  • The Impact of Digital Marketing on Customer Buying Intention of Customers
           in the Philippines

    • Authors: Lance Astoriano, Gerona, Justin Albert D; Marzan, Juan Carlos R.
      Abstract: Digital marketing is arguably one of the preeminent marketing strategies utilized by today's vast number of businesses and companies. This strategy offers tools that enable them to promote their products to a much larger audience as it encompasses geographical boundaries. Also, it can build better relationships with customers since the content is customized to their liking. In the current study, the researchers aimed to determine how digital marketing affects the consumer behavior of Filipinos, specifically customer engagement and purchase intention. The following hypotheses were formulated: (H1) Social Media has a significant impact on Customer Engagement. (H2) Social media has a significant impact on purchase intention. (H3) Email marketing has a significant impact on customer engagement. (H4) Email marketing has a significant impact on purchase intention. (H5) Customer Engagement has a significant impact on purchase intention. A total of 334 respondents were surveyed online, and data was analyzed through the SPSS software. By the end of the research, it was found that digital marketing strategies, specifically social media marketing and email marketing, effectively generate purchase intention from Filipino consumers. This is aided by the customer engagement triggered by the advertisements presented on Facebook and their email. The researchers recommend further research on the topic but to branch out to other strategies and tactics of digital marketing since the current study focused solely on Facebook and email.

This study incorporated the Attention, Interest, Desire, and Action (AIDA) Model and Selective Exposure Theory (SET) to serve as the foundation of the analysis. The study employed descriptive causal analysis. The study surveyed a group of millennials, ranging from 25 to 40 years old, who currently reside in the Philippines' National Capital Region (NCR). The researchers distributed the survey through Google forms and then utilized frequency and percentage distribution, mean and standard deviation, and PLS-SEM to analyze the results. This study determined that marketing campaigns can largely input brand awareness among millennials compared to enhancing their brand recall. Furthermore, marketing campaigns trigger their purchase intention. This study is deemed a resource to business owners, marketing students and professionals, and academic institutions that hope to generate further information on the existence of TikTok and its marketing advantage.

           Purchase Intention

    • Authors: Mark Ryan Mergillano; Bryan Gabriel Nabor, Rhixonn Rourkee Halili, Kristian George Hinanay, Jun R. Grimaldo
      Abstract: Online advertising is considered as one of the most popular forms of communication in persuading consumers to purchase a product. It asks the question of how an advertisement becomes well-written or well-processed. Correspondingly, many factors contribute to making an online advertisement a successful process. In this light, the researchers aim to determine the influence of the different elements of online advertisements on Late Generation Z's purchase intention. To be more particular, the researchers focused on several factors, such as (1) advertising appeals, (2) visual and verbal elements, and (3) social media platforms. The methods utilized in gathering the data in this study were through Google Forms as there were constraints to physical contact due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After assessing the necessary data for this study, the researchers have found that some elements of online advertisements are always significant to Late Generation Z. To be more specific, some of these elements are as follows: (1) the brand logo’s overall style and background meaning, (2) the informativeness and credibility of an advertisement, (3) the authenticity of an advertisement, and lastly, (4) the credibility of social media platforms in terms of purchasing products and services. The study intends to fill the gap in this domain to help advertising companies, businesses, marketers, and researchers fully maximize the potential of online advertisements.

  • Pre- and Post-Purchase Factors Contributing to Dissonance of Filipino
           Credit Cardholders Amidst Exposure to Financial Risk

    • Authors: Andreana Gene Gomez; Kristine Falales, Tricia Mae Villaflores
      Abstract: Credit card transactions among Filipinos have steadily increased over the past years due to factors like convenience, availability, promotion, and payment terms. Amidst the benefits it brings, the possibility of consumer dissonance brought about by pre-and post-purchase factors as well as financial risk is still noteworthy consideration when utilizing credit. The study focuses on the analysis of the pre-and post-purchase factors that contribute to consumer dissonance amongst Filipino credit cardholders. Due to growing concerns over the development of consumer debt, a gap in the research literature suggests the need to examine the factors that influence the consumers in making their purchases amidst exposure to financial risk, especially with respect to the accessibility of payment extension solutions such as credit card payment. The study will utilize a Descriptive and Inferential Survey Research Design across 196 respondents within Metro Manila. Furthermore, this information can help business managers and operators to analyze and market their payment solutions more effectively.

