Thanks to Content Sparks, I’ve been able to start a membership site

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.

Amazing community support, powerful and timely support

I have to say that I recently took part in a 10-day challenge that Sharyn and Content Sparks developed, and it moved me to complete a project I had been putting off for more than a year. Looking back, I feel that the amazing community support, powerful and timely support and an outstanding process guided me to successfully complete my project in the 10 days, something I didn't really think I could do. If you get the chance to take part in one of Sharyn's future challenges I recommend that you jump in. you'll be so glad you did!

Thanks to Sharyn Sheldon and her crew at Content Sparks

Just want to give a huge shout-out of thanks to Sharyn Sheldon and her crew at Content Sparks…been reading over some of the material I picked up for my education biz and it's fantastic. It's like having a great script to work with and now as the actor/director it's my job to put my own spin on it…but isn't great to have the script to work from? Again, thanks a bunch for being so great at what you do!
