Here’s some simple math: Professionals that use Thumbtack and have at least 1 review get hired 70 percent more than other pros on Thumbtack without reviews. 70 percent!
In other words, it’s a great idea to ask your customers to post a review on your profile. If they’re delighted with your work, they’ll be more than happy to do it—and the sooner you get reviews, the faster your business grows.
As Lauren Lindley, a photographer on Thumbtack puts it: Send former clients a link to your Thumbtack page to testify to your skill. Future clients rely heavily on reviews to decide—help them choose you.
Don’t be worried about not having all perfect reviews either. Our research shows that reviews that are not all 5 star are more credible with consumers – it’s the overall tone of the comments that counts.
