I don't like paying for a lead that goes nowhere. I should not pay for when a "lead" responds with a question thst does not lead to paid gig. I think I should pay only when the client actually hires me and then no more than about $10. I have also started getting "leads" from well outside of my area - meaning I have to charge for travel and do I price myself out of those gigs, this drives my booking percentages way down and that doesn't look good to other potential clients. Also, there is no vetting of clients whatsoever meaning that a very high percentage are NOT serious leads. Charge the client to post as request and we'll get only serious gualified leads, which is what we shiuld be able to expect every time. $10 per BOOKED gig is more than fair for what we get paid per gigs booked here.
