How to Create Worksheets from Articles

Sample of worksheet created from PLR article

Worksheets and checklists provide a tremendous amount of value to any content you create.

They help people take action on what they've learned, which means your readers and customers will have better results and more success from your products.

[tbpquotable]Successful customers = loyal customers who will return to purchase from you again and again, and who'll recommend you to their friends.[/tbpquotable]

What's great about worksheets is that they're incredibly easy to create.

In this video, I've demonstrated just how fast you can put together a worksheet or checklist of your own to go along with a PLR article.


As you watch the video, you'll see that I used an article that already was set up with specific steps. Those are the easiest ones to work with.

Then I just copied the article into a new document, renamed it, and took out the extra text.

Expert Tip: Make sure that each item in your worksheet is “actionable”. It should be a specific question people can answer after reading your content, or a tasks they need to complete.

Pretty formatting and colors, along with your logo, will make your worksheet look more professional as well.

    • Thanks, Glennete. It’s amazing how easy this is to do and yet I think a lot of people don’t realize how valuable it is. There’s nothing quite like writing down what you learned and what you plan to do to up the odds of success!

  • Hi Sharyn

    That’s great! I’ve wanted to offer customers something other than just a report, but didn’t know how to do it.

    Thank you SO much!

    • Hi Shan,

      Definitely add some worksheets, templates, checklists etc. whenever you can. It’s the only way to really make sure people start taking action. Glad you liked the video :).

  • Great video Sharyn! Action steps are very powerful in helping with projects, goals, and checklists. Action steps help you move towards whatever it is that you are trying to accomplish. That is why I’ve developed an easy and beautiful software system called to help individuals achieve the results they are looking for. Whatever system you use, the most important thing to remember is to take action and your worksheet gives a concrete platform to help people do just that.

    • Hi Brenda! You are the action planning expert, that’s for sure. I’m still planning on checking out that software. It looks awesome.
      Thanks for watching the video :).

  • Hi Sharon,

    Great tip on creating worksheet give-aways to clients/prospects. People love worksheets and actionable checklists. From the looks of it nothing could be easier than transforming plr articles into helpful worksheets.

    Your training video (explaining as you went) was eight minutes I bet if you swept away the explaining part you could have banged it out in two! What a great way to repurpose PLR.

    • Lol, you’re too optimistic Mark. I may be able to do the content part in just a couple minutes, but I’d probably spend a lot longer than that on just playing around with formatting. I’m trying to use standard templates more and more, as well as outsourcing some of that sort of thing.
      Thanks for checking out the video, even if it WAS a little long :).

  • Perfect….now I know exactly what else I need to give to folks in my gigs and also my students trying to level up.

    Worksheets/action sheets…whatever you call em are definitely the smartest thing you could offer others that are trying to replicate systems or trying to achieve similar results.

    Nice post and thanks for the tips.

    • Hi Carlos,
      I’m really glad you see the value in them. That’s one of the reasons I always try to include extra tools like worksheets and templates in my PLR. They can make a huge difference, so long as people actually use them ;).
      Thanks for checking out the video!
