Online sales cut cookie cycle in half

19 Feb
Cookies online

Little Brownie and the Girl Scouts even provide Cookie Locators (database/map) and Cookie Alerts (RSS feed). There's an iPhone app for cookie lovers on the go.

Attention all cyber scouts and high school boosters, it’s time to start selling online. Avoid trudging street-to-street past the junkmail receptacles (those boxes on a pole that the U.S. Postal Service still uses).

Little Brownie and the Girl Scouts even provide Cookie Locators (database/map) and Cookie Alerts (RSS feed). There’s an iPhone app for cookie lovers on the go. High school boosters and drive ticket salespersons  move their product online, as well. A PayPal purchase or donate button makes things easy.

This will only eliminate one half of the cycle. Delivery (of your cookies, kettlecorn or drive tickets) will still be delivered by U.S. Postal or a cheerful scout or student. But look at all the fuel and shoe leather saved by pitching online.
