While I didn't read all entries, I did notice that overwhelmingly people are NOT happy with what Thumbtack has changed. For me, I've basically stopped using it. I tried Instant Match and couldn't figure out where you came up with my pricing - it wasn't what any of my templates showed. When bids were $1.67 - $3.34 each, that was manageable; however now that they are $14.08 to $23.05. (And I could never figure out how you thought Life Coaching should be at a higher bid than Hypnotherapy). Also, you've opened it up to sending too many bids for each job. So I've turned off Instant Match and I carefully choose who I bid with. I have noticed, going back, that no once in the past month has your client HIRED anyone. Such a crock. I have not deleted my account, and it will take a lot to get me active again. All newbies to the hypnotherapy world in my area, I am telling them to STAY AWAY from Thumbtack. It's best to spend their precious money elsewhere! Other responses I have read have a similar thread that it seems people are not seriously looking, some may even be researching to see what others are charging. It's turning into Groupon!
