Here's Exactly What You'll Get in 'Start Your Own Business: Step-by-Step'...

With Start Your Own Business: Step-by-Step, you’ll get everything you need to DELIVER, TEACH, and ATTRACT students to your own program, where you'll teach them how to make their dream of starting their own business a reality.  

Here's how...

Many people talk about starting a business, but few make it past the dreaming stage.  

And even fewer get their business launched and earning enough to reach their financial goals.  

What is it that holds back these aspiring entrepreneurs’ success?  

Often, it’s because...  

  • Their mindset is stuck on failure and self-doubt 
  • They worry that their business won’t earn enough 
  • They don’t know what’s involved in getting their business set up 
  • They’re not sure exactly what to sell that people will buy
  • They aren’t clear on how they’ll get people to buy  


And sometimes it’s just because they can’t get themselves organized and focused on their goal long enough to reach it. You can help your audience build the business they deserve.  

With our course on how to Start Your Own Business: Step-by-Step, you'll walk your students through the critical steps for getting a new business off the ground. You'll show them how to pick the business model that makes sense for them, how to determine what to sell, the value of creating a ‘minimum viable product, the essential details that every startup has to pay attention to, the keys to a successful launch, and more.  

Even better, when you purchase a license to Start Your Own Business: Step-by-Step, you’ll get the rights to edit the content any way you want, put your name and brand on, and repurpose it into whatever format you want. 

Then use your new course to...

  • Attract a flood of leads for your other products and services 
  • Build your reputation as an expert with webinars, workshops, videos, and more
  • Provide resources for your clients to help them get results (and win their lasting devotion) 
  • Sell the course for 100% profit.... and a nice new income stream for you

You’ll be helping your clients and customers finally launch the business they’ve only dreamed about in the past,  

….and watch your own business take off to new heights at the same time!  

Here's what you'll teach in Start Your Own Business: Step-by-Step...

Start Your Own Business: Step-by-Step is designed to be delivered in whatever format makes the most sense for YOUR audience. For example, you can deliver it as any or all of the following:

  • 2-day in-person, hands-on workshop (or VIP retreat)
  • Online course with both text and a series of 20 or more bite-sized videos
  • Webinar series with 4 or more live, interactive sessions (plus handouts)
  • Self-study eBook with Action Guide (add a coaching upsell to increase value)
  • Dripped email course with attached worksheets (add links to your other programs!)

How you use the content is entirely up to you and what you need for your audience and your business. But no matter how you decide to teach the course, here's what you'll cover:

Introduction

You'll kickstart the course by giving a quick overview and explaining what people will be able to do by the time they're done, so that they're excited to jump in and start learning.

Module 1: Develop a Mindset for Success

In the first module, you'll explore the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs and help your students recognize that they have the power to change their mindset. Then they’ll identify their big “why” for their business, so that they always have a motivating reason to deal with the challenges of getting a new business off the ground.  

Module 2: Define Your Driving Vision and Values  

While knowing why you want to start a business is an important first step, so is having a vision of your life once that business is a reality. In Module 2, you’ll show your students how to identify the vision and values that will guide them on their business-building journey, so that they always stay true to themselves.  

Module 3: Pick the Right Business for You

Most of your students will already have a vague idea of the business they want to start, but it’s important to make sure it matches up with their strengths and talents. In Module 3, you’ll show them how to ensure this match is there, so they’ll have the best chances of success. Then you’ll help them set revenue goals, so that they have a way to check their progress as their business gets going.  

Module 4: Identify Your Target Customer and Your Niche

There’s no point investing time in building a business if it has no chance of being profitable. In Module 4, you’ll walk your students through the steps for researching their market to see if it can be profitable, getting totally clear on their ideal customer, and determining if they need to niche down further to compete effectively. 

Module 5: Decide What to Offer and How 

Once your students understand their target customer, they can make decisions about what to offer that’s also in line with their big “why” and their values and strengths. In Module 5, you’ll explore different business models and how to choose the right one. Then you’ll show your students how to define the unique value they’ll offer and how to design a minimum viable product to test with their market, so they can get feedback before investing too much in one direction.  

