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.

When analyzing the marketing mix most entrepreneurs quickly learn there are two basic type of market research…..”primary” and “secondary”.

Primary research is the collection of original data employing numerous methods including surveys, interviews, questionnaires, etc. This method is generally too costly and time consuming for most small firms.

Secondary data is simple information that already exists. Nowadays, it is easily assessable and dirt cheap to buy.

Moreover, the primary outlet for this information is the federal and state governments

Using the most modern technology Uncle Sam has amassed very useful business information and data that any sized business can use for marketing purposes.

Check out the following websites and start collecting that marketing data:
