My business partner Jon Lowe ( pictured left ) happens to be a superstar at social media. One of his first jobs for Big Vinyl Art was to create a Twitter prescence.
Within the first two weeks of the launch of our new Twitter account, Jon targeted Theo Paphitis's Small Business Sunday scheme. The purpose was to get Theo's attention with a single attention grabbing and perfectly timed tweet. Each week, literally 1000's of people promote their business to Theo, and each week he personally chooses 6 winners. We won this accolade on our second attempt, with a combination of Jon's words and my image, ironically of a celebrity blogger called Ricky Hall.
You can find out lots more about the awards by researching #SBS or visiting out page on Theo's website at http://www.theopaphitissbs.com/profile/1156/Gary-Faulkner---Big-Vinyl-Art
Since winning the award we have met Theo and had the opportunity to present him with a Big Vinyl Art portrait of himself. We are now part of the exclusive #SBS winners circle and have been interviewed on BBC Mersyside, as well as Red Shift Radio in Crewe who are fellow winners.