Module 6: Set Up the Essentials for Running your Business  

Starting a viable, sustainable business involves a lot more than creating a product and putting it up for sale. There are all sorts of legal, administrative, and financial requirements. In Module 6, you’ll walk through the most common ones that your students have to set up, providing them with a checklist of items to address. They will then need to research any requirements that are specific to their country.  

Module 7: Start Branding Your Business Now

Even though your students are starting with a minimum viable product, it’s important to think about their branding from the start. In Module 7, you’ll discuss the elements of an effective brand and how it ties in with their Unique Value Proposition. Then you’ll walk them through how to start branding their first offer, so that it has a clear identity that people will remember.  

Module 8: Pick the Right Price  

Pricing is always a touchy subject for any business owner since it’s such a big decision that affects revenue. In Module 8, you’ll explore the concept of value vs. price and explain different pricing strategy options. You’ll then give your students the questions they need to ask themselves to pick their strategy and price their MVP. 

Module 9: Set Up Your Marketing  

A new business doesn’t need a grand marketing plan to get off the ground, but it pays to have a few strategies in place. In Module 9, you’ll show your students how they can get started with a few good, low cost marketing tactics that are proven effective. You’ll give them a simple 10-point plan to fill in and tell them how to decide which tactics to choose, so they can have something to guide them without being overwhelmed. 

Module 10: Your Launch Starts Here 

Business launches are exciting, but stressful. In Module 10, you’ll explain to your students the importance of carefully planning their launch and how it involves 3 phases - pre-launch, launch, and post-launch. You’ll give them ideas and tips for success in each phase and then have them put together their own launch plan for their first offer. 

Module 11: Track Your Progress

Successful businesses monitor a few key metrics to make sure they’re on track to achieve their goals. In Module 11, you’ll explain the 7 key metrics that your students should be looking at in their business, so they can use that data to improve and grow in the future. 

Module 12: Moving Forward

In this last module, you’ll give your students sound advice on how to make sure they maintain a balance in their life as they immerse themselves in their business. You’ll discuss ways to plan their time, be more productive, and set ongoing goals. They’ll finish up by creating their Action Plan, so they know exactly what they need to do next to make their business dream a permanent reality.  

And to teach the program above, here’s exactly what you’ll get in Start Your Own Business: Step-by-Step:

Take a Sneak Peek Inside the Course 

Watch as I open up the course folders and show you EXACTLY what content you'll get and how it works...

Want to see a sample?

So What Does All of This Cost?

You can see that Content Sparks programs pack in a lot of value.  

That’s because as learning experts and marketing specialists, we develop top-notch material AND we want to help you use it to attract clients and customers, so that everyone’s business grows.  

But don’t worry, the cost is going to be MUCH less than you think.  

Much less than it should be, based on the value of this program...  

Much less than courses that teach you how to create a program like this yourself...  

(Plus, this is ready to launch in minutes, not months, and even includes lead generation material to attract students to the course.)  

Much less than hiring a team to help you design your program and create content...  

And MUCH, MUCH less than learning how to create a program like this by trial and error...  

...where you can lose money AND get zero sales. 

So let’s say, conservatively, that you can create this course yourself for $8,000.  

Now, that’s not nearly enough money to hire someone to help you...that’s just accounting for your personal time.  

(If you’re a highly paid consultant, however, that $8,000 estimate is going to be MUCH higher...)  

So you’d still 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 lead generation materials, write autoresponder emails, and more. 

For example, here's the approximate amount of time it takes us to create a course like this one... 

But if you don't have experience creating courses, it's going to take HUNDREDS of hours to do that properly...  

And probably additional hundreds or thousands of dollars just to learn how to build a quality course or a high-converting sales funnel...  

And after all of that, you don’t know if anyone is going to buy...  

Especially if you’ve never sold your own program before.  

OR, you can easily and quickly create your own courses...  

Using ready-to-go programs from a company with a long track record of success...  

And expand your business...  

Earn more money, work fewer hours, and become the authority in your market.  

All for significantly less than trying to do the same thing on your own.  

So, as part of this offer...  

