Three weeks ago we spoke with a voice-over artist who was referred to Thumbtack by a friend.
He checked out our site, liked what he saw, and almost signed up.
There was one problem, though. He had no way to showcase his primary skill: his voice.
He called our offices and we spoke with him. He told us he’d love to list on Thumbtack, but that his listing wouldn’t serve much of a purpose unless he could upload audio samples of his work.
He wasn’t the only person we’ve heard this from. This feature has been requested not only by voice-over artists, but also by musicians, language tutors and guitar teachers.
Our engineering team took these suggestions to heart and is proud to roll out a new feature today: the ability to upload audio tracks of your work to your Thumbtack listing.
Managing audio files should be pretty simple – log in to your account, go to your Dashboard, click on “Manage video & audio”, and use our tool to add audio files. We currently accept files from SoundCloud and MP3, MP4/AAC, and WAV files that are linked from another site.
Hopefully this new feature will be… (pun alert)… music to your ears!
