I signed up for Thumbtack exactly 18 days ago. I submitted 21 detailed quotes to 21 leads I received throughout those 18 days. Usually I received about 3-15 leads every day (mostly from my area, and some out of state) and the reason I did not respond to more leads was...

Most of the leads are fake that are written by Thumbtack employees or a hired 3rd party contractor. For the scam to be profitable for Thumbtack the quote has to be "viewed" by...

I have been using Thumbtack for about 3 months, have spent probably $ 300.00 in credits, and am starting to think the whole thing is a SCAM. Sure, I have gotten a few legitimate customers, but I seriously doubt the authenticity of some of these "requests"...more like...

I agree 100% that they have gone bad and now that they have this "instant match" system it is even worse! If you don't allow them to shop clients for you and pay extra for quotes, you won't receive them. We did a test with other trainers and set all our settings the...

Thumbtack is a scam without a shadow of a doubt. When you've run a business for 10-15 years you get to know your market intimately and you get a good idea of the average job request and the form they take. So when you see the job requests that Thumbtack send you, and...