You won't pay $8,000...  

You won't pay $3,000...  

You won't even pay $1,500...

But Will Done-For-You Programs from Content Sparks REALLY Boost My Revenue?

To answer that, first I have to tell you a bit about why Content Sparks was created... 

Hi, I’m Sharyn Sheldon, founder of Content Sparks.  

Soon after starting my very first small business, I found myself stuck...  

I knew that creating sales and marketing products for my customers would take my business to the next level, however, there were a few big problems. 

Maybe they sound familiar?

  • I was so busy doing work for customers that I never seemed to have enough time to work on my own business... 
  • I was overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start...I was just staring at a blank page... 
  • I didn’t have the budget to hire a team or to spend $3,000 on one of those online “how to build your own infoproduct” courses... 
  • I didn’t know how to attract customers for the product once it was ready... 
  • I was worried about maintaining income level (and my ability to ever grow it)...

And so I stayed stuck...  

...until I discovered brandable, done-for-you content.  

For instance, I used this ready-to-go content to create bonuses for products I wanted to promote.  

All I had to do was download it, add some points I thought were important, and brand it.  

I saved at least a day of work this way, and at the time, I was billing out $2,000/day.  

I also earned several hundred dollars in commissions because I was able to offer a valuable bonus. 

Still, I noticed some problems with the brandable content out there...  

For one thing, some of the products weren't designed for learning and taking action.  

And when they were, the content was sometimes outsourced to non-native English speakers.  

Also, a lot of the done-for-you content out there was pretty bad...  

The sales and marketing products weren’t written by sales and marketing experts...and it definitely was not up to my standards. So I still had to spend a LOT of time editing it.  

So that's why I started Content Sparks, to provide high-quality, customizable sales and marketing courses. 

Today our team has created business training programs for Fortune 500 companies and small businesses for over 30 years... courses that get results.  

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 attract customers and clients...
  • Your program continues to sell, taking your business to that next level...without any extra work on your part...

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

"I had to come up with something on short notice…. I had purchased Mastering Mind Maps previously and was able to quickly put together a one hour presentation.... and it only took about an hour to create. It would have easily been 40 hours of work for me from scratch. This was a real life saver!"

Kate Rodrigue, Director, The Standard Insurance

"I often use Content Sparks to put out a ‘test’ product, see if there's any interest. I was surprised at the speed that I can put something together to test, so that's saved me tens of thousands of pounds.  

Also, if I do a talk or workshop, I have something to sell at the end of it.... since I don't always know who will be in the room or what their needs are."  

Sarah Arrow, Birds on the Blog

"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 & Business Leadership Coach

"Thanks to Content Sparks, I’ve been able to start a membership site. I always wanted to do it, but never had the time. I’m charging $27 and $97 per month and am using Content Sparks products to drip new content each month. With 50 members at the $27/month right now, that's an additional $1,350/month right there, all from a $149 investment."

Tamara Patzer, Local Marketing Director & Social Media Educator

"I used Content Sparks products to create a lead magnet for $37 intro coaching calls. I was blown away with the quality. And it saved me at least $50,000 worth of my time. With one solo ad, I got 123 emails and 65 phone numbers of prospects. Now it's up to me to call them!"

VaNessa Duplessie, The Coaches' Coach

"Sharyn's materials help me to stay stealthy. I'm able to develop new programs quickly and professionally, always offering something new to my members and leaders, giving me tremendous edge in the market. My network is growing rapidly and I'm expanding into other cities. Now, as leaders plug into the system I've created, I'm able to help them grow their business as well."

Jennifer H., Inspired Influencers Academy

"When it comes to premium customizable content, look no further than Sharyn's suite of products. This is beautifully researched and exquisitely crafted material. Even if you don't end up modifying and rebranding it for your own business, you're guaranteed to find the content itself incredibly useful. Sharyn's trainings drive even greater value into the customer equation; don't miss them. I've been in marketing for over three decades, and Sharyn and her team continue to impress me with each new release.  

This is first-rate stuff—highly recommended. Period."

Daniel Ulin, CEO and Founder, DHU Marketing
