 Abstract

This study identifies determinant factors of customer e-loyalty towards the advertising shown on Durex Thailand facebook fan page. Other variables include advertising value (Entertainment, Informativeness, and Brand usage imagery congruity), e-satisfaction and e-trust, which can affect e-loyalty. Exploratory sequential design generalizes qualitative findings obtained from four interviewees to demonstrate if they can be generalized as a sample. Then, applying simple random sampling technique, an online survey was conducted to gather 600 samples, selected from 110,000 registered followers of Durex Thailand facebook fan page during July till October 2013.The results indicated that with the consumption trend changing from rational to perceptual, attractive advertising content can impact followers’ attitude and their e–loyalty. The results may not be applicable to non-internet users and non-followers of the Durex Thailand facebook fan page.  Facebook is considered as the social media marketing platform which is used as a tool instead of other traditional marketing platform.  Without internet technology development, such media marketing is meaningless. This paper adds theoretical knowledge on social media advertising loyalty model, thus benefits other industries to promote brand loyalty.


Key words: Advertising, Durex Thailand facebook fans page, e-loyalty, social media marketing
