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 want to attract gaggles of gift-givers to your site, remember these three words: Offer free shipping.

Online holiday-gift shoppers overwhelmingly consider free shipping an important enticement in making purchases, with discounts and free return policies also key considerations, according to a survey released by Yahoo! Small Business and Harris Interactive.

Ninety percent of participants in the survey said free shipping would draw them to a site, followed by online discounts (69 percent), free or “no-hassle” return policies, (64 percent), free gift wrapping (27 percent) and finally gift certificates (24 percent).
