Small Business Sunday - P A Oxley Chosen by Theo Paphitis on 17th June 2011

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. Each week Theo rewards small businesses that tweet him @TheoPaphitis and describe their business in one tweet including the all-important hashtag #SBS. Only tweets made in the time slot between 5.00 PM and 7.30 PM each Sunday count.

Each week Theo reviews and chooses his favourite lucky six who are then re-tweeted. As he has nearly 350,000 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! 

We were very grateful to be chosen by Theo.  It has provided a large number of very useful business contacts and quite possibly did result in sales in the first few months after he chose us.
