So I just recently joined Thumbtack a few weeks ago. I've heard great things about it and I figured this will be a great way to expand my clientele as a Makeup artist. I have yet to book a gig but I've paid about $60 so far on fees from clients who about 50% asked to see if I was available. When I replied back stating I am and lets connect and finalize things I never heard back. One customer messaged me statimg my prices were too high (to each its own) so she will opt for someone else. I asked weren't my prices stated before she messaged me, why did she even send me this message. The client states it only listed my price for the day service not the total for travel and trial. As a new member starting out I believe its best for the company to charge a set price for gigs booked. Not a price on potential clients or when clients reach out. Its not granted that they will book and its a big lose on our end as artist/workers.
