You don't have to waste hours creating content
We've done the hard part for you

Business coaches, consultants, service providers and educators....

Are you frustrated and stressed out by all the time you spend on content creation?

Even worse, maybe you're putting off developing your own products because...

There just isn't enough time in the day!

Here's the harsh reality:

You'll never be able to grow your business to the next level unless you're regularly creating your own courses and infoproducts.

The problem is that there's so much work involved to do it well. You have to:

  • Research the topic
  • Narrow down the key points
  • Outline a logical flow
  • Figure out learning activities that people can do
  • Write all the content
  • Develop support resources, like worksheets and checklists
  • Create the slideshow
  • Design graphics
  • Edit and proofread everything
  • Make it look professional
  • Create sales materials
  • Write autoresponder emails
  • etc, etc, etc

That can take months of time and thousands of dollars,

...especially when you have the rest of your business to run.

Luckily, with our ready-to-go, customizable content, you can set up your own automated sales funnels, signature products, and complete training programs.... in a matter of hours.

Instead of spending $5,000 or more, plus all the time to create the product and marketing materials, you can get everything you need for a FRACTION of that.

You don't have to do all that work yourself!

At Content Sparks, we've been designing and developing business training programs for Fortune 50 companies and small businesses.... for over 20 years.

So when you use one of our products, it's like having your own professional support team of researchers, instructional designers, writers, editors, graphics people, and marketing experts.

We always design our products to help your students take action on what they learn. They're not just taking it in and then walking off and forgetting everything.

Instead, you'll give them learning activities, worksheets, checklist reminders, graphics, and other resources - everything they need to start implementing what they learn right away.

What does that mean for you? It means...

You'll have happy customers who want to keep coming back to you to buy more!


Now you can:

  • Establish your reputation as a go-to authority

    Your new course will build your credibility and attract your ideal clients and customers

  • Free up big blocks of your time

    Don’t waste hours and days of your time that you really need for marketing or working with clients

  • Take the stress out of building your business

    Forget about trying to juggle content creation along with everything else when we’ve done the bulk of it for you

  • Help people build their businesses faster

    Give clients the resources they need to take a big leap forward in their marketing

  • Create passive streams of income

    Finally start building new sources of income that don’t rely on you being there

  • Spend more time on what you love

    Use your freed-up time to work on other parts of your business OR spend it on family, friends, and fun!

When you purchase one of our products, you get a license to:

  1. Edit it any way you want,
  2. Add your name and logo, and
  3. Start selling or sharing it with your clients and customers.

Just imagine this scenario:

  • You have a high-quality course in just minutes...
  • You quickly jump in and customize any of the material...
  • You launch the course for a fraction of the cost of starting from scratch...
  • You have everything you need to set up a sales funnel and promote the course...
  • Your course continues to sell, taking your business to that next level... without any extra work on your part!


There's no need to waste hours starting from scratch or staring at a blank page.

And our ready-to-go course on the Shoestring Budget Startup  is a HUGELY popular topic that people are searching for all the time. You can be the one to provide the answers.

You don't have to take my word for it, though. Here's what business owners like you have to say about Content Sparks:

I don't have to worry about the quality level with Content Sparks, I just have to tweak it to my voice. It’s the equivalent of hundreds or thousands of dollars of time saved. Plus, it makes me a valuable resource to my clients--I look like a superstar!

Peter Vogopoulos, Executive and Business Leadership Coach

...I appreciate all your content. It certainly makes me look like a rock star and when I teach it, the flow is perfect. I get a ton of response on the quality of instruction and ease of learning with your flow. Tami

Tamara Patzer, Local Marketing Director & Social Media Educator

It would have taken me at least 30 days, probably more, to do this on my own...[instead] it took about two weeks. So, according to my math, it saved me about $6,400 in time.

When I was first starting out online, I tried to do everything myself. I almost gave up because I was so tired and burned out all the time.

When I discovered that I could find content that was already written for me AND which I could then customize, it was such a relief! When I have a starting point to spark my imagination and kick my mind into gear, I can work much faster and get a lot more done.

That's why I started Content Sparks. So that you can get the same benefit of ready-to-go, customizable content to grow your business. But the quality has to be exceptional and professional - and that's where I apply all my experience from the corporate world.

When you purchase any of my content, you can feel confident that it's been carefully researched, organized, and written with the goal of getting maximum results for your clients and customers. Then all you have to do is tweak it for your market, adding your own insights, language, and branding. The bulk of the hard work is done for you!

Frequently Asked Questions And Answers

What does 'Customizable Content' mean? +

‘Customizable Content’ means content that is unbranded, can be edited and transformed to different media, but is also ready to deliver and sell to your clients.

What can I do with a customizable training program? +

Aside from learning from it yourself, you can use a customizable training program to teach others using different media, sell it for profit in different formats, use it for lead generation or use it to train your own team or outsourcers. A full list of our Content Rules can be found here.

How is Customizable Content different from PLR? +

There are a number of similarities between PLR and Customizable Content, but the products we sell at Content Sparks are often higher end and a lot more ‘finished’ and ready to use. Every customizable or licensed content creator uses different terms, so read the details carefully.

Do I have to re-write Customizable Content? +

You have the option to rewrite it if you so choose, but it is not necessary. It is recommended that web-based content is rewritten to an extent so that it will rank higher in search engines. Adding value to existing content is also important.

