I have already quoted close to 20 and have no work. Got one response, which never turned into a client.
I have a Masters Degree, 25 years experience, and my rates are cheap. I have pics, 10 5-star reviews, and a great profile. I am frustrated by this an broke too! I have heard of people making this work, but I do not personally know of anyone who has gotten any work from Thumbtack.
I think this is a scam.
I believe this is a way for under-qualified amateurs to appear professional and eat from the professional pie. I will not be using this service any longer.
Product or Service Mentioned: Thumbtack Leads.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
