Happy New Year, everyone! Normally, this time of year was when my Thumbtack Pro account was deluged with wedding/engagement photo quote requests. Most of the leads had good budgets and job details that matched my skills and job preferences. I'm also happy to say that EVERY SINGLE ONE of those clients were good people, and the events were fun, and I did some of my best work for them. That was THEN... Now, I rarely get ANY leads, and when I do, their budget is tiny or they practically want the job for free. But mostly, I don't get ANY leads. My business is dead. This used to be a busy time of year when I put out a lot of job bids, but now there's nothing. I've already spent a lot of time chatting with Customer Service, there's little if any more tweaking that can be done to my profile to helpt this situation. Thumbtack, you killed my business. You, your new system, nothing else.
