Greeting Popcorn Leaders-

Thanks to everyone who come out and snagged more ‘Corn at our first Exchange Day of the 2k17 sale! We had 32 cars pick-up more product and our crack warehouse team (fueled on TimBits and caffeine) served everyone in about an hour. Good stuff!

Remember if you need additional product this week, check out the product swap board-it’s really taking off- and also remember to regularly check with your sellers about their personal inventory and redistribute where possible.

Thanks so much and have a great week in sales! No rain=great time to knock on doors!

Sales tip:

The power of “no”.

I heard a great one over the weekend: The parent of the seller rewarded their Scout when they reached a certain # of “no thanks” from prospective customers.

It was something like, “get 10 No’s and we’re going to get ice cream.”

Like any form of sales, it takes no’s to get yes’s. This idea resulted in the Scout knocking on more doors and selling more per hour than his average from past sales. And he got ice cream. Feel free to steal this. Genius.

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.
