I have similar complaint as everybody else. I was a Top Pro in my area and I now barley use thumbtack to send any leads. Their pricing scheme got way out of hand that it made more sense to use my marketing money elsewhere. I am still getting leads but because its based off the cost to respond to those leads I leave most of them unanswered. There are jobs such as web development that cost 30+ more to bid and the risk of bidding and not getting that job is not worth where I could take and use that 30.00 for advertisment space with google or facebook marketing. Such a bummer that Thumbtack has changed their pricing so much that the pro's cannot keep up with it. In addition I noticed this is helping those who are requesting services. Thumbtack (was) my place to solicit services as a customer as well but with many top pro's not responding I am getting less options to choose from and will probably go a different route. (example: tile work).