  • Pink Power: The Extent of Awareness, Driving Factors, and Overall
           Perception of Filipina Youth Consumers in Metro Manila, Philippines on
           Pink Tax Caused by Pink Marketing Strategy

    • Authors: Allaine Bernadette Chua; Alyannah Hidalgo, Joshua James Huyo-a, Alain Jomarie G. Santos
      Abstract: One of the features of pink marketing is the usage of the color pink in women's products. However, this marketing strategy often employs pink tax, an extra amount charged to women's products even though the products are similar or equal in benefit to men's; the only difference is the color. In the Philippines, the pink tax is not yet explored. The study aimed to explore the extent of awareness, driving factors, and overall perception of Filipina youth consumers on pink tax caused by the practice of pink marketing. The study employed a qualitative descriptive research design. Thematic analysis revealed personal experiences of the respondents permeated the concept, corroborating previous literature and studies. The study concludes respondent Filipina Youth Consumers are aware of pink tax but only to the extent of definition and practice as observed in different products. They are not willing to buy products with pink tax as caused by the pink marketing strategy; however, the quality and the social and cultural norm with regard to gender schema are the driving factors to purchase. Negative perceptions outweigh the positive ones as it is viewed to be discriminatory, against equality and a way of deceiving and exploiting women consumers by the companies incorporating pink tax into their pink marketing strategy and respondents perceived that the concept should be addressed. The researchers recommend that the policymaking bodies study the matter to promote the value of women as consumers and contributors to the economy. They can use this research for policymaking or reference to review existing consumer and business laws for improvement.

  • The Relationship of Facebook Messenger Marketing to the Purchasing
           Intention of the Consumers of Philippine MSMEs

    • Authors: Anne Valerie Casimiro; Cathleen Chua, Dominique Earl Pasquin, Jun R. Grimaldo
      Abstract: Philippines, as the social media capital of the world, has the highest social media usage rate, with over 60% higher than the average rate for other countries and which amounts to an average of 11 hours of usage per day, as of 2021. Compared to over 9 hours per day last 2019, it is evident that the pandemic caused a spike in the statistics since more people are on their phones while staying at home. From the start of the pandemic, the use of social media platforms including Facebook Messenger for marketing product and service offerings from MSMEs has also increased. The restrictions brought upon by the rise of COVID-19, made MSMEs integrate the use of these platforms to market their products and connect with their consumers by providing online customer service. 300 respondents were asked to answer the survey which involves questions about service/web qualities and purchase intention to which the researchers discovered the significance of informativeness, assurance, and empathy towards the purchase intention of the consumers in encountering messages from MSMEs on Facebook Messenger. It was found that web and service quality factors affect the purchase intention of the respondents positively to a certain degree. This study has shown that most people prefer to use Facebook Messenger when it comes to purchasing things online. Different levels of significance with purchase intention were found among different factors of marketing messages sent through Facebook Messenger. Informativeness, assurance, and empathy are the ones that are significantly correlated with purchase intention. Whereas Access, Reliability, and Responsibility have a lower significance with Purchase Intention.

