Laois Business fires up Dragon
Laois-based WallStickersForKids.ie has become one of the latest small businesses to become one of Theo Paphitis’s #SBS winners
In March 2015, Amanda Holohan, owner of WallStickersForKids.ie tweeted Theo Paphitis during ‘Small Business Sunday’, an initiative set up by the Dragon’s Den star that runs weekly. Each week Theo hand picks his winners where he then retweets you to his nearly half a million twitter followers.
As a result of the tweet, WallStickersForKids.ie saw an instant boost in Twitter followers and enquiries about their range of fantastic wall stickers, some of which are manufactured here in Ireland. The brand is also profiled on www.theopaphitissbs.com, a bonus that is exclusive to Small Business Sunday winners.
Amanda Holohan said, “It’s amazing to have the support of a small business champion like Theo, which I hope can help raise our profile nationally. Being part of SBS is brilliant opportunity and I was absolutely thrilled meeting Theo at the SBS winners event in February”.
Champion of small businesses, Theo Paphitis created Small Business Sunday, shortened to the hashtag #SBS on Twitter in 2010. Every Sunday between 5pm and 7:30pm small business are invited to tweet the multimillion businessman (@theopaphitis) with a description of their business, including the all-important hashtag #SBS. All the tweets are reviewed by Theo and he chooses his six favourite to retweet on Monday at 8pm, making them a #SBS winner.
WallStickersForKids.ie is looking forward to launching their new range of stickers in the coming months.
