Here is my problem with the pricing change...the service that thumbtack provides me hasn’t changed. All you offer me is an introduction. That’s it. You base pricing based on what the job is worth but you are not offering me a job. You are only introducing me to someone who is looking for my service. It’s up to me to actually get the job. This costs me more time and money and in many cases I never get that far with a thumbtack user. I don’t understand why prices to quote is 10% or more of what the job pays when you are not giving me a job offer. You are only introducing me to a POTENTIAL future customer. I get better success with word of mouth which is free. I get more inquiries and traffic from social media which again is free or certainly less than thumbtack. So if your service to me has not changed, why has your pricing?
