I felt the same way because I realized, clients were not going to go to my Profile where I do have videos I've uploaded. So I put them in the introductory letter I send out. In the beginning, I sent them inside a Word attachment but I had to upload them in YouTube first. Copy the YouTube format, then paste it in a Word document and send it as an attachment. That way, they would see my videos immediately instead of hunting for them. I had to remember, some of my clients are beginners on the computer and I had to leave big bread crumbs for them to follow. Then I realized I could copy & paste the YouTube format directly into the intro letter. That was even easier but still a pain because I'd have to go back to YouTube to find them, copy & paste them. So I singled them out & even made new videos and put them someplace where I could just copy & paste them in the Intro Letter. That's the only way at this point, you'll get to your clients to watch your work until they overhaul Thumbtack again.

I've posted videos inside my templates because it was easier to let the client see what I could do for them at different levels. However, I discovered recently that Thumbtack does not let you post videos with the MP4 extension. WHY NOT? I had to go to YouTube and copy my videos from there and paste them inside my introductory letter. By now, Thumbtack should be able to take almost any type of video extension, besides YouTube. AVI, MOV, WMV, MPEG4, FLV, F4V: just to name a few. It takes time to hunt down my videos on YouTube when I should be able to upload them quickly to send to the clients.
