Do you love a good hot dog? At Spike’s Junkyard Dogs, “good” doesn’t come close! Home of the world’s greatest hot dog, Spike’s is nothing shy of spectacular.

This all-American franchise has carved out a delicious and unique brand flavor, and they’re considered local celebrities at their five New England locations.

Spike’s came to us because their current website was’t reflecting the quality they put into their food and service. So we began with a brand new, mobile-first design. They already had a posse of loyal followers, but we wanted to help them attract new ones.


Spike’s Becomes Optimized & Responsive

With a mobile-friendly website, hungry seekers can now find Spike’s in Google searches right from their phones. The website is optimized by location, and they can now be found on the first page of Google for dozens of food searches.

Professional Website for a Chamber of Commerce

Monday 20th February 2017

Sprout has a long and rich relationship with the Hooksett Chamber of Commerce. As active members and marketers for their local events, we couldn’t wait to create a new website for the Chamber.

We began by researching other chamber websites around New England, identifying elements that would make for a consistent and functional website design in this specific niche. We found that many chamber sites were poorly built, and we were determined to make the Hooksett Chamber stand out among its peers.


Functionality and Beauty in One Website

With a clean mobile-first design, the Chamber website includes clear and concise sections and large call-to-action buttons. It includes a full-width navigation, subdued banner photos of local landmarks, and convenient pay online options.

We’re confident that the Hooksett Chamber has one of the most functional, modern, and well-optimized chamber websites in the area. We’re proud to be members of such a tight-knit business community as the Hooksett Chamber, and their new website reflects upon the care and quality of all the businesses it represents.

Helping Others is Our Mission at Sprout

Friday 21st October 2016

I had a great experience this past Monday. I had to pay cash at the toll because my transponder wasn’t in my car. When I got there, I gave the toll collector an extra dollar to pay for the person behind me. I watched the stranger’s reaction from a distance as I pulled away. A few miles down the highway, he caught up with me and gave me a thumbs up! It felt great to have made someone’s day, just for one dollar. It made me want to go back and do it again.

Kindness is not in the value or quantity of the gift, but in the value of caring for another person. It always means more to the person receiving than it does for the person who is doing the giving.

I’ve talked before about how at Sprout, we don’t sell anything. We are in the business of helping business owners–people–reach their goals. We do this even if it means referring them to someone else. By continually giving and helping, we build trust and relationships that goes far beyond business. We have a higher purpose.

At Sprout, we are ready to work with you–the business owner serious about growth. Serious about achieving success, and using that success to help others. That’s what it’s all about. Maybe it starts with a dollar at a tollbooth. Ultimately, it starts when you decide it’s time to start. And it keeps going, because there is no finish line when it comes to helping others. That’s what we we’re here for, after all.

Reach out to Sprout, we’d love to help you grow.

A Growing Web Presence for Commercial Electricians

Wednesday 7th September 2016

Meet Harry-O Electrical Corporation, the electrical contractors you want to know in New Hampshire. When this skilled team came to Sprout, they were looking to expand their well-established business into the online realm.

Their goals? To grow awareness of their expertise, establish a strong web presence, and attract commercial, industrial, and residential electrical clientele.

Finding Success Beyond Word-of-Mouth


Before beginning with Sprout, Harry-O had achieved success through referrals, as their clients passed along the word about their quality of work. 

With a great reputation to start with, our job was that much easier! Some folks were already familiar with the “O-Team,” and we needed to build a website that complemented their ethics and brand.

The existing Harry-O Electrical website wasn’t bringing in leads like they wanted. This was primarily because it was not mobile-responsive or optimized for search engines.

We worked with them every step of the way, ensuring they had a valued voice throughout the creative process. The result was a new website that carried their unique tone, reflected their message, and that looks beautiful on desktops, tablets, and phones.


