SERVICE MARKETING: Week 1- introduction Why service marketing? Dominates economy Entry level jobs Goods and services leads to revenue How to make more money? Improve your customer service people are paying for Intanglible aspects make companies different All tanglible things cannot be completely minimized Tangible dominant: Salt, soft drinks Intangible dominant: teaching, consulting Service Industries: Health Care: hospital, medical practice, dentistry, eye care Professional Services: accounting, legal, architectural Financial Services: banking, investment advising, insurance Hospitality: restaurant, hotel/motel, bed & breakfast, ski resort, rafting Travel: airline, travel agency, theme park Others: hair styling, pest control, plumbing, lawn maintenance, counseling services, health club, interior design Why Focus on Services? Profit margin Differentiation Customer satisfaction Loyalty 4 ways services tend to be different than products: Intangibility: hard to price and cannot be inventoried Heterogeneity: hard to standardize service (McDonald’s has, in some ways) Simultaneous production in consumption: consume= output Perishability: once the time passes, that revenue is lost. Missed appointments, seats for flights, golf lessons Secret to services is to execute the same thing, day in and day out. People do not like surprises. Is the car fixed in 3 days or not? Is this line usually fast or slow? Good service needs training and commitment all the time. Being nice is an emotional labor intensive job Employees affect service outcome. Customers affect transactions. And customers also affect each other. Angry or excited Marketing Mix: Product Price Promotion Place People: how to deal with Physical evidence: environment of service Process: procedures and flow of activities, delivery and operating system Service Theater Framework: Actors: service workers Audience: customers Setting: service environment Performance: result of interaction Costumes: uniforms and dress code Scripts: training Roles: job description/ position Rehearsal: review, training Front stage: front desk workers Backstage: planning and execution Core: basics we need to do to stay in business (food and beverages for restaurants) Supplementary: things that support the core, (tables chair, knives, forks) Casa Bonita is the opposite, more on the experience of having fun with the amusement park and not focused on food.
