That's a wide open question. If you told somebody, "I want to eat a meal. What should I eat?" they'd want to know things such as what kind of food you like, if you have any food allergies, how much money you have to spend, how hungry you are, whether you're a good cook yourself or if you'll need to go to a restaurant... that sort of thing.

Similarly, if you want to start a business (whether it's on the Internet or in the Real World is, essentially, irrelevant) we need a good bit more information before we can give you any reasonable suggestions:
  • What are your skills?
  • What experience do you have?
  • What are you interested in doing?
  • What sort of market research (if any) have you done so far? What were the results?
  • Where are you located? Where would your ideal customers be located?
  • What resources do you bring to the table? (time, money, skills, access to experts, specialized equipment or software, etc.)
  • Do you have any cash set aside to fund your new venture? If so, how much?
  • How quickly do you want to get started?
  • How much time can you set aside to get your business started?
  • What are your ultimate goals for the business?

Answer these questions, and we'll be able to give you some suggestions.
