I wholeheartedly agree with the OP. As a business owner who is just starting out I am constantly preached to by Thumbtack to "get more reviews" and "you can even import them from Google!" - but only in the depths of this pro forum do I find out that once you do this one time, you can no longer import from Google again...ever. Thumbtack: That's really not helping your pros starting out get any reviews onto the Thumbtack platform. I imported (unknowingly) when I had only one Google review and now have quite a few - so I was going to update them to bolster my Thumbtack profile a bit. But now knowing that I can't ever import again is incredibly frustrating. I'd rather have clients give me a review on Google or Facebook (much bigger client view-rate and search rate) and asking them to do Thumbtack too just seems redundant, especially if they didn't find me on Thumbtack.
