Thumbtack has been great for me, it's generated a lot of leads and I have been pretty successful on getting these customers. I'm currently in the lawncare, landscaping and pressure washing business. I do feel there should be a standard rate. Some landscaping jobs that I receive are very small compared to my lawn jobs yet I've been charged double for the landscaping... there's different price fluctuations in the lawns, and not all jobs are as they seem once you are on the property. I think a standard rate would work better and let the field professional make the decision as to whether the jobs are big or small. A lot of the information entered by the customers are also incorrect and your prices are being based on incorrect information. Also some customers just want a consultation and have no intention on completing a job this year, those should be in a different online consultation catergory. Overall I have had a positive experience and am hoping to continue with the app. Once the 2019 budget comes in for my business we can see whether we will move forward with Thumbtack.
