Sales tip:

Start with your neighbors!

Generally speaking, door to door sales yield the most sales per hour. Think about it. How many people set off to Lowes, Walmart, JoAnn Fabrics, with the purpose of buying popcorn? Will they buy when they see a sharp dressed Scout who asks them to help pay for camp? You bet. Sometimes…

Now, take that same sharp dressed Scout and put him in front of your home. Send him to your neighbors. These folks see him going to school every day. They see him trick or treating and playing in his lawn. They know you. All of these factors suggest a probable sale.

Storefront sales are great and much needed. But, make sure your Scouts are starting with their neighbors.

Remember to check out the Swap Your Pop message board if you have additional product needs. Also, it might be worth taking a refresher in Inventory Management. Check out the Sales Guidebook. Point #4 is a deep dive into all things inventory.
