With customers having access to hundreds of thousands of professionals and local businesses online, finding leads is no easy feat. Whether you’re a lawyer, an electrician, a house cleaner, or an HVAC expert, you need a steady flow of jobs to keep your business going. Nurturing those leads and turning them into repeat customers is a different ball game altogether.

But what if you can merge the digital tools you need to manage, scale, and market your business — all in one powerful platform?

That’s where the Thumbtack + GoSite integration steps in to help you win more jobs with less effort. GoSite and Thumbtack share a similar mission: to empower local businesses with a strong online presence so they can better serve their customers. 

This partnership makes it very easy, convenient, and affordable for local businesses and professionals to leverage the technology they need to build long-term relationships and increase their sales.

What You Can Do With Thumbtack + GoSite

People search Thumbtack for nearly any service you can think of — from home improvement services like roofing, flooring, remodeling, and handyman jobs to HVAC general contractors, personal training, massage therapy, dog training, house cleaning, and more. 

It’s the perfect online platform for increasing visibility and connecting with customers who have a job they need done. But what happens after a match on the platform?

That’s the perfect time to use GoSite to turn those leads into sales. By connecting your Thumbtack account to GoSite, you can easily keep track of your leads in Contact Hub and communicate with them through the Messenger platform. 

Here are some of the ways you can use Thumbtack + GoSite to engage more customers and expand your reach.

Let more people find you online

Build a comprehensive profile on Thumbtack — fast and easy. Impress prospects by leaving a great first impression. The stronger your profile is, the more work you’ll get. Optimize your profile by including a short and sweet summary of your services and skills, photos and videos, business hours, service areas, and links to all your online profiles.

Get matched with the right leads in your area

Set your target preferences for your Thumbtack profile and change them over time. That way, you won’t waste time on bad leads. Reach the right people by defining the type of work you are open to. Make it a habit to update your work availability, number of days or hours, job types, and travel areas. Plus, you can also explore the online platform to discover which of your services are in demand in your locality.

Offer effortless booking

Provide a complete customer engagement experience by letting your customers book your services online. That’s how the team behind local business Picture Hanging ATL turned a side hustle into a full-time thriving business.

CEO Troy Smith and his partner Shawnee maximized the Thumbtack + GoSite integration to turn leads into repeat customers.

“We get leads from Thumbtack and then redirect them to GoSite. They go on the site and book in just a few clicks. Then I just get a notification on my phone saying a customer booked again. It’s hassle-free for our repeat customers.”  

-Shawnee Jones, Picture Hanging ATL

With GoSite’s Booking tool, businesses can easily reschedule appointments and reduce no-shows with automatic text confirmations and reminders for customers.

Showcase customer reviews

Share more positive reviews from your Thumbtack customers so more people won’t think twice about trusting you with their business. And with GoSite’s Reviews tool, getting more online reviews is easier than ever. You can send review requests via SMS, email, or Messenger or use review request links across major platforms. 

Streamline and personalize communications

Whenever you’re matched with a lead on Thumbtack, it will be automatically entered into GoSite’s Contact Hub. This lets you seamlessly manage customer relationships — from payment history to text messages — all in one place. You can track leads, send messages, provide promotional offers, and personalize all customer interactions with just a click. 

Plus, the integration works best if you're using GoSite’s Messenger tool, as it enables you to start conversations and respond to leads right in your GoSite Dashboard.
