AbstractMarketing strategies for brands have shifted its focus on relationships and value creation that directly links to brand loyalty, is the main focus of this paper and two key factors: brand experience and brand commitment, within automotive sector, are investigated to examine relative relationships. These factors have already been established to have a connection to brand loyalty. However, as brand commitment consists of both affective and continuance commitment, it is still somewhat unclear about which of these aspects of commitment has the greatest, or most important impact on brand loyalty. Moreover, the existing research and literature surrounding the brand experience construct is extensive. However, it is not entirely clear regarding this construct’s relationship to brand loyalty. While some authors claim that it affects brand loyalty directly, others have found that it is a dependent variable, which, alone does not have any immediate effect on brand loyalty. This study also investigates a connection between brand experience and brand loyalty as far as automotive sector is concerned, both with and without commitment as a mediator. As a result, continuance commitment was found to not have any considerable impact on the consumer’s loyalty towards a brand, it is assumed that factors such as price and other available alternatives dos not influence this desire to maintain said relationship.

To what extent is social network ‘Facebook’ used as a communications tool to develop brands in Chester’s nightlife scenePaul, Stuart; Cawley, Ryan (University of Chester, 2009-09)The purpose of this dissertation is to investigate the extent social networking has on branding within Chester’s night life clubs. The concept of using social network ‘Facebook’ to develop a brand is relatively modern; therefore there is little previously bounded literature within this area. Therefore the approach taken during this process will aim to build a theory that answers such questions. The literature that will be analyzed will be centered on generalized marketing terms around the areas of building a brand image, creating word of mouth and developing a brand community. Under the bracket of such headings, many differing academic theories and models can be considered. The research will evaluate and consider existing research concerning many differing aspects of branding. Such as creating brand awareness, re-forcing the brands image, creating brand associations, building brand perception, developing a corporate image, communication messages. The base knowledge gathered from such data will give the project a good base from which to move from. The information hear will then be used to develop relevant questions ready for the qualitative data to be gathered in the form of the interviews and the student-led focus group. This approach will although for the results to be compared and contrasted against and viable conclusions to be drawn.
Through the looking glass: the factors that influence consumer trust and distrust in brandsMal, Carmen; Davies, Gary; Diers-Lawson, Audra (Wiley, 2018-09-27)This paper aims to identify the factors responsible for creating brand trust and brand distrust among consumers. It uses a grounded theory approach to guide the conduct and analysis of 20 semi-structured interviews that yielded 120 descriptions of consumer-brand interactions. The 3 stage model that emerged shows a process whereby consumers prioritize product/service quality information and subsequently consider how the company behind the brand behaves towards consumers in the name of the brand, specifically behaviors signalling its integrity and benevolence. Finally, consumers consider characteristics of the company behind the brand (e.g. its financial status) and how it behaves in its own name towards other stakeholder groups (e.g. employees). The process for distrust mirrors that for trust, implying the two are polar opposites. The data also show that trust and distrust in a brand can co-exist but within separate domains.
