Jacqueline Gold #WOW Women in Business Winner

Posted by on May 12, 2018 in Latest News | 0 comments

THIS week I was thrilled to be selected as one of Jacqueline Gold’s weekly business award, Women on Wednesday, or #WOW.  Jacqueline Gold CBE is the CEO of Ann Summers and is one of UK’s leading business women.

Jacqueline runs a Twitter campaign to support female entrepreneurs with #WOW, which takes place every Wednesday, through through her Twitter page @jacqueline_Gold.  Each week Jacqueline encourages female business owners to Tweet her using the #WOW hash tag along with their business overview. Three top entries for that week are chosen by Jacqueline and she re-tweets and profiles, sharing details of the businesses with her existing WOW network and 57,000 plus followers.

Almost every week, for the past few years, I’ve submitted my entry to Jacqueline, so I was over the moon to be chosen this week. My Twitter feed @appletonbabym went crazy with many posts of congratulations, whilst gaining more followers. It was a real business confidence boost. As a sole trader it can feel quite lonely to keep striving on promoting my business and classes, so to have the recognition and endorsement from Jacqueline, who I admire immensely, was a great feeling.

Twitter is a great promotional platform and it really helps me promote my business within the area and targeting directly at new parents and those people who may know someone who is expecting.
