Small Business Sunday

This is a great way to get your business noticed and a number of Businesses across the Borough have already benefitted.

Small Business Sunday, shortened to the hashtag #SBS on Twitter, was created by Theo Paphitis in October 2010. Theo is best known for appearing on Dragons Den on BBC Two. He is Chairman of Ryman Stationery plus Boux Avenue lingerie, Robert Dyas and latest acquisition London Graphic Centre, as well as joint owner of Red Letter Days.

Theo is also a mentor and investor to many other business acquainted via the Den including Wedgewelly and Fit Mix Pro

Each week, Theo rewards small businesses that tweet him @TheoPaphitis and describe their businesses in one tweet including the all-important hashtag #SBS. Only tweets made in the time slot between 5PM and 7.30PM each Sunday count.

Every Monday night at 8pm, Theo reviews and chooses his favourite lucky six who are then re-tweeted. As he has over 500,000 followers, this provides a massive boost to the chosen lucky businesses.

The benefits range from increased Twitter followers, to positive media publicity and crucially for many, increased sales! Of course, none of this is guaranteed as it is largely down to perseverance and hard work. A smidgen of luck comes in handy.

Here is a list of local businesses that i’m aware of that have been one of the weekly #SBS winners

The Lovebus Wedding Company
Linian Crane & Hoist Company