  • Transitioning Towards a Fully Digital Banking Environment: Analyzing
           Financial Consumption Preferences of Metro Manila Banking Customers

    • Authors: Nina Isabel Gigante; Patricia Anne Martin, Hiroshi Marutani
      Abstract: The emergence of technology, combined with the adoption and integration of new practices, has greatly affected multiple business fields, including the Philippine banking industry. This leads to the entrance of fully digital banking platforms, a potential alternative to brick-and-mortar banks. Would Metro Manila banking customers utilize fully digital banks, or would they prefer the established traditional banking institutions as their personal choice for financial services and transactions' By surveying 385 respondents, the researchers obtained and analyzed information about the preferences and behavior of banking customers to learn more about the degree to which customer characteristics affected their preferences for certain banking products. This study proved that Metro Manila banking customers have a strong inclination towards physical or traditional banks, given that 60.5% of the total respondents are traditional banking users compared to 4.4% for fully digital banks and 35.1% for both traditional and fully digital banks. Decision variables such as convenience, efficiency, customization/personalization, security, and privacy also played a significant role in evaluating and assessing customer motivation in determining a preference. The results yielded a more localized and concentrated approach that exhibits the factors regarding traditional and fully digital banks that would potentially help the Philippine banking industry to adjust and adapt to emerging technology and consumer needs.

  • Instaworthy: A Study on the Effects of Photo Editing towards Electronic
           Commerce in Metro Manila

    • Authors: Kyle Ivan Anthony Pablo; Gerald Gallaza, Bianca Elizabeth Delos Reyes, Francis Lawrence B. De Jesus
      Abstract: Photo-editing has been emerging since businesses shifted into e-commerce. This is one of the strategies used by businesses and companies to enhance the appearance of their products. A well-known platform in this generation for e-commerce that can utilize photo-enhancing tools is Instagram. A review of the related literature says that people’s perceptions and behaviors change whenever visual aids are present. Photographs and videos emit specific reactions from people because of their Cognitive and Perceptual biases. This is also why consumers behave in a particular way during the start of their purchasing decision phase in the e-commerce platform. Furthermore, Instagram marketing is one of the most affected platforms since this application’s contents revolve around its photo-sharing feature, which many feared can be deceiving. This study proves that photographs have an impact that can be related to the purchasing behavior of the consumers, much more if the marketing collateral is very likeable. It increases the interest of the consumers and helps business owners to develop photographic collateral and have a better sales performance for the businesses. Although two biases were present, the most recurring is the Perceptual influence of the consumers. The exposure to external intakes made people capable of handling their expectations, which is why it debunks the perceptions of other people’s views about how deceiving Instagram marketing can be as a photo-sharing e-commerce platform.

           Travel Applications

    • Authors: Fatima Amagsila; Ella Mae Cadavis, Jhon Paul Callueng, Jc Reimark Manio
      Abstract: Social media has been used as a platform to learn or share a person's travel experiences which enabled a new wave of marketing where influencers play a huge role. From this instance, would the consumers’ brand perception and usage intention be affected by these influencers that they see on social media' The study was characterized as descriptive-correlational research and gathered data through a survey using self-made questionnaires, validated by an academic practitioner and tested reliability with Cronbach alpha. With the Online Travel Agencies in the country as the subjects, and the travel enthusiasts who belong to the Millennial or Generation Z group and are living in the city, specifically in the Philippines’ National Capital Region, as the respondents of this study. Using a Raosoft calculator, the researchers collected 385 responses as the minimum required sample size for this study. The data collected showed a positive correlation between influencer marketing and brand perception of travel applications with a correlation coefficient of 0.622 using Spearman's Rho. However, there are specific characteristics that respondents look for in an influencer, primarily the ability "to inspire." and their credibility in promoting travel applications.

      Abstract: In recent years, Filipino consumers are becoming more socially aware of the usage of products that can be harmful to the environment. Purchasing eco-friendly products is a big step towards sustainable development in the Philippines. The objectives of this study are to identify what are the socially-oriented behavior that influences Filipino consumers to purchase eco-friendly apparel products, if emotions play a role in the purchasing behavior regarding eco-friendly apparel products, and to identify the key determinants that are behind the reason for the intention-behavior gap and purchasing behavior of Filipino consumers regarding eco-friendly apparel products. Filipino consumers from age 18 and above and those residing in Metro Manila are the respondents, while the use of descriptive survey methods was utilized in data collection. The results revealed that the three variables, which are Socially Oriented Behavior, Emotions, and Key Determinants, all passed the PLS-SEM and have discriminant validity. However, the discussion of the results had proved that only two out of three hypotheses had been proven to be true, which are hypotheses 1 and 3. Socially Oriented Behavior and Key Determinants have been proven to affect Purchasing Behavior, whereas emotions play no significant role in the purchasing behavior of Filipino consumers. In addition, this study showed that the Key Determinants factor quality and availability of green apparel could influence the intention-behavior gap.

