Thumbtack helping consumers hire local service professionals

Marco Zappacosta, the co-founder & CEO of joins Enterprise Radio.

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Marco Zappacosta discuss the following:

  • What is Thumbtack?
  • How did you get started & what was the process?
  • How is it different than what’s out there (like Angie’s List, Yelp, Craigslist, etc.)?
  • Where are we headed?
  • What have you learned?

What is Thumbtack?

Why can you go online right now and buy any product you want but you can’t do the same for tutors, handymen, dog walkers, or other local services? Thumbtack is changing that.

Thumbtack isn’t like typical local search directories that simply return business listings with ratings and reviews, leaving you no better off than the paper Yellow Pages.

Instead, Thumbtack gives you the ability to vet, contact and book service professionals the moment you find them.
