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.

Entrepreneur Daily:

Like her or not, media queen Oprah has turned unknown businesses into overnight success stories thanks to her stamp of approval.

So how does she decide which of the hundreds of thousands of product pitches she receives get air time?

According to an Advertising Age article, “It helps a whole lot if Oprah likes your brand or its ads. It helps more still if Oprah’s producers like you. And it possibly helps even more if Oprah likes you or the person endorsing your brand.

Oh, and another, murkier point: Some PR people believe it may help to ‘do a sponsorship,’ as one put it.”
