As part of its ongoing commitment to education and training, TRACK Hospitality Software and ResortsandLodges.com are pleased to announce their next sponsored quarterly webinar with Doug Kennedy, the lodging industry’s most experienced sales and guest service trainer. The webinar “Why You Should be Listening to What Your Voice Agents are Saying to Real Callers” will take place at 11:00 am CDT on September 26th, 2018. To register click here.
This is a wonderful learning opportunity for managers at hotels, resorts and vacation rental companies to learn how important it is for revenue and marketing executives to listen in to conversations taking place daily between voice reservations agents and real-world callers. This webinar will cover:
- How the telephone is “the storefront window” to your hotel.
- How decreased call volume and voice bookings, may not mean decreased voice inquiries.
- What the most important question voice agents should ask to convert more “inquiry only” calls into sales (Hint: It is not “Do you want to make the reservation?”)
- What digital marketing staff can learn about your website content by speaking with voice reservations agents.
