The startup cost for setting up online business is very low and risk is also lower. In addition, the method to launch your online business is straight forward and easy.

Why Online Business For Seniors

You must be wondering, why setup your online business since you are already in senior old age? Isn’t you should enjoy your retirement life and spend quality time with your family at the old age?

The real truth is, in life it may not be so easy to live comfortably when you are at old age. With the ever changing and fast changing world, the younger generation will have a lot to catch up with their daily challenges. If we as seniors can help to lighten their burden, it will be very helpful to our children.

Look at the developed country like Japan, it has been reported that more record number of seniors are continuing to work, either in part-time or contract works. Why they need to work? Partly is also government seeing ageing become a big burden for the government to feed the old, therefore government want the seniors learn to care about themselves.

By continue to work, the seniors can help someway or another in their living expenses. Also when you grow old, the health care premium will go up and it become more costly.

Want to help your children and reduce their burden? Get some money to support your health care premium when you are getting old? I strongly encourage you to start your online business now by taking my #1 recommended online course to prepare for your future years.

Most of the seniors thought that they are able to find job with most of the countries’ government encourage employers to re-employ them again, but the truth is many employers prefer younger workers. When you are old, you become like a dinosaur to employer comparing with those 20-something colleagues. If you are lucky to find a job, mostly those jobs are not what you wish to do but people hate to do it. Therefore, I always encourage people who are 50 now or coming to 50 years old to start creating their online business. Getting your online business to grow take times, but once it become authority site among your niche you will be able to earn continue income for the niche market you choose.

  1. These are great tips for seniors that are interested in starting an online business. You’re right, that seniors have less time to recover from “failure”, but failures are also lessons and it’s never too late to learn.

    While I’m sure it can be intimidating for those who didn’t grow up with a lot of technology at their fingertips, luckily, there are tons of resources (like Wealthy Affiliate) that can make learning how to use computers and start an online business a lot easier than if someone was trying to learn this all on their own.

    • Hi Aria,

      Absolutely. I wish to help more senior citizen to earn income especially those in the age group of 50 years old and above. If they are still working for others, it will be better for them to create another income in case the company make them redundant. Or if they wish to establish own business, Online business is less risky and require smaller capital to start with. For those who are retired at home, create Online Business will allow them to earn additional retirement fund and enjoy more lifestyle benefits. 

      In Singapore, I see many retirees live without any further dream. This should not be the lifestyle a senior citizen live at the remaining life. We can continue to pursue our dream and also do something we are passionate about. It is time for seniors to live their life to the fullest.

    • Hi Andrea,

      Thank you for dropping by at my site. 

      I want to encourage seniors to continue working, even after their retirement. Building an online business is the best option for senior citizens and I have share some business ideas for seniors to consider.

      Online business is equivalent to home business for seniors and all retires can start doing it at home. Many seniors venture into businesses that cater to the elderly and achieve great success. It is a wonderful opportunity for seniors to continue making contribution to the society.

      For those who have a caring heart, you can consider to teach people, how to start a business helping the elderly to live comfortably. When you search on internet, you can find many senior care business ideas in 2017. This will provide you with a lot of business concepts, how you going to create yours in 2018 or beyond.


  6. I totally agree with you that seniors are considered as the fastest-growing demographic on every parts of the globe. And they continued working  and setting the goal of retirement much later in life. There are many factors to consider why they still continue to work; factors include rising health care cost, low pension or they just want to stay active. 

    Most, not all seniors might perhaps not be a online and computer savvy as compared to the younger generation, but I don’t think this will be the obstacles for them not to start their online business. Wealthy Affiliate will help them on their journey to become successful on their online business.

    • Hi Dale,

      A very warm welcome to you for giving your comment on my website. 

      I want to offer my support to those seniors in age, to extend their retirement fund by creating additional income. When we do not have income coming in each month, we tend to limit our lifestyle and restrict our activities within our home. This is not a healthy living lifestyle, based on my personal opinion. 

      When there is money continue to roll in, we can live our life much better and enjoy our life in peacefulness. We can travel and move about more freely, without worrying about our financial health. 

      Let’s help those seniors in need to create additional income to sustain our lifestyle. 

  8. Very well organized and informative article! I am personally trying affiliate marketing and can vouch for everything you said, it is a great platform. I think it is great how you geared this article towards those over 50, hopefully it’ll make the older generation more comfortable with trying something lime this! What is your favourite part of WA personally?

    • Hi Kohl,

      Thank you for the comment.

      As we grow old, the expenses on healthcare will go up and with inflation increases year after year, our retirement fund may not sustainable for long term. Therefore, it is important for seniors to continue finding alternative income.

      One way I found is the internet home-based business which senior citizen can do at home. 

      The platform I suggested in this article will guide all those who are interested to follow all the online lessons, step-by-step and learn through action. This is the favorite part at Wealthy Affiliate which I use to pick up my online skill set.
