I used Thumbtack a lot for my business prior to them changing the pricing. I really liked it about 2 years back when we had the beautiful profile pages to display our work. I thought Thumbtack was the one site that was truly good for small business! Now it just seems like they are trying to be like everyone else and make as much off of everyone as possible. It is GREAT to be an original - I wish they would go back to that. The pricing was fair and you didn't feel terrible if you didn't get the job. Buying credits and using them was great and manageable for me as a small business owner. Now I'm afraid to respond to even one lead and definately don't want to do instant match because I like to look at the scope of the job and comments first to make sure it is in line with what I do.
