Abstract

This study analyses the effects of social media marketing characteristics and consumer attitudes on electronic word of mouth (eWOM) responses in the banking industry. A survey was conducted with a total of 416 customers who used social media accounts that are managed by companies within the banking sector; the collected data were then analysed using structural equation modelling. The results showed that banking Social media marketing characteristics (including interactivity, informativeness, and entertainment) have significant effects on eWOM. The results also demonstrated that customer attitudes significantly affect eWOM. It is expected that the results of this study may be used as fundamental data in the development of banking sector Social media marketing characteristics and attitude strategies, particularly by investigating the relative importance of each Social media marketing characteristics component.
