Lounge In The Sky: Taking Crowds to The Clouds

Have you ever had the desire to dine up in the sky?
Surely it will be a lot of fun, isn’t it exciting?
Here in Jakarta, you can now have the experience of a lifetime!

Lounge In The Sky, a restaurant from Mangkuluhur City and Dits’s collaboration, will launch its unique restaurant in January 2022. They offer a unique-new experience, that is, eating from the sky.

Eating from 50 meters above the sky, you’ll be able to see the view of Jakarta from every angle. The Semanggi Butterfly, known as Jembatan Semanggi, is also visible from the dining location and will undoubtedly be an exciting sight for the people visiting. The four delicious course meals in this floating place are made by Boca Rica Tapas Bar & Lounge, and you’ll definitely get to savor this unique dining experience.

Mangkuluhur City and Dits Asia have teamed up to bring this culinary experience to life, revitalizing local and international tourism. As Sandiaga Uno, Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, recently said, cooperation between all parties is needed to recharge our tourism industry.

Arvin Randawa, founder and CEO of Dits Asia, expressed his enthusiasm. He admitted that he is delighted to finally launch Lounge In The Sky in Indonesia-the third Lounge In The Sky in the world. “Jakarta is a city full of passion and vitality. After staying at home for almost 2 years, we all need a celebration and some fun things. What else is more suitable than in the sky?” he said.

From their Instagram, @loungeinthesky.id, they introduced themselves using the hashtag #WeGoUp. They’ll start opening their restaurant reservations in December 2020. Until now, their Instagram account has approximately four thousand followers. In addition to using hashtags, they also introduce themselves through Instagram ads, which is considered more effective in reaching the public.

While eating up in the sky, don’t fret! Safety supervisors will provide information on safety regulations to guests before the platform is raised and constantly communicate with operators and staff on the ground.

This form of modern dining has been approved by the TÜV SÜD, an international organization originating in Germany that validates the safety of all kinds of products to protect both humans and the environment from harm. Furthermore, they used a telescopic boom crane weighing 300 tons to build this place.

So buckle up, chill a bit, and simply enjoy your meal and the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you!

The idea of delivering the most value for the consumer has evolved over the years. As we know, the best marketing strategy is cetera desunt for adaptive future-leader mindset that uncertainly evolved over decades. Companies began to use various promises in effort to persuade and attract customers. The fiercely increasing conditions of competition added the popularity of the concept of “brand” and “advertisement” by adopting the concept of neo-marketing and elaborate them with psychological terms. Albeit, all emotion influences consumers personal relationships, business choices, and buying decisions. The emotion itself has situational and reactive qualities, as well as satisfaction and expectations formed over lifetimes of experiences and interactions.

When a boy goes to an ice cream parlor or restaurant, he will feel befuddled. Choosing what he is going to get, that’s the thing that he despises. Would chocolate chip or strawberry ice cream please him better? Cheeseburger or fried chicken? He feared that what he selected will not give him as much pleasure as the other option would give. What he doesn’t choose could provide a higher sense of pleasure than the one he chose. One interesting finding utilized by neuromarketing is that people really don’t want to lose out. People are just as worried about what they might lose as to what they might gain.
In the meantime, one of the biggest challenges that marketers deal with is customers’ expectations in the pre-purchase phenomenon where the consumers haven’t fixed their buying decision yet. To tackle the challenge, many companies are competing to build relationships with their customers, with the expectations that they will be able to provide the best customer experience for specific individuals. Therefore, the company must be customer-centric to carry out a successful marketing strategy in order to be noticed by consumers and to forge a brand identity.

According to McKinsey (2019), by making a fundamental change of mindset of focusing on the customers, companies gained significant enhancement on several aspects. Along with operational and IT improvements, companies generate 20 to 30 percent uplift in customer satisfaction, a 10 to 20 percent improvement in employee satisfaction, and economic gains ranging from 20 to 50 percent of the cost base addressed in the various journeys.

To overcome these challenges, companies have to understand consumers’ behavior and expectations. Hence, companies should put a bigger concern towards consumers’ buying-cycle from awareness to its advocacy. By implementing the concept of Neuromarketing, stereotypes of the communication matters of the marketing basis will be integrated with taste of individual market itself. The more personalized the promotion, the higher the probability that the advertisement will work. It could be done by using big data to allow the company for this huge aggregation of all consumers personal information that they’ve ever revealed to build a precise representation of who they are, now, more than ever before. Data and insight are not delivered to consumers as a whole but individually by delivering the most value to the customers with a very specific scope based on how they think.

In order to win in today’s marketplace, companies must be customer-centered, to the point that ideally, each individual customer’s values are taken into an account to derive the value that they are truly seeking. In essence, by generating consumer reactions, and treating them not as reactionary receptacles of marketing strategies, but as each their own person with differing individual values. Therefore, reinforcing belief is a very important matter for marketers that influences consumers experience. They must deliver superior value to their target customers traditionally and digitally with knowledge of neuroscience marketing strategies combined. Neuromarketing will surely strengthen customer’s contentment of a product itself.
