Hello Kameron, Thank you for your reply. I am promoting my page, i am a top pro, and I reply clients quickly, and I have alot of reviews. Also there is no:customer "budget" option in cutomer request for make up artist, so I am still confused as to how that is determined. I see people with more reviews, more hires listed below the page because their price is higher, so it is price that is determining the listing algoritm. and how are we supposed to get higher ranking if we are not getting any customer contact or hires if our profile are not being viewed becuse it is on the bottom of the page. The best system that has worked great on thmbtack for me so far if paying for credits, refunding when noone replies, and seding 5 pros to client, you can always rotate the pros profile sent to clients, so that everyone gets a chance to be seeing, and not send clients 15 profile. Thank you

Even though the new plan seems like it will help "reduce" how much we are getting charged, however, I am not too keen on this new system. I tried it out myself and I can say that I do not like the layout the result are being presented, not sure if it is my own field or something else. The search result seems to list people with the cheapest price on the top of the page, and not maybe the ones with the most credible profile. I feel like this is what thumbtack promotes anyways so it is not a shock to me. Thumbtack seems to promote cheaper pros to clients, so they come up first on the search result. This is not fair to other pros who are professional and have a justified reason behind their price. Also since the new system, i have not recieved any customer contact, or profile views, again this might be due to the fact that there are other pros who are low balling this service. There is too many changes going on with thumbtack, it is hard to keep up, thumbtack was unique, had its own style and brought me great business, now it is starting to look like every other gig website out there.
