Selling Trail's End Popcorn Online
Dear Scout Leader,
Selling Trails End popcorn is a great way to fund your entire Scouting year by getting your Pack, Troop, or Crew working together on one annual fundraiser.
Better yet, you can sell Trail’s End popcorn online, or take military donations to send popcorn to US troops overseas, and never have to touch any popcorn! Every online order or military donation you receive gets popcorn moving to its expected destination without you having to deliver it yourself! Think about the time that will save!
Best of all, an average online sale or military donation is generally significantly higher than the average face to face sale, which translate into higher commissions for your unit. Each also produces the same great return to Scouting (70%).
With no inventory, no distribution, no time-consuming deliveries, and larger average sales per customer, which lead to higher commissions per sale – all these advantages make selling online and taking military donations two of the easiest ways to grow your sale and save you valuable time and energy.
Don't forget: The average online consumer order is $48, versus an average of $15.95 for a Show & Sell sale, and $19.04 for a Take Order sale, which are both made face to face. More profit for less work significantly increases your unit sale results.
