Small Business Sunday (#sbs) is constantly evolving.

Every Sunday Theo Paphitis holds a competition for Small Business Owners on Twitter, aptly named Small Business Sunday. Quite simply, 6 small businesses have the chance of a re-tweet to his 50k+ followers.
I was absolutely delighted to note that my entry for @SmarterCard was picked along with 5 other lucky businesses for this week’s competition. If you don’t know already, Smarter Card gives you access to local discounts, nationwide.
It isn’t possible for me to know the exact impact at this early stage, however I have already picked up an extra 20-30 followers and a couple of e-mails directly from businesses who would be interested in offering student discounts via the Smarter Card, which is obviously great news.
On that note, I’m going to end this post by saying a huge “thank-you” to Theo Paphits for picking the Smarter Card entry.
Update: The inaugural #SBS winners’ event took place on Friday 30th March, 2012, at Edgbaston County Cricket Ground. The event, hosted by Theo Paphitis, saw a huge turnout and was a great success. I didn’t get to go for long but I was fortunate enough to meet the man himself.
