Hi. I'm Dina. I work and write for Thumbtack. Other interests include: reading, feeding my baby radishes, demanding that everyone know that my baby likes radishes, and considering and then declining exercise.
Having the same problem. I can justify the disappearance of some customers - contacted other pros and so on, however, there are others that are blantanly obvious. Today, for example, I received a lead from someone who responded to my reply soon after asking for my availability and a link to my website. First of all, her statement read, " send a link so WE can look at it", and the link is right there in my profile (Hmmm - red flag). THen, when I sent it to her, she responded immediately, too soon to take the time to open & read my webpage. Her response was, "Hi - Currently out of town. I will give you a call on Monday or Tuesday of next week." It is discouraging enough that I am wasting money on this form of ghosting; but, I am also wasting time that I could be working on my other jobs!!!

@MLCC When we are Promoting, we don't see the lead cost until after we get a "conversation starter", and there have been times I felt that the pricing was too high for a 3 hour DJ job. Many times I was ghosted after I replied. As for rank, I said it earlier in this thread that we had discussed in a previous thread for a time frame(4hr-24hr) for a Pro to reply because of daily circumstances(work, family issues, driving, sleep, school, etc). But don't know if that feedback was ever passed on and/or what the status is if it was passed on DJ Stevie 5-8-2019
