Im a little confused. I received an email requesting my address to mail me, what I would assume, is a holiday card. The email said that i was a top pro and TT wanted to hear from me. I dont have access to the Top Pro Badge. Im not complaining, although, I find newer companies earning that badge. My story, I started my business part-time many years ago as a hobby. I love technology! After 20 years in a different but related field my wife and I discuss me doing my business full time. I was incredibly unhappy with my employer at that time. Timing is everything! Thumbtack seems to be the app for the generation I do the best with. I am happy, for now, to be on TT. Its giving the lift and exposure I need to expand my business. With that said, why am I getting these Top Pro emails if Im not considered a Top Pro yet. (at least no access to the badge).

I am appreciative for this venue of feedback. I have noticed that Im getting fewer jobs now than just a few months ago. Im not sure if its due to your changes or simply competition in my sector. I have found that new companies are getting hired more and ranked higher. I also have been hired by people who did hire another company which did illegal or crappy work but continue to be on Thumbtack. I actually saw me fees lowered which I appreciate since my cost of staying on TT as now increased due to the decrease in business. I also notice more "views" which frustrates me that my views doubled but less work. I continue to tough it out because, again, the age market I target are Thumbtack customers. But I will say that these "referral" type apps are popping up everywhere and people are jumping from one to another like online dating lol. I dont mind the views but I think that the previous bidding process seemed to work better. I look forward to seeing TT grow and improve but I do suggest it happen soon. Cycles come and go. TT is making wrong moves during peak seasons.
