Being small business, I struggle with varying the cost of leads. I used to quote much more often, did my followups and nothing. Also I spend, spend, spend but have never booked a gig because of thumbtack quote. No one repsonds back or they're really just gathering information. I liked the credits and me getting to choose when and howmuch I spend, if at all! Now if the leads do not respond and I were to get a refund of my credits, GREAT!! but I feel as if im throwing dollars with my businewss card attached HOPING it will hit the right customer. Maybe since they can ask for free, we can quote for free however only through thumbtack - do not allow contact info to cross without payments. Maybe serious clientel would pay for x number of quotes, then we would KNOW they are serious! Time is Money - these "leads" have cost me plenty and brought no bookings!
