Below you’ll find a list of things WE are responsible for VS things YOU are responsible for…
The owner of SparkLab, Amanda Ross, designed her first website in 2001 and she launched this Full-time agency in 2013 working with small to medium businesses in the real estate, urban planning, nonprofit, consulting, coaching and similar areas.
SparkLab focuses on building Learning Management Systems (LMS) for their clients using WordPress.
A 100% custom built LMS starts at $25,000.00 and takes 4 months to develop.
SparkLabLMS™ is not a custom built site but rather a fully developed LMS ready for you to use. We do include some customizations, like adding your logo, colours, fonts, branding colours. But we do not build each page for you (however we have included some templates you can use over and over again).
Additional customizations can be done at $150.00/hour (invoiced in 30 minutes intervals).
SparkLabLMS™ is an online training website built using WordPress. It includes everything you need to get started selling your online courses in a space you’re already comfortable in. The learning curve is low if you are already a WordPress user.

SparkLabLMS™ does not include any of your actual content (course content, your videos, your landing page verbiage, images, gifs, audios, or any other multi-media, sales content, ads, graphics, etc). Basically, we do not write copy, design pages, or develop any content for you. You are fully responsible for that.
If you have ever used WordPress, you can use SparkLabLMS™. It’s built on WordPress, so it’s incredibly simple. PLUS, our premium page builder makes everything extra simple – you will LOVE using it.
Nope. Not at all.
You can build everything without knowing any code.
However, you can use code on your pages if you’d like.
Enough that you could write a blog post, create a new page and understand the concept of how WordPress works. SO, basically…the basics!
We include a full 100+ video library that you can access 24-7 to guide you through just about anything you want to create.
After you submit your Brand Identity Request information, your site will be added to our schedule and work will be begin within 24-hours.
Seven days later we’ll send your Login details for you to start adding your content and courses!
You will also receive access to the video training library at that point with some extra handy “Quick launches” to get you moving FAST!
Anything YOU add to your SparkLabLMS™ is yours. We do NOT own any of your course content (videos, graphics, PDFs, downloads, audios, verbiage), sales page content, images, videos or other multimedia you added to your SparkLabLMS™ site.
If your course is already developed and ready to go – you can have it up and running in 24-hours. It’s that simple.
No, not your full site. SparkLabLMS™ is its own entity.
However, we can guide you on how to move your online course content or any other content over to SparkLabLMS™. It’s WordPress – there’s always a way! 😉
While an entire site/theme cannot be imported, there’s always a way to bring your content over to SparkLabLMS™!
Absolutely not. We include a sub-domain under the SparkLabLMS.com url, example: chosenname.SparkLabLMS.com.
But, if you’d like it to be a domain name of your choosing, yes, we can include a domain for a small fee OR if you already have a domain we can guide you on how to EASILY point it to your site (so simple).
Nope. SparkLabLMS™ is hosted on our premium Cloud hosting. It’s fast, secure and reliable.
No. We do not support any other theme then the one we provide to you. Please know that you no longer really need a theme as our page builder helps you customize EVERY part of your site (including the header and footer).
The #1 place hackers look for vulnerabilities is within insecure plugins. Having said that, yes, you can add plugins of your choosing. While, we are unable to have knowledge of every plugin available and the issues they could cause if they are in conflict with our setup, we do not hold you back from customizing your site.
We share a list of recommended plugins (free and premium) that we trust and believe to be secure. If you need help installing one of our recommended plugins, we are happy to help for a small fee.
If your site is damaged due to a plugin on our recommended list, we will jump in to help you resolve the issue as quickly as possible by flipping to your most recent site backup (backups are pulled every day).
If your site is damaged due to a plugin that is NOT on our recommended list, we can help you for a fee that will be decided at the time of request.
Never. Your income is your own.
You’re the one out there working to grow your business, and we’re just super pumped to partner with you and do what we do best to make it easy for you to sell your products and services.
Stripe or PayPal.
Stripe moves money into your business bank account every 3-7 days (check with them to confirm).
PayPal relies on you to move your money when you’re ready (check with them to confirm).
You can choose either to use with your SparkLabLMS™ account.
Not from SparkLabLMS™. But, yes, both Stripe and PayPal have transaction fees that you will pay directly to them, Please review their terms of service and all details to make the right choice for you.
We have a ticketing portal that you will have 24-7 access to. We do our very best to respond to every request within 24-hours 7-days a week, even on holidays.
We know how frustrating it can be when you are stuck and the service desk is closed, so we try to get you moving as quickly as we can.
You will have access to our full 100+ video training library, plus you can submit tickets to us 24-7.

We also include premium options of support (technical or design) at an hourly rate.
No. We recommend Vimeo Pro or Youtube free (unlisted videos).
As many as you want. Yes, at some point you will hit a limit and we’ll reach out to – but you’d have to add about 500 courses for that to happen. 😉
Yes, any time you choose. And, we make it simple because, let’s be honest, if you’re not happy, we do NOT want to make you anymore unhappy.
