Adventure tour operator The Adventure Creators has received a business boost from retail entrepreneur Theo Paphitis.
Last week, CEO Penny Walker, tweeted Theo about her business during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was one of six weekly winners to gain a retweet by Theo to his 500,000 Twitter followers. The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010 to support small businesses, now has over 2200 #SBS winners.
As a result of Theo’s re‐tweet, @adventurecrtrs has gained hundreds of new followers and a jump in interest in their tailor made adventure trips to the Pyrenees. They are also profiled on the #SBS website that is exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.
Penny Walker said, “We’re a small business in a highly competitive market and it’s tough trying to raise our profile, so it’s fantastic to have Theo’s support in this way. We very much appreciate his recognition of our hard work and also how he’s giving us the opportunity to spread the word about what we do to his following.”
Small business champion and Ryman Stationery, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue Chairman, Theo Paphitis, said: “We are thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK. My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings. The website will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish The Adventure Creators every success.”
