MetadataShow full item record
This paper aims to examine the antecedents of purchase intention for their differential impacts between prototypical and metoobrands in the banking industry. To achieve this, a pen and paper survey was administered to a random sample of thepopulation in Western Australia. For the prototypical brands, extrinsic attributes and perceived risk played influential roles,with extrinsic attributes directly and positively and perceived risk directly and negatively impacting on purchase intention.This raises some concern for the prototypical brand as it suggests that it is highly dependent on its extrinsic attributes toappeal to consumers. For the me-too brands, perceived quality positively mediated the brand familiarity-purchase intentionrelationship. This is encouraging for the me-too brands as it suggests that in a marketplace where banks are viewed withsuspicion, smaller, community me-too brands that are familiar to consumers, enjoy a reputation for service quality thatimpacts positively on purchase intention.
