Gresik Regency is known as one of the industrial cities. In addition, Gresik district also has many interesting tourist destinations to visit, ranging from religious tourism, nature tourism, marine tourism, educational tourism and so on. A place managed by people who are creative and have foresight in exploiting opportunities supported by the Government with the assistance of the Ministry of Villages PIID-PEL, on an area of 241.1 M2, recently there was a new tourist destination in Gresik Regency named Edu Lontar Sewu Tour. Edu Wisata Lontar Sewu, which is located in Hendrosari Village, Menganti District, Gresik Regency, provides a cheap family vacation spot and can provide education, especially for children by offering natural and environmentally friendly entertainment venues with the characteristics of lontar and green rice fields.
Developments in the tourism sector have undergone various changes in both the pattern, shape and nature of activities, then the human impulse to travel, mindset and character development. According to Soekadijo in Fitriyana and Noviarni (2015: 172) explains that there are three factors that influence the success of tourism development for income-generating activities, including:
1) Tourism facilities, namely things that are able to attract visitors.
2) There are modes of transportation, namely everything that helps tourists to visit these tourist sites.
3) the existence of amenitis facilities, namely tourist facilities that provide services to tourists during domestic and foreign trips.
Edu Wisata Lontar Sewu is a service business sector where one of the things that distinguishes service and manufacturing businesses is the product produced, as stated by (Utari, 2011) is a service company that has intangible output, no standards, and cannot be stored, but can be directly consumed at the time of creation. Quality service is one of the most important determinants of increasing service satisfaction. The better the quality of services provided will have a good impact on customer loyalty (Utari, 2013).
Tjiptono (2016) explains the method of consumers or customers in calculating the size of service quality in the service sector is reliability. Promises are in accordance with the performance that should be given, such as productivity, quality of service according to standards, timeliness, accurate service, and no defects in the process. Service quality, product completeness and image have an impact on visitor satisfaction and loyalty (Utari, 2010). Meanwhile, Utari, et al., (2015) explain related to the Visitors satisfaction model. In order to improve customer loyalty as a moderating factor, it shows that service quality, price and image have an impact on Visitors satisfaction as well as service quality, price and image affect visitor loyalty. Furthermore, Utari's research (2009) explains that service performance directly has an impact on bank customer loyalty. Service performance indirectly has an impact on bank customer loyalty. Customer satisfaction does have a direct impact on customer loyalty.
The tourism potential of Edu Wisata Lontar Sewu must be published to the public at large through appropriate marketing channels. The low level of visits at Edu Wisata Lontar Sewu is inseparable from the impact of the marketing strategy implemented. According to Tjiptono and Chandra (2012: 184), marketing strategy is a basic means to achieve the target of a business entity by creating added and sustainable value in market access and marketing plans to serve the target market.
Customer Behavior Intention
Howard et al. in Kurniawan (2010: 2), states that if the intention to buy is interpreted in the form of an expression related to the mind then it reflects the customer's desire in choosing a specific brand at a predetermined time. According to Simamora (2008: 2) the intention to buy a product arises because of the basis of trust in product marketing and many other factors, if the mark-up exceeds the additional costs required for uniqueness, then the business owner has the ability to meet targets and provide unique products, then they can exceeds the industry average.
Satisfaction is a condition experienced by customers after receiving service and achieving various targets. Oliver in Utari (2015) found that after comparing the perceived and perceived performance with expectations, satisfaction is the level of experience of a person (customer). Kotler (2012); Hastomo, et al., (2021); Wahyudin, Sari, Ardiansari, Raharja & Kalbuana (2021) believes that buyer satisfaction is a form of buyer appreciation for the company's performance in accordance with their expectations (Dadang, 2010: 38).
Until now, the definition of customer satisfaction is still very controversial, and there are at least two types of areas. On the one hand, customer satisfaction is considered as a result, or a result achieved based on the experience of consuming certain goods or services (results-oriented approach). On the other hand, customer satisfaction is often seen as a result (process-oriented approach) (Dedy, et al., 2019).
Trust is a shared need between a company and its business partners (Kotler, 2012). Trust depends on various interpersonal relationships and various institutional factors, such as ability, courtesy, honesty and friendliness. Building online commitments can be difficult because companies have stricter regulations for online business partners than for other partners. Customers believe that they have not received excellent goods or services and have not delivered them at the right place and time, as well as others. Trust is a person's commitment to the intentions and actions of other parties (Siagian & Cahyono, 2014). If the service provider is able to fulfill its obligations and can be trusted, then trusting consumer expectations can be interpreted as consumer expectations of fulfilling promises. Mowen & Minor (2010) believe that customer commitment refers to what customers understand and make decisions about goods, attributes, and benefits.
Belch (2009) states that communication is a series of processes of planning, executing, evaluating, and controlling the benefits of new marketing functions that are used to communicate efficiently on their goals. Meanwhile, Kotler (2012) reveals that communication is an effort carried out by the company as an effort to convey knowledge, invite, and add customers either at that time or at another time and regarding the available goods and brands.
