#SBS Small Business Sunday

#SBS is one of the leading small business networks in the UK with over 3,750 active members.

Each week, Theo Paphitis welcomes 6 small businesses who tweet, comment  or post an image to @TheoPaphitis describing their businesses to the #SBS community.


Theo says, “I admire people who have passion and energy. If you cannot bore your friends to death about your own small business then something is seriously wrong. I was struck by the number of business owners on Twitter who wanted to tell me about their new products and services. Small Business Sunday was born so that people have a specific time slot to tweet and can pitch their ‘sell’ directly to me. In 2022 I  also opened up #SBS to businesses on Instagram and have been blown away by the depth and quality of the entrants.”

#SBS Monthly Winner!

For the December #SBS Winner of the Month, we wanted to showcase an #SBS winner that has done incredible things since winning their award, and Bloom Baby Classes has done just that.
