Swallowing The WorldWideWeb

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

Is blue the new green? Part I

Our planet is called the blue planet because its surface is covered with water by 70 %. The human body consists by 72 % of water. Without water we can’t live. Water is used for energy, food and transport so whoever controls water controls the world.  Nature however is the true master and very now and then we are reminded by her power when a little snow stops our technological society from functioning or a Tsunami devastates a whole country. Reason enough to look at water consumption in the context of eco friendliness, both, on private and professional level. 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

His office is located inSanta Monica, the sun shines 10 hours a day. He smiles: His company made a profit of 200 Million Dollar last year. Continue reading
