What is it about?

Brand communities have become a popular research area in the last decades. However, the topic still raises several questions. The current study aims to examine how the psychological sense of a brand community influences commitment, loyalty and word-of-mouth; and how self-concept congruency affects the psychological sense of a brand community.

Why is it important?

This study has developed a new model. Placing self-concept congruency in the loyalty models is a novelty, and its effect on the psychological sense of a brand community is a new result.


I hope that the developed new model could offer a basis for further scientific and practical applications.
