I started using thumbtack in January and I was receiving a lot of interest in a lot of job opportunities. After about three months into using the app I started noticing some major flaws.. I am paying hundreds and hundreds of dollars for people to ask me when is my next availability. When I replied back to them I would get no response. I figured that would happen a couple times— not nine out of 10 potential clients. With the ranking system I thought it was gonna be a bit more beneficial for the business. However, I haven’t seen one quote or one customer reply to me in the last two months. Is this because my ranking isn’t high enough or is it because thumbtack isn’t letting people see my quotes? I feel like this app is turned into a place for people to fish for a price and not follow through with the services that the professionals deliver.
