Take Order Show-n-Deliver Show-n-Sell Sell at Work Sell Online Five Proven Methods
Take Order Scouts use an order form (in the family guide) to go door-to-door or sell to family and friends. Establish your dates – DBC Pre-sale starts August 12. Determine sales territory Create a Blitz Day to have Dens sell as a group activity Have parent(s) take an order form to work REMEMBER! Two out of three people will buy when asked, but less than 20% of households have been contacted.
Show & Deliver Make the Sale and the Delivery in one stop! Scouts check out product and take it door-to-door Very effective sale method Customers can view the product right then Parents and Scouts can easily see how much they need to sell No return trip required!
Show & Sell Make arrangements for Scouts to set up in front of stores to sell. Ask store manager for permission several weeks in advance Assign Scouts (2-3) and parents in two hour blocks DO NOT open up microwave boxes Divide sales equally among Scouts who participate Use leftover product to fulfill take order needs Apply donations received towards your military sales
Show & Sell Other Tips for Success: Do not use a table or chairs. Tables are barriers between you and the consumer. Hand out flyers that tell people about your Unit and what activities you do, how you help the community, etc. Tape pieces of paper to each product that has a phone number / email so they can buy more when they run out DONT ask for donations! People will give those to you anyway, and asking for them will decrease your sales Stack boxes to display product. Hang up posters/pictures of your boys doing Scouting activities and helping the community.

3 $200 1 2 $100 $300 I work at least two booths and I should get about $150.00 each time I work at least 2 hours. I signed up for the following: ____________ & ___________ By talking to my family & friends AND with my parents talking to their friends at work I should get at least the amount. But I have to ask in order to get the sale. By going around in my neighborhood & knocking on doors I should be able to get this amount. BUT I need my parents help as I know even as an older scout its unsafe for me to sell by myself. $600 This is only the start! Imagine what happens when I keep selling? I could pay for my own Summer Camp, Get a new Scout Shirt… the list is endless! A Scouts Plan to $600 and BEYOND!
