It’s an indication of the maturity of the service economy that companies a like IBM and other manufacturers now make greater profits from the services than from the goods they provide. The business equivalent of a shopping mall is a trade show—a place for finding, learning about, and, if a need is met, purchasing exhibitors’ offerings. The Experience Economy

7 The Characteristics of Experiences One way to think about experiences is across two dimensions. The first corresponds to customer participation. The second dimension of experience describes the connection, or environmental relationship, that unites customers with the event or performance. The Experience Economy

Five key experience-design principles have been identifies. The Experience Economy

12 Mix In Memorabilia Companies make their themes memorable by providing many positive cues that reinforce the theme's premise. Visitors to themed sites also like to purchase souvenirs — postcards, T-shirts, baseball caps, programs — as remembrances of their experiences. The Experience Economy

13 Eliminate negative cues. Experience stagers also must eliminate anything that diminishes, contradicts, or distracts from the theme.. Eliminating negative cues creates a more pleasurable customer experience. The Experience Economy

15 Getting Personal Memorable customized service is tailored specifically to each customer. Your decision about the use of customization ranks with your choices about other operational strategies. Basic customization is not the same thing as offering an extensive list of choices do not confuse customers by offering too many similar items The Experience Economy

16 The Theatre Model One way to offer a memorable experience is to put on interesting plays or to offer other performances to engage your audience. When companies produce experiences, customers are generally open to participating. The Experience Economy

17 Transformation Economy To get around this problem, companies can offer "transformational" experiences. Companies in the transformation sector of the Experience Economy give customers personalized attention and sustain their involvement over time.

Transformational experiences affect the provider, as well as the customer. The Experience Economy
