Thumbtack USED to be the best on the web. Now your varying prices are complete bullshi*. I have been using Thumbtack since 2015, in the begining it was great, buy credits, bid on the job, get hired, get a review and get paid. It was reasonable pricing, now I RARELY even use this crappy service, Home Advisor is my new #1 source, and unless Thumbtack can get a grip on the situation, they will fold. Keep pricing the SAME for EVERY type lead, ceiling fan install used to be 3 credits, $3.33 now it's over $12, IF that's the cheapest thumbtack feels they should charge, I have paid $19. No more will I do that, I too have pages of useless dead end leads. Start charging the customer as much as you charge the contractors. Bet you won't get very many.
