Hello! I am a DJ and love using Thumbtack, but i have some concerns, not sure if you share the same... How can you determine if a client is serious or not to justify the cost to charge various amounts to your choosing? I think it should be the same price for all, regardless. Sometimes the clients with the least information are the more serious, as oppose to the one who ask everyone "Are available for my date?" Can we get rid of those automatic responses that are there for the client, and make them actually type a personal message to interested Pros? I put up a lot of money and sweat to try and land jobs and have had success. How about inputting a module for us to weed out those just trying to see what the going rate is? Make them pay $0.50 to a $1 for each Pro they are interested in??? Or maybe put out a disclaimer before they say they are interested in a Pro's service, you can alert them? And by doing so , letting them know it will cost the Pro you are contacting a service fee, whether they decide to hire them or not, once they make contact with them, and to be mindful and considerate . Just a suggestion. If I were the customer, it would make me think twice before selecting a Pro . Thumbtack will still get paid their due diligence and acquiring it more in a credibly profitable way. Everyone wins!
