Professional practice: session 4 (Friday 19th Feb)

Reflection: what is Economic experience?

An experience add value of a product, people will pay more for an experience rather than the product.

Examples of economic experience

  • Frankie & Benny’s – pay more for the experience of being in a place of a Italian American setting suggested through the music that is played in the background, American diner seating and workers uniform as well as pay more for experience of food from a different culture
  • Costa coffee – proceeds go to farmers who grow the coffee beans; customers feel like they are helping other people who are in need
  • 4D golf – rather than playing orginal golf people are able to play golf with 3D effects as well as sound and air effects.
  • Subway – people are able to watch their food being made which they are unable to do else where
  • Handmade/crafted products – people can buy personalised products with a persons name or personlised message on the product
  • Nostaligic experience – people like to buy a product that reminds them of a memory such as a childhood toy
