Cookie Sales Go Digital!

January 6, 2015

By Krista Park, Communications & PR Director

This year, the largest girl-led business in the world is getting BIGGER! Digital Cookie has arrived! With this exciting new expansion of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls will now be able to sell cookies in a virtual space.

Digital Cookie elevates all elements of the Girl Scout Cookie Program into the digital sphere, expanding the reach of a girl’s cookie business, enhancing her learning experience, and maintaining her personal connection with customers. Girls will learn about the world of e-commerce and digital money management while gaining the same values, ideals, and core skills that the traditional face-to-face program offers.

Utilizing the online COCO Cookie Command Center, Girl Scouts can create a customized, web-based business center to set and track goals, manage cookie activities online, and accept orders through the new COCOdirect platform. Girls will be able to send an eCard to friends and family that includes a secure link for online orders, making it easier than ever to be a part of the world’s largest girl-led business.

For sales made through COCOdirect, there’s NO money collection and NO hand delivery! Customers who buy cookies online will be able to have their order processed, paid for, and confirmed right in front of their eyes. They will be able to choose form a variety of packaging sizes including an eight-pack sampler, a half dozen, or a dozen of any one variety. And for a limited time only, customers will be able to order this year’s new Gluten-free Trios Cookie.

The best part, Digital Cookie is easy for girls to use. COCO is a great tool to support Girl Scouts and their leadership development. Encourage your Girl Scout to set up an account in COCO this year. She’ll be excited to set her goals, track her progress, and cheer along her troop online. Take a tour of COCO with your Girl Scout today!

And for those girls and troops on-the-go, download the COCOmobile app to use COCOdirect on your smartphone or tablet. Send e-cards and check orders from anywhere this cookie season!

Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines’ 2015 Cookie Sale program kicks off on Saturday, January 17 and runs through Sunday, March 1. Visit our Cookies page to learn more about this year’s sale.

Join the Business of Selling Awesomeness!

Ask any girl what she loves about being a Girl Scout and selling cookies makes the list every time, hands down. Girls love counting the boxes, giving people their change, and seeing their customers’ excitement when they get their cookies. And if that’s not enough to get you motivated, here’s more on why you don’t want to miss out on Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines 2015 Girl Scout Cookie Sale!

It’s about way more than selling cookies.

Actually, each box of cookies is packed with a lifetime supply of learning. Selling cookies teaches girls goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics – aspects essential to leadership, to success, and to life. Our Girl Scout Cookie sale is a financial literacy program and is helping girls build confidence. When a Girl Scout sells cookies, she is learning she can be and do anything she sets her mind to!

Each box is packed with a different adventure.

Earning money to achieve goals is what cookie season is all about! Cookie sale proceeds help troops fund everything from patches, meeting supplies, local activities, service projects, and year-end activities. Girls love deciding with their troop how they’ll use their cookie money each season. Proceeds help their next adventure – their next dream – come true.

Girl Scout Cookies bring a sweet taste of home to our military.

This year we are celebrating 10 amazing years of Operation Cookie Drop, a council-wide community service project which has donated nearly 700,000 boxes of cookies to our deployed military service personnel. Having a donation jar for spare change at your booth is an easy way to support this program and girls can earn a special anniversary patch for participating. In celebration of our tenth anniversary, we hope to send 100,000 boxes to troops this year. Help make this mission possible!

Patches, troop trips, and polar bears… Oh My!

Girl Scouts can earn these rewards and recognitions and more in the 2015 Cookie Sale. Well, not a real polar bear of course, but a pretty cute stuff animal. Or perhaps they’ll get a chance to see a real polar bear in during a troop trip to the NC Zoo in Asheboro paid for by cookie proceeds! In addition, Girl Scouts who sell 500 boxes can choose from Superstar Destinations and earn admission tickets to amusement and water parks, gift cards to favorite restaurants, or “Cookie Dough” which can be used to pay for a week at summer camp.

They’re not only tasty. Selling Girl Scout Cookies is FUN!

From setting goals to decorating a wagon or a troop parent’s car for Walkabout Week, preparing and participating in the Cookie Sale is fun! Girls love decorating signs, making posters and other promotional items for the sale. This year’s Bling Your Booth contest has gone national and boasts a $500 cash prize. And taking some time to enjoy a cookie or two during the sale is always fun. Milk and Girl Scout cookies makes everyone smile.

Follow the fun and join the Girl Scout cookie experience today. Visit our Cookies page to learn more. And for all those experienced sellers out there, be sure to check out our new cookie resources and let us know what your favorite thing is about the Girl Scout Cookie Sale program!
