Thumbtack is sowing the seeds of its own destruction. By charging ridiculous rates for people to only ask stupid questions, or ask for a quote to know how much money they have to save over the next few years to afford what they are asking for -- is pathetic.

With no bidders, you have no business. Amongst my peers, your site is collectively known as the worst place to bid. This won't last.
