My first couple years with Thumbtack generated a lot of business for my trainers and myself. While, several clients I obtained from Thumbtack several years ago remain great clients of ours, Thumbtack has really gone downhill. It is ridiculous that I cannot customize a quote, it costs 3-4 times as much, and instead of 5 people responding, it is like the Wild Wild West with unlimited people quoting, of course I am sure I am competing with trainers who charge $20 a session, which you can’t make a living on unless they are part time and have another job. Thumbtack is not the only thing I use, but it is frustrating from getting 2-4 new clients a month and mostly good potential leads to nothing on here. I’ve seen one lead talk to 26 different pros! Insane...TT made a killing on that lead! In fact, I had two scammers this week show interest in me. Thankfully Thumbtack did refund my quotes. And a third person showing interest that was not in my travel range, and I still got charged. Sad to see how downhill this site went.
