Thumbtack is changing. We’re making it easier for customers to find your business and for you to win the jobs you most want. Because Thumbtack wasn’t perfect — it took too long for pros like you to find the customers you need.
So we built a new Thumbtack — one that’s more focused than ever on helping you to succeed. Today, we’re laser-focused on:
- Connecting you with more of the right customers.
- Making it easy to stand out and get hired.
- Creating new, better ways to manage your jobs.
For the customers who are looking to hire you on Thumbtack, that means:
- Faster results. Now customers start seeing pros right away so they can hire you faster.
- More pros to choose from. More than five pros at a time. That means more customers see your business. And less missing out.
- More hires. The faster we get customers to pros, the less likely they are to abandon their search, and the more likely you are to win their business.
In the next few months we’ll be releasing new tools that help you set a budget, calculate ROI, and organize your customer interactions — everything you need to manage and grow a business, all in one place.
What you can do today.
If you’re already using Instant Match there are a few ways to give yourself a strong start.
- Check your preferences so we’re only putting you in front of the right customers for your business.
- Update your profile because it will get you hired. Make sure you have lots of photos and reviews, and an A+ description of your business. Get tips on how to update your profile here.
With Thumbtack moving towards a more instant experience for customers, we can’t stress enough how important it is to set up Instant Match. Customers get an estimate from you fast (which they love), and you only pay if they reach out to talk about a job.
But don’t take it from us. Read what pros like you are saying to get an idea of what the new Thumbtack is — and how it can help you grow your business.
