Thumbtack is one of San Francisco’s hottest start-ups, with more than $15M in funding from some of the world’s most respected investors. We are changing the way people find and book service providers in the U.S.
We have a large amount of service posts that need snippets.
WHAT ARE SNIPPETS?
Snippets are very short keyword-rich summaries of service listings. They're about 180 to 200 characters (NOT words) long. Snippets also have titles, which also contain at least one keyword.
Here's an example:
Snippet Title: Celebrity Makeup Artist
Snippet: Look like a celebrity with Ken Johnson's salon services. He is a Hollywood makeup artist and hair dresser who also specializes in lash extensions, facials and waxing services.
