A Northamptonshire‐based firm has received a business boost from TV Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis.

Susan Martin, owner of Vintage-Daisy, tweeted Theo last week about her business during Small Business Sunday, an initiative set up by Theo which runs weekly.

Theo retweeted Susan’s message to his 230,000 followers and as a result, Vintage-Daisy has gained a massive following on Twitter with increased web hits and sales.

They are also profiled on a new website which is exclusive to Small Business Sunday winners.

Susan said: “I only started the business just over a year ago and have tweeted Theo almost every Sunday since.

“I was so amazed to see that I had gained support from Theo with a retweet and can’t wait to see what the future will bring.”

Anyone looking for a retweet from Theo should tweet him about their business on Sunday between 5pm and 7.30pm and include the hashtag #SBS.

Six lucky businesses are retweeted every week 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.
