Lately I have been in the situation where I have needed money fast, ( to pay bills ) and the time frame has been short. However its a dilemma in itself because normally if you want to make money in a real hurry I have found that I have had to do the likes of sponsored reviews, or sell links. This is all good and you can get quick results however you also need to focus on the long term stuff which means creating worthwhile and valuable content that is going to create passive income, and unfortunately spamming your sites with paid posts and links is not really the best way to go about it.
My answer to this has and always will be multiple sites, I have sites which have never seen a sponsored post anywhere near them, I also have sites which I pretty much use solely for sponsored posts. ( not this one if you were wondering, this blog is a mixed bag where I try to create content, but do a bit of advertising as well )
How much money can you make in a short time frame?
I went to one of my paid post sites tonight and wrote 5 quick short posts that took me around 30 minutes and I was paid $US 25-00 for my efforts. Thats not great money, but it was quick and effortless really and filled a need ( money for the bank account ).
Balancing it out
The important thing is if you do something like this try to make sure you also spend time creating content or improving traffic to your key sites, so that you are not only fulfilling your immediate requirements but also working on creating a longer term and reliable passive source of income, that is really the golden egg, that I think most of us are seeking. So don't ruin your sites for short term gain if you can help and are looking to really make decent money fast online.
Good luck with your quest to make money fast online!

As you have probably noticed I have not been dedicating much time to actively making money online lately, however it has been an experiment in itself to see which avenues that had been set up on my sites continue to tick away earning money for me while I have been doing very little actively on the sites.
On a personal note I want to thank all the readers that have stuck with this site over the last few months, even though there has not been a lot going on... Sometimes life is a funny thing and although most of the time things continue in some sort of consistent pattern, events do transpire that change the course of your life forever. Often its just a matter of rolling with the punches, taking one day at a time and working through things until you recover some sort of normality in your life.
Anyway below are the top passive earners that have kept ticking away for me over the last little while, number 2 and number 3 are affiliate links so if you sign up via my link and make some money, its possible that I will see a small return for sending you there.
1./ Google Adsense - has always been the top passive income earner for me, basically install the code on your site, drive traffic to your site and you will make money. There are probably methods that could be better used to monetize this space, but for ease of use most people I am sure would agree that Google Adsense is right up there.
2./ Linkworth - It has really taken me a while to begin earning consistant income with these guys but for the last few months thanks to slowly but surely building up a few advertisers that are happy to purchase advertising on my sites they are now earning a reliable residual income. Sometimes even if things don't always go your way you really need to be persistent to achieve that goal of making passive income online.
3./ Bucks4Banners - These guys just keep paying me for a few banner adverts that I have. Easy to set up and they just keep paying month after month. Often its a bit hard to figure out what sites they will accept however from what I have found they are not that keen on "make money online" sites and prefer more natural kind of sites.
I would be very interested in hearing which are the top 3 - 5 passive earners on other peoples sites, so please share, however only please if you are actually making money from these programs.
