Attempted to create my own startup, but it did not work as expected. I’ve tried to create a kind of Booking.com of car rentals for smaller and medium-sized companies to list their vehicles for rent.
Reasons of failure: 1. Companies do not want to sign up. (less than 10% signup rate) 2. Most of the rentals were made at the airports, which are now almost closed due to COVID19 pandemic. 3. It is too difficult to rank my website in the first pages of search engines, therefore even if the companies would sign up, nobody knows about my website to make reservations.
