At the end of September, Wilson’s Flooring Specialists were delighted to receive a business boost from Retail Entrepreneur Theo Paphitis. Last week, we tweeted Theo about our family-run flooring business during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was one of six weekly winners to gain a retweet by Theo to his 500,000 Twitter followers. The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010, now has over 2000 #SBS winners and supports small businesses in the UK.
Business and retail entrepreneur and self-confessed Shopkeeper, Theo re‐tweeted Wilson’s Flooring Specialists message to his almost 500,000 followers and as a result, we have seen our Twitter following grow and our website traffic increase. We are also profiled on the #SBS website that is exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.
Linda Wilson, director of Wilson’s Flooring Specialists, said, “We have been running Wilson’s Flooring Specialists for more than 30 years so it was fantastic to receive support from Theo and have our hard work recognised not just locally but nationally by hundreds of other businesses. We are really looking forward to attending the SBS event next year where we will meet Theo himself”
Small business champion and Ryman Stationery, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue Chairman, Theo Paphitis, said: “We are thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK. My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings. The website and Shop #SBS will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish Wirral-based Wilson’s Flooring Specialists every success.”
