Last Day of Fuse 2017: RTO Education Day

Fuse 2017 Opening Session with Jay Baer

Today was the last day of Fuse 2017 and the highly anticipated RTO Education Day. Attendees shuffled into the Galveston Island Convention Center early Thursday as they waited for this year’s opening session, Hug Your Haters: How to Embrace Complaints and Keep Your Customers with Jay Baer. The one-hour session focused on the power of customer service and the how timely and empathetic response to complaints can help your business. Baer’s session was the perfect way to kick off the day leaving attendees with insightful marketing and customer service tactics.

The remainder of APRO’s RTO Education Day consisted of three one-hour breakout sessions that gave attendees a vast variety of rent-to-own topics. Highlights included sessions from APRO’s opening session speaker, Jay Baer, Why Smart Marketing is About Help, Not Hype. Industry Insights’ Greg Manns held an informative session covering APRO’s statistical survey results that represents the most comprehensive and more importantly, up-to-date comparative financial performance of the RTO industry. APRO’s General Counsel, Ed Winn, provided his legendary legal update session, focusing on recent hot developments within the industry.
