Street Team Guide
We’ve received your agreement. This step is all taken care of. Let’s move on to the good stuff.
Critical Step: We require prepayment before we can confirm desired dates.
Get your payment submitted. Your invoice will be sent to the billing email listed on the agreement.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are not in the San Antonio area and your travel expense estimate is over $500, we require a $500 down payment on travel. You will receive an invoice for this as well.
If you’d like to speed up the booking process, you can pay by credit card on the invoice link you'll receive OR overnight a check directly to: Sprout Marketing, ATTN: Street Team Department, 18911 Hardy Oak Blvd, San Antonio, TX 78258
Reach out immediately with any billing questions.
Let's start designing!
While we are waiting for payment, fill out and submit the DRFQ (Design Request Form and Questionnaire). Be as detailed as possible. Our team will use this to get to know your community.
After we receive your design request, our designers will get right to work on it. You can expect a draft within 24 hours.
We allow for one complimentary round of revisions - so review carefully and send over any changes you’d like. We can change the colors, fonts, and photos.
Once your flyer is approved we are ready to book travel (if necessary) and we can confirm all dates for your Street Team.
PLEASE NOTE: Your Street Team dates cannot officially be scheduled until we receive payment and final approval on your flyer design.
This is the best part. Our experienced Street Teamers hit the streets for you.
We will send any HOT LEADS your way!
Once Street Team is complete, your team will receive the following:
Record of all leads and contacts with detailed notes
Access to DIY OUTREACH TOOLKIT to keep the momentum going
Final travel invoice - due within 30 days to avoid late fees. After 30 days, a $75 late fee will be assessed each month payment is not received.
Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions during the process. Our team is happy to help.

Street Team FAQS
WE WANT TO USE OUR OWN FLYER. CAN SPROUT PRINT IT FOR US?
We’d be happy to print your materials. We’ll verify that the file is in the needed format to print. If additional reformatting is required, a fee may apply. Print rate will be quoted for approval.
CAN OUR FLYER BE TRANSLATED INTO SPANISH?
Yes! We charge a $25 translation fee. If this design is in addition to your English design, an additional design fee may apply. We can also print your designs front (English) and back (Spanish).
CAN THE SPROUT STREET TEAM STAY IN ONE OF OUR CORPORATE SUITES?
Not at this time. Travel fees that we quote include a hotel stay.
CAN ONE OF OUR TEAM MEMBERS GO ALONG WITH THE SPROUT TEAM FOR TRAINING PURPOSES?
Unfortunately, the answer to this one is no (we promise, there are a couple of good reasons why we can’t!). First of all, our insurance company gets a little squirmy when it comes to having non-Sprout employees ride along with us. Second, we are trying to get your community as much bang for your buck as possible. Our goal is to visit as many businesses as we can within our allotted time. The in-person training takes more time and hinders us from reaching our overall goal. Not to fear… we have another option for you since we are huge believers in training. We offer a one-on-one webinar training for your team focused on outreach marketing and how to follow up on the leads we’ll generate during the Street Team. You can select it as an add-on to your Street Team agreement.
CAN WE MEET UP WITH YOUR TEAM WHILE THEY ARE IN TOWN?
We’d love to meet up, but we have a super tight schedule with our goal of visiting as many businesses as possible and tight travel arrangements!
CAN WE PROVIDE A LIST OF BUSINESSES THAT WE'D LIKE YOU TO VISIT?
You can provide up to five businesses that you’d like our team to visit. We will do our absolute best to make good contact at those businesses. Something to keep in mind: if it’s a business that you or your team has had a hard time getting into, we probably won’t be able to get in during our time. (Some larger corporations and military facilities have strict policies.)
HOW MANY BUSINESSES DOES THE STREET TEAM VISIT PER DAY?
Our goal is to visit between 35-40 business per day. Total numbers may vary by location and circumstances.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN WE EXPECT?
Our number one goal is to raise as much awareness for your community as possible. Think about it like planting seeds in your neighborhood that will have success at different times. There are times that we find “HOT” leads on the spot. Our team will share these with your team immediately. Some efforts will need a little more nurturing by your team. That’s why we provide you with an awesome follow-up spreadsheet, so that you can keep the momentum going!
