Reese is spot on. It's pretty clear that TT has absolutely no clue what kind of ROI we as pros are actually getting from this platform. The examples given in this post are not only unrealistic, but even if they were...they would NOT represent a good ROI. I've said it countless times before, even in private messages to TT themselves.

Doesn't matter if you are betting on Google Ads, Home Advisor, Thumbtack or the countless other methods of gaining new business. At this point, TT represents the WORST odds of success. In Thumbtack's world, the house always wins. It's no longer worth it to play their games by their rules. We have much better luck elsewhere.
