Good leads resource
As a 2 person mobile IT business, generating leads has been one of the hardest things to keep up with. Thumbtack provides folks looking for computer support and related areas of service and let's us bid for $3-25 depending on the potential value of the project and the number of competing providers in our area. We have access to business and residential customers and have bid about 100 jobs in the last 5 months and earned about 10 new customers. About 1/2 of those have referred us to other folks or hired us back for additional work. Definitely pays for itself if you work the leads, ask questions in your quote instead of using a catch all template and follow up with a message or phone call where possible. We list our diagnostic fee and discount the first hour then clearly state in the quote how we handle pricing on longer jobs. We receive about 2 leads per day and sometimes up to 5 after building our business and brand in Thumbtack and asking clients to review and refer to us. We will reach Pro status shortly and I'm happy with this service and have exposure in areas I wouldn't normally be able to network in, i.e. Communities up to 30 miles away, as I defined our territory. I also love that it's all mobile and sends me text alerts when responses are needed or bids are available!

This is what we like to hear. Feel free to reach out with any other questions.
Well, let me begin by saying, like others, I too was about to get scammed by a heating and air company! I was told that my unit was too old and that anything manufactured over 20 years ago, the parts are impossible to find. My only option was to replace the entire unit that cost $5,000.
I contacted Guardian and talked with Eveline. She was very courteous and explained their company’s policies, services and options for financing available to me. Richard Eppers was scheduled to come to my home and just as Eveline explained, Richard was very prompt on arriving. It only took him about twenty minutes before he had determined that, I did not need to replace my system, it only needed a condenser and coolant. The level of professionalism exhibited by Richard surpassed all I have ever experienced with the heating and air industry.
Before Richard arrived the temperature in my home was 80 degrees and within an hour, I was enjoying the comfort of my home of 72 degrees. I can not begin to tell you how fortunate I was to contact Guardian. I know that eventually my unit, being 22 years old, will need to be replaced. When that time comes, I definitely will be using Guardian to replace the entire system. Trust me, Richard and Eveline are the very best in this industry. They definitely “save the day with Expert Service” for me and my family! I highly recommended Guardian for all of your heating, air, plumbing and electrical needs!

I couldn’t have done it without Thumbtack
I look at the reviews as I did when I first tested Thumbtack and I read stories like , I wasted time and money on Thumbtack and unless you have 200 reviews and seventy five hires you’ll just be spending money with no return. Those statements couldn’t be more wrong. I could only speak for myself when I first started using Thumbtack I didn’t know how to make the site work for me as well but I didn't give up just like any business you have to invest in advertising and have an angle that works for you. Through the tips they offer and seeing what other people have done in the past you put together a system in place that works for you. I’ve only been with Thumbtack for two years and yes I started with no reviews but I did what they told me I looked up old clients and asked them if they would write a review for me and as long as you did the right thing by that customer they were happy to so I sent them a link. Like I said it’s been two years and so far I have 28 reviews and twice that in hires. Not everyone likes to take the time and writes reviews but some do. I ask all my customers to , and so far it’s been 28 for me my rating is 4.8 out of 28 I’m happy with that. Nothing in this world just happens you have to always shoot for the stars and work hard for it.
