Save time and effort while gaining an advantage with customers.
Still not sure about Instant Match? Here are four reasons why it’s better for your business.
- Save time. We’ll look at all the requests in your market and connect you with the right ones.
When you quote manually, it can be time-consuming to sort through multiple job requests to identify the ones you’re interested in. With Instant Match, you tell us the types of jobs you want (and the ones you don’t), where you like to work, and when you’re available. Then we’ll match you with the customers who are a great fit, for free.
- Skip the work of creating quote after quote–we’ll do it for you.
It can be a lot of effort to put together a individualized quote for each customer. When you set up Instant Match, you give us very detailed information about your prices so that we can create a tailored estimate for each customer we match you with. It’s easy to preview what these will look like so that you can be sure we correctly understand how you price. And if your prices change over time, you can update them whenever you like.
- Stop rushing to send your quotes. They’ll now be sent for you, instantly.
Thumbtack now matches you instantly to the right customers based on your availability and the preferences you set. Customers love to get an immediate response, which give pros who use Instant Match an advantage over pros who aren’t. This also frees you up to spend time on the work you love, not monitoring a stream of requests around the clock.
- Only pay when an interested customer responds. It’s now free to send quotes.
With manual quoting, you pay to send a quote. And, sometimes, customers don’t respond. Pros have let us know it can be frustrating to spend the money (and the time) to send a quote and then hear nothing back.
Thumbtack matches you instantly to customers who fit your availability and preferences. Once customers see your tailored price estimate and profile, they can reach out to you. If they don’t, you pay nothing. With Instant Match, your credit card is only charged when someone messages, calls, schedules a consult with you, or hires you–whichever happens first. Want to see prices in advance? Take a look.
- Only pay for value with Instant Match.
Keep in mind that when you connect with someone after they’ve seen your tailored price estimate and profile, they’re much more likely to turn into a paying customer at that point. This is why the cost of hearing back from a customer with Instant Match is higher than the cost to send a quote manually–customers who respond to you are more valuable since they’re warmer leads.
Here’s a quick summary of how it works to send quotes yourself vs. getting in front of customers with Instant Match.
