Since the pricing has risen to the astronomical and all small businesses are feeling financially misused, what do you plan to do to protect us business owners? There is no way for us to know if a prospective client is a real lead or not. Now in days, scamming is on the rise to an even more complex degree and we have no guard up to shield us. There need to be mandatory buttons implemented for customers to choose after they read our quote. “Are you interested? Yes, No, Maybe.” Adding an additional line that allows them to elaborate if they wish would be great. We need to know if these people just want to ask 20 questions/window shop or if they’re serious buyers. I don’t want to pay 60 bucks for a browser. It’s utterly ridiculous! Thumbtack was actually a primary source of leads for TTD but since the changes, my business sales have plummeted. I’ve had no choice but to stop using Thumbtack. I have been waiting with the hopes of new changes that will honor and respect each of us hard-working business owners. Less income, suspicious leads, higher prices equals a lose-lose for us all. Marc we are counting on you to protect the business owners that have led to Thumbtack’s great success. Thank you for your time. Best!

@Carson Here are some great ways to help improve the Thumbtack Profile Experience for both the Pro and Potential Client. Providing Interactive Profiles that can be personalized to an extent by the professional would be great. Profile updates would include adding background page color, changing fonts, pictures display, etc. Having a handful of these types of capabilities will make it more engaging for the potential client. Making Thumbtack Profile more discoverable on Major Search Engines. Thumbtack/Pro’s Name/Expertise Share this Pro! Social Media Buttons.
