I received an email today and I apologize if I am wrong but it is my understanding that you are going to throw leads to us and charge us if they reach out to us??? Yes it will help business but you are also going to be charging money to us even if we don't want the lead. Half the people on here are shopping or you personally can not contact. I have no problem paying for leads if they will provide there contact information. What you are charging now compared to a year ago is a absolutely ridiculous!! I always loved using Thumbtack and recommended you to everyone I know for contractors to individuals looking to have work done. I now tell everyone you have become home advisor with sales representative pouring crappy leads at you and tripling what you spend. Most leads go nowhere, some end up well. I personally don't mean to be an ass but I can tell bye the request if its garbage and move on. If you start sending me leads and charging me without consent I'm leaving Thumbtack and telling everyone I know who uses you ( most of them have the same opinion as I do) not to use you unless you provide the customers information. Your a great lead company but your not a salesman!! I am grateful for the leads but you don't know what works best for each individual company and you don't know how to close the deal. I'm not paying $20 in gas $24 on a lead plus my time as an owner on a lead I paid for that I already know is maybe worth $100 (add labor and where are you at numbers wise) PROVIDE THERE INFORMATION !
