This is the worst way for someone in the financial services business to generate clients. I have been on Thumbtack since last year and have generated zero clients and zero income, while thumbtack taken hundreds from me.

Do Not Use Thumbtack!!!!!!!! most of the people who requested my services were people in the same business as me and were, "just seeing how this works", it became a costly mistake and a gamble spending so much money on each "bid".

Following up on bids was met with silence, I mostly think that these were fake bidders just getting you to spend money. I would hope that this is not the case, but a large majority of bidders never replied back, never answered messages and never answered the phone.

Review about: Thumbtack Bidding.

Reason of review: Bad quality.

Monetary Loss: $678.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

Thumbtack is a waste of time and money. I think the legitimate people who use the site are just window shopping and also want a deal.

I think some people think Thumbtack is like an on demand Groupon. Also I have six people in my industry in my city who told me they send out fake requests via Thumbtack to see what the competition charges.

Yes!! Yes!!!

I. too, am a service provider with Thumbtack. I'm not in financial services, but my experience with them has been the exact. Same.

Thing. I've not had a viable "bid' from them in several months, and they charge me $13 to $15 per QUOTE!! The last five to respond to my bids never followed up after repeated attempts on my part to contact them. I thought it was just me.

Recently, I encountered a person with his own service business, but I honestly could not even mention Thumbtack to him as a source. That was when I realized how far their brand had fallen in my estimation.
