Sam's Club Debuts #SmallBizHelp Campaign


BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Sam's Club, the membership warehouse division of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., is launching #SmallBizHelp, an interactive social campaign that supports America's small-business owners by offering expert advice on starting and running a business. Small-business owners can now submit questions to Sam's Club Facebook page and Twitter @SamsClub using #SmallBizHelp.

"Small-business owners often lack a network of experts to tap as they navigate day-to-day business issues," stated Seong Ohm, senior vice president of merchandise business services for Sam's Club. "At Sam's Club, we provide smart solutions by listening to our members. The #SmallBizHelp program extends a new direct line of communication between time-starved business owners and trusted resources when issues arise that are beyond their expertise."

American small-business owners' chief operational concerns align with six categories, based on feedback from Sam's Club Business members: accounting and tax preparation, identity protection, digital marketing, payments processing, human resources and business lending. In collaboration with industry experts, Sam's Club will respond to #SmallBizHelp questions with solutions, tips and resources for saving time and money on managing a business, the company said

Through September, Sam's Club will post #DidYouKnow small-business facts on social media and a series of tip-based articles accessible at

Sam's Club is also enlisting the help of business members to deliver the message of new business benefits. Local pizzeria owners in 14 cities, including Austin, Texas; Nashville, Tenn.; and Chicago will deliver a special lunch in Sam's Club-branded pizza boxes to select small-business advocates and entrepreneurial incubators.
