Starter Content For Your Courses

I often have conversations with people who want to start an online course but they don’t know where to begin.

Or, they know where to begin but it seems overwhelming.

I have long believed that the hardest part of any project is starting it. Once you start with your online course then you will slowly gain momentum and it becomes easier to work on it.

If you can relate to this then perhaps you should consider leveraging some starter content for your courses by leveraging private label right material.

Private label rights (PLR) refers to products that you can use to create your own content. You can often re-sell this content too. It is a great way to start creating your online course or learning program.

Affordable PLR Content For Your Course

PLR content isn’t free.

In the online learning space you could pay thousands of dollars for the rights to use and resell an already built course. If you have the budget for this then by all means you should pursue those avenues.

But if you have a smaller budget and are just looking for quality PLR material, then you should check out ContentSparks.

ContentSparks has a massive library of PLR content that you can use today to supplement a course or to create an entire new course offering. They have plenty of in-demand topics, including:

  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Blogging
  • Branding
  • Content Marketing
  • Customer Service
  • Email Marketing
  • Lead Generation
  • Mobile Marketing
  • Sales
  • Social Media
  • Strategy
  • Video Marketing

My recommendation would be to use their pre-made content but to modify it in your own way to make your courses unique. I can say that the content is pretty good in these PLR packages but it isn’t perfect. You will want to make sure to review it and adjust it for your audience as you see fit.

But doing reviews of content is a heck of a lot easier than trying to create unique content from scratch. You can focus on adding your own modules where it makes sense within these topics.

    1. From my experience I’ve found velsoft courseware is pretty standard in terms of being structured and organized for content. It helps save time from researching models and examples on the internet and piecing it together as an instructional course. They come with old school flyers, powerpoint decks (using old clip art) trainer’s guide, participant guide and handouts. A complete training pack if you were delivering a life course. I definitely had to edit and customize the material for my audience. Overall it helped save time.
      However, the price point for velsoft might not make it worth the investment.

      I’ve also purchased materials from contentsparks. The person behind the products, Sharyn, used to be a trainer herself. She has done a good job creating a similar set of materials and keeps it at a fraction of the cost. I’m actually using one of her products write now as a base for an online course on website content writing.

      Either way, you’ll have so spend time or money customizing the courseware. But both options definitely give a good headstart.