A total of 300 respondents answered the online survey via Google forms, 145 respondents for Gen Y and 155 respondents for Gen Z. The survey questionnaire was conducted with three different parts, which are; Profiling, Ad testing, and General Questionnaire. To answer the different research questions in this study, the following statistical treatment tools were used; Kruskal-Wallis H Test and Post Hoc Test, Mann-Whitney U Test, and Multivariate Regression Analysis, all at 0.05 and 0.1 levels of significance. For the results of this study, the researchers found out that Ethical pre-roll advertisements capture Gen Z's attention using the Post Hoc Test. On the other hand, Emotional pre-roll advertisements capture Gen Y's attention based on the Mann-Whitney U Test. The study successfully identified advertising ABPs of the Gen Y and Z that significantly influenced their brand engagement. If these ABPs garnered a high score, the probability of a high brand engagement score towards the particular pre-roll advertising appeal also increases.

           Industry to the Purchase Intention of the Generation Z Filipinos

    • Authors: Ronn Alexis Castillo; Czarina Zoy Jaramillo, Leonard Sy
      Abstract: Influencer marketing, the process of examining, identifying, and supporting beauty influencers who communicate on behalf of the brand’s customers, is a trend in today’s digital world across various social media platforms, creating an opportunity for brands to market through social media influencers. To investigate the effectiveness of social media influencers in the cosmetics and skincare industry, the researchers conducted a quantitative analysis using Pearson Product Moment Correlation to examine and identify the effectiveness of social media influencers in the said industry on the purchase intention of Filipino consumers. This research is distinctive as it concentrates on the relatively emerging and fast-evolving cosmetic and skincare industry in the Philippine market. The absence of studies in the Philippines, where social media influencers play a vital role in a brand’s marketing and advertising efforts, is one element that distinguishes this study. The study has highlighted four main hypotheses. These factors include Trust, Perceived Credibility, Perceived Image, and Brand Attitude as the influencing factors for Generation Z Filipino consumers. Findings from the data gathered have shown that all the hypotheses generated a significant relationship and positive correlation toward purchase intention.

  • Understanding the Influence of Mobile Interface of Shopee and Lazada on
           Customer Conversion

    • Authors: Therhey Ann Centeno; Alliah Clarisse Pacheco, Gem Danielle Sigua, Nicole John Tan, Ronald Fernandez
      Abstract: Mobile commerce is an industry that has rapidly grown in value over the years. Fewer customers now use their mobile devices only as a single functioning unit, expanding their purpose even to shopping. Despite its increasing popularity, recent literature reviews did not reveal a definitive study on m-commerce app interface quality and its relation to customer conversion. This paper aims to understand the influence of mobile interface on customer conversion by examining the top 2 e-commerce apps in the Philippines – Shopee and Lazada. The Regression analysis method is applied in determining relationships between variables. From a total of 385 participants, results show that dimensions of the mobile interface (visual appeal, layout quality, information quality) influence credibility and usability, except for in-app banners, which has a negligible effect on customers. The study has also found that all aspects of mobile interface positively influence customer conversion. On top of that, the researchers have also taken steps to discover that perceived trust and ease of use greatly affect customer conversion. Hence, when a customer finds an e-commerce platform to be trustworthy and user-friendly, the more they will be likely to purchase a product.

