Wagon Sales
The show and deliver method of selling is a combination of the show and sell and take order selling method. The Scouts take popcorn door-to-door to sell.
Recruiting During Show and Sell
The reason why show and sell method is so successful is because of a steady flow of customers. It also provides an excellent opportunity to recruit new Scouts.
