As you and your troop participate in the 2016 Girl Scout Cookie Program, here are four selling tips from Troop 634 to increase your cookie earnings!
1. During the sale, wear a lanyard around your neck with pictures of the cookies on it. People will see it and ask if you are selling cookies.
2. DO WALKABOUTS! “I go door-to-door in my neighborhood with my mom,” says Sierra of Troop 634. “We still pull a wagon with the cookies in it! I sell 100-200 boxes this way and people love that we still use this tactic.”
3. At booths, make a sign that says “Cookies, $4 per box” and “5 boxes for $20.” People think that 5 for $20 is a great deal, when in reality, it’s the same price.
4. UPSELL! If a customer is buying three boxes of cookies and paying with a $20 bill, say “Would you like to buy two more and make it an even $20?” You’ll be surprised how often this works!
Remember to have fun! This is a great opportunity for girls to become leaders and prepare for bright futures! Access fun cookie resources here!
