    Mother's day.

    My mom have been working at the same company for 30 over years ,so she wanted to switch job, like start an online business.

    I hope to achieve her dream. I have technical skills such as creating websites. I need some ideas on what she can sell or what kinds of online business she can do.

    Get her one of those business/life/career books that asks her questions about her personality, passions, and aptitudes. Or ask her for ideas. We don't know anything about your mom.

    The same ways everyone makes money. CPA PPD AdSense drop ship... How technically advanced is she? Could she handle drop shipping and selling g to local businesses and friends? Or will you be doing it? If she just can write articles do that and do reviews on CPA trials of things a mom would want or click bank books. Like weight loss pills to keep up with the kids and get the husband back into the sack. Other moms will trust her reviews if you have a good back story page. I'd recommend a video bio. It will seem more personal. Just my 2 cents!

    Dropshipping sounds good to everyone I guess?

    I think dropshipping is opportunity. Open eBay store and go hard with work!

    Not everyone, just a newbie and a homeless guy.

    Dropshipping is not a piece of cake, it's not easy, and it takes time. Finding suppliers that are reliable is a bitch.

    Besides, is you mother interested in dropshipping? Do you know enough to teach her, or are you just going to build a dropshipping empire, hand it to her and say "here you go"?

    Have you sat down with your other and asked what interests her? Is there a hobby or a passion she has that she would like to delve into?

    Does she like doing graphics? Does she have a good eye for fashion? Does she garden? Does she like to hunt kangaroos from a hot air balloon with crossbows?

    You think I am being facetious, but I am not. If you Mother is an analytical person, maybe a PPC empire will work for her, but if she is creative, it will drive her nuts.

    If she likes hunting from hang gliders with crossbows, making a hunting from hot air balloons site with machine guns is a waste of time.

    Find out from her the things that she is interested in. Then find a way to incorporate that into the online world. Otherwise you are just going to give her a job she hates but can't abandon because her loving son/daughter gave it to her and she doesn't want to disappoint you.

    You want to give her a gift, not a burden.

    Dude, how are we supposed to help you find something for YOUR mom without even knowing the slightest bit about what she likes?

    Seriously... sometimes I ask myself why people make such threads without giving out ANY information and then expect help.

    Well... I'm still gonna try. Lets assume she likes to cook/bake stuff.

    Make a recipe site, create social profiles for it (pinterest(!), tumblr, fb, g+, twitter..). Now, let her make 3 recipes per week and then videotape her cooking/baking. Cut it together to make a neat, fast and helpful video guide for the recipe, post important information and the video on your site and post it on the social media profiles.

    Buy ninja pinner and try to get followers on pinterest. Once you have 10-20 recipes, make an ebook and offer it as a freebie for email opt-in. Search for good recipe books, buy the ones that look the best. Now use one of those recipes and do the same as you did with the others (video guide, post on the site, etc.) and promote it with that as a "review". Make it as honest as possible.

    Yeah I know, kinda cliché :D but hey... best I can do with such little information.

    If you have any question about that, send me a PM. ;-)

    warm regards,

    Note: I don't recommend to start with dropshipping. If you don't have really good research skills, the likelihood of you getting in the wrong niche and waste A LOT of time and money is pretty high. Making an ecommerce site is extremely time-intensive and if you don't know what you're doing it will probably lead nowhere. I suggest start with affiliate offers combined with high quality niche relevant content, promoted through social media. Once there are some profits, you can go into SEO and PPC. From there on, you are free to expand to ecommerce in the niche. ;-)

    Is she looking for a change of direction or are you the one suggesting it to her? She will have to research and identify potential green niches that she could get into which would go hand in hand with her previous experience levels.