  • An analysis of Gen Z’s Purchase intention of Video Games within
           Metro Manila

    • Authors: Lian Thorjie Lim; Enrico Miguel Peralta, Martin Jego Solano
      Abstract: Advertisements are regarded as one of the most efficient ways in which a brand can send a message to its customers. More than this, advertisements are also the easiest way in which consumers are able to know more about certain products and services offered by companies that are available in the market. It is because of the effectiveness of advertisements in creating consumer demand that companies invest large sums of money in advertising. As the world continues to structurally shift from traditional to digital media, companies are now integrating social media advertising activities and strategies into their business models. This study identifies three variables that can potentially affect Gen Z’s purchase intention towards video games, such as product trust, consumer attitude towards targeted advertising, and social media advertising activities. A Structural Equation Modelling was used for this study to determine the relationships between the variables that contribute to the overall purchase intention of Gen Z’s towards video games.

  • The Effect of Online Wet Markets Website Quality on the Purchase Intention
           of Consumers in Caloocan City

    • Authors: Christian Brazil; Stephen Brian Neri, Allan Ysmael Soriano, Carl Fritz Victorio, Jun R. Grimaldo
      Abstract: The digital age fueled the rise of Filipino internet users through text messaging and interacting through social media. In addition, users took advantage of the potential of the internet by conducting transactions online, such as purchasing, selling, and advertising products and services. Electronic commerce or e-commerce is becoming a global phenomenon, with more people opting to purchase goods and services online. E-commerce has also opened many opportunities for businesses to launch online. A wide array of products and services are being sold online, such as clothing items, home essentials, etc. The pandemic which caused restrictions in going out led to online wet markets gaining popularity. A wet market or palengke is a public market place where fresh produce, poultry, meat, fish, etc., are sold. The rise of online wet markets allowed people to purchase and receive fresh food items without having to leave the comforts of their homes. This also allows them to avoid going out and conform to existing protocols during quarantine. The study will use descriptive statistics in examining the relationship of website quality dimensions: quality of information, quality of interaction, usability, and consumer purchase intention of residents in Caloocan City. Some of the respondents were randomly selected to give intuition on the improvement of the existing research paper. The relationship between website quality and perceived risk may be deduced: the greater the website quality, the lower the perceived risk. Respondents' level of security in disclosing their information when making a transaction in an online wet market was regarded as a risk. In addition, the study found that online quality had a considerable impact on consumers' purchasing intentions. Customers' perceived risk is not taken into account when anticipating their intentions.

  • Consumer Behavior and Practices towards Green Marketing of Food

    • Authors: Mathew Hervey Lim; Chrissane Rey, Maria Patricia Zamuco, Mary Caroline Castaño
      Abstract: There are human activities that cause problems and affect other living beings negatively. One of these problems is environmental issues like depletion of resources, challenges with electricity, usage of toxic agents, pollution, and waste because of consumption. These aforementioned environmental problems have started to come to society’s concern with the natural environment; businesses have begun to modify their ways in an attempt to address these. A few developments have been integrated to address such issues. That's why green marketing and concepts emerged. Some businesses have been quick to accept concepts and have integrated concerns into all organizational activities. The changes awaken the business world and consumers regarding the responsibilities towards the environment. Consumers are now sensible to these and result preferably environment-friendly products or services. By this, it indicates that consumers are increasingly concerned and are changing their behavior. That means there is a growing market for sustainable and socially responsible products and services. In return for this behavior of the consumers, companies have started to form their marketing strategies so as to appeal to increasing awareness of this environment-friendliness named green marketing. Enterprises adopt green policies in their organizations and marketing mix, which are pricing, promotion, product, and places - distribution activities. Strategies targeting not only making a profit for the day but also for long-term profitability and environmentally friendly sustainability have started to become agendas of the companies. It holds the view that marketing which is a part of the business, not only has to satisfy customers in particular but also has to take into account the interests of society in general. This study will be conducted in order to determine what specific elements are involved with people’s choosing habits and what components do have an impact and effect on them choosing one rather than the other. It further highlights the consumer perception and awareness of green marketing in food enterprises to see how consumer behaviors are influenced and impacted by these practices. The study discusses the market for food enterprises to be utilized more within consumers that have pro-environmental preferences.

