Does Augmented Reality Really Engage Consumers? Exploring AR Driven Consumer Engagement
This study explores how consumer involvement affects their engagement in mobile stores (m-stores) and thus leads to intention to purchase through m-stores. Applying Consumer Brand Engagement model (CBE) as the theoretical lens, we show that consumer involvement leads to consumer m-store usage intention through consumer m-store engagement (CSE). Findings contribute to the existing literature by elaborating the underlying mechanism of consumer adoption, involvement, and engagement of AR mobile apps and m-stores. Practically, our study findings provide an insight to retailers that interactive technology may serve as a new tool to engage consumers emotionally and cognitively in the digital era.
