What we know…..
Experience tells us…
• Units that have sales goals sell more cards
• Youth and parents that know their sales are going to
pay for more program, are more motivated to sell
• Some Scouts see no benefit of selling cards. (i.e..
ISA, rewards)
• Majority of returns are from Scouts who sold at
Show and Sells but did not sell on their own.
• Less and less door to door sales are happening, but
remain the highest sales volume per hour
• Scouts don’t see or SELL the benefit of the cards
