Boost For Local Photographer From Former 'Dragon'
Theo Paphitis selects Kelly Reeves for 'retweet' on Small Business Sunday
Chiswick photographer Kelly Reeves has been given a major boost for her photography business following recognition by Theo Paphitis, formerly of the BBC show Dragons Den.
The retail entrepreneur (chairman of Ryman) set up a business initiative called Small Business Sundays, where he invites small businesses to tweet him their details during a particular time slot. He then selects a number of them and retweets their details on his own account. As he has nearly half a million followers, it is a national boost for the smaller businesses whose details reach a wide audiance.
Kelly, who is well known in Chiswick for her work on Super Saturday of Sport, was amongst the six chosen from over 1,000 small business hopefuls who recently tweeted Theo during the selected time slot. Her business captured his attention and Theo then re -tweeted Kelly's message, including her website www.kellyreevesphotography.co.uk to his 450,000 plus followers.
As a result social media followers, interaction and business enquiries have all increased. Kelly will also be invited to a winner's event where she will get to meet Theo in person.
She commented: "To have Theo identify my business as being worthy of a small business award, recognising my passion as well as hard work, is totally amazing. Not everyone can say they have the Theo Paphitis seal of approval! ”
Kelly is currently official photographer to Sebastien Foucan, James Bond movie villain and pioneer of the style of 'free running' - who recently opened a Freerunning Academy at the Oxygen Freejumping site in Acton.
