Rule #1 in business: know your customer!
So when Girl Scout Danielle Lei needed a good place to sell cookies, she came up with a plan that was GUARANTEED to spark up some sales!
She set up shop outside of a weed dispensary!
Customers of the Green Cross in San Francisco were greeted by this cutie on their way out of the store! After purchasing their pot, they also got to buy some Thin Mints, Tagalongs and Samoas!
Yup, that’s GENIUS!
So how’s business??
Danielle and her mom Carol sold out of cookies in 45 minutes!
She even had to call for reinforcements just to keep sales going!
In total, they sold 117 boxes in under two hours outside of the cannabis clinic, which is 37 MORE than what she sold outside of a busy grocery store the next day.
Some might say having a 13-year-old selling to drug users sends a bad message, but Carol disagrees. She thinks her daughter is learning a valuable lesson in people skills as well as business!
"They learn that they’re not drugged out. Many have serious needs, and are just a little different.”
"And they get very hungry after!”
And THAT’S called knowing your customer!
Good luck out there, Danielle!
