WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) - It's that time of year again to eat girl scout cookies!

Normally, we are used to girl scout cookies being sold in person. However, with the pandemic girl scout, Vanessa Simmons decided to promote online cookie sales by making commercials.

Using her laptop, Simmons has been making and creating her own cookie commercials to get more people ordering online.

With the help of her mother, who is also her troop leader, they were able to come up with fun ideas to get people's attention.

Simmons said she wasn't sure what to expect but has seen people really respond to her commercials.

"It's been pretty good like I have got a lot of online sales that I got from the video," Simmons said.

Simmons also said she knew it would be hard for many girls to sell cookies this year. Therefore, she hopes her idea can inspire other girl scouts to keep pushing on.

"Keep the faith up, if you don't have a lot of cookies that you've sold so far, it's not that big of a deal," Simmons said, "you'll do great!"

So far, Simmons has sold over $500 worth of cookies. You can find her commercial on Facebook and buy her cookies HERE.
