For the past year I’ve been using Thumbtack.com to get clients.
They are currently in many markets across the US.
If someone is in the market for your particular service they will post a request for a quote. Then up to 5 service providers on Thumbtack can provide quotes for the job.
Thumbtack does charge the service provider credits to submit quotes.
They are currently in need of more service providers for their site and are offering a referral promotion.
If you sign up for free using this link http://bullseyevideo.com/ThumbtackTrial
they will give you free credits to try the service. The list below is specific service providers they are looking for in Phoenix. If you are outside of Phoenix you can still use the link.