Communication according to Kotler (2012) needs to be synergized to convey a permanent desire and arrive at a profitable position. The beginning of the marketing relationship planning is monitoring every promising communication that the customer finds on the purpose of offering to the seller with all the things he will market. The seller provides experience opinions and responses to be able to influence the level of the goods payment process. Knowledge can help sellers and buyers in using budgets in relationships efficiently in planning and implementing relationship plans well. Marketers can make judgments about marketing communications according to their capacity to shape experiences and impressions, branding, and increase brand sales. In addition, the seller must be wise in using communication media and be able to assess the effectiveness and efficiency considerations. The vision of maximum image development activities will be appropriate when the seller pays attention to the stages of understanding the name of the product itself.
Image According to Kotler (2012) is a combination of beliefs, ideas, and images of individuals in certain things. Alma (2012) states that the image is the impression of an individual or group about a particular subject (including the company and its products), and is obtained from a process. From the previous meaning, it is understood that the image of a business entity is a simple image of an institution or business entity, which comes from a series of information generated by all memories from the senses.
Sach (2010) states that image is about our knowledge and attitudes towards different groups. Effendi then cites the definition of this image according to Soemirat and Ardianto (2007), namely the image is things around and see each other. Created for a purpose on a specific object, individual, or institution. The perception of the appearance must be deliberately made to have a positive value (Sukatendel in Soemirat and Ardianto, 2007).
This research uses explanatory research, and explanatory research is research designed to test hypotheses that are used to confirm or refute existing research hypotheses(Abadi, 2021; N Aliyyah, 2021; Nabilah Aliyyah, 2021; Endarto et al., 2021; Endarto et al., 2021; Indrawati, Utari, Prasetyo, Rusdiyanto & Kalbuana, 2021; Juanamasta et al., 2019; Kalbuana et al., 2021; Kalbuana et al., 2021; Luwihono et al., 2021; Prabowo, Rochmatulaili, Rusdiyanto & Sulistyowati, 2020; Prasetio et al., 2021; Prasetyo et al., 2021; Prasetyo, Aliyyah, Rusdiyanto, Nartasari et al., 2021; Prasetyo et al., 2021; Prasetyo, Aliyyah, Rusdiyanto, Kalbuana & Rochman, 2021; Prasetyo et al., 2021; Prasetyo et al., 2021; Prasetyo et al., 2021; Rusdiyanto, Agustia, Soetedjo & Septiarini, 2020; Rusdiyanto et al., 2021; Rusdiyanto, Hidayat, et al., 2020; Rusdiyanto et al., 2020; Shabbir et al., 2021; Susanto et al., 2021; Utari et al., 2021; Nabilah Aliyyah et al., 2021; Budi Endarto et al., 2021; Bahtiar Prabowo et al., 2021; Prasetio et al., 2021; Prasetyo et al., 2021; Indra et al., 2021; Taufiqurrahman et al., 2021; Wibowo et al., 2021; Wirsamulia, 2021). This research is fundamental, so the research data used will remain original and primary. The research approach uses quantitative research, meaning that this research focuses on the study of numerical data processed by statistical methods (Azwar, 2007). Subana and Sudrajat (2005) revealed that quantitative research is used as a theory test tool, presenting reality by describing it in numerical data (statistics) to show the relationship between the factors studied. The location of this research is in the Edu Wisata Lontar Sewu tour in Hendrosari Village, Menganti District, Gresik Regency, East Java.
The operational definition of the variable is the elaboration of the concept in the form of measurable details through research indicators. As for the course of this research, there are 5 (five) research variables=three independent variables, one dependent variable and one intervening variable. Then the independent variables include Trust, Communication and Image. The dependent variable is Visitors satisfaction. While the intervening variable is Behavioral Intention.
Trust is an aspect of visitor trust. Trust is defined as trust or confidence from both institutions and parties in maintaining a relationship to satisfy personal needs and mutual interests, both explicit and implicit (Sheth & Mittal, 2004). Communication is any kind of communication work done by companies to achieve their marketing goals. Image as expressed by Kotler (2012: 299) is part of a series of beliefs, thoughts, and memories in individuals about certain things. Customer behavior intention according to Howard et al., in Kurniawan (2010: 2) is stated as a conscious statement reflecting the buyer's plan to acquire a certain brand within a certain period of time. According to Kotler & Keller (2008), visitor satisfaction is a happy and satisfied experience. After comparing the performance of the so-called product with the desired result, disappointing someone
The researcher decides to study the object and subject and then draws conclusions. (Arikunto, 2010:73). All participants in this study were clients of Edu Wisata Lontar Sewu. The sample is included in the research population or is representative (Arikunto, 2010: 109). The sample for this research is set at 100 people.
Random sampling is used as a sampling procedure, namely anyone who agrees with the researcher during the research (Sugiyono, 2012: 84). This method is used because the subject studied involves the behavior of visitors who are not present every day. On the day of the incident, but only at certain times.
Two types of data are used in this study; the first is primary data indirect information by distributing a list of questions to visitors who visit Edu Wisata Lontar Sewu. This primary data is the main data that the SPSS computer program will analyze. Furthermore, secondary data supports primary data, which can include newspapers, magazines, and other literature that can support research results.
