Twitter Small Business Sunday #sbs

For those of you who are on twitter and who also follow Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis will be aware that every Sunday between 17:00 and 19:30 he offers small businesses the opportunity to promote themselves to him and in turn he ReTweets your tweet to his 82,000+ followers. Firstly, what a great idea and secondly it shouldn’t surprise me that Theo offers his time and generously helps support small and home-grown businesses in his own unique way.

This is my second week of trying out for the #sbs. I tweeted Theo at around 6pm with my short summary and my URL. I think it helps to have the URL so that people have something to click onto straight away to see what you are all about. Anyway, so I sent my tweet, did bath and bedtime with the little Crayons and promptly got distracted with doing some copy writing for Mr. Crayon’s StopForumSpam website and then a bit of overdue artwork framing (another glamorous Sunday evening at Crayons HQ).

It wasn’t until later when I logged into twitter that I saw all the messages of congratulations from my lovely followers and also complete strangers! What a lovely surprise. I am still dealing with all the lovely supportive messages that are pouring in and doing it all with a huge smile on my face.

I would like to thank Theo for chosing me, and I would like to congratulate my fellow #sbs club members this week. They are @artyglobe, @CotswoldNature, @LesleyKemp, @m2mmirrors, @TwentySevenWed.

I wish for us all a wonderfully busy week ahead!
