Congratulations another Theo Paphitis Dragons Den #SBS winner @ShopOnYourDoorstep

Theo Paphitis #SBS Award Winner

On Sunday evenings Theo Paphitis of BBC’s Dragons Den runs a competition on Twitter called Small Business Sunday (“SBS”).

To enter this competition, businesses must send a tweet to @TheoPaphitis between 5:00pm and 7:30pm using the hashtag #SBS. Theo reads all the entries and personally selects his favourite six to retweet to his massive list of followers that currently stands at over 230,000.
He says he started the competition in October 2010 because, “Sunday is the day that I do all my thinking”.
Yesterday, (Sunday 18 March 2012 – Mother’s Day) there were an amazing 1,747 tweets to @TheoPaphitis with the #SBS hashtag. (Statistics courtesy of @virtualbuscent).
Sarah Dening, owner of Shop On Your Doorstep, was chosen by Theo Paphitis as one of his winners. Her tweet was then retweeted to his 230,000 followers:

@TheoPaphitis pick me for #sbs – online retail store run by mum of 4 in Broadstairs, Kent – gorgeous gifts for everyone www.ShopOnYourDoorstep.com
Sarah said, “I’m thrilled to have won this award from Theo Paphitis – after months of trying. My online store www.ShopOnYourDoorstep.com has been trading under 2 years and to attract this level of endorsement is amazing. Needless to say, I look forward to meeting Theo on 30th March at his SBS Winners Event in Birmingham”.
“The initial response has been fantastic. My number of followers on Twitter has increased by over 300 in a matter of hours, and traffic to my website is also up. I would encourage any small business owner to tweet Theo on Sunday”.
