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.


As consumers slash their budgets and newspaper subscriptions continue to slide, more people are turning to the Internet for coupons.

That’s good news for entrepreneurs leading the charge to move coupons online.

According to a recent survey of 4,500 women by Burlington, Massachusetts-based online ad network Burst Media, coupon usage is up, and more consumers are turning to the Internet as their source.

Thirty-four percent of respondents report using more coupons, while the rate of online users has jumped since 2002, from 3.8 to 16 percent.

“The Internet has become the second most important place for women to get coupons, and when you consider that newspapers have had 60, 70, 80 years of marketing efforts, it’s that much more powerful a message for marketing,” said Chuck Moran, Burst Media’s VP of marketing.
