Taunton based company Timeforge has received a business boost from Retail Entrepreneur Theo Paphitis. Business owner, Suzi Ratcliffe, took the opportunity to tweet Theo about her company, which specialises in outsourced business support, during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was delighted to be one of six winners across the UK to gain a retweet by Theo to his near half a million Twitter followers. The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010, now has over 3,000 #SBS winners and supports small businesses in the UK.
The business and retail entrepreneur re‐tweeted Timeforge’s message to his almost 500,000 followers and the profile of the business has been added onto the #SBS website, www.theopaphitissbs.com, (exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners only). As a result, Timeforge has seen a strong uptake in interest in the business, additional social media followers, and even a number of new enquiries.
Suzi said, “Timeforge is 10 years old this year and over the past decade we have seen our business grow naturally from strength to strength. We knew that to continue our expansion we needed to think on a wider scale and so took the initiative to get involved with Theo’s Small Business Sunday concept”, she added “I am so glad that we did, it’s really given the whole team a boost, helped put our Taunton based business on a UK wide map, and given us the confidence to continue with our expansion plans as we near the end of the lockdown. Having validation from someone of Theo’s reputation is a huge compliment”
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 Timeforge every success.”
