As the Destination Marketing arena becomes increasingly complex, DMOproZ strives to provide an easily accessed Knowledge Bank for DMO pros around the world. From White Papers to cutting edge Research to our recommendations on books to make you think, videos to encourage your creativity and blogs to keep you current.

And, we want this to be a two-way street. When you see a great resource that would be a benefit to the DMO collective, shoot it our way and we'll post it up for your peers. 


What the Laziest Sales People Do

6a00d83451b69969e201b8d25dc99c970c-150wiThey cold call.

It takes no effort (other than punching in the numbers)...and it produces precious little result.

The smart sales professional, according to Frank Rumbauskas (author of Never Cold Call Again), seeks out new and innovative ways to generate leads. Like using prospect's clicks in e-mail messages to identify warm prospects, as suggested by Tom Martin in The Invisible Sale (trust me, it's worth the purchase price).

As Henry Ford famously said, “Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.”

If you sell...taking the lazy way out is not a long-term solution.
