I just don't think that Thumbtack works well for my type of business. When I was able to control which potential clients I sent bids to, I was getting better response. Once Thumbtack supposedly started sending bids on my behalf, those clients dried up. I have not had a referral from Thumbtack in months. As I understand it, I am only charged now if a person contacts me, but often that contact is simply to ask about whether or not I take their insurance or to ask some other question that is not leading them to schedule with me. So, it is a lot of money to pay to answer one question that does not lead to a new client. I have stopped using Thumbtack for the most part and have contemplated removing my account altogether. I do not see benefit from it now.
