I was one of 6 chosen for Small Business Sunday #SBS by Theo Paphitis on the 9th August 2015.
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 counts.
For the ladies #QueenOf day takes place every Thursday and for the gents #KingOf day takes place every Tuesday 9am - 9pm. Tweet Andy Quinn of Aqua Design Group about your business using the relevant hash tags, the best two get a RT from both Twitter accounts (approx. 16k followers), custom badge, introduction to past winners and place on upcoming website.
For supporters of both competitions entrants and the competition itself there is also a chance to be an #OrderOfFabulous winner which results a different badge being issued and a days promotion from both Twitter accounts (Mondays #QueenOf #OrderOfFabulous promotion day and Wednesdays #KingOf #OrderOfFabulous promotion day).
The goal is to have annual networking events along with regional ambassadors that hold events for #QueenOf & #KingOf winners in their area.
A weekly Twitter competition for businesses called BrightPig’s Business Of The Week. Each week BrightPigSEO pick two winners!
At 5pm on a Friday we will announce the two winners and award each winner with the BrightPig Business Of The Week badge!
This is a fantastic opportunity to win an award for your business and benefit from the extra publicity you will get as a result of being a #BrightPigWINNER.
Marketme.co.uk launched the Twitter #SmartSocial Award in May 2012 as part of a drive to help micro and SME businesses. Each Sunday morning between 9 – 12 companies Tweet to us on Twitter ‘how they use Social Media in their business’ and we run through the entries to find out the best and most innovative use of social media to award a business the #SmartSocial Award. #SmartSocial hashtag is now recognised on Twitter and is used for whenever a company wants a reTweet from us and of course, every Sunday morning to enter for the award!
