"New Business Development - Prospecting" Overview
The Internet is a vital part of the hospitality industry. Its incorporation into hotel processes such as reservations, extranets like Travelocity and web sites has been swift and effective. Carol Verret noticed that while most of the revenue generating processes of the other revenue centers of the hotel have incorporated e-tools, the sales process has lagged behind.
The Internet offers so many valuable tools for you to use in prospecting for new business. Special sites are also available that make the process of prospecting so much faster and more efficient. Carol's seminars and consultations stress this and so here are online modules that will guide you through a new methodology, incorporating e-tools, to make yours sales efforts more effective.
Individual employee access, good for a period of 30 days, is available for $109.
The three modules in this first course, of a three part series, deal with Prospecting.
