A couple threads back someone posted about how they're quitting IM because they have NO money. That sucks, so here's an ULTRA-simple way to make money online TODAY.
When I quit my job and I was DEAD BROKE, this put food on the table until I could figure things out.
If you need money NOW, this is what you do:
1) Create a Fiverr.com account and whip up a quick 5-10 page report with some good information. This can be about ANYTHING from tarot cards to horoscopes, to SEO, to backlinks, to a list of other sites like Fiverr.com. You can use PLR, or just follow the old screenwriter's adage and "write what you know".
2) Go to Clickbank.com and find 2-3 products related to the niche that your report is about. At the end of your report, talk about where your customers can go for more information, and then pre-sell them on the awesomeness of these Clickbank products and INCLUDE your affiliate link. Cloak your link if possible.
3) Post a gig on Fiverr.com with a REALLY catchy headline - look at the other headlines in your niche and OUT-MARKET them. Offer MORE value than anyone else.
4) When someone orders one of your gigs, direct them to a download page where you have them enter their name and e-mail to get their report, or, if you don't want to do that, offer them a BONUS report in exchange for the opt-in. Either way, use Fiverr.com to BUILD YOUR LIST of people who are interested in that niche...then you can promote to them over and over again.
You should be able to start making sales from your gigs almost immediately, and you should also start getting commissions from your back-end Clickbank products.
Then re-post your gigs to other Fiverr clone sites like Zeerk.com, etc.
The greatest thing about this is that you're selling INFORMATION (which takes 10 seconds to e-mail to someone) rather than offering a SERVICE (which takes time). You don't have time to waste, so sell INFORMATION.
If you're broke, or if you need cash NOW, you can have this up-and-running by tomorrow morning. Hop to it!
