With the new way Thumbtack works, I am charged when folks look at my profile. For a professional musician, this is a tough one. Many customers are just "shopping" and not really interested in my skill set. They are looking for a specific style of musician (cellist, singer, etc.) but look at my profile (harpist) out of interest. Also, is there a way to make it so that when I am booked with a client on one date that I won't get any more leads on that date? Some sort of calendar or something. Since it is wedding season I am getting a lot of hits all on the same days. I can only do one job at a time and I hate paying for all these leads that I cn not possibly take. Lastly, it would be great if we (the pros) could rate (or warn) other pros about "bad clients" - like folks that don't pay. I have been burned a few times and would like to warn other pros about these clients.
