A Scout is encouraged to earn his or her own way. This can be done through the popcorn sale experience. There are a number of sales methods and techniques as 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 is a combination of the Show and Sell and Take Order methods. The Scout takes the person's order using the Take Order Method and then 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
