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.

And if yours is a product business, most likely the fourth quarter of the year is absolutely crucial to your bottom line.

Below are a few ideas taken from Small Business Trends for obtaining free publicity for your products for this years holiday season.

We all know that timing is critical so make sure you send your pitches to these companies in at the right time. When sending in your pitches, pick out the most colorful and attention grabbing ones to send in that you have.

Include products for pets, people who are true pet lovers want to see promotions and products for their fury loved ones even at the holiday’s. If any of your products are associated with any celebrities, be sure to mention that in bold print. Some companies will only look at products if a known celebritity is a user of it.
