I don't understand what it is you are all doing wrong or if it's because you really never give it your all because you weren't sure about the Thumbtack.com service to begin with and all ready had your mind made up that it wasn't good and have spent all of your time trying to drum up as much drama and negativity that you could about Thumbtack that you lost your true drive in trying to make it work. All of you I am sure love Facebook.
This is the second time I have been on this site since my first post this one a year ago or so. I wish I could tell you what you're doing wrong. It just puzzles me. We have been doing very well with Thumbtack and I have remained #1 out of 30 or so others in the same trade in Phoenix AZ 85051 now for a year and 75% of them are licensed and have a registered business name.
Actually most of our business this year has come from Thumbtack.
Sorry it's not working for you all. Seems really strange.

My partner and have made roughly $15,650 in the past 6 months from our add on Thumbtack.com. and were not even licensed.
***, we could have done a lot more if we weren't already busy with our add on Craigslist. When we ran across this site and read the complaints all we could do is laugh. There's also been a couple big jobs that we wouldn't have landed from our Craigslist add if it hadn't been for Thumbtack.com just because I had a background check done by Thumbtack and thumbtack had verified all of my credentials We Got the Job. A $3000 job and $1000 of that was material which the customer paid for and that left us each $1000 for labor and therefore we don't need a license.
The job only took 3 days. This was just one example of many jobs we've done for Thumbtack.com. Also, if you think for one minute that we're going to give you our link or tell you how to find us on Thumbtack.com. Well think again, we're not.
We don't need your drama and don't care for your poor me Pity Parties. Your All Just Dumb Or Just Plain Lazy.
We Thank You Thumbtack.com For Making A Difference In Our Lives. Oh, Thank You For Making Our Wallets Heavier Too.
