Cloud of dust from falling object

So I have a simple animation with some text falling and landing on the ground. I would like to make a little cloud of dust come up when it lands. How would I do this? I don't need anything fancy or super realistic.

Thanks!

Particles. Lots and lots of small particles. Try CC Particle World.

See tutorials on it here http://library.creativecow.net/tutorials/adobeaftereffects/particle

Particle Illusion could provide some really cool smoke/dust

Someone asked the same question a while back and I briefly explained how I achieved the effect for our Texture Pack promo video:

The video can be seen here (the dust is at the very beginning of the video):
