You can add default content to most template modules, which you can use to create a starting point for content using that module. You can edit content in the content editor or can also prevent editing in content editors to lock default content on the template.

Please note: once a module containing default content is edited in the content editor, any new default content in the design manager will not replace edited versions of that module.
