The 2014-2015 Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways cookie sale program is fast approaching! Many service units are busy getting troop leaders trained on the upcoming sale, and planning cookie rallies to get girls and parents and the community excited about the sale. And it is going to be amazing!
This year there is something new too! Digital cookie. Have you heard about it yet?
Here are three things you may not know yet about digital cookie:
In addition to helping girls build the 5 skills of the traditional Girl Scout Cookie Program – goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics – Digital Cookie will teach emarketing, online commerce, website maintenance, digital order taking and shipping – all vital activities for modern business and modern life!
With Digital Cookie, like in traditional sales, the Girls initiate the ask and will market their online cookie business by inviting customers via email to visit their personalized cookie websites, where consumers can order cookies from the comfort of their living room. Customers can pay for them online and get them shipped directly to their homes.
Girls not participating in Digital Cookie may still call and send email messages to alert friends and family to product sales, and they can accept customer commitments via email or telephone.
