LAFAYETTE, La., Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Last year, nearly 160,000 Girl Scouts experienced a revolutionary update to the iconic Girl Scout Cookie Program: the Digital Cookie™ platform. Digital Cookie 1.0 brought twenty-first-century technology to the classic piece of Americana that is the Girl Scout Cookie Program, this initiative was a first step in preparing girls to be leaders in the high-tech, fast-paced, e-commerce world of today. This is Girl Scouts of Louisiana – Pines to the Gulf's second year participating in Digital Cookie, and as the 2015–2016 Girl Scout Cookie season gets underway, local girls are excited to participate in Digital Cookie 2.0.
Digital Cookie 2.0's game-changing addition of a mobile sales app will expands girls' ability to take their sale on the go. The new app replicates the transactional elements of the girl's personal website.
Girls will be introduced to important new skills about running an e-commerce business, including digital marketing, online money management, resource allocation using a "spend, save, and give" model revenue projection, and digital customer acquisition and management, all in a safe, hands-on environment.
Digital Cookie 2.0 represents a continuing evolution toward one fully immersive online experience—made possible by Dell and Visa. Girls from Girl Scouts of Louisiana -Pines to the Gulf began using the platform at the start of its cookie-selling season on January 16, 2016.
