Thumbtack helps you find new customers and grow your business.

If you are in need of a service or you are a professional looking to grow your business, then I would recommend you sign up with Thumbtack

A day does not go by where for one reason or another I have to get on Google and search for something. The question really is who doesn’t do this in this day and age?

Have you ever heard of Thumbtack?

Hire a local professionalI came across this great services when my company was looking for a professional photographer to take some corporate head-shots.
It’s basically a website where customers can go looking to hire professional to help them accomplish their personal projects. They have to answer a series of specific questions about their needs. Then Thumbtack reviews the request and sends it to the appropriate professionals that have signed up for the service with those particular skills. These professionals then bid on the project and the users gets to choose.

It is a great idea and I have used it several times since then as a customer. I have now signed up as a professional as well, which helps me generate leads for all my freelance work.

Searching through bookmarks made easy

If you use bookmarks when browsing, Dewey is an app you must have

If you are like me you may have over 100 cool pages bookmark on your browser with the idea that down the line at some point you are going to need to use that blog article as a reference. But searching through bookmarks seems to takes longer than actually going back on Google and searching for the website all over again.

Well worry no more!

Searching through bookmarks made easy

About a year ago I came a across this very cool app that I now use on a daily basis on Google’s Chrome Browser (which I find to be the best web browser out there right now). The app is called Dewey. It’s a quick install and easy to use interface. Just type the keyword and it will find your bookmark for you.
