Don't expect the buzz surrounding discount media darling JetBlue to fade anytime soon. The airline has been successful at luring both thrifty leisure passengers and well-heeled travelers something that ultimately breeds "fanatic loyalty," according to The New York Times That broad customer base helps distinguish JetBlue from fellow low-cost carriers such as Southwest. "Flying JetBlue isn't just about taking a trip," trend watcher Faith Popcorn said to The Times. "It has actually become something fun to do. She talked of an extremely wealthy parent at her child's New York prep school who was talking up their JetBlue flight for a family trip to Florida. "When you're that rich and you fly coach you may try to hide it, but he said it with such pride, like he was traveling in the coolest, most trendy way," Popcorn said. Passengers and analysts alike credit the airline for a simple pricing structure, and for making their passengers feel like VIPs. It's cool to fly JetBlue March 23, 2004
The Experience Economy The basic premise of The Experience Economy is that up to now, we have focused most of our efforts on pricing commodities, goods and or services. We are emerging into a new era of thought where we are finding that what our customers really want is an experience that keeps them coming back for more. EXPERIENCES… Lets take a look at some EXPERIENCES…

Experience How to Design an Experience To design a rich, compelling and engaging experience, you dont want to select and then stay in just one realm. Instead, you want to use an experiential framework as a set of prompts that help you to creatively explore the particular experience you wish to stage. When designing an experience, lets consider the the Four Es:
esthetics What can be done to improve the esthetics of the experience? The esthetics is what make your guests want to come in, sit down and hang out. Think about what you can do to make the environment more inviting, interesting and comfortable. You want to create an atmosphere in which your guests feel free to be.
escapist Once there, what should your guests do? The escapist aspect of an experience draws your guests further, immersing them in activities. Focus on what you should encourage your guests to do if they are to become active in the experience.
educational The educational aspect of an experience, like the escapist, is essentially active. Learning, as it is now largely understood, requires the full participation of the learner. What do you want your guests to learn from the experience? What information or activities will help to engage them in the exploration of knowledge and skills?
Entertainment Entertainment, like esthetics, is a passive aspect of an experience. When your guests are entertained, theyre not really doing anything but responding to (enjoying, laughing at, etc.) the experience. Professional speakers lace their speeches with jokes to hold the attention of their audience, to get them to listen to ideas. What can you do by way of entertainment to get your guests to stay? How can you make the experience more fun and more enjoyable?
Addressing these design issues sets the stage for service providers to begin competing on the basis of an experience. Those, which have already forayed into the world of experiences, will gain from further enriching their offerings in the light of these four realms.
Whats the best meeting experience you have ever had and why? Table Talk
them Most parents dont take their kids to Walt Disney World just for the event itself but rather to make that shared experience part of everyday family conversations for months, and even years afterward. While the experience itself lacks tangibility, people greatly value the offering because its value lies within them, where it remains long afterwards. ROI ROI of the Experience Return on Experience
not experience Because your companies stage so many different kinds of experiences, you can more easily differentiate your offerings and thereby charge a premium price based on the distinctive value provided, not the market price of the competition. Price your commodity or service based upon the experience your customer receives from it. Experiences = Value!
