I'd say that 25% of the time the potential customer doesn't look at the bid, BUT when that happens you get your 2 or 3 credits refunded. Overall the leads seem to be genuine, some prescreening has taken place, and for the most part, there is someone legit on the other end.
I buy leads from another service with a monthly fee, but I prefer the pay as you go system of Thumbtack. I find the referral link a little clunky, but it's workable. I focus on getting more of referrals over on another site. Overall it's a win for me.
I play jazz and blues, solo and generally have 3-4 gigs a monthy. Robert
