I ran across a reference to Thumbtack on Chris Brogans blog earlier today and followed his link to Thumbtack.com. I think it is a really powerful tool for people providing freelance type services but I suppose you could utilize it for other things as well. I recently blogged about On the Fly Expertise connections and consider it a related subject. Please let me know what you think via comments.

I find thumbtack to be a scam. No way to know if the leads are genuine or just BS. This site will not attract good talent, thus people who actually need work done wont find good people. This has some money backing it, but its a total rip off.
I came here after searching for "heather madison thumbtack".
Seem's they're doing some scraping and contacting people.
However they didn't get my email from CL, but from my site. I for one am not concerned about this because I regularly contact other webmasters for links, guest posts, and offers to buy their sites or sell them one of mine.
As long as I don't continue to get any more emails from Thumbtack then I'm fine with that.
Actually signing up for Thumbtack now, so I have no problems with them.
I'd watch the CL scraping though ;)
There's a reason most networks won't accept CL traffic since there's so much shady marketing going on over there.
I did not contact Soft Layer, I did receive a unsolicited Email invite by Thumbtack to join. Here is the Email from firstname.lastname@example.org
"Hey there, I'm reaching out to you because Thumbtack is getting a lot of job leads for furniture refinishers, and I'm looking for another furniture refinisher who is interested in taking on more clients. After checking out your website I think you are a great fit for Thumbtack and I'd love to start sending you job leads. Please fill out a few details about your skills and rates, and I'll start forwarding you potential new clients. If you have any questions about what Thumbtack can provide, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, Heather
-- Unsubscribe Link: One-click unsubscribe. 1001 Page St, Suite #45, San Francisco, CA This message is an advertisement." Seems she has sent me 9 unsolicited Emails since April 9th, same email with different jobs like "payroll providers." I am surprised my Google "Spam" didn't catch it.
This is not a good idea if you can't edit the imports because the reviews will go to everyone in your Email box, competitors, suppliers and customers whom you have had disputes with. Then you can get a negative review and then you will have to try to hire someone to remove it.
I have a SEO who very recently has preformed spammy SEO, with low hanging keywords no one will search. I want them to take it down and give me a refund. I doubt they will do this and it will probably rank confusing my prospects. What should I do?
I got a notice from Google my Email may have been hacked into. Later found the IP address and it is Thumbtack out of Dallas or possibly Arizona. IP 220.127.116.11 I think they are data miners. I don't trust them.
I too, just received SPAM from Heather Madison <email@example.com>:
I've been searching for swimming instructors, and I was excited to find you.
It's too hard to find trustworthy, quality service providers, and Thumbtack is changing that. We're growing really fast, we need more swimming instructors, and I think you're a perfect fit!
Posting on Thumbtack is a great way to advertise yourself and it's completely free for service providers like you.
All you need to do to post your information is visit thumbtack.com.
I did not ask for the service, nor did I put my eMail address out for this sort of spam. I am reporting the site to the FTC as spam and unsolicited marketing.
thumbtack.com is SO SPAMMY! Every single time I place an ad on craigslist.com (it's the ONLY place I advertise!) I get SPAM from "Heather Madison" representing thumbtack.com. I hope they get sued for SPAMING! Hard working people are on craiglist.com searching for real jobs and we are forced to delete and deal with unwanted and unsolicited SPAM mail from thumbtack.com. If the site was any good, they wouldnt be resorting to illegal tactics in order to draw traffic to their site.
Here is a copy of the latest SPAM I received from thumbtack.com:
Hey there, I just received a request from a user on our site for a housecleaner in San Francisco, and I thought you'd be a perfect fit. Here's what they need: I have a 2 bedroom apt in the mission that's ~1000 sf. I do not have cleaning supplies, so I will need the cleaner to provide his / her own. We would like the cleaning to occur during the week and someone can be home during the workday while the cleaning occurs. If you are interested, please respond to this customer now: http://www.thumbtack.com/request/nsrma8h7 Thanks, and I hope this works out for you! ~Heather Heather Madison firstname.lastname@example.org 415-545-8225 1001 Page St, Suite #45, San Francisco, CA P.S. Wondering about Thumbtack? We're an online marketplace for local services. List your service with us here after you bid on the job to get more leads like this! P.P.S. A little tip for you: other housecleaners may also be contacting the buyer about this, so you should contact this person as soon as you can. :-)
We received essentially the same spam, as jonathanacohen, only directed towards Wedding Planners, which we are not. And when I searched for a local Florist, which we are, I received a list of hits that included shops hundreds of miles from the search target.
PROFILES AND OFFERS CANNOT USE TECHNIQUES TO AVOID OR CIRCUMVENT THUMBTACK FEES
Not good at all.
Got a spam from them and wasn't impressed. The implication from "Heather Madison" was that it was a personal email - subject: "Looking for copywriters". Body starts: "Hey Jonathan, I've been searching for copywriters, and I was excited to find you."
They won't be getting my business as a provider or a seeker of services.
Was looking up for reviews for thumbtack.com I found this helpful and your services interesting. Thanks for the great informatoin.
