How to Build a Motivated, Productive, and Cohesive Virtual Team of Remote Workers

Why share or sell ‘Managing Remote Teams'?
Most small business owners today have at least a few people who work remotely. In some cases, their entire team may consist of virtual employees, freelancers, and remote workers.
Many of those team members may be very experienced and comfortable working remotely. Others may be new to operating out-of-office.
Either way, managing a team that never sees each other in person brings a whole slew of challenges, such as:
How do you know if they're doing their work?
How do you coach and motivate them?
How can you encourage collaboration?
How do you avoid feelings of isolation?
Luckily, the benefits of having a remote team far outweigh the management challenges since you'll end up with:
- Increased productivity
- Happier employees
- Lower expenses
- Greater creativity
But to get to that point, remote team managers need to work on some key skills and set up a few reliable systems.
And YOU can be the one to give them that help and guidance.
You don’t even have to create any of the course content yourself!
With our premium, Ready-to-Teach course, you can quickly get your own online course or coaching program launched in as little as a weekend.
In Managing Remote Teams you’ll teach your students or coaching clients how to:
- Identify the behaviors and characteristics they need to develop to be an effective manager of a remote team
- Ensure everyone on the team communicates clearly and has the information they need when they need it
- Motivate their team by getting to know each individual and what drives them
- Build a collaborative team culture, so that everyone is working towards the same goals

Here’s How Done-For-You Products From Content Sparks Will Boost Your Revenue
Hi, I’m Sharyn Sheldon, founder of Content Sparks.
After starting my very first online business, I found myself stuck…
I knew that creating my own sales and marketing products would take my new business to the next level…
However, I didn’t have the time to create all of the content myself, and I didn’t have the budget to hire a team to help me.
Then I discovered brandable, done-for-you content.
In month one, I saved $2,000 of my time and EARNED several hundred dollars in commissions.
Still, I noticed that the brandable content I was buying wasn’t designed for learning and getting results. It wasn't written by sales and marketing experts…and it definitely was not all up to my standards.
That's why I created Content Sparks – to provide high-quality, done-for-you 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 gets results.
Just imagine this scenario:
- You have a high-quality, brandable, done-for-you course in just minutes…
- You share or sell the course for a fraction of the cost of starting from scratch…
- You expand your reputation as a go-to resource AND have a source of passive income
In fact, here’s what business owners just like you have to say about Content Sparks:
This is first-rate stuff—highly recommended. Period.”–Daniel Ulin

Still not sure? Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions:
What does my license allow me to do with my Content Sparks content?
Your license gives you the rights to edit or cut up the content into sections, combine it with other content, or transform it to other media formats (such as audio, video, graphics, etc).
You can then share or sell the content with paid customers or prospects who have given you contact details.
The exception is the content meant for promotion, such as tweets, blog posts, and graphics. You can publish those freely anywhere on the web to drive traffic to your site and offers.
What am I NOT allowed to do with my Content Sparks content?
You are not allowed to sell or give away a license or the editable files to anyone else. That means you can NOT sell or share the Private Label Rights (PLR), Resell Rights, or Master Resell Rights to anyone.
Also, you are not allowed to publish the content freely on the web where anyone can read or download it, including free membership sites or forums. The exception is promotional materials, as mentioned above. This protects the value of your content.
Do I have to rewrite the content?
You have the option to rewrite it if you choose, but it is not necessary. However, we recommend that you rewrite and add to any web-based content that you want found by search engines (like Google), so that it will rank higher in search engines. Adding value to existing content is also important, such as additional images, examples, stories, or lists of resources. By adding your own personal examples and experience, you'll boost your reputation and credibility exponentially.
What should I charge for the content once I've made it into a product?
Pricing your content is always a challenge and it depends on your own market. Some people charge $97 for a webinar series. Others add it to a $27/month paid membership program each month. And some have charged as much as $1997 for a full training program with coaching added.
Take a look at what competitors and similar businesses are charging in your industry. Then find your own middle ground based on how you want to position yourself.
We recommend that you never charge less than $27, depending on the length of the program, and charge more if you're adding live or video elements. Charge even more if you're adding coaching.
If I want to set up a sales funnel, how do I get started?
