and what the customer will get for the listed price above. I also always tailor my attachments and photo samples to their request to let them know I am capable of providing exactly what they need.
Having a complete and polished profile, complete with a good photo, samples, and text content is critical to landing clients. This is your professional presence, and should reflect the image your business wants to promote.
For your profile text, remember people are viewing this online and on phones. Use shorter sentences, stick with the highlights (leaving out the extra fluff), and embrace white space.
Keep in mind that not all potential clients work the same way. I've had some who don't look at the profile at all, and others who go over it very carefully. Try not to get frustrated when you have to repeat something a potential client could have read in the bid or your profile.
Referalls, Referalls, Referalls!!!! Hands down the most important part of having an effective Thumbtack Profile is getting as many testimonials from previous customers as possible. The way I see it is that it is similar to shopping on Amazon, if people see a person who has way more reviews and those reviews are highly rated and descriptive then they almost always choose that professional.
