Sparksheet is an award-winning multiplatform magazine. We explore how brands are using different platforms to get relevant content to the right people wherever they may be.

We believe that we are living in a world where media outlets are becoming more like brands and brands are becoming more like media. While content creators are experimenting with new business models and digital platforms, businesses are using content to tell their stories, engage people, and make money.

Our mission is to help media and marketing professionals make sense of these changes and to spark new ideas for how brands can use content to communicate in a more human, compelling and platform-agnostic way.

Powered by Spafax, a tenthavenue/WPP content marketing agency, we are committed to being an editorially independent, transparent and forward-thinking business publication. We are not published on behalf of a client and we don’t have any advertising or sponsored content on the site unless specifically noted.

Sign up for our monthly newsletter to have Sparksheet delivered directly to your inbox. We also invite you to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and let us know if you or anyone at your company have any sparks to share.
