Abstract

This paper examines the factors influencing the intention to use mobile marketing among young consumers in Malaysia. This study employed the decomposed theory of reasoned action as underpinning theory in explaining intention to use. The survey was conducted using self-administered questionnaire. A total of 500 questionnaires were distributed but only 277 were usable with a response rate of 58%. Results of the study revealed that attitude and subjective norm have a direct positive relationship with intention to use mobile marketing. Attitude was significantly influenced by three antecedents namely perceived usefulness, perceived enjoyment and perceived image. Perceived ease of use showed different findings. Subjective norm was significantly influenced by friends and family influence as two antecedents. The proposed model can shed light on the important factors determining the behavioral intention to use mobile marketing and will aid managers understand and identify the specific antecedents of attitude and subjective norm that may influence consumers’ acceptance of mobile marketing.
