Rebecca Winter from RawXclusive is one of the designers that sold her prints and home accessories through the Hidden Art E-Shop.
She also is a winner of the Theo Paphitis #SBS (small business sunday) Award. Small Business Sunday, shortened to the hashtag (#SBS) on Twitter, was created by Theo Paphitis in October 2010. Theo is best known for his star role in TV’s Dragons’ Den. Each Sunday 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 count.
Each week Theo reviews and chooses his favourite lucky six who are then re-tweeted. As he has over 230,000 followers, this provides a massive boost to the chosen lucky businesses.
The benefits range from increased Twitter followers, to positive media publicity and crucially for many, increased sales! Her series of handpulled artist prints are all individually signed and are the centre of her collection.
An event was organised on the 30th March where all Award Winners met Theo Papitis in person. All were also presented with a certificate and got individual photos taken.
Rebecca says about the Award: “If you win it is a great publicity tool and you get to be apart of a growing online community of Small Businesses”
