Resumen

El objetivo del presente artículo fue identificar los determinantes de la conciencia de marca y el impacto que esta tiene en la comunicación boca a boca. El estudio se realizó usando la técnica de ecuaciones estructurales y los datos fueron recolectados a partir de una encuesta que se aplicó a la muestra validada, conformada por 208 usuarios de redes sociales en México. Los resultados confirmaron un efecto positivo y significativo de la calidad de la información en la conciencia de marca y, a su vez, se demostró el efecto directo de la conciencia de marca en la comunicación boca a boca. Dichos resultados permitirán a las empresas identificar los elementos necesarios para la fidelización y el proceso de captación de nuevos clientes.
