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.

Car Repair

How do you start a car repair business for $15? One Pakistani entrepreneur figured out how:

The business model of SK Motor Syndicate (SKMS) is simple. Be it car maintenance, repair work, inspection, trading, interior fabrication, exterior add-ons or CNG installation, SKMS claims to be a one-stop shop that acts as a value-adding intermediary between the customer and about 18 authorised service-providers in different parts of Karachi.

But why would someone involve an intermediary and not deal with the car mechanic himself?

“We provide pick-and-drop service along with a seven-day workmanship warranty. We charge customers strictly the going market rates, absorb all risks and get the repair work done from a select group of service-providers at discount rates,” Khan said while talking to The Express Tribune.
