Very good advise, Alem.

Anyone looking for a "get rich quick" scheme will fall into that scary sub-industry of "internet marketing experts" who all seem to make their living by selling ebooks, clicks and survey opportunities to one another and no-one else. That's a very, very slow way to achieve financial independence.

You're right that if she had special knowledge in a particular area, she could no doubt identify a tight e-commerce niche that isn't being filled and establish an online store to target that area, while extending that out to eBay, Amazon Marketplaces, Froogle and other distribution channels to increase her exposure. Sending a few press releases through PRWeb, establishing partnerships and inbound link agreements with similarly-minded stores and writing columns for content sites that reach her target audience would help to get things rolling.
