Pop-In Call #10

How Thumbtack Empowers Local Small Business Owners w/ Marie Paoli

Marie Paoli leads the in-person community at Thumbtack, one of the largest marketplaces to connect with local service professionals in the US.

With local small businesses having an increasingly hard time to run a sustainable business today, Thumbtack aims to empower them by growing communities in their local areas.

How does that work exactly? 

That’s what we wanted to find out from Marie Paoli. In this pop-in call we talk about:

  • How Thumbtack works together with small business owners to convene, nurture, and grow communities in their local areas
  • How its ambassador program gives the best and most engaged users a platform to design and build their own community structures
  • Marie’s personal outlook for how communities will develop in the future

Listen to the co-matter podcast anywhere by subscribing to iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, Stitcher or your favorite podcasting app (search for "co-matter").
