My name is David Wilkins and I am a Top Pro Bartender from Edison, New Jersey. I have been a Top Pro on Thumbtack for a number of years now. My tip would be to answer any customer request or calls ASAP. In my field, sometimes customers need answers quickly if there is an unfortunate thing that arises and someone cancells on them. I also cater to the theme of there event at times when I can. It could be Halloween drinks for a Halloween Party to a Kraft Beer tasting at a Birthday Party to Special Christmas Drinks at a Christmas Party to a Wine Tasting at a Bridal Shower. I also give the client standard mens and womens drink list with a recommended bar supply list. The point is to make there event something to remember in a good way and to remember you.

Hi Thumbtack Community members, as a bartender for the past 12 years, and with Thumbtack for the past 5, it has been a long and winding road as they say. I would say responding to potential clients asap is a big plus. Many like fast responses but there are also those that seem to be shopping. Another big plus is reviews from jobs you have completed from those clients. What helped me was the type of reviews left. Many with short paragraghs talking about how I helped them step by step with bar supplies according to what kind of event they were having. With me, I do make drink recommendations again according to there event. I also come up with drinks if they start running low on supplies. Usually the supplies the client gets is close to what they need. My guide sheeets I send are fairly close to the amount of people attending there party. I hope this helps. Thanks Thumbtack.
