If I go to like google trends or another site (recommendations welcome) that tells me what people are searching for...write an article about that topic and post it on a site like associated content or even a blog I make and put an affiliate product that pays instant commisions...will this bring me in some money? Anyone ever tried this?

Please let me know because I seem to keep running into these binds where I need some emergency cash. I'm tired of writing $5.00 articles! lol. Please tell me what you guys think.

    Lol, in theory that will work. But things always take longer to get working then you think they will.

    That'll work allrite, but don't just put promote affiliate products, go CPA for certain trends such as iphones, ipad, etc...you get the picture.

    There are many CPA offers out there that pay commissions for a simple email submission for a chance to win a gadget.

      Kea55, a while back I bought a really good WSO on making money with Google Trends, from Steve Wagenheim, one of the better-known Warriors here on the Forum. I don't know if he's still offering it, but you might PM him and see.

      I actually made a bit with it, but you do have to wait a while sometimes to find and jump on a good Trend...so much of it is pop culture baloney.

    If you're expecting instant income from adsense and article writing, it isn't going to happen. Adsense income tends to trickle in slowly, but consistently.

      It might work to bring a bit of money, but it is a lot of work to keep up with the Trends on a daily basis.

      It is also hard to figure out sometimes what you can monetize your site with. If you get a good story with some cool item or CPA offer that goes along well with it, you could make quite a bit. but the next day you have to start with a new story.

      I realize some stories might stay hot longer than a day, but some only last a couple of hours.

    It will...

      Don't think anyone suggested it was... it's clear you're stressed since you're in a bind, no worries, we're all here to try to help each other.

      If you really are desperate, it depends on your time window. If you need money today, writing stuff and submitting it to ezine articles or something won't help because it can take days for the article to get approved, then you maybe get some clicks and sales, but you've got to wait 30 or 60 days to get paid.

      The thread Istvan Horvath listed above is good for your reading pleasure.

      If you are on a shorter time frame, consider selling stuff or doing an odd job for someone that pays right then.

      For a little longer term, I get it that you're tired of busting your a** for $5 per article. Can you increase your rates?

      If your work is worth more than that you should be able to ask it. You may not be able to ask 5k per page, but you should be able to get more than 5 bucks if your writing is good.

      Perhaps if you want to stick with writing you could consider ghostwriting ebooks for people?

      You could also consider running a special offer for bundles of articles and crank them out. If you get paid by paypal, it still takes a couple days to get it into your bank account unless you have a paypal debit card, but it might fit your situation.

      Hope it helps!

    Exactly how desperate are you for money? Is it for a crucial expense like rent, food or something else that is really important such as debt/insurance payments?

    If you are, I'd suggest sticking with your article writing for now, but try writing for Associated Content and setting up blogs in the meantime (to generate more diversified streams of income). Do not expect these activities to bring you any sort of instant cash though, so I'd recommend that you keep writing articles so that you can raise emergency cash for your immediate needs.

    There are a lot of ways to bring in fast cash. Some you may not like. The best way that I can think of is to go to freelancer.com and post some service that would pay you about 20 bucks and up. Then go to fiverr.com and find someone who can do the same work. It will only cost you 5 bucks, then when they are done, pass the work onto the person who hired you at freelancer.com and then you just profited 15 bucks and it took very little work. The trick is to advertise your service in many internet forums (no spamming) Or you can goto odesk.com and try to find work there too. I hope this helps.

      It takes hard work to get fast cash online.

      As mention by other members here, the best alternative is the offline one.

      Where you live. Friends, neighbors, family members, church, community groups, government.

      Reduce expenses, too.

      Depending on what are your needs there are several alternatives:

      Clothes: there are many families that have them and some even new and unused and not to be used. Ask.

      You have to set aside pride.

      Food: have good manners and you will be invited to many homes, parties, weddings, picnics, trips, gatherings, meetings where food is part if the activity. I know people that do this. They even entertain the audience.

      If your are desperate, just don't make decisions that could harm other people or yourself. When a person is desperate he/she sometimes makes decisions that later brings remorse.

      Help is available.

      Sincerely,

      Antonios

    Why would Google Trends work better than choosing a topic someone needs a desperate answer for?

    Getting Rid of Fleas
    Stopping Hemorrhoid Pain
    Getting Your Ex-Back
    My ***** Fell Off How Do I Put It Back On... (Joking)

    A desperate buyer is going to purchase faster and more consistently than a curious browser.

    I'd suggest splitting your day. Spend half your time producing content for other people at the highest rate you can charge. The other half spend building your own business. At least you will have some income consistently coming in, which takes off some of the heat.

      This works best if you have a reseller hosting account.

      1. Pick up your local yellow pages and look through it. Your looking for a local mom/pop or slightly larger company that does NOT have a decent internet presense on the net.

      2. Take a local niche like a flower shop, for example. Build a blog around a "flower shop" niche using your unique written content. About 10 articles will do for starters.

      3. Send a post card (some will still have e-mail...you'll just have to call them for their addy) to ALL the flower shops listed in the yellow pages. (hint: people that just bought an assumed name for a biz are prime leads for this).

      The post card would announce the website and that there is only one availible for that niche. First come...First served. Give them the url to the site and a phone number to reach you. You can also follow up with them (since thier number is in the yellow pages) and introduce yourself and inform them of your mailing and give them the url to the over the phone.

      Remember to leave room for backend sales. Like content writing in your case. Writing for offliners pays much better than for the onliners. Also...you can hire yourself out to the buyers for backlinking and off page seo.

      Just a thought

    First off, putting yourself in a desperate situation is never a good thing. You probably know the best way to get rich quick is to not get rich quick.

    Make sure the product you are promoting is being searched for and that people actually want to buy it.

    As far as articles, Ezinearticles is my primary choice because of their creds and rank power. Try building up slowly for these emergencies so you're not scrambling to get cash in hand.

    Buddy, when you're desperate, it's better to stick to what works rather than trying to create your own trails because of pressure, narrow-mindedness due to pressure, and so on.

    Go here What to do if you're desperate and if a plan seems like it'll work, DO IT. You're racing against time so DO IT NOW.
