I got a buddy who uses them for sod leads and tree removals.. I ran a few leads for him that were close to me and one customer told me that I was the lowest bid but out of her price range lol. I bid like $800 so idk what to say.. I know i would be pissed if I spent $20 on a lead and the customer thinks sod should be $100 a pallet installed.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I made a profile on thumbtack, seems like a good idea, but I have never heard of it, so I don't know if its as big as service magic. I think i'm going to stay away from sm for now.

i think thumbtack has to be fairly new. I heard about it a few months ago. I get leads every now and again, but the best part is you only pay for what you bid. i think it cost like $3 to bid, sometimes they have a sale and it's $1.50 or $2.

Yea you are right!!!


The thing is I get a good bit of leads from it but it seems like a lot of tire kickers and then you land a couple really good jobs from it that makes me hang on for a while longer hoping for another good hit!!

Crazy!!

The guy keeps calling me and harassing me now, keeps leaving me messages like "Oh my god, we keep getting all these calls for lawn care" and "I guess your not serious about using our service, I have plenty of other businesses to give them to" and i'm thinking, yea this is defiantly making me want to use your service even more now. He told me multiple times that "if you get a bad lead just tell me and i'll replace it free" I don't believe that one bit.

They called me yesterday. I told him I don't want his servicejunk or whatever it is. He said he'd follow up in a few months, I laughed and said "Ya, because I cut grass when its snowing. Stop calling me."

I thought about giving them a try until I read the reviews on them, haha that changed my mind very very quickly.

I'm about the block the guys number, I swear if he calls one more time.

this is what they do. As soon as you fill out a profile the calls and emails start. Theyll even delete your profile after a while if you dont upgrade.

One of the biggest complaints is paying for bad leads. They say theyll refund you for them but never do. The best thing to do with any place like this is google reviews.
