For the past several decades, growth in the service sector has far exceeded growth of expenditures on tangible goods. Service marketing is based on the value of customers’ experiences and processes which are intangible. The success of service marketing lies in understanding continues changing consumers demands and defining a service concept that exceeds their expectations.
