Every Wednesday Jacqueline Gold runs a twitter campaign #WOW, Women On Wednesdays, which helps to inspire and celebrate women in business. Basically you tweet your business to her and if she likes it she then re-tweets it to her 39+ thousand followers.
You may not instantly know her name but if I mentioned Ann Summers you all know that right? What British person doesn't? Well she is the lady behind the brand and who has built up the impressive empire. She, much like Theo Paphitis, runs the twitter campaign to help small businesses although hers solely concentrates on female entrepreneurs. Her campaign #WOW started in June 2011 to help support us ladies with our developing businesses. Each week she chooses 3 businesses which she thinks stands out from the crowd, has strong brand values and has the potential to grow and succeed in their industry. She looks for quality products, well designed websites and entrepreneurs who appear to have a good business sense and who have thought about what the consumer wants and how to deliver that.
When, on the off chance, I sent the tweet on Wednesday I wasn't really expecting anything
so when my phone beeped later that afternoon and I saw that it was actually Jacqueline Gold
re-tweeting my business tweet to her followers I was amazed.
I feel very honoured that she has spotted my business and believes that I have the core values. it's always nice to be spotted by a truly successful entrepreneur who has made it themselves. Jacqueline also picks 3 winners from the year and takes them for a mentoring lunch, fingers crossed I'll make the grade as that would be amazing. To have a mentor like her would be a true inspiration.
Thank you Jacqueline for taking the time to look at my business and give your support.
I really do thoroughly appreciate it.
