Cookie video contest: Want to buy some cookies?

Submitted by Melinda

Isabelle is crazy excited about her first year selling cookies! Even though she’s only 6, she went door-to-door the first day for four hours until she sold out. After a refill from the troop, she went out the next two days again until she was sold out once more. This time we had to wait until a shipment arrived on Friday. So, she was taking orders to deliver on Friday and making plans for selling all weekend. The best part is her attitude. She’s so sweet about it. Just skips right up, and with a big smile says, “Hi, I’m Isabelle. Would you like to buy some cookies?” And it’s super funny anytime the response is “I’m sorry, I don’t have any cash.” To which she replies, “That’s ok. We take credit cards.” lol Then, even if they say “No.” she just smiles and says, “Ok. Have a great day!” and skips away. It’s so precious.

Fynn’s Cookie Story

This is Fynn’s first year as a Daisy, she is in troop 65794.  Her first video was done to get people excited about GS Cookie season.  Going forward we made videos to introduce Digital Cookie, to help her get the Bronco Cookie Badge, and to encourage sales.  Now people send requests for new videos.

Gracynn’s Cookie Video

Submitted by Nina Duncan

This year, my daughter Gracynn (7), decided she wanted to increase her goal to 500. We talked a lot about how she would need to work hard to reach her goal, and we discussed ways to help her reach her goal. Being a firm believer that this is Gracynn’s cookie business,  I explained to her that if she wanted to sell her cookies on social media,  that we would need to come up with a way so that she’s doing the asking, and not me.  That’s when she said,  “it’s too bad I can’t talk to them. ”

That lead to the idea of making a video.  Gracynn and I discussed what would be important to say to her customers, and that’s how we came up with a script. After recording,  we played around with subtitles and stickers, just to make her video more fun.  By the time her video was complete,  Gracynn was confident and proud of her hard work,  and super excited to sell cookies. We still have a month to go,  and Gracynn is over half way to her goal!
