Luxury Dog Hampers receives boost from Dragons Den star Theo Paphitis
Small business, Luxury Dog Hampers recently won recognition from Dragons Den star Theo Paphitis in his weekly Small Business Sunday (SBS) Twitter competition.
Last week I tweeted Theo about my business during his weekly Twitter competition for a chance to be one of his 6 weekly winners chosen for the hard work they put into their small business.
Here’s the winning Tweet sent to enter the SBS competition on Sunday 28th
I’m thrilled to have been chosen as thousands of people Tweet Theo to win each week. It means a lot that my business stood out to him and I was picked.
My business received hundreds of extra followers who wouldn’t have discovered me otherwise and being part of Theo’s community of winners makes me stand out from the crowd.
I had been trying to win SBS for 2 years since starting my business as I had won back in 2016 with my other business Suffolk Dog Services. It gave me so much confidence from winning back then that I made sure I entered each week to be in with a chance to win for Luxury Dog Hampers.
Theo retweeted to his following of over 490, 000 putting Luxury Dog Hampers in front of the eyes of many more people with just 1 tweet.
I have plans to scale up Luxury Dog Hampers to incorporate its own branded dog treats to sell in addition to the hampers.
I would love to be in a position where I can employ others who are as passionate about dogs as I am. It would be a dream to expand so my products are sold throughout the UK in large stores.
