With time passing, these long-term brand experiences will store in the memory of consumers and thereby affect consumers’ satisfaction and loyalty (Oliver, 1997; Reicheld, 1996). With the coming era of brand experience, except for understanding the functional attributes of products, it is vital to explore that brings wonderful experiences for customers could obtain more positive influence. The research is mainly exploring the relationship between brand experience and loyalty, which include three steps of loyalty (cognition loyalty, affection loyalty and conation loyalty). Finally, we put a moderator, country affinity, to see whether country affinity will have the moderating effect or not. The participant is mainly focus on Starbucks consumers who over 25 years old in Taipei City. The total retrieve questionnaire is 343, after removing invalid questionnaire, the valid questionnaire is 312, and the valid questionnaire is 90.96%.
The results show the effect of brand experience on three different kinds of loyalty have distinct results, especially the effect on affective loyalty and conative loyalty are influenced by satisfaction, which is inconsistent with former research. This conclusion helps to explain the former research studies which indicated that the direct or indirect effect of brand experience to loyalty. In addition, this research discovered that the effect of brand experience on affective loyalty and conative loyalty are influenced by satisfaction. The probable reason is that the effect of brand experience to loyalty may differ from products categorization. As for experience product of Starbucks, the effects of brand experience on affective and conative loyalty are through satisfaction. Thus, this research provides empirical support that “When exploring the effect of brand experience to loyalty should separate into three kinds of loyalty.” The result also discovers country affinity has the moderating effect between satisfaction and cognitive loyalty.
