Spring has finally arrived here and I’m so happy that the snow is melting! As the snow melts, I am reminded of all the things I need to do around my house.
This is a great time to try Thumbtack as a customer (if you haven't already). Do you need some spring cleaning done? Maybe it's time to get those branches and leaves removed from your gutters. Or perhaps this is the time to get your air ducts cleaned. I just hired a Thumbtack pro to clean all of my tile/grout.
Using the platform as a customer offers SO MUCH insight to a pro. It helps you improve your profile, because you can see what makes other pros stand out. And it helps you improve your communication with potential clients, because you can see what type of communication you value most.
We would love to hear about your experiences as a customer, and we want to give away $250 to one of you!
To enter the contest:
Find and hire a pro on Thumbtack .
After you’ve hired the pro, reply below and tell us:
What type of pro you hired and what job you had done.
One #LoveIt (something you enjoyed about your experience as a customer) OR one #CouldBeBetter (something that you think we could improve upon).
One thing you’ll do differently as a pro now that you’ve seen the customer experience.
Our team will read about your experiences and pick a favorite.

Hi @GailGutenmann, to answer your question about me - I live near our Salt Lake City office and I used to make a lot of cakes for Thumbtack. I also came into the office to speak about my experience as a pro several times a year for a few years. I was looking to shift out of making cakes full time, and get some weekends back so I could spend more time with my family. I found an opening at Thumbtack and applied - and voila!
As for pricing in specific categories - the best thing you can do as a pro is give very specific feedback on pricing, customer journey, etc --- How would you price jobs, what questions would you ask customers, etc.
We have also recently launched a program where we are enlisting our very best pros across the country to host meet-ups in their home towns, connect with other pros, support one another, and also to hear feedback and bring that feedback to Thumbtack - like a pro advisory council. We are doing everything we can to bring the pros' voices to the table to help shape the future of Thumbtack.
We are also visiting cities across the country to host events and to hear feedback directly from our pros. Keep your eyes peeled here in our online community for future meet-ups!
And of course, we have this forum in which we gather feedback every day!
If you have any more questions, feel free to DM me.

@RothsteinJewlry and @Daniel_O - This was a much smaller group and was community meet-up, rather than a big pro event. It was put on by a local pro. The invite list included only events industry pros - and it was a short list at that. BUT, we will be having many more of these smaller meet-ups, so keep your eyes peeled here in the Community, or watch for emails!
Sorry we missed you this time! Let me know how things are going and if there are any types of meet-ups you would like to see in LA!!!
