Complaint / review text:
I have a personal service and tried Thumbtack for at least 6 months. It's worthless.
I got one good client and a few (very few) inquiries from people obviously trying to get something for nothing (or close to it). A friend also tried it and got scammed out of her fee. The clients are obviously looking ONLY for the lowest price -ONLY - and are not a desirable client base. I suspect a lot of the requests are not real - same wording used repeatedly and no responses.
Now Thumbtack won't let you buy individual credits anymore, just batches.
Sorry, there aren't that many good clients! Don't use thumbtack - they suck.
