    Totally Toni is back...Toni Blake is an Inspirational Keynote, Comedianne, Marketing Expert, Author, Consultant and 'Industry Favorite'! Toni is joining the GIAA again to present "The Economics of Loyalty"

    In a market where the price can dominate marketing messages, it’s good to remember that when people choose for the price, there is ZERO LOYALTY! They will leave for the next great deal down the street without a second thought. A culture of loyalty exists when people choose your company and community because what they LOVE about the people, place, and life. Loyal people stay, work harder and are more likely to share a referral, positive online review and renew!

    The economics of loyalty has a clear vision to produce higher resident and employee retention, reduce turn over and to train cost PLUS attract great residents and employees to our community. Begining with an onsite culture that produces loyalty. Toni will show you three amazing programs that inspire relationships that love you back. The economy of loyalty seminar includes “Human School” with 6 great human habits that produce positive change. “Who we are” in small micro-moments leans us toward positive change or drama. This program demonstrates how learning little human habits builds a loyal economy to inspire renewals, referrals, and reviews. This program includes character building, habits for positive change, reputation management, social media marketing, resident relations and customer service. Bring the total team including maintenance. Anyone who talks to a customer that you want to keep an employee should attend! This program is also perfect for the supplier members and their staff. Come one, come all to a brand new seminar by Toni Blake, The Economics of Loyalty!

    This seminar is perfect for all Property Management Team Members and Vendor Partners.
