Popcorn Updates

Take Order Sales:

  • This is a reminder for you to begin selling popcorn door to door and to family and friends, if you haven't already done so, using your Take Order forms.

There are four things that I want to mention in regard to selling online:

  • There is no pressure to sell online, it is your choice. Over the weekend, I had the chance to fully explore the online sales site and realized that the prices online are far higher than in previous years.

  • Secondly, if you do want to sell to family and friends online, the best method might be to tell them that it is a donation to scouting that comes with a bag of popcorn.

  • Thirdly, if you do want to sell online but don't want to sell to family and friends, consider sending out the link to your scout's page via email to addresses of local businesses.  

  • Lastly, I heard a great tip for selling popcorn online: record a video of your scout asking for folks to buy popcorn to support the scouts. Then, upload it to the online site or attach it to an email with the link to their page.

Order Forms:

  • Popcorn order forms and filled out Prize sheets are due to your den leaders by the 25th of October.

  • Money collected from your order form customers will be due on November 30th

Yours In Selling Popcorn,
