I agree with Luciribas. I too was a pro for a long time and started early on with the company and won best of 2015 & top 5 of 2016. I was also a mentor to others because of it and unfortunately I had to walk away because the numbers don't make sense. If you bid just 4 times in one day you're blowing $100 a day. As a small business that doesn't make sense. I can't do it and I know most people can't. Yet this is the new model. I have reached out and proposed #1 a pay per acquisition meaning you only pay if you and the customer agree that you want to work together. #2 having a minimum professional level and an upper level as well. If people are looking for the least expensive price there should be a minimum standard for each industry to be a legitimate professional business. Thumbtack should want this so that their business and name is not tarnished, as well as making sure that they're providing top notch talent. As I said earlier, I walked away because the new changes don't make sense monetarily or for any professionals reputation. Honestly I would like to see them make the necessary adjustments so that we can all be more successful. I don't see them lasting too much longer if this doesn't take place. Thumbtack if you're listening.... we would like you to work with us. It will make everyone including you more successful.
