Abstract

Understanding and working towards developing positive attitudes has been an area of consumer research that has received much attention. This study contributes to consumer research by examining the influence of brand status, brand significance and brand value on the development of positive attitudes towards brands. Groups of generation Y, Australian mobile phone users were surveyed and it was found that brand significance more strongly influenced brand value and attitude toward the brand, than the influence of brand status; and that this effect was stronger in the market leader, Nokia, than for a market follower, Samsung.
