EDINBURGH, England - July 14, 2014 - PRLog -- Theo re‐tweeted Julie’s message to his 435,000 followers and as a result, the business (http:/www.portfolio-oomph.com (http://www.portfolio-oomph.com)) has 200 or so more followers taking the brand to a wider audience. They are also profiled on a new website (http://www.theopaphitissbs.com) that is exclusive to Small Business Sunday winners.

Portfolio Oomph is an online hub that specialises in supporting students applying to art college. They provide mentoring, eBooks and eCourses, a resourceful website and face to face courses.

Julie said, “We’ve been in business for 2 years now and we’re growing in terms of sales and the number of students we’re assisting each year go to art college. It is great to have support from Theo because it’s been tough trying to raise our profile and Theo has recognised our hard work and helped spread the word about what we do to his following.”

Anyone looking for a re‐tweet from Theo should tweet him about their business on Sunday between 5 PM and 7.30 PM and include the hashtag #SBS. Theo has specific good business practice that he looks for in his winners from their Twitter profile and website. Six lucky businesses are re‐ tweeted every Monday at 8 PM and then invited to enter their profile on the new website. This is done free of charge and the new website is sponsored by Ryman Stationery, where Theo is Chairman.

There is also a business event that is held later in the year for all the #SBS winners with the opportunity to be presented with a certificate from Theo, network and attend business talks and presentations.
