Basingstoke, United Kingdom (2nd February, 2012) – Right Bag, a leading online provider of stylish ladies’ tech bags, have been awarded the Small Business Sunday award by Dragons’ Den star and respected entrepreneur, Theo Paphitis.
The weekly Twitter Small Business Sunday competition was launched in October 2010, and invites small businesses to Tweet Theo between 5pm and 7:30pm. Once Theo has reviewed all entries, he chooses six which impress him most and Retweets them to his 200,000 followers. As this is only the second time Right Bag’s founder, Sarah Evans, has entered the competition, she received a fantastic surprise when Theo selected her company to Retweet.
Since then, over 200 people have responded, either through Retweeting Right Bag’s name or sending messages of congratulations. Right Bag now has over 1000 followers on its Twitter account, which is an increase of 140 people. On the night of the competition, Right Bag’s site received 600% more hits, and still received 300% more on the Monday.
Sarah Evans commented: “I feel truly honoured to win the Small Business Sunday Award, as we are still a very young company. It’s an amazing feeling that someone who has been in business for so long, with such great success, is so impressed with your brand, products and website that they tell over 200,000 of their faithful followers about it. Sometimes, it’s hard working for yourself, and you can start questioning whether you are going in the right direction. Something like this just confirms that you are, and focuses you to keep striving forward.”
