FairTrade – bad trait?

After having told so much about Green Business it is now time to present you the model of FairTrade, from official definitions and videos to apps and criticism.

FairTrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers. FairTrade offers producers a better deal and improved terms of trade. This allows them the opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future. FairTrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their everyday shopping.

Acquisitions

After having written about curious-, copying-, art- and franchising online business ideas as well as about how to find an online business idea, I finally come to an end by adding a post about online acquisitions. Acquisitions occur when one company buys another one and in fact, this happens a lot in case of online ventures. Google for example, since its foundation in 1998, has acquired the astonishing number of 98 companies and yet there is no end in sight.


But why is it worth doing and who profits? Will there be only one firm left in the future that rules the entire vastness of the internet? Continue reading

All about the money!? – Is moral lost in modern businesses?

This time, I had a really hard time figuring out what to write about. So what did I do? Yes, you are right: I googled it. I admit. Guilty me. But my results turned out to be really interesting.

At first, my search words were: “business, IT, topics to write about”. Maybe not really creative, but in return very effective. On the top of the first site with
searching results I found a blog about business ideas and strategies called Home Business Opportunities where a certain post had the title: “10 Top Hot Topics To Write About”. Guess what the “hottest” topic was… And the winner is: Making money. Surprise, surprise… Continue reading


Online Franchising

Good, old Franchising

After I have taken a look into the clash of Ebay’s PayPal and Google I would like to suggest a legal way of acquiring an already existing online business idea: Franchising! According to Wikipedia, Franchising is:

“…the practice of using another firm’s successful business model. For the franchisor, the franchise is an alternative to building ‘chain stores’ to distribute goods and avoid investment and liability over a chain.”

Everyone knows the first and most successful franchise model McDonalds (don’t like it), yet franchising has Continue reading
