Titan Jewellery receiving award from Theo Paphitis.
Small Business Sunday, shortened to the hashtag #SBS on Twitter, was created by Theo Paphitis in October 2010. Theo is Chairman of Ryman Stationery, Boux Avenue lingerie and Robert Dyas, as well as being known for his many investments on Dragons’ Den.
Each week on a Sunday Theo invites small business’ to Tweet him about their business. Theo will then hand pick his favourite 6 business’ and will retweet them to his 400,000+ followers on Twitter for an instant boost to both your Twitter account, and website.
The retweet is only the beginning, the winners are also featured on Theo’s website www.theopaphitissbs.com where they have access to numerous benefits and offers exclusive to #SBS winners, including the chance to pitch for a £50,000 investment in your business.
One of the best features of being an #SBS winner is the exclusive club that you are now part of. If you are after help or advice there will be another member there to help, or offer advice.
We entered, tweeting Theo on 22nd September 2013. After being short listed, and a personal visit to our website www.titanjewellery.co.uk by Theo, we were announced as a winner on Monday 23rd. Instantly our Twitter account @TitanJewellery was overrun with both welcoming messages and new followers, and a dramatic increase in website visitors.
On Thursday 28th November the complete family of Theo Paphitias #SBS
winners were invited to ICC Arena in Birmingham for a winners conference, and photo opportunity with Theo.
