I guess it would be ebooks or some softwares or anything which you can distribute electonically.
Such products have obvious synergy with internet (on websites).

In reality the best answer to this question is whatever generates the most in sales :p -obviously doesn't help you, but that is what every business is seeking to find

Products you have access to, of course.

For simple resale, you won't have much chance against the established big companies, unless you find a niche market...
For example, there's no way you cold compete with Amazon for selling books, unless you fall into one of 2 cases: 1) You have a large inventory of books that you need to convert into money, and you're willing to sell them for less than their full value, or 2) you find a niche of books to sell; specialize in sci-fi, or antique books, or romances, or whatever.

Basically, you have to have a reason for people to shop at your store and not other, larger ones. Will your stuff be cheaper? Will you have things that you can't find elsewhere? Will it be better quality stuff? It doesn't have to be all those things, but it needs to be at least one: cheaper, more variety/better selection, or better quality.

Perhaps you could partner up with an inventor who needs a way to market his/her new product?

I would say "e-books" that contain specialist information that people are really gung-ho about. Which of course would mean that you have to be either passionate about, or enough of a specialist to provide meaningful information. You could be a bodybuilder for example, and have very detailed information that you can put together, and then in order to sell the information also offer free gifts in the form of related information, such as "How to select gear for bodybuilding" etc. Also check through the "How to" Websites, and the very simple information it contains. Then if you can find something really specialist, and that is unique, you can market it on your Website. E-Books are really easy to sell, provided that you market them right, and they really contain information that the other person would want.

There are no best products to sell, everything sells, and the beauty of your own web sales portal is that your market is now the whole world or at least english speaking countries if that is the only language you know.

It is all about what interests you, say you like guitars, and you like playing music, or cars or hot rods, or swiming pools. or say you like e-books. You can go to www.clickbank.com and sign up to get access to affiliate links for thousands and thousands of companies offering products or services or software, ANYTHING.

Then what you do, like I said in the other post is write about it and publish your articles in as many places as possible, you can't really pitch your product but you can write about the general topic. and then you list your web page in the credits about the article. Plus you set up and pay for a little advertising on google and people that are interested and searching on your topic, will be driven by your ads to your website.

There is a lot more to it than that, but check this out, next time you are searching on google or yahoo, look in the upper right side of the page and check out all those numbers they will tell you how many people searched on key words related to certain topics and words. So that will tell you what is really good and what no one is searching on.

It's all about what you like, and are interested in, as to what you want to sell Very Happy

BigGeek, while it's true that all products sell, I don't think djpharis wants a product that sales once a year. Razz

Some of the things that people have mentioned are really great. Another thing that helps when you're looking for a niche to settle in is keyword research: figuring out how hot a topic is. A free service that works pretty good is http://freekeywords.wordtracker.com/.

BigGeek, I'm not sure what you're talking about when you say "all those numbers", but as far as I know (even after looking at the search just now) is that there is no where on google to figure out how many people are searching for a keyword without registering an adwords account (which costs $5). What the "results returned" number shows you is the amount of competition you have for the niche.
