On Monday, Jude Robinson, joint owner and Director of GWR Fasteners Limited, tweeted Theo about their business during ‘Small Business Sunday’, an initiative set up by Theo that runs weekly.
Theo re-tweeted Jude’s message to his 300,000 followers and as a result, the business (www.gwr-fasteners.co.uk) had over 200 more Twitter followers and more than tripled the hits to their company website in a matter of a few hours. They are now profiled on a new website www.theopaphitissbs.com which is exclusive to Small Business Sunday winners.
Jude Robinson said “We’ve been in business for over three years and this year, we have received recognition from several areas. We won an Innovation Award earlier this year at the inaugural Oswestry & Border Chronicle Business Awards for our unique coloured stainless fasteners, and we were a Finalist in the Powys Business Awards in the Small Business Award category. To be recognised by someone as renowned as Theo Paphitis in the world of business, is the icing on the cake. His re-tweet has raised our profile already and we are so grateful to him.”
Anyone looking for a re-tweet from Theo should tweet him about their business on Sunday between 5p.m. and 7.30p.m. and include the hashtag #SBS. Six lucky businesses are re-tweeted every Monday at 8p.m. and then invited to enter their profile on the new website. This is done free of charge and the new website is sponsored by Ryman Stationery, where Theo is Chairman.
