The prevalence of Internet use allows brand admirers to take advantage of this online platform and build virtual communities centered around brands. These virtual brand communities not only function as information exchange centers for brand lovers, but member interaction within them also fulfills human social needs. To the enterprises, they are the touch points for direct communication with customers, as well as the ideal environment to cultivate brand loyalty. However, previous studies have mainly focused on community participation and brand relationship, and overlooked the influence of web quality. Hence, this research has taken on viewpoints from both social relation and web technology, and combined brand community integration, web quality, community identification, and community commitment to discuss how brand loyalty is formed under the virtual brand community context.
Four smart phone brand communities (Apple, HTC, Nokia, and Samsung) built on Sogi were chosen to be the research targets. A total of 400 online questionnaires were delivered, and 247 responses were received. The response rate is 61.75 percent. A structural equation model was built and estimated, and the results show that brand community integration has a significant and positive influence on both community identification and brand loyalty. Community identification and web quality also show positive and high relevance towards community commitment. Furthermore, community commitment is proven to be a positive influence on brand loyalty. In sum, this research provides an integrated brand community model for the existing marketing literature, and helps marketers to get a better understanding of how virtual brand communities enhance brand loyalty.

本研究選擇Sogi! 手機王網站的智慧型手機品牌社群(Apple, HTC, Nokia, Samsung)為研究對象,共計發出400份線上問卷,回收247份,回收率為61.75%。經過結構方程模式分析,本研究發現品牌社群整合對社群認同和品牌忠誠都有顯著的正向影響,而社群認同及網路品質皆正向影響社群承諾,社群承諾則對品牌忠誠有正向影響效果。研究結果顯示虛擬品牌社群中成員與品牌、產品、企業及其他成員間的關係,以及該社群的資訊品質、系統品質和服務品質,會直接或間接提升成員的品牌忠誠。綜合上述,此研究提供研究者一個整合性的品牌社群模式,並可協助企業了解虛擬品牌社群如何強化品牌忠誠。
