I offer bed bug extermination services, which is a subset of general pest control. Because I specialize in my industry rather than doing bed bug control as part of the larger pest control industry, I offer a different, specialized service than 90% of my competitors. My issue on Thumbtack is that my quotes appear as a mere price alongside competitors that offer a far less effective service. Comparing prices alone, my prices are higher so I rarely get contacted off Thumbtack. I wish there was a way for Thumbtack to automatically send my developed quote template to matches for my service so they can see why my service is more expensive. After all, many people with bed bugs are willing to pay a slightly higher price to get rid of bed bugs in a day rather than using a cheaper service that can take up to two months, but if Thumbtack only sends a price to potential clients they will never know the difference!
