@DJStevie First and foremost, thank you for the reply! These issues really bothers me. I know for a fact many clients aren’t reading our profile. My profile has detailed info on my career and over 50 pics of recent and events that pertain to events I’m bidding for. However some clients still asks questions that can be found on my page. I have to do my due diligence and conduct a research on that! And yes - why ask for a price if I just a sent a quote?! I had a convo last week with a potential client who wanted to travel to Boston (from NY) for a gig in a bar that didn’t have a soundsystem. The traveling wasn’t the issue, but she asked if I can do it for under $200 because she doesn’t have enough money. I respectfully declined, but was charged $21... Thumbtack needs to monitor these conversations. Why charge me if you can cleary this person claiming they’re broke?!

Im a DJ on Thumbtack... I follow up on leads for the quotes I sent. You guys took away the option to let a pro know a client viewed our quote. Now I don’t know if I should send a reply or not because I have no clue if I was noticed. Also, I think you guys should have a set minimum price. I think there are DJ’s charging some ridiculously LOW prices, and I’m competing with $100 dj’s. Not fair. That leads to me being charged for someone reaching out to me & no guarantee I’ll get hired - but then the client sees someone charging much less and they get hired. So I lose $$ double time. Fix this, please!
