    Thumbtack is essential for my businesses growth. It's the best lead platform I have found.
  • Not worth the money

    By 12$gjah
    Customers only respond 1% of the time :/ not worth the money. Credits are too much for what the job is worth and most customers are really just looking to cheat the provider by paying ridiculously low and unacceptable wages.
  • Room to improve

    By Scrub bubble
    After 18 quotes and only 3 hires I'm not 80% satisfied. When looking over insights it's apparent customers want a pro but are not serious about hiring one. I've underbid 95% on the average spectrum to see not one pro was hired. We are required to pay to quote. The customer searching should be required to pay to find a pro. They'd take it more seriously. And Thumbtack has frozen several times opening my app on my Apple IPhone slowing this Pro down. Not to mention I spent a good 45 minutes filling out answers to my profile saving each one for a request to pop up and delete my work!!! And keep reading more'll become suspicious. Watch out for customers who live out of town and need you to clean that want to mail you a payment want your mailing address and a resume only to steal your info or fraud your bank account by cashing their check! Just saying there's some pros and some cons!
  • Great app!

    By Drakonist
    It has helped my business substantially, great company to work with!
  • Great way to earn $$ while looking for permanent work!

    By Boogermom
    I started with Thumbtack almost 2 months ago; its very easy to use as a Pro. It's a great way for those of us who are in-between jobs to earn money using the skills we already have. I appreciate the simple credit system; once you buy/use the credits to quote, that's it - no further commission or obligation to Thumbtack!
  • It works

    By Bigbang31
    I've used the app for a couple of weeks now. I've gotten hired about 4 times. Over all I'm happy with the experience. I wish it required the owner of home to enter more information. And pictures. It's hard to give a quote on what heater install without more information or a faucet install without getting more info. The credits can be a bit expensive depending on the job. I bid on the ones that are 2 or 3 credits. But I've seen a few that were higher. So it seems the prices have increased. For 50 credits they now want 100 bucks. A few months ago I think it was around 65 for 50 credits. Plus they have increased the cost of sending quotes. I just say a water heater install they want 7 credits so that would be 14 bucks. That's nuts!
  • This app has become so much more effective...

    By Maestro Mitch
    I started with Thumbtack about a year ago. It was a slow start but has picked up to be a significant portion of my business income. The things I like best is that they do significant advertising nationally to promote use of the consumer end. Recent improvements such as a scheduler and direct customer communication add even more value. Yes, paying to bid seems like a bit of an annoyance but its quite a bit better than other forms of advertising in that your bid goes to someone looking for your service. My advice is to get the background check and don't expect it to swamp you with business overnight. It will take about six months to get established and for your reputation to grow. But you end up with an effective and dedicated marketing/communication platform in the mid to longrun.

  • Great tool for small businesses

    By madeye_15
    Thumbtack is great for small businesses just starting out that don't want to spend a lot on advertising and still want to be able to get their Company name out there and get reviews. It would be better if you could send the people submitting requests one templates message though when you need them to clarify more information before you can actually provide a quote. Then you don't have to waste a credit just to request more information before knowing if you are able to perform the job or not.
  • Was ready to give up!!

    By MinMaseR724STW
    Thumbtack was an app that I felt like was easy to conquer. After I sent a countless number of quotes I felt like I was not reaching people the way I wanted. As I was on the verge of giving up on the app, I decide to create a game plan and a different approach to each request and since I've done that I've landed 5 big time jobs out of the 8 quotes that i sent in a two week span. Overall I have landed many new fitness clients. And from those connections I've made even more connections. Thumbtack was a way for me to connect with the people that used to close their doors on me or just not take me seriously. If it's not working for you, don't quit, some times you just need to tweak your profile or your quote. No matter how good you think it is, someone else may see the exact same thing and say it's terrible. Don't quit.
