I do cleaning I clean homes!! Leads are anywhere from $50 to sometimes up to $90 which means I only made $20! I only got one job off them and then the poor guy ended up dying.in the end I played Thumbtack almost $300, and they refuse to give you your money back for leads that don’t follow through, My husband uses the same app for doing gutters and somehow my cleaning jobs will show up on his account, one cleaning job showed he only had to pay $9.00 on my account through Thumbtack that same said cleaning job was $29.00!!! I would not use this app,rip off artist!!
Too many people just wanting prices and have no intention of building. At $50,00 plus per lead plus time and money spent driving to meet people that don’t know what they need. Also as a Pro you are NOT supposed to be charged for leads when your calendar is blocked!! Guess what not so, then this company hides behind do no reply e mails instead of answering phone calls. Save time and money, go to Home Adviser or some other reputable business.
