How to Sell Vidalia Sweet Onions.

Each year the biggest objection we hear from Camp members about the Onion Fundraiser is, "I'm just not a salesman!" Followed by, "I just don't have time to run all over town talking to people about onions!" Both of these are pretty lame excuses because:

A. You don't really have to be much of a salesman to sell these onions. You just have to have the guts to ask. Everybody knows what "Vidalias" are and most people really like them. At any rate, nearly everyone will buy one for a good cause.

B. You sell these from the comfort of your home during commercials while watching the NCAA college basketball tournament or whatever your favorite TV show is. You can also do it by email. How much easier can it get.

Follow these steps and you will easily make your Camp goal of 20 bags or more.

1. Make a list of 20 friends (outside the Camp), work associates, church friends, car pool members, club friends, neighbors, cousins, uncles, aunts, & don't forget people form whom you have bought raffle tickets, girl scout cookies, BBQ tickets, etc. (It's payback time!)

2. Next to each name on the list, write down their phone number - or email address.

3. Start calling. Call one person during each TV timeout while watching the game. Or you could call 5 people one night, then 5 the next night, and so on until you are done.

4. Take advantage of opportunities to tell people about your Camp and the good work you do.
