Today, I'm very pleased to have Sarah Prout here with us.
Sarah is the founder of SPROUT PUBLISHING. SPROUT is a boutique media empire designed to inspire entrepreneurs about the wonderful world of online publishing.
Hi Sarah, great to have you here, if the people reading this ask, who is Sarah Prout, what would you say?
I would say that I’m the founder of SPROUT PUBLISHING, award-winning entrepreneur, author, publisher, business coach, online socialite and mother of 2 little darlings
Could you describe how you earn your living?
I like to teach people how to flaunt their enterprises and celebrate their success in order to inspire others through online and offline publishing (eBooks, books and eCourses).
You have an awesome number of followers on social media, how did you manage to build this profile? What are the techniques you use to get the right people onto your list?
At last count I have just over 23,000 followers on Twitter but is about quality and not quantity. The key to using Twitter effectively is relationship building. People want to get to know your personality first and then your business as a secondary element. I use key words and automation software to target the right type of people to connect with on Twitter.
What makes you stand out and shine in this competitive market?
I think the thing that makes me stand out a little is being prepared to share personal information and thoughts. People get too caught up in the fear of getting judged for their comments. The key is to connect with people on a human level and offer content that uplifts, entertains, supports and inspires.
If you lost it all tomorrow, what would you do to get it back?
I’d look at it as an opportunity to build a better business. I believe that everything happens for a reason. There have been many times when I’ve lost work and then in my re-building phase I’ve improved on the project. Sometimes every cloud does have a silver lining.
I understand you wrote Twitter Success Blueprint - Would you like to tell us more?
I wrote the Twitter Success Blueprint to help people maximize social media for business.
