Similar to those that have posted before... I used to use Thumbtack consistently and was a TopPro. I went from booking 10-25% of my quotes to 2-5%, making it cost probitive. I had noticed, and complained before leaving Thumbtack that there were too many requests that were not serious inquiries or individuals that posted numerous quote requests. There has to be some sort of tiered system, where initial inquiries cost significantly less, and if a job is verified as booked (confirmed by both the client and professional) then there is an additional job. I don't mind paying for inquiries, but not if it costs the same as the person who ends up getting the gig.
