Online Marketing for Girls!

Digital CookieDigital Cookie 3.0!
The Cookie Program’s Digital Cookie platform is returning for the 3rd year and promises to continue to enhance Girl Scouts’ experience with the Cookie Program. The Digital Cookie platform allows today’s girls–digital natives–to build skills they’ll need to be leaders in today’s high-tech world.

For girls/families, getting started with the Digital Cookie platform is as easy as 1,2,3,4!

  1. 1. Register for the Digital Cookie Program: Parents/guardians should be on the lookout for the Digital Cookie registration email after December 19, 2016. The email will come from email@email.girlscouts.org. *
  2. 2. Set up the Girl Scouts’ site: In just a few minutes, girls can set up a sales goal, share her cookie story and upload a fun picture or video. The site is then ready to be reviewed and published...done!
  3. 3. Invite customers: Girls can import customer contact information from an email address book or spreadsheet. If a Girl Scout participated in Digital Cookie last year, her customer information from last year will have rolled over to this year’s program. Girls can send ready-to-use emails inviting customers to support her and the troop. Families and girls ages 13 and older may share the link to their site with family and friends via social media.
  4. 4. Track your goal: Girls and parents/guardians can track the number of boxes sold and orders placed as well as sales by delivery type and cookie variety. Offline sales can also be entered so girls can see their total progress!
*Please check your junk/SPAM folder in case it got delivered there. If a family did not receive the registration email, they can use this form to request their girl be registered for this year’s Digital Cookie Platform. Please allow 72 hours for the girl to be registered and the welcome email to be sent.

For troop volunteers, the Digital Cookie platform provides a way to see how their Girl Scouts are using the platform so they can best support them and their families in the Cookie Program. See more about Troop Dashboard highlights on page 15 of the Cookie Program Troop Guide.
