Thumbtack connects you with the customers you need.
Here’s how it works.
You’ll notice Thumbtack works a little differently using Instant Match. If you’ve set it up, take a look at Understanding Instant Match.
Step 1: Set Preferences
Set up your profile and preferences.
Create a profile for your business and set preferences for the types of jobs you’re interested in.
Step 2: Browse Jobs
Customers submit job requests.
Using Instant Match, your estimate gets sent to customers the instant they make a request, for free. Otherwise, you’ll pay to respond to each request yourself with a tailored estimate.
Step 3: CONNECT WITH CUSTOMERS
Connect with the customer.
Interested customers can follow up by calling, messaging, or booking an appointment. With Instant Match, this is when you pay: when someone contacts you.
Step 4: Get Hired
Get yourself hired.
When you hear from a customer, it’s your time to shine. Follow up quickly and tell them why you’re the right pro for the job.
Step 5: See Progress
Track your success and adjust your settings.
See how you’re doing compared to your competition, and get suggestions on how to improve along the way.
