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.

Virtual Shopping With Your Phone

In South Korea, a supermarket chain is experimenting with a new system that let’s commuters shop from subway stations with the cellphones.

The biggest problem with ordering groceries for delivery has always been that looking at a selection of food online is very different from browsing the aisles at your local megamart. Homeplus, a South Korean grocery chain, has placed wall length billboards with photorealistic images of supermarket shelves on the wall of subway stations. Although virutal the displays were exactly the same as actual stores, from the display to the merchandise.

Shoppers use their cellphones scan the QR code of each product they want, and the products will be delivered to their doors.
