If you have not yet set up the remainder of your show and sells remember a great strategy for the sale is not to be directly in front of one of our venders, but nearby. When a Vender becomes a partner with us one of the drivers for them is how can they bring additional business into their store. While we appreciate a vender that allows Scouts to sell at the store think of the positive effect we would have with that same vender if someone was shopping a few doors down and them having purchased a card decides to go to our partner.
One additional note on show and sells remember not to overload the venue with Scouts. In most locations two Scouts is probably fine and this increases the total sales for each. While more scouts may give you some additional coverage the law of diminishing returns will begin to come into play, and as always pay attention to Scout safety.
Be sure you are managing your inventory. If you have given cards out to your families keep in touch with them. Remember the cards are just like money and any cards not returned must be paid for. Ensure your parents understand that and you may save yourself headaches in the end.
