Thumbtack Begins Syndicating Pros with New Partner Network, Starting with Google
by Marco Zappacosta
Thumbtack is expanding its reach to help customers find high-quality local service professionals. As a first step in building out the Thumbtack Partner Network, we’ve teamed up with Local Services by Google. When someone searches for a local service job (e.g. “house cleaner near me”) on Google, Thumbtack pro listings can appear at the top of Google search results, allowing users to easily contact professionals directly from Google Search.
Our community of pros is at the core of the Thumbtack platform. For the first decade of Thumbtack’s existence, we have built and refined various technologies to enable customers and pros to match with each other. This partnership will help our pros reach more customers, driving more jobs and business to the backbone of our country — small businesses.
At Thumbtack, our mission is to help everyone do life’s work with joy and purpose. We want to make it easier to get more done. As a part of this mission, we are committed to connecting local pros with the right customers so they can build successful businesses on our platform. Each day, Thumbtack works to connect pros in every zip code across the country with high-quality customer leads.
This is an exciting step forward. And we have more to come — stay tuned.
