Theeeeeeeey're BACK!!

Cookie Season is upon us yet again, and I don't know about you, but I'm more pumped than ever!

Pre-orders run until Monday, January 25th. They will be delivered on February 13th, and Site Sales run through March 14.

Not sure where to start? Need some tips? Don't worry, I've got your back. :)

There are customers waiting for you, all you have to do is ask!
Not sure who to ask? Try:

Your Doctor's/Dentist's office
Friends (especially if you're in high school, because trust me, everyone loves Girl Scout Cookies)
Your parents' co-workers
Relatives (give your long lost aunt a call! And what grandparent can resist their granddaughter asking if they'd like to buy some cookies??)

Shy? Need some help asking? Try these:
"Hi my name is ______ (first name only) and I was wondering if you would like to order some Girl Scout Cookies."
"Hi, would you like to buy some Girl Scout Cookies to help support the girls in your community?" "Good morning/afternoon/evening, my name is ________. Would you like to order some delicious Girl Scout Cookies?"
Mix it up and be creative! Practice with your troop and come up with some good ideas! :)

Just remember to always have a buddy and an adult with you when you go door to door.

Set a goal, either for yourself or with your troop. If you reach that goal, set another one!!

Good luck, and happy cookie selling!!
