Does the new formate do away with instant match....if so why? Ranking should be based on Education, Experience and Client testimonies as well as how informative the Profile is. For example...I have Two Masters Degrees, 30 years of experience and over 50 testimonies posted in my media section. Very few if any other pros on Thumbtack remotely compare to these areas of qualification. My pricing is very affordable and for the area I market too. I offer services in the Professional Coaching niches of Personal Training, Nutrition, Health and Wellness, Life Coaching, Longevity Coaching and Self Defense Tactics. I assume under the new formate that if a client contacts me....I can respond after they look at my profile. Now here is the problem with this. A client looks at a Profile without being able to recieve a message appropriate to what there needs are. they are. This is a BIG PROBLEM. You are getting the Cart before the horse. The most improtant thing a Pro needs to do is address the specfic issues the customer stated as their need. Flipping through Profiles without seeing specific information related to customer needs will result in poor communication between Pro and Customer at a critical time when the Pro needs to address the specific needs of the customer. Get the Picture????
