Transcript of Habits of Highly Successful Hotel Sales People
Hotel Sales People
By Carol Verret, Carol Verret and Associates
Definition of HABIT from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/habit
-a behavior pattern acquired by frequent repetition or physiologic exposure that shows itself in regularity or increased facility of performance
What are these habits that will help us achieve Daily Disciplines
Eating the Elephant One Bite at a Time. Successful sales people take their goals, revenue, prospecting, calls etc. and break them down into monthly, weekly, daily activities.
Not all activities, calls, traces, etc, are created equal. Prioritized sales people call on those prospects most likely to produce revenue before they do the trace calls to say 'hello' to existing accounts - they prioritize their calls.
Think Revenue not Just Rooms
The successful sales person pays attention to the property's revenue management strategy and understands that the name of the game is revenue - not rooms.
Whales and Tunas
Successful sales people know that they need a mix of both large and small groups and accounts to meet their revenue goals and to balance out the group calendar.
Successful sales people treat their market or their territory like a business - their business. They function as intraprenuers within the organization. That makes them think creative and allows them to think out of the box in addressing issues within the organizations on their client's behalf.
Personal (Brutally Honest) SWOT Analysis
Successful sales people evaluate their strengths in order to leverage it in to more business and maybe even a better position for themselves. They seek out opportunities in their market area and never underestimate the potential threats of competitors.
Sense of Urgency
Successful sales people have a sense of urgency about working their plan because they know that if they fall too far behind it will be very difficult to catch up. Their sense of urgency is focused and directed not just a sense of urgency about activity, any activity.
