BusinessOpportunity.com has one of the best selections of franchises and biz ops available for aspiring entrepreneurs. But there’s much more to the site than the listings. Our goal over the years is to put together a website that makes it easy to find just the right opportunity or franchise for your work-for-yourself dreams. We have one of the biggest libraries of resources and posts available to help you choose and run your business.
Here is a tour of our site to help you make the most of all the valuable information on tap for people just like you, whether you are just dipping your toe in entrepreneurial waters or are ready to take the plunge.
Those Big Orange Bars
The first orange bar at the top of each page gives you quick navigation to the home page, a contact form, the blog and a tab if you want to advertise. It also has a newsletter signup form. Here is a closer look at each of these links:
Home: this takes you to the summary page, the one that reflects the most recent updates, featured opportunities and links to other parts of the site. It is always the best place to start your visit.
Advertise: If you have a business opportunity or franchise that you want listed on the site, click the word Advertise. This will take you to a contact form and a link to the latest Rate Card.
Contact: Do you have a question, suggestion or want to get in touch with the people in charge here at BusinessOpportunity.com? Click Contact, which takes you to a contact form. When you fill it out and submit it, it will go directly to the powers-that-be. We welcome your input and enjoy hearing from you.
Before you can actually send your message, you must fill out the Captcha form, which is simply a method used by most websites to filter out spammers and robots. It proves that the message was sent by a real human. It is easy to use. Just type the text or number that you see in the graphic or photo into the box.
Blog: When you click Blog, you will go to huge selection of articles that have made BusinessOpportunity.com a respected, reliable resource for entrepreneurs.
Advertiser Login: If you advertise on the site, you will be given an account. This button takes you to the login screen.

Don’t worry, we never sell or otherwise use your email address for anything other than sending out the newsletter. We value your privacy.
The Essential Search Bar
About a quarter of the way down from the top, you’ll see another big orange band that appears on all the pages, not just the home page. Use this to narrow your search for the type of business you want to buy.
You can specify your budget and location. That way, you don’t have to sort through the entire list of businesses on the site to find what is appropriate for you.
