Abstract

Penelitian ini dilatarbelakangi oleh meningkatnya persaingan di pasar ponsel cerdas. Terlepas dari popularitas iPhone ketika perusahaan memperkenalkan iPhone untuk pertama kalinya pada tahun 2007, iPhone telah mengalami persaingan ketat dari produsen smartphone lainnya. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui pengaruh ekuitas merek dan kepuasan pelanggan terhadap niat beli konsumen produk iPhone. Elemen ekuitas merek yang digunakan dalam penelitian ini adalah kesadaran merek, kualitas persepsi, kepuasan pelanggan, dan loyalitas merek. Penelitian ini dilakukan dengan menyebarkan kuesioner kepada sembilan puluh enam responden dengan menggunakan purposive sampling. Responden adalah orang yang saat ini menggunakan produk iPhone. Data dianalisis dengan menggunakan analisis kuantitatif. Analisis kuantitatif terdiri dari uji validitas dan reliabilitas, uji asumsi klasik, analisis regresi berganda, pengujian hipotesis dengan uji F dan uji t, serta analisis koefisien determinasi (R). Dari hasil penelitian dapat disimpulkan, bahwa kepuasan pelanggan dan loyalitas merek merupakan elemen utama konsumen membeli merek iphone. Sedangkan kesadaran merek dan kualitas persepsi tidak berpengaruh dalam faktor pembelian.
