If ISK is your primary concern, then take a look at how much you earn doing something with your main.

If your alt doing the same thing cannot earn more than PLEX price each month you shouldn't get an alt.

If you cannot earn 360 - 380 mil (plex is about that amount now) then you are better off buying a single plex every month. :)
Simply from a cost effective point of view.

If, on the other hand, you do not care about ISK and have a clear view as to what you want your alt to do without being connected to making money (scout? fleet booster? hauler?), then disregard the above and go for it.

A few options I can come up with,

Main -> Orca / Alt -> Mackinaw or Hulk ( (Ice)mining boost)
Main -> Mission ship/ Alt-> Noctis (salvage and loot while finishing mission)
Main -> PvP / Alt -> Scout
Main -> PvP / Alt -> Bait
Main -> BPO research, / Alt -> BPO research
Main -> PI / Alt -> PI
Main -> located at a trade hub/ Alt -> Jita (trade) alt
Main -> PvP oriented / Alt -> research oriented

Most money? Probably trading but you need a lot of starting capital and 'the fingers' for it.

if your running missions, just use alt to help with the missions, share the rewards and you will have 2 toons pulling lvl 4 missions from the same agents, the nice thing about that is you will have twice the missions to cherry pick from.
