I think the pricing is way too expensive now. I don’t understand why you guys just don’t do what all the other entertainment Booking Sites do, and do a flat monthly charge, and/or 5% of the booking fee. I pay about 19.99 a month for other sites, and book a lot more with them. I’ve spent 4 times that amount, with Thumbtacks new format, in one month over clients that either didn’t have the budget to hire me, or asking me pointless questions that could’ve been answered by simply looking at my profile. I don’t dare do follow up messages anymore. I figure, if my first quote didn’t get a response, they’re not interested. I’m not going to follow up with them just to get charged $20 for them to say they decline. It’s not rocket science. Several other sites are very successful with the monthly fee format. I would say, for someone in my field, Thumbtack is worth about $15 a month.