What do you mean by the word ‘Participants’? +

People who actively engage in the learning of the program are ‘participants’ in your course. They take responsibility for active learning, as opposed to sitting back and listening. The word ‘learners’ is sometimes used, but this generally suggests a more passive role in the course.

What do you mean by the word ‘Facilitator’? +

You are facilitating people’s learning when they are active participants. You cannot force them to learn or simply ‘teach’ them by drilling in a concept. However, you can facilitate their learning process by giving them the knowledge and the tools they need to be successful.

What’s the best way to deliver my new training program? +

This entirely depends on your audience and what you’re comfortable with.

The programs can be given synchronously, such as in a classroom, via a live webinar, via a teleseminar.

Or asynchronously, such as through a video or recorded webinar, with an eBook or through an email series.

How can I decide what’s best for my audience? +

This differs on an individual basis. Think about your audiences’ learning styles, where they’re located (i.e., do they need to travel if it’s a live event), the time zones they are in, and technology available to them for starters.

How do I set up my new training program? +

Check the facilitator’s guide for guidelines on how to set up the program.

Depending on the way you intend to deliver the program, for example if you are promoting it for sale, you may need a sales funnel. That could involve a giveaway (a gift of valuable information to reward your prospects for signing up to your leads list), your own website, whether an html or WordPress site (a place of your own to publish your content) or basic sales funnel pages.

1 Squeeze (Opt-in) page
2 Thank You page
3 Download page for your gift
4 Sales page for your course
5 Download or registration page for the course
6 An Autoresponder series – An email series people receive after getting the giveaway, to build relationships and promote your course’s sales page.
What tools do I need to deliver the training? +

Depending on the method in which you present the course, you will need a few different tools. For example, here are a few things you might need:

For Webinars
1 A Headset
2 Computer
3 Microsoft Office or equivalent
4 Webinar service, or Hangouts on Air (free)


For Classroom
1 Access to a venue
2 Computer
3 Projector for Powerpoint presentations, or equivalent
4 Usual classroom tools, (paper, name tents, markers, flipcharts, etc)


For Video
1 Screen capture software, or ability to record from slide software, (e.g. Powerpoint)
2 A place to host videos, (or YouTube)
3 Headset
4 Video editing software (ideally)


For eCourse
1 Autoresponder service
2 Microsoft Office or equivalent
3 PDF converter


For eBook
1 Microsoft Office or equivalent
2 PDF converter
3 Place to host your ebook for delivery


What skills do I need to deliver the training? +

You don’t need any specific skills to present the course, other than the ability and willingness to learn and pick up what you need as you go along. The best method is to start with a delivery method that you’re comfortable with and then venture out of your comfort zone to try new skills.

For example, you may want to start by packaging up everything as an ebook, but then move on to video creation, public speaking, writing a newsletter series or recording your own voice. Remember, you can always outsource the technical skills involved, such as setting up a website or video editing.

Don’t let the need for skills slow you down. Everyone started from scratch at some point.

How much will I have to spend beyond the cost of the program? +

You will need to make a few investments to be able to use your training program to its highest potential, such as:

Domain registration
Auto responder service
Microsoft Office or equivalent
Shopping Cart software (you can also use free options, such as PayPal, Clickbank or JVZoo)

Most other things are optional or have free alternatives, such as:

Microphone and/or headset (may be built into your computer)
Webinar service
Video editing software
Video Camera
Outsourcing for extra tasks

For example, you may want to start by packaging up everything as an ebook, but then move on to video creation, public speaking, writing a newsletter series or recording your own voice. Remember, you can always outsource the technical skills involved, such as setting up a website or video editing.

Don’t let the need for skills slow you down. Everyone started from scratch at some point.

Can I use my customizable training program in conjunction with other Customizable Content? +

Since your Customizable Content is completely editable, you can use it in conjunction with any other content you have written or have the rights to use

Can I get a refund for my Customizable Content if it doesn’t suit me? +

Most of our ‘Blaze’ level, customizable training programs come with a certain guarantee – usually 7 days – and you can request either a full or partial refund within this time if you are not happy with your purchase. Be sure to look through your materials right away. The reason we don’t typically provide longer periods for refunds is to protect the value of your content.

Why would I use Customizable Content as opposed to writing it myself? +

Our customizable products are designed by professional instructional designers, extensively researched, and then written by expert writers and developers. Plus, we’ve added all the components you need to teach and promote the programs.

By using our Ready-to-Go content, you save yourself a considerable amount of time. Instead of starting from scratch, you get something complete that you only need to brand and/or customize to your own style, audience, and market.

Can I request the creation of specific content topics? +

We love to hear from our customers! Let us know what topics you’re looking for, features and formats you’d like to see, or any other suggestions and feedback. If we receive enough interest in a topic or feature, we’ll definitely consider developing it.

Can all the trainers and coaches in my company teach this program? +

You can NOT share your customizable training program with other coaches, trainers or marketers. It is a single-trainer license. If you have other trainers or coaches who want to teach the content, they will need to purchase an additional license each.

Even better, sign up to be one of our affiliates and you can earn a commission when you recommend Content Sparks to your friends.

Is there any limit to how many people I can teach using this program? +

No. There is no “per seat” or “per user” license limit like some training programs. You may teach your content to as many people as you want, and we encourage you to. The more people who can benefit from your new content, the better!
