10 #1 Plan Your Program Go to page 21 of your IYOS Book or the Virtual Sale Planner at sell.trails-end.com Build your plan using the Budget Planner 1.Plan 2.Budget 3.Set Goals On the Virtual Sale Planner, you can fill in your number of boys, commission and activities per month with costs. The planner does the rest!

11 Crucially important for your Unit to have a Successful Sale. Scouting should be FUN and EXCITING, with lots of activities, camp, etc. Its Camping Its Activities Its Advancement Its Equipment Its what they want to do! #1 Plan Your Program

12 IDEAL YEAR OF SCOUTING Pack holds a Brainstorming session with their Scouts AND parents are given a survey to find out what the boys want to do. Pack Committee should whittle down the ideas from the brainstorming session – to discard ideas that arent feasible. Build a complete list of exciting program ideas to present to youth and Scouting families at next Pack Meeting. At next Pack Meeting, boys are given stickers (1 st, 2 nd, 3 rd ) to place next to, or vote for, their favorite program ideas. Pack Committee finalizes their Program, based on results of their youth vote / parent surveys. A complete Pack Budget is determined, based on new Program, equipment, etc. costs and then shared with parents. #1 Plan Your Program

13 IF Units do the IDEAL YEAR OF SCOUTING correctly, they will: Retain more of their members AND attract more new members Send more Scouts to all the different camping opportunities Train more volunteer leaders / have more parental support Spend less time fundraising and more time having FUN in a robust Scouting Program Fundraise less often, but more efficiently and even increase FOS Enjoy a full, fresh, and exciting Scouting Program – and have it be FREE to their Scouting families! #1 Plan Your Program

29 Second Hour of Training First Time Kernels

30 Terms and Words We Use Add On Fill It Up Show N Sell Returns Trails End Dragon Wagon Take Order Page 7 – 8 in your Leader Guidebook

31 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 – take order sales typically start immediately after kickoff. 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.

32 Show N 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

33 Show N Sell Last year, units that participated in Show & Sell sold 22% more popcorn that those units who did not participate in Show & Sell! 22% more than 2011 sales

34 Show N Sell More 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 / 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.
