How to Approach CustomersWant to close sales? Take the following approach when speaking to a potential customer… Remember, Scouts are helpful, kind, and courteous! “Hi, my name is _____ and I’m a cub scout with Pack 86. I’m selling popcorn so I can camp and pay for my scouting program. I have a goal of $600. You can help me reach my goal by trying some of my popcorn! Will you help me?” More effective than asking, “Want to buy some popcorn?” don’t you think?
