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.


If you’re thinking about offering your customers free shipping and handling, think very carefully before making your final decision. Offering free shipping can be a good idea for certain businesses, but it really depends on the kind of products you’re selling and how much you’re charging for them.

Typically, the best way to deal with shipping and handling fees is to charge just enough to break even on your costs. If you overcharge your customers, you’ll scare them away. But if you charge too little, you’ll end up running your business right into the ground.
