Abstract

Brand communities offer the promise of a marketing program that is synergistic with the intrinsic motivations, interests, and empowerment of contemporary consumers. Widely applicable and increasingly used by mainstream consumers across a range of product and service categories, they represent avenues for marketers to generate a range of positive outcomes for the firm in cost-effective ways. For consumer researchers, brand communities are venues to study a host of psychological and social issues. In this article, we elaborate on this concept by providing a definition of brand community, introduce and elaborate on different types of brand communities, and examine the consequences of consumer participation in them.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
