So this one is for the other photographers, not so much the readers – but hey, if you have any kind of service this could work for you too! I found this cool website called Thumbtack. It’s based in the US (and doesn’t even let you choose Canada) but I put in my address as Ogdensburg, NY since that’s the closest. It really doesn’t matter, because I have to travel to them anyway.
Thumbtack lets clients search for what they are looking for, put in what they want and their budget – and lets you quote them for your services (or ignore them if their price is ridiculously low. lol)
If you refer others to join, you can get free credits – otherwise it does cost a little bit of money per quote. It’s no different than Google Ads, you gotta pay someone for getting you work!
I’m still new to using it but have sent a couple of quotes so far and hoping it gets me somewhere! If you want to give it a shot, there’s no harm checking it out :) Dying to shoot some weddings!
