This study examines the effectiveness of Quick Response (QR) code loyalty campaigns in two phases. In Study 1, qualitative perceptions of QR code are examined through key informant focus groups. Participants express their positive as well as negative opinions about the use of QR code. In Study 2, we examine the effectiveness of QR code loyalty campaigns in “winning back” inactive customers in terms of repeat purchases. The study manipulates information privacy concerns, level of involvement, and timing of rewards. Results from a scenario-based experiment suggest that when consumers are concerned with privacy disclosure, delayed rewards, rather than immediate rewards, induce greater loyalty among inactive consumers. By the same token, a low-involvement service, rather than a high-involvement service, is likely to develop greater loyalty. Furthermore, there is a significant interaction effect between the timing of the reward and the level of involvement. However, when consumers are not concerned with privacy, neither main effects nor interaction effects are observed. In closing, implications are discussed while limitations are recognized and future research is suggested.

ABSTRACT As an emerging service, location-based services (LBS) have not received wide adoption among users. Drawing on both perspectives of Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) and privacy risk, this research examined user adoption of LBS. We conducted data analysis with structural equation modeling. The results indicated that usage intention is affected by both enablers such as performance expectancy and inhibitors such as perceived risk. This implies that service provider...

In this increasingly interconnected world, it is second nature for people to communicate, socialise and share information through a huge number of media platforms, often simultaneously. Technology to support this is constantly progressing, with new mechanisms emerging all the time. People are quick to adopt the newest communication mechanisms such as instant messaging services, social networking platforms such as Facebook and photo sharing sites such as Flickr. As new technologies emerge, they b...

From inventory management in stores to automotive part tracking in assembly plants, barcodes are one of the most prevalent automatic identification and data capture technologies. This book provides a complete introduction to barcodes for mobile devices, presenting the most relevant and up-to-date information previously unavailable elsewhere or difficult to obtain. The focus throughout is on recent developments and two-dimensional (2D) barcodes, including the research and development steps toward...

This study explores the consequences of consumers' privacy concerns in the context of mobile advertising. Drawing on social contract theory, the proposed research model connects a series of psychological factors (prior negative experience, information privacy concerns, perceived ubiquity, trust, and perceived risk) and preference for degree of regulatory control. Data from a survey of 510 mobile phone users in Japan show that mobile users with prior negative experiences with information disclosu...

ABSTRACT How does trust affect consumer attitudes and recall in mobile advertising? This study explores this question by conducting a large-scale “pseudo” mobile advertising campaign in Japan. Two “real” brands (one durable and one nondurable good) of major Japanese manufacturers were used as study stimuli. Using a push messaging service, both a campaign message and a subsequent questionnaire for each brand were sent to 40,000 opt-in mobile users. Five primary constructs were examined: brand tru...

This study, set in a credit card context, examines the impact of loyalty programs on share of wallet and explores the moderating role of attitudinal loyalty on this relationship. The authors are particularly interested in two characteristics of reward programs: their perceived attractiveness and perceived switching costs between loyalty programs. Their findings suggest that perceived switching costs are highly effective in driving share of wallet at low rather than high levels of attitudinal loy...

We use the Power–Responsibility Equilibrium (PRE) framework and advance that consumers balance perceived deficits in privacy protection by power holders (businesses and regulators) with defensive actions. In our model, consumer privacy concern is the endogenous mediating entity linking business policy and regulatory perceptions to negative online user responses. The model was empirically tested and confirmed in an experimental setting. In a second study, we added the nature of consumer informati...

This study focuses on the perceived utilitarian value of a new service delivery mode, the mobile channel. The authors develop a framework that incorporates three mode-specific benefits – time convenience, user control, and service compatibility – as well as two costs – perceived risk and cognitive effort – as antecedents of perceived value. Because of the pervasiveness of time criticality as a value-added characteristic of the mobile channel, they also investigate the moderating influence of con...
This study used confirmatory factor analysis on responses from a random sample of 459 New Zealanders to examine the theoretical basis of the concern for information privacy. The results were interpreted using two competing theories to explain differences found in the structural model of the construct when testing it with a non-US sample. Differences between US and New Zealand privacy protection approaches reflected cross-national differences in privacy concerns. The findings should contribute to...

While reward programs have been widely used as a means to engender customer loyalty, it is not clear if the ends are justified. Some researchers argue that we do not fully understand the mechanism underlying reward programs and how it affects consumer acceptability of such programs. In this study, we examine two variables; timing (immediate vs. delayed) and type (direct vs. indirect) of rewards in two service conditions (satisfied vs. dissatisfied). We conduct the experiment in two service setti...

With smart phone technology becoming increasingly widespread in the consumption space, the use of Visual Scan Codes (VSC) such as QR (Quick Response) or Shazam codes are becoming prominent interactive tools transforming traditional advertising into more engaging and responsive communication platforms. To examine the effects of the presence of these codes, this study uses a (2x2) between-subjects experimental design with treatment groups for code type (QR code active vs. QR code static) and code ...

This paper describes the usage of QR codes in a web based system that was developed for the needs of promotion and electronic market research. QR codes can be used in several ways and they provide an opportunity to make various researches that emphasize people's reactions or people's answers. The greatest dilemma is how to present QR codes in order to attract the users' attention. For the needs of this research, a pilot version of the web based multiplatform application was made to detect users ...