  • Brand Activism: Impact of Woke Advertising on the Consumers’ Attitude
           and Brand Perceptions Towards Purchase Intention

    • Authors: Carlos Cristobal; Alyssa Rhose Del Prado, Ansberto Cagampan, Ernesto Dimaculangan
      Abstract: As more and more consumers are becoming aware and interested in socio-political issues, brands are changing the way they advertise by communicating their stance on key issues on their advertising campaign; a strategy called woke advertising. Through this strategy, brands are taking up the responsibility of creating a lasting positive impact and meaningful contribution to society. However, instead of serving the desired purpose, some of these woke advertisements can backfire and generate negative responses. Thus, this study aims to analyze the impact of woke advertising on the consumers’ attitudes and brand perceptions towards their purchase intentions. The researchers conceptualized two (2) consumer concepts, namely 'passive woke consumers' and 'active woke consumers,' to further define what type of consumers they turn into. Moreover, the researchers conducted an experimental study to determine the changes in the behavior of the consumers before and after they see the woke advertisements. Three hundred eighty-five (385) participants from the National Capital Region were randomly selected based on the criteria developed by the researchers. Furthermore, paired t-test and descriptive analyses were utilized in analyzing the data. This study found out that woke advertisements enhance the overall consumer attitude and brand perception of Filipino consumers. However, they are not a major contributor in increasing their purchase intentions. It is then recommended for future researchers to consider studying other brands that did not have proper execution in addressing sensitive issues that caused negative feedback and controversy around the brand.

  • Factors Influencing Shopee Users’ Intention to Purchase Products during
           Shopee Philippines’ Big Online Shopping Events

    • Authors: Isabela Bacay; Roiel Anthony Ramirez, Franceline Naomi Ramos, Jun R. Grimaldo
      Abstract: The growth of E-Commerce in the Philippines has shifted dramatically at an unprecedented pace during the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing consumers to shop online. The change in consumer behavior created a domino effect both for physical stores and e-commerce platforms. With the impact on the said area, the study focused on Shopee’s big online shopping events that make the platform the #1 Online Shopping Application in the Philippines as of 2020. The study empirically observed and analyzed how the factors influenced users to participate and develop their purchase intentions, considering the ongoing pandemic, allowing the researchers to identify the gaps in an online event. The factors that were observed are Celebrity Endorsers & Social Media Influencers, Advertising Appeal, Creative Sales Promotion/s, and Timing. The study used an online survey questionnaire, allowing the researchers to gather quantitative data through Likert Scale questions or statements that asked the respondents to answer based on their level of agreement. The effectiveness of each factor and its influence on purchase intention were determined by performing Descriptive Statistics and Regression Analysis as it was revealed that creative sales promotions (offering free vouchers, providing promotional codes, discount deals, etc.) to consumers and timing of events have a significant effect on Shopee users’ purchase intention, which are ideal for marketers to use as tools to develop effective marketing strategies to attract and persuade consumers to purchase products. However, Celebrity Endorsers & Social Media Influencers and Advertising Appeal are not significant or have no influence on online shoppers’ intention to purchase. As these may not be the ideal marketing tools or strategies to persuade consumers to buy, these can be relevant when it comes to building brand image and increasing brand awareness. The findings provided online businesses with insights to influence users’ purchase intent during online shopping event sales.

