Thanks for using Thumbtack!
I truly enjoyed being able to submit quotes for a small fee to customers. My problem began when the cat shutting down on me and I could not submit any quotes or see my sent messages.
When I went to the website it said that my account was deactivated and if I thought it was a mistake to just click on the link and send an email. When I did that and tried to explain what the app was doing to see if I could get communication I got another error message saying that the email was blocked and they did not except any receipts of emails.
It is sad that there is no communication ability between the company/app and those who use it as professionals.
The customers I found through the app are great people and I enjoyed speaking with them and photographing them.
I referred several of my friends who are photographers to this app I hope I didn’t make a mistake because I like to stand by my word.
App needs common functionality
I love using Thumbtack, but I HATE the Apple App. It does not have common functionality like rotating to the screen position. I can’t use my keyboard because the iPad has to be turned upright (portrait position). I need it to be in landscape position.
Plus... I can’t upload files from my iCloud, One drive, or local files to my open bids. The only area it will access is photos. I need to be able to upload PDF files so I can keep all of my communication in Thumbtack and the customer does not have to give me their email address.
I usually have to stick to the website to use Thumbtack the way I need to while on the go, but I would rather us an app.
It Takes Persistence
I’ve been using Thumbtack since 2014. I’m a fashion and product photographer. It’s a great way to generate leads you most likely wouldn’t have gotten any other way. It’s a bit of an investment, minuscule if you compare it to any type of marketing. That has the potential to yield average returns.
Here’s the catch. It can’t be your main source of clientele. It’s simply supplementary. It’s also
very hot and cold. Meaning responding to most requests feels like a gamble.
It’s common to be unsure if the person who is making the request is actually serious about business or not, but persistent effort will begin to sort out the chaff.
One plus is that I’ve stopped using Thumbtack over the last 90 days and I just booked a great client from it yesterday. A person who’s request I responded to in August called and said he is ready, paid his retainer and booked.
I plan to continue to use Thumbtack to supplement my contacts and bring in more business.
