I started using Thumbtack at the beginning of 2018 for petsitting company, Hands N Paws. I love the platform and the fact that it’s helped spread the word and get me business for my company. I will say that it has changed A LOT in a matter of 9/10 months. Leads used to be a lot cheaper to secure - Thumbtack would only charge a few bucks; now it’s around $9 for each hired customer for me. One thing I like though (that I think is new) is that Thumbtack will only charge if a customer responds and “shows interest” in working together; rather than charging for any message in response, even if it’s a “no, thank you.” I’m happy with the app, but too many updates and changes happen so quickly. I’ve also had great success with hires... how is it now that I can start earning badges and get ranked higher on lists? That is one thing I’ve been trying to work on, but any and all help in doing so would be nice. Thank you! One question (among many)... why have prices gone up exponentially for securing customers (hence for me, $3 per hire to $9)?
