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.

Startup Journal:

Looking for a flexible part-time job with decent pay? You could become a “mystery shopper” — a free-lancer who makes undercover visits to retailers and restaurants to evaluate customer service.

Restaurants, department stores, movie theaters, gas stations and hotels all want mystery shoppers to provide feedback on areas of their businesses that need improvement. Did the sales clerk smile? Were you greeted at the door? Was the floor clean?

Demand has become so great for mystery shoppers that more than 100 U.S. mystery-shop firms now recruit shoppers to fill local assignments for clients. These firms select shoppers, assign jobs and pay their workers. Mystery shoppers work as “independent contractors,” and can accept or reject assignments on a case-by-case basis. So if you’re extra-busy one week or month, you can turn down offers for assignments.