Harry-O’s new website was recently tested by a third party reviewer, and the results stated that the site was “fast and efficient.” Take a look at Harry O’s website and see for yourself! After less than one month, Harry-O is already beginning to experience web leads through organic search results. Here’s to their continued success!

Our growing relationship with an employment agency

Thursday 4th August 2016

We first met the folks from Sparks Employment Group at an open house we were hosting in 2015. They happened to be in the market for a new office location, and soon enough we became neighbors.

As Dr. Bernie and Anna-Marie Sparks were meeting with us one day to discuss how we could best pass business back and forth, we began discussing SEO and website design. We shared with them how they could reach more companies and help more people find work with a strong web presence.


As experts in the employment industry, Sparks knows a thing or two about connecting with people. They take a unique approach to permanent recruiting, finding candidates with both the personality and skill set that will ensure a strong compatibility with the hiring company.

We wanted to help them share their important services with both employers and job seekers in a way that would bring about more lasting connections.


Helping Sparks grow, growing with Sparks

Sprout’s relationship with Sparks has already come a long way, beginning as fellow chamber members, then neighbors, then clients, and now friends and business colleagues.

With their newly designed and optimized website, Sparks has a professional and approachable online presence that will keep them relevant, and more importantly, connected with future clientele.

We look forward to helping Sparks grow, connecting more companies with more people.

Email Marketing Workshop Success: Before & After

Monday 1st August 2016

After Joanne Randall of Sprout presented a recent email marketing workshop, we held an informal contest to see who had learned their lesson: What goes into creating a solid email marketing design?

Contestants had to analyze this newsletter to determine ways it could be improved.

The winner was Jessica, Health Promotion Advisor at the NH Department of Health and Human Services. Based on what she learned attending one of Sprout’s digital marketing workshops, she knew exactly what could make the newsletter better.

She said it needed these things:

  • Change the layout to a single column
  • Limit the quantity of information
  • Needs a call to action
  • Too much text
  • Better branding (logo and slogan)
  • Change the name of the newsletter

Guess what? ConcordTV optimized their newsletter with these practices, and now it’s all the better for it. See for yourself:

Here’s what Jessica had to say about her workshop experience: 

“Thanks for your classes! I only was able to attend one, but I got a lot out of it. Now I just need more time to practice what I learned!”

Beautiful Branding for an Interior Design Company

Wednesday 27th July 2016

Aimee Brothers of Lavender & Lotus Interior Design has been wonderful to work with. She owns and operates the company, providing complete interior design services including creating 3D digital models.

Her specialty is in helping homeowners visualize their design before it happens. She frequently partners with contractors to ensure their clients are satisfied with the design before construction begins.

Aimee came to Sprout with a website that needed a few updates to bring it into the world of mobile search. She blogged actively on her site and had galleries of her outstanding design work, and we wanted to give her a new design and help her show it all off.

Steps to Success

We helped Aimee by providing copy writing that expressed her personality and her passion for helping people achieve their dreams.

Helping a Cleaning Company Grow From 3 to 40 Employees

Wednesday 13th July 2016

Clean, reputable, and affordable. Just the way we like it.

If you live in the New England area and spend time in commercial buildings, you’ve probably seen New Hampshire Cleaning Services’ finest at work. This team had humble beginnings, but now they’re the last word in commercial cleaning in Southern New Hampshire.

NH Cleaning Service started working with Sprout five years ago. They had an established small business and a strong dedication to their craft. But they needed to spread the word. They wanted to grow.


We all started somewhere, right? Looking at them now it’s hard to believe, but NH Cleaning Service started with three staff members and a home-based business.

Over the years, we’ve helped NHCS reach and exceed their original goals. But did that stop them? Of course not. When you have an outstanding service that blows the competition out of the water, why wouldn’t you want to share it with as many people as possible? That’s exactly what they’ve done.

A Relationship Centered Around Growing

We began by creating a beautiful, simple starter website for NHCS. This helped them become competitive in online searches, and they experienced an inflow of new leads that turned into recurring clients.

