Business is booming since I joined Twitter!

Sorry my 2nd blog has been a long time coming but I've been so busy with work, home schooling my son and helping with my Granddaughter's child care.
Anyway, I'm going to mention my friend Nici from again! We were at the same school together 30 years ago!, although not in the same circle.We came across each other again on Facebook a couple of years ago when we realized we both had small businesses.
Nici kept encouraging me to join Twitter but after having a look at the 'social network site' several times I decided I couldn't make head nor tail of it!! With a bit more persuading though, in late November 2011, I thought I'd have a go at working this tweeting lark out!!.....and haven't looked back since!!
Within in a week I had my first 100 followers and am now fast approaching 2700!

Twitter is a great social network site for Small Businesses to advertize what they do and to let everyone know what they're about and what they're upto! You get up to date feedback from your followers and small businesses can bounce ideas off each other, as well as being really supporting to one another!

Not long after joining twitter I discovered mums like 'UK Hand Made' (check out Nici's site by the way!!, Awesome UK Hand Made goodies on there)  so I decided to add the Nanny Murray's Hand Knitted Animal Slippers range! They have been selling like hot cakes!
Then Mums and Me @mumsandme approached me on Twitter and said they had a stand at The Baby Show from the 24th-26th of February and were going to be doing hourly giveaways. They said they loved Nanny Murray's Piggy Slippers and would I be interested in taking part! To which I said yes, of course! So if your visiting the Baby Show be sure to visit the Mums and Me's stand on L10 for your chance to win! I'll be there on the 25th

I'm also currently running an offer on @minimunckinsmarket 's brand new daily deals website for mum's  where the lovely Nici and a few other Mumpreneurs have offers too. You really must have a look!

On the website front, I've recently added a premature baby wear range too, as mums were telling me how difficult it is to find clothes for prem babes...these teeny tiny sleep suits are my favourite!!

We have also added the Ruby and Ginger range! The Handbag insert has been recommended by Dannii Minogue herself in her new book, My Style!

Last but not least, I have added the 'Yummy Mummy' handbag & matching purses range! Here's the Ava Handbag:

Ava is a medium sized, stylish tote that is perfect for the woman who’s dashing out with the kids, headed to the office or simply a day shopping or with friends. It has a unique interior with all those great pockets and clips and it’s waterproof inside and out.
Included in the Ava Bag:
  • 1 Clear internal bags with hand strap
  • 1 Matching Clutchbag with hand strap
  • 2 Water bottle holder
  • 2 Key clips
  • Phone holder
  • Pen holder
*If using as a baby changing bag we recommend you buy the My Buggy Buddy on our accessories page
Interior colour of the bags are Blue or Pink - the colour maybe a different shade to the colour shown on the website.

Well I think that's enough rambling on for one afternoon! Fancy following me for offers, giveaways, competitions or quite simply a chat then you can find me @lullabybabygift on Twitter!
