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.

When you think of chess, The need for strategy is apparent. The same can be said about running an Internet business. That is something Drew Sharma knows a lot about.

Sharma got hooked on building web-based businesses when he sold multiple businesses, including InkCartridges.com in 2009 to a large e-commerce company, beginning a winning streak of numerous other acquisitions. “This validated the model of building businesses by acquiring and developing strategic domain names, then gaining traction and reach with search engine optimization and other means,” said Sharma, whose latest venture is Cookies.com.

Sharma says the biggest challenge to developing an e-commerce site is “the waiting game.” “Even before you have revenue, you need to build and grow your website. You can go a year and a half just shoving coal into the fire without getting anything in return,” said Sharma, who said often the tipping point comes about 18 months, when the fruits of labor finally start paying off.
