    Experience with Thumbtack Leads

    I've noticed an uptick in the number of leads some of our doctors are getting from Thumbtack.com, a site we use regularly as a citation source. However, the cost to submit a quote for the procedure is $5.99.

    Have any of you followed up with leads through Thumbtack, and what was your experience like? I just want to make sure that its worth the money to even reach out to these people, or are most of these bogus or low quality leads.

    Re: Experience with Thumbtack Leads

    Good call, Mike. I canít say I've got any experience with Thumbtack leads. (Like you, Iíve just used it as a citation source and obviously as a place to stick lots of photos.) Thumbtack results seem to rank pretty well organically, from what Iíve seen, so I think thereís probably potential there. But Iíd be really interested in hearing what you or someone else finds regarding the paid leads. At $6 a pop, I would think you could do a pretty quick micro-test and just see how many wallets open up.

    I have seen the same increase in leads from Thumbtack but I have not tested or tried it out! I was also curious!

    So it sounds like most of us local folks are all in the same boat at the moment. I am going to talk to my team today about it and see if we can parter with a client on any new leads that come in and see what we can do. I'll let you all know how it pans out! Thanks for the feedback.

    I've gotten some leads but have been very wary after reading these negative things about thumbtack.com

    some say it's a scam as it seems they generate fake leads to buy:
