Trying to find reputable and willing businesses is difficult, expecially if you don't want to pay just to get quotes from professionals in your area. Maybe you are searching for something less than conventional that requires more than a quick glance at a website or proof of a business lisence. Maybe what you need is proof of ability, creativity, or workmanship.
For a business owner, Thumbtack has been a godsend. I am a small company and I need to do as much as I can with a limited budget. I don't want to get caught in the trap of spending too much time on potential leads to have them fizzle into nothing. I also don't need to waste time with customers who have unrealistic expectations. At the end of the day I want enough information to offer a quote and if they accept we can delve further. This is what I love about Thumbtack. People who maybe unaware of what they will have to pay can get several quotes and choose who best fit their needs. Simple and easy.
If you are looking for a place to advertise your business or somewhere to search for a business, try Thumbtack. You won't be sorry!