Next, we helped them increase their brand awareness by designing a flyer and printed materials that matched their company vision. They grew and gained a few more commercial clients.

After two years of steady growth, we began a Google AdWords campaign, focusing on marketing to key cities with high-end commercial clientele. By then, NHCS had opened an office in Concord and employed numerous staff members.

Today, the leads keep coming in, and what was once a small cleaning company is now a leading commercial cleaning company in New Hampshire.


Celebrating the Success of NH Cleaning Service

Sprout started helping NHCS by doing what we do best. The results? They get to do what they do best: helping more people in more places. Most recently, we have begun blogging for NHCS to help them stay fresh and relevant, sharing their expertise and stories with their valued clients.

A few of NHCS’s current customers include the FBI, Southern New Hampshire University, The American Red Cross, and WMUR Television.

Thursday 30th June 2016

Throughout her career, Joanne has obtained significant experience in the restaurant industry, and has been certified to instruct ServSafe courses for many years. After taking some time to focus on Sprout for Business, Joanne decided to become re-certified in order to provide the most effective marketing services possible for her clients in the restaurant industry.

Joanne makes it a priority to understand the needs of her clients in every industry, and in so doing she is able to provide accurate and productive marketing solutions.

Bringing a Contracting Company to the First Page of Google

Friday 3rd June 2016

This past month, Sprout had the chance to work with Visual Changes, a home improvement company in Concord, NH. They do outstanding contracting work around the state, specializing in siding, roofing, windows & doors.

Their old website was responsive for mobile screens, but it wasn’t quite generating the leads they hoped it would. They wanted what every business wants–to get a steady stream of leads from their website.


We built a clean, beautiful website that matched the quality of craftsmanship that they pour into every project they do. With a great design, strong copy writing and effective SEO incorporated into the website, Sprout helped Visual Changes achieve what they’ve always wanted.

Their new website is beginning to come up for relevant keyword searches. With their strong web presence, it won’t be long before the leads begin rolling in.

Celebrating the Success of STARKEY Realty!

Wednesday 25th May 2016

We began working with Melissa Starkey of STARKEY Realty earlier this year on her custom real estate website. Things progressed, and the busy season took its toll. Melissa reached out to us last week with some of the remaining information we needed to complete her site. She asked if we’d be able to finish the site in time for her ribbon cutting ceremony on May 24, which was a couple days away. And we said, sure.


It’s the little things like prioritizing a website for a local business in time for their launch event that sets Sprout apart. With a little maneuvering, we were able to publish the site in time to have it scrolling on the big screen as Mayor Jim Bouley cut the ceremonial ribbon, welcoming STARKEY Realty into the Main St. business community.


The STARKEY Realty office is located at 132.5 N. Main Street in Concord, NH.

Beyond the services of copy writing, web design, and SEO, we’re a team of people that cares deeply about the success of your company and the enrichment of the business community overall.

Want to work with people who’s success is based on your success? Contact us to find out what the Sprout experience is all about. We’re in the business of growing your company and enriching the business community. Let’s start working together!

One Game Company’s Growing Community

Wednesday 10th February 2016

Chroma Cards is a customizable card game created by Wild East Game Company. They’re an innovative group with a passion for creating and sharing new games with their growing community of followers.

The crew at Wild East Games is made up of dedicated tabletop gamers who remind us of a purer time. A time when cards and multi-faceted dice led to other worlds and a deeper sense of community.

Community is everything at Chroma Cards

The great thing about tabletop games is that they’re not a solo sport. They require community, and community requires awareness. We built a website for Chroma Cards that details their awesome collections and highlights what makes them unique, like the fact that the games are colorblind-friendly and totally customizable!

It only makes sense that these gamers have a website as sweet as the games they share. With a high-quality mobile friendly layout, anyone can browse and buy their games right from their phone!

What we really like about Chroma Cards is their desire to share something great with other people, to connect and build a community. That’s what Sprout is all about, after all.
