Popcorn

A Scout is encouraged to earn his or her own way. This can be done through the popcorn sale experience. There are several sales methods and techniques Scout can use to be successful and reach any goal he or she sets. The popcorn sale is not about selling popcorn; it is about promoting Scouting and encouraging community support for local Scouting.
 
Sale Methods and Techniques
Show and Sell
This sales technique involves setting up a product display at a business or storefront in high-traffic areas. The Scouts then ask those who pass through the area if they would like to support local Scouting by purchasing popcorn.

Take Orders
This sales technique involves taking the “Take Order Form” to family members, neighbors, church, and other locations and asking customers to place an order of popcorn.

Show and Deliver
This sales technique combines the Show and Sell and Take Order methods. The Scout takes the person's order using the Take Order Method and immediately delivers the product to the customer and collects payment, all in one visit.

Online Sales
This sales technique utilizes e-mail, social media, and websites to sell popcorn to those that are not local. A Scout, along with his family, sets up an account at www.campmasters.org

 

Online Sales 
Online sales are strong! Thank you to the units that have embraced and are taking advantage of online sales. This is an easy, no-risk popcorn sales method. There is no product inventory to manage, no product to deliver, and no money to collect. As a reminder, units receive 40% of all online sales. 


Recognitions, Drawings, and Incentives
Returning for the 3rd year - the Online Popcorn Sales Promotion and Incentive! 
Beginning on Monday, September 26, 2022, there will be a weekly drawing for Scouts that have online sales posted in the Campmasters Popcorn System within the previous seven days. To qualify for an entry in the drawing, Scouts must have an individual customer minimum purchase of $35.00. Scouts with multiple $35+ customers will be entered in the drawing multiple times.
