SAN DIEGO - July 16, 2013 - PRLog -- ITEX San Diego Exchange Adds Hospitality Social Selling to Its Business Barter Exchange

San Diego’s Premier Hospitality Industry Marketing Consultant Joins World’s Largest Business Bartering Network

July 17, 2013

San Diego, CA – ITEX in San Diego, http://www.itexinsandiego.com/, part of the oldest and largest barter network in the US, today announced that Hospitality Social Selling has joined the San Diego ITEX barter organization. Hospitality Social Selling provides seminars and consultancy services for businesses that want to learn how to leverage LinkedIn and other social networking programs in order to increase marketing effectiveness and improve business development productivity.

Valarie Sparks, CEO of Hospitality Social Selling, is the leading LinkedIn expert for the hospitality industry. She is recognized for her high-energy, high-content, get-to-the-ROI LinkedIn Social Selling Workshops. Valarie’s professional background includes 13 years in hotel management, from Marriott International to independent resort properties. She gained a reputation as a successful sales hunter who consistently exceeded hotel sales quotas through her usage of LinkedIn. During her training workshops, hospitality sales professionals learn to maximize LinkedIn as a business development and continual client engagement tool.

“Working with ITEX and ITEX business members provides a new source of growth for our company,” explains Ms. Sparks. “Due to the time sensitive nature of services and room availabilities, the hospitality industry is an ideal business sector for bartering. If a room is not occupied, it is gone forever. Opening up a new marketing channel via barter can easily increase overall sales without increasing costs.”

“Many ITEX members recognize the value of social networking and LinkedIn but often don’t quite get it,” says Art Kaliel, Manager, San Diego ITEX Manager. “Valarie is able to walk them through the various options and demonstrate how to successfully use LinkedIn for their business development and marketing.”
