Girl Scouts of Colorado’s 2020 Fall Product Program is now underway, and there’s still plenty of time for you to get started! Fall Product Program is a great way for troops (both new and existing) to earn proceeds to use for Girl Scout activities throughout the year or to get one step closer to reaching their next goal. All troops receive 13% of their magazine orders as troop proceeds, plus $1/per item for nuts and chocolates sold.
GSCO Media Star and Girl Scout Cadette Alison from Troop 62816 in Thornton told us what she likes about this program:
How many years have you participated in Fall Product Program?
I have participated in Fall Product Program for seven years.
Do you like creating an avatar that looks like you? Do you record a message too?
I love creating an avatar that looks like me! Although I usually don’t record a message for my avatar, it’s still very fun!
What do you like about having an online storefront? Is it easy to connect with family, friends, and other customers? Is it fun to use?
The thing that I like about having an online storefront is that I can see what my achievements are, and they are turned into little medals and trophies, and other cool things! Using this online platform, it’s very easy to send emails to friends and family, and they include the link to my entire campaign. And, I think it’s fun to use because it’s interactive, modern, and inspiring.
What tips for success would you share with girls who are participating for the first time?
A tip for other girls is that: Check your online store, so you can see how much people have bought products online, so you can have an idea of how much you have left to sell before you reach your goal. And, another tip, is that you can ask people in person that you know, but you don’t have their email and they might buy products from you.
What nut or candy item(s) do your customers like best?
The products that my customers usually buy are Dulce Daisies and Peanut Butter Monkeys.
What has your troop done with Fall Product Program troop proceeds that you’ve earned?
With the proceeds, my troop usually uses the money to buy the badges that we complete.
What’s the coolest reward that you have earned?
The coolest reward that I’ve earned is to be a part of S’mores Club. If you participate in Fall Product Program, sell 15 Nuts or Candies, send 15 emails during the program, and sell 400 packages of cookies, during cookie season, you can be a part of the S’mores Club. You will earn a personalized patch, with your avatar in it, and very cool special prizes! For this year, if you do all of the requirements for S’mores Club, you get customized Converse Shoes and a specialized S’mores Club avatar patch. That’s pretty cool for me! Good luck with your Fall Product Program!
Thank you, Alison, for sharing your experience and tips with other Girl Scouts!
