Influencer marketing och köpintention på Instagram : En studie om hur konsumenters köpintention påverkas av influencer marketing
Sammanfattning: The presented bachelor thesis investigates which aspects of influencer marketing may affect the purchase intentions of women in the ages between 18-30 years. The study was conducted by interviews and questionnaires with a focus of attention on consumer shopping habits and Instagram usage. To analyse the collected data, we have applied relevant theories from the research fields of marketing, semiotics and cognition. This formed the theoretical basis when studying respondents answers and allowed identifying the factors that could affect their purchase intentions. The results showed that there was one factor that acted as a direct stimulant of the purchase intention, while four other factors had an indirect effect. The salient aspect was shown to be "consumer attitude" which marked itself as a dominant factor throughout the whole evaluation process. The other aspects of "source credibility", "source attractiveness", "product match-up" and "meaning transfer" where shown to have a combined impact on the purchase intentions, although no individual parameter could be shown as directly influential on its own. The study also revealed that the metric "meaning transfer" contained several underlying variables. These variables were shown to be linked to both cognition and semiotics as the image composition was able to stimulate the consumer attitude which was the dominant factor relating to purchase intention.
