I am a professional photographer and I get at least 5 opportunities a week from Thumbtack.Most of the 'first' names of the people seeking a photographer are unpronounceable which lends me to think that a lot of this is fake because when I do submit a bid, I never hear back from anyone.

I even tried to underbid by low balling my fees and still do not hear from anyone, yet Thumbtack wants me to spend more money for credits.

Overall, I think Thumbtack provides a lot of fake customer names and just takes money for credits.In better words...no jobs.

Had an Experience with Thumbtack?

The above comment is meaningless nonsense talk. Seems to be written by a 6 year old, or better yet someone from overseas.
