A WINCHESTER business has been boosted by a former BBC ‘Dragon’.

Audio visual company Soundbite Productions saw a huge increase in web traffic and Twitter followers after business mogul Theo Paphitis, a former star of BBC2’s Dragons Den, re-tweeted a message from Soundbite boss Stephen Lucas last Sunday.

It was part of Mr Paphitis’ weekly ‘Small Business Sunday’ event where he encourages businesses to contact him and re-tweets six messages to his 326,000 followers.

Mr Lucas said: “We are a small business and I still work from home but with the power of the internet, and help from an entrepreneur like Theo it is enabling me to make a big impact.”
