Gilmore<br />“A few years ago, I saw some teenagers at a Wal-Mart putting quarters into one of those elaborate gumball machines with flashing lights, spiraling tubes, and cascading chutes—a roller coaster of sorts for gumballs. They were feeding coin after coin into the machine only to watch gumball after gumball circle around and around. And they weren’t consuming the gumballs after they came out! What were they buying? An experience!”<br />

  39. 39. Torfs<br />For Torfs using harmonizing positive cues means personalising the service to your customer. Torfs is in the business of selling shoes and this is tricky to personalise. Making a real difference in the way they approach their customers is what they want to achieve. This means the way in which they pay attention to their customer, or the way in which they treat him or her, and try to ‘put themself in the shoes of their customer’ and endeavour to find out what he or she needs. Therefore they have had to give their staff specific training in personalising their approach to the individual customer. How to greet and welcome customers into the shop, and how to address certain problems, etc. <br />
  40. 40. At the LairesseApotheek in Amsterdam, for example, all impressions are in sync with each other. You can experience this pharmacy’s vision through your senses, as it were. www.delairesseapotheek.nl<br />LarisseApotheek<br />
  41. 41. Carglass already exists many years, but it is a nice example of instantaneous gratification. When your car glass is broken you can make an appointment by phone or internet, when and where you want. At their local car centers not only the cars get a premium treatment (the broken car is fixed are replaced and on top of that your car is vacuum cleaned, and the glasses are washed), but as well the customers (free drinks, free wi-fi, free newspapers, comfortable waiting rooms, and most importantly friendly, smiling people)www.carglass.be<br />Carglass<br />

  43. 43. Spoor Noord … or how cities can also eliminate negative cues. Spoor Noord is a brand new park in Antwerp. Spoor Noord is a contemporary urban landscape park. It combines nature, light, space, relaxation, culture, sports and events.The western section of the park includes a number of play areas, a bmx and skate park, in summer a summer terrace and much more. The entire park has a lot of free space to sunbath, picknick or relax. There even is a public barbecue in the park, just bring food, drinks and stuff to let it burn. Clean the barbecue afterwards and enjoy!Reconversion of an old industrial area.<br />Park Spoor Noord<br />

Dutch airline KLM released a video a few weeks back demonstrating how they used social media to spread a little happiness amongst some of their customers.Their activity was to identify customers who checked in on Foursquare or mentioned on Twitter that they were flying with KLM from a particular airport.
