Terrific Tips from Top Girl Scout Cookie Sellers

Can you believe it is almost cookie time again? We are so excited about the 2015 Girl Scout Cookie Sale here at Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines and can’t wait to see what goals our girls will reach this year. To kick off the season and help girls get inspired to give their best this year, we talked to two of last year’s top sellers to get their advice on what it takes to be a super seller.

Xena G. from Wake County sold 4,750 boxes last year and increased her sales by 56% in one year! Xena’s advice to her fellow Girl Scouts is to remember to SMILE. It sounds simple, but her success is proven. “If you look happy, they will buy from you,” says Xena. She also suggests pairing up younger Girl Scouts with a more experienced cookie seller as a mentor at the cookie booths.

Taylor W. from Wake County sold 3,803 boxes last year and sold the most Operation Cookie Drop boxes last year. Taylor’s advice is to ask everyone to purchase boxes for our service members. Even people who don’t want cookies might be willing to purchase some for service members, so don’t hesitate to inform them about Operation Cookie Drop and just ask. Taylor echoes Xena’s great advice to smile and be happy and enthusiastic about selling. She promises that will help you sell more cookies.

Emerson F. from Pitt County sold 4,005 boxes last year. She may be only 7 years old, but she is fearless in her efforts to sell cookies and promote Operation Cookie Drop. Emerson suggests asking customers to donate their spare change for the donation program. In her experience, most will donate some change and even small amounts help. Another key to Emerson’s success is selling to local businesses, especially banks. She asked her mom to drive her and she would go in and turn on her charm, selling to both employees and customers of the business.

Way to go Xena, Taylor, and Emerson! We hope everyone is ready to put these terrific tips into practice and have an awesome 2015 sale and another successful Operation Cookie Drop. Good luck, Girl Scouts!

Treats and Trophies for Top-Selling Girl Scouts

June 17, 2014

By Kelly Griffin, Product Sales Director

Drum roll please….. We have a new record!  During the 2014 Girl Scout Cookie Sale, our top three sellers each sold at least 4,000 boxes of cookies.  Wow, Girl Scouts! Way to go!

2014Top_SellersGirl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines celebrated these top-selling Girl Scouts on Saturday, May 31, at Imagination Station in Wilson, NC.  Girls and their families gathered for a catered luncheon with council CEO Lisa Jones, and then enjoyed an afternoon of fun exploring the museum.

Xena G. from Cary, NC, placed first selling 4,750 boxes of cookies! Xena joined the Girl Scouts in 2006 and was our number two top seller in 2013.  In just one year, she increased her sales from 3,041 to 4,750 boxes; a 56% increase overall! She also led the council in the 2013 Fall Product Sale as our top two seller. Xena is a member of Girl Scout Cadette Troop #15 and is planning a trip to Australia and New Zealand in 2015 with the travel-based Girl Troop #7000.

Our Second Place seller is Girl Scout Brownie Emerson F. from Winterville, NC, with 4,005 boxes sold! She was the top seller in Pitt County during the 2013 sale and had her eye on being the top seller in the council for 2014. Once you meet Emerson, there’s no doubting her ability to reach a goal.  As her mother says, “She has no fear when it comes to selling cookies.” She is a future entrepreneur!

Trailing second place by only five boxes, Antonina Q. from Fayetteville, NC, is top seller number three.  Nina had an amazing increase during this year’s sale jumping to 4,000 boxes from 1,226 boxes in 2013; a 226% increase. What an amazing leap in sales!  Nina is a member of Girl Scout Troop #888 and has been involved with Girl Scouts since 2008.

Also honored at the event was Taylor W., top seller for Operation Cookie Drop.  Taylor sold the most for the council’s military support program of any Girl Scout this year at 733 boxes; an almost 100% increase in her sales for this program, and a 50% increase over last year’s record for Operation Cookie Drop. Needless to say we were blown away and wanted to honor her! And to add to her success, she placed fourth overall during this 2014 sale, with 3,803 boxes sold.

Congratulations to all of this year’s top sellers.  Way to go, Girl Scouts!