  • Invasion or Personalization: An Overview on User Attitudes towards the
           Privacy Issues in Targeted Advertising in NCR and Its Effect in Consumer
           Purchase Behavior

    • Authors: Bea Andrea Antonio; Kyra Lyn Dela Cruz, Aaliyah Isis Jimenez, Earl Pantoja
      Abstract: Targeted advertising is online advertising that focuses on the behavior of the consumer to give them a specific advertisement. Literature on targeted advertising focused mainly on the strategy crossing the personal boundaries of the consumers and how fields of marketing, finance, advertising, etc., are benefitting from the algorithmic profiling of personalized advertising. Findings revealed the negative sides of personalized advertising, such as advertising irritation and negative attitudes towards targeted ads. We argue that the focus is limited; thus, we aim to determine the perception of users towards targeted advertising and utilize it to identify the influence of their perception on their purchasing behavior, examine if there is a correlation between their demographic and their perception of targeted advertising. The study site are respondents who have experience in online shopping residing in the National Capital Region of the Philippines. We were able to gather the data through disseminating Google forms and utilized the purposive sampling technique in segmenting the respondents. In the survey of N=261 respondents, the result reveals that consumers are completely concerned and interested in their personal information online but perceive targeted advertising as personalization, hence, will continue their purchase as it adds ease to their online shopping experience.

  • Mismatched Endorsement: Role of Korean Endorsers on Philippines’
           Telecommunication Brands

    • Authors: Earl Pantoja; Wennie Grace Dela Torre, Amabelle Inacay, Jadyn Gail Ornopia
      Abstract: In today’s competitive market, advertising has become crucial for businesses to establish their presence and relevance. They implement different strategies that are inclusive of the celebrity endorsement wherein businesses hire a prominent figure as a spokesperson for their brand or product. The Philippine market is no stranger to this advertising strategy and has, in fact, brought in foreign celebrities as endorsers for Filipino brands. This can be seen with the recent advertisements of Philippine telco companies Globe and Smart featuring Blackpink and BTS, respectively. However, there is a clear mismatch between the endorsers and the brands since the Korean endorsers are not users of the products of Globe and Smart. This mismatch may result in the advertisement being ineffectual, especially since previous studies have already shown that the credibility of the endorser is key in generating purchase intention from the consumers. It is for this reason that the researchers wished to determine how the mismatch influences the behavior of Filipino telco consumers. The researchers generated hypotheses for the study that were tested through confirmatory analysis. Purposive sampling was used to identify respondents, and a digital survey was sent out to gather data from the 300 respondents. Data analysis of the study was conducted through the aid of Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software. The results showed that not all Filipino consumers notice the mismatch between the Korean celebrity endorsers and Globe and Smart. Furthermore, the current study contradicted the findings of previous research regarding the source credibility model. It found that the Korean celebrity endorsers’ questionable credibility did nothing to negatively affect Globe and Smart. Rather, they further enhanced the consumers’ brand perception of the companies and positively influenced their purchase intention.

  • The Moderating Effect of the Country of Origin on Smartphones’ Brand
           Equity and Brand Preference on Customer Purchase Intention

    • Authors: Angelo Clark Castillo; Aimee Margaret Flores, Lance Matthew Sanchez, Arthur Yusay, Marie Abigail Posadas
      Abstract: A smartphone is now part of Filipino consumers' lifestyles, so smartphone brands are becoming more competitive and innovative to become the top brand in consumers' choice. There are many factors to consider in determining how Filipino consumers choose their preferred smartphone brands. As past studies show, Filipino consumers are xenocentric and prefer to buy products made internationally and not locally. The researchers focused on three (3) Independent variables and one (1) Moderating Variable to understand if Filipino consumers are xenocentric in buying smartphones. (1) Brand Preference, to understand the factors that affect their preference in buying. (2) Brand Equity, to study how the consumers value the brand. (3) Purchase Intention, to know the factors that contribute to the consumers' purchase decision, and (1) Country of Origin as moderating variable on the three (3) variables. The result revealed that the Country of Origin has no moderating influence on the three (3) Independent variables. This study used the descriptive-correlational and quantitative method in collecting data from the respondents through an online questionnaire. The survey was divided into sections to aid researchers in determining the relationship between these three variables. Country of Origin is not the priority of Filipino consumers in terms of smartphone brands. Consumers are focusing more on their Brand Preference and Brand Equity in purchasing smartphones.
