    I've been using Thumbtack since the very beginning and although there have b been alot of changes/experiments it has still been incredibly useful. Not to mention, your clients have the option of posting a review and I made sure I asked all of my Thumbtack clients to review me. This has resulted in 20 reviews and all of them being 5 star. Which has brought me a ton of new business. I highly recommend Thumbtack to any small business owner or sub contractor.

    Thumbtack has actually been really great for me for booking photography shoots! I recently moved to a new location and had to start rebuilding a clientele and Thumbtack has helped so much. I’ve booked a ton of paid jobs through this site! Investing in yourself never hurts, it only helps you advance further when you believe in yourself and are good at what you do!

    Takes some getting used to but finally figuring out how best to get responses. So far so good would like to see the prices go down for each quote sent $5 is a bit steep

    I’ve been a pro on thumbtack since well before they had an app to download - just a website. It’s been great - much more cost effective than HomeAdvisor and Angie’s List for me.
  • Great for any business :)

    I started using Thumbtack to expand my private music teaching business, and it helped my studio triple in size in just a few months. It's great for networking with clients, and the app is really easy to use. Highly recommended for any freelancer out there!
  • Great Way To Find New Clients

    I love almost everything about thumbtack as a personal trainer always looking for new clients. It suggests me proper clientele via the instant match without me having to do anything with a strong user base. I just wish it had more customization for professionals to weed out people that just do not fit your criteria!
  • I would push some blame to the client and not as much the developers

    I’m a trim carpenter in Oklahoma City with upwards of 8 years of experience doing all sorts of trim. Doors, case, base, custom cabinets, crown, beams, stair cases, custom wood mantles, custom vent hoods, arched pediments and accents, etc... all high end. I’ve had thumbtack for 6 months roughly and I’ve began to notice a lot of clients interested in using thumbtack are between ages 20-30. I, myself am within that age group. However, I’m going to discriminate against this age group and say, they cannot afford the rate of service I provide. They are just getting out of college, trying to get into a career, start a family, pay off student loans. They don’t have 5k to drop on a standard kitchen remodel. I’m not greedy in any way and give discounts to customers as I deem necessary. I am very supportive of any persons fair wage for the task they complete. On most thumbtack projects I’ve completed. I’ve averaged $18-$20/hour when my yearly average on other work for 2017 was $30/hr+. Of the clients I’ve serviced, I have not had one displeased. Because there is more to business than just the work you do. You have to market and sell your services and convince the other person your services are what they require and make them feel that the high level of service they are getting justifies spending $300-$500 more than the jack of all trades who might not pay as close attention to the small details as I would. I’ve been beat out by bids that were $100 less because “the other guy was a little cheaper.” For the carpentry business, I have not had success with this app. Yes it is a great idea in its entirety and could become very successful but the people it attracts do not care about quality. They care about the price tag which is no way to run my business. If you push your quality and customer service up, the money will take care of itself. If you put me face to face with a client who contacted me for a bid on their custom house, 9 times out of 10. I can talk them out of the other guy they want to use who may save them $3,000 total because with that $3,000 discount, you may get $30,000 worth of headache on your brand new 500k house. This is my experience with the service.
