I was curious...
Thumbtack has a new deal where you set a budget for matching customers to you.
So...I give it a whirl. Get my first contact, not gig. Just a contact at this stage of game. 11.06 is charge. So I check to see the link about see your competition.
2 others have also tried for this party.
What are your thoughts?

I'm not sure I understand.

Do they tell you who the competition is or just that there are two others?

Do you tell them your price range or do the customers tell you what they are willing to pay?

You could get SICK - if you keep worriing about what others charge- just feel it out - ask others in the field, you trust - if you charge high - and the customers accept - OK --- if you charge toooo low and get multiple gigs - charge a little more - just don't let others TELL you what to charge. During the 60's-through the 80's I raised my prices $5-$10- each yr with NO Problem - They Pay for what they get - cheap price -cheap show.

Not worried about what others charge at all.
I agree Russo.
I guess what I am saying is I am in wrong field. 3 of us minimum have paid 11.06 to be exact, just to quote a price. None I am aware of have even got the job.

You bet I have a problem with that, especially since there is no proof there was ever a show at all.

I quit Thumbtack for several reasons and that was one of them. If the agency has no reason to care if positive bookings are made, why would they?
