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.

Consulting Pulse posted an article that I felt brought up a very good point. While today we can stay connected to more people in more ways and places than our parents ever could have, we still shouldn’t rely just on online tools to do business. You never know when your computer will crash, or the Internet is experiencing complications and you can not sign on. Below are some tools that come in handy even today when working offline.

  • Credit Card Machine. This comes in very handy in the home office our outside office when processing payments other than online.
  • While Twitter is great for business and you should build your Twitter followers, continue trying to build your followers offline. Those who benefit greatly from Twitter usually had a strong offline following to begin with.
  • Cold calls, visits to clients, follow up meetings, public courses and seminars, speaking at conferences and trade shows… you name it.
