The idea for Sprout Connectors was born in the Summer of 2018 when Deevo Tindall and Lisa Staff, two successful business owners and influencers, decided to combine forces and fill a real need in the small business world. Many small businesses and entrepreneurs simply lack the budget for a full-scale marketing team and end up outsourcing for their expertise. Sprout Connectors could help ensure that those businesses are making smart investments by connecting them to the right experts and helping them properly leverage the power of social media.
Now, our goal is to help you create strategic and quality content that is engaging, relevant and worth checking out. Social media usage has skyrocketed since the days of the first social networks — nearly everyone spends their day glued to their smartphones and tablets, consuming digital content. By merging your social media marketing with your traditional marketing, you can take advantage of this still-underutilized avenue and maximize the return on your investment. We’ll help you keep them coming back for more.
We offer digital marketing and content creation solutions along with strategic marketing and branding consulting for small businesses, entrepreneurs, and creatives. We differ from large scale marketing firms in that this is more than just a business transaction to us. We truly become your strategic partner — and we do it without the overhead associated with hiring someone exclusive to that field. We will focus on creating a collaborative environment in which all of us feel comfortable so that you can trust that we have your best interests at heart.
