The ‘I Hate Cold Calls' Web Cast - The New Paradigm of Sales!

You should hate cold calls especially to those lists that begin with A or those Business Journal lists of every industry in the local market!  How much time do you and your staff spend on them -- what is the ROI on that sales time in terms of leads generated and closed?

The good news is that cold calls are pretty much dead and no one misses them much - especially the people that were cold called! There is a new way of doing hospitality sales.  Discover how to enable a strategy that gets you out of the cold call loop including how to craft a compelling email approach!

Web 2.0 and the Hotel Group Sales Process-Managing User Generated Content to Increase Sales!

 In a recent study by MiMegasite in TravelMole, 61% of meeting planners indicated that they make a venue decision based on information, photos and info found on the internet without the hassle of a personal on site visit.   

Many meeting planners are preferring third party sites like Star Cite, Elite meetings, EMC Venues, etc., to solicit initial RFPs in order to narrow the field of suitable hotels prior to engaging with any of them.  Many of them are using ‘instant' RFPs, often attached to a property's or a franchise web site.  This also applies to those SMERF social groups!

This was tied with the last program as the most popular program of 2007.
It will be offered at 12:00 Noon MDT, Friday December 7.
$129 for each connection
$235 for two webinars!
