It all started with the fact that I was a way to collect ALL available ads on the Internet on the website and in the Telegram bot, which sends options suitable for your request as soon as they appear on the Internet. At first, we loaded all ads manually. They just sat for days and nights and looked at the pictures, contacted the landlords and entered them into the database. Now everything is set to 90% automatically, so if a year ago we added a maximum of 30-40 options per day, now their number has increased to 300-350.
The most important thing in business is the circle of contacts! When I got excited about the idea of the project, the guys who were involved in marketing, sales and organization of the process were attracted to me. The very idea inspired them, because they, like myself, went through the throes of choosing a rental property in Bali. Where, if not in Bali, the island of freelancers and remote workers, to look for a team among friends? For example, our management team and investors all met on the island!
The team did not grow linearly, I would even say in waves. There were times when there were two of us, and there were times when there were 15 of us. Now the team has 7 people working on the project 24/7, and about ten more are involved in various tasks as needed.
Our key task now is to become the number 1 real estate service in Bali. Here you can rent housing both daily, and monthly, and annual, and you can even buy it. We have affordable housing, and even cheap, but there are also premium options. Our landmark is AirBnb in the Bali market.
We want people who are thinking about how to rent an apartment in Bali to put Booking, Airbnb and Baliving ru on the same level.
Our next point is to enter the market of Thailand and Turkey with a similar offer and justify on it.
If someone asks me what is the secret of the success of the project, I will say that this is a technological solution that solves the basic problem of expats. Not just the basic one - the first one, the one that everyone has! We provide a convenient and fast solution!
