Your store could serve as a space for others to make sales, you could even organize virtual bazaars from time to time. Of course, you would charge commissions for this.
On the other hand, online education is also very trendy. Offering courses, consultancies and digital products in different formats, whether in text, audio or video is another option.
Likewise, it is interesting how older adults have lost their fear of using digital tools. However, many of them still need help with shopping or paperwork.
