Even if the op isn't serious, i will be;

Best way to make ISK in EVE is to pick a profession that doesn't numb you to the bone, that you like and advance in it. Bigger, better, harder, scooter...err...profit i mean.

Just "keep on truckin'" and you'll start making big ISK.

In the history of Eve this has never worked. Doesn't stop imbeciles posted all over the forums with that request, though.

Edit; ibt obligatory "no begging on the forums" comment/lock.

psst... that phrase has a history that far precedes Eve...


To answer the OP, like someone already said, it depends on what you enjoy. If that doesn't matter, then sitting in Jita doing daytrading probably has the most profit potential time-wise. But for most empire dwellers, mining and industry or running missions seems to be the most common income source. In 0.0 space, ratting and plexing are more common.

For a newer player with low SP, I recommend training salavgers and running missions, or even ratting and salvaging in asteroid belts. Or better, yet find some generous mission runner that will let you salvage their wrecks. You might not get very much salvage from the 4 or 5 frigates in a level 1 mission, but it adds up and can easily be worth far more than any other loot or mission rewards when sold on the market.

sit in a pod at a high traffic gate and salvage the wrecks that couldn't resist.
