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.

Positive reviews can help spread the word about a business, but does a service like Yelp really help businesses bring in more customers? For one entrepreneur, even the negative reviews can help.

Bolt Barbers actually displays those negative Yelp comments explicitly on their website. They put them in their window, and they’ve even published a book of some of the best buzz kill reviews.

“They’re certainly very informative for us,” according to Berman. “We learn a lot from them. They give great perspective, but they are also incredibly funny.

And believe it or not, Berman or Mohawk Matt as he’s known, says the campaign actually helps his business.

“Yelp is incredibly important,” says Berman. “We run offers on Yelp. We actually generate and run advertising that takes people, instead of to our home page, to our Yelp page.”
