Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

For some small businesses, radio can be the most powerful, cost-effective way to reach broad numbers of potential customers. Dave Young’s post today in the Branding Blog about avoiding hype in your radio ads offers some good tips to keep in mind when making one: “We all have a built-in hype detector. I’m not making this up. It’s built-in and hard-wired. (on this brain map it’s called Broca’s Area) It detects hype and protects us from it, or ignores it.”

He also links to a post at Mark Ramsey’s Radio Marketing Nexus. Lots of good posts there if you want to understand radio more.
