thumbtack

Don't waste you're money on this site, people want you to do the work for free.. I bid 450.00 for a job it would have been a good profit.. got an email from the customer forwarding the bid from someone else saying they will do the same for 220.00... So that person is doing all the work for free just to get a customer.. Customer asked if i could go lower!! lol..

thumb tack and all these stupid apps are ruining the business also everyone is an expert.. Just cause you have a snowmobile trailer and a old truck doesn't mean you know how to do what we do.

Oh well i get to catch up on my sponge-bob at lease samething with plowz website... people under bid you on driveway by 20$ and people will plow commercial lots for 100$ good luck...

I know, right? Well, we had seen it all and not impressed. This cheap labor will come and bite them in the rear end (we seen numerous examples). They usually get what they pay for.

This industry no longer profitable and reminds circus

Well I gave Thumbtack a try because I heard good things about it in other forums. Unlike Homeadvisor it doesn't charge you per lead, unless you place a bid than it will "charge" you. If the lead isn't the right type of lead, you can get your "money" back.

You have to buy a number of credits, and each lead you place a bid on will cost you a certain number of credits.
