I built a web site, that people can reserve sport fields. I talked to sport facilities and told them that, they can sell their unreserved hours through this web site. Most of them accepted to join the web site.
Ofcourse, facilities must mirror their schedule on the site, through a management screen of their own. This task takes less than several minutes a day.
It has been 2 weeks since the web site is activated and started advertisement. Ofcourse there is not too much sales, since it is a new system. But there is a problem now. Although facilities easily accepted to join the system, most of them are reluctant to update their schedule regularly. It seems like, they expected positive results the next day, which is impossible.
This is similar to chicken and egg problem : It is only worth the task, when there are enough sales.
What can i do to solve this problem? How can i make them do their part for 3-6 months?
Note 1 : i can assure you that, this service is seriously required by customers(in my country ofcourse). It is only a matter of time. It needs 3-6 months to attract attention.
Note 2 : Sport facilities earn good money and this site is not urgent to their business. It is just : "why reject easy/more money?".
Note 3: I'm taking insignificant commission over sales through my site. No fixed money. So, no sales means no payment.
