Utilizing structural equation modeling to analyze data from 358 respondents, the research examines the effects of transactional and transformational leadership on engagement, with organizational commitment and psychological ownership as mediators. Results indicate a significant positive impact of leadership style on employee engagement, organizational commitment, and psychological ownership. Leadership style directly predicts employee engagement (β = 0.80, p &lt; .001), while also influencing engagement indirectly through organizational commitment (β = 0.25, p &lt; .001) and psychological ownership (β = 0.39, p &lt; .001). These findings underscore the importance of leadership style in enhancing engagement within the digital economy, highlighting the mediating roles of organizational commitment and psychological ownership. This study contributes to the literature by elucidating the mechanisms through which leadership influences engagement in digital contexts, offering insights for leaders to foster a more committed and psychologically invested workforce.</p> 2024-05-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Authors THE INFLUENCE OF SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING ON PURCHASE INTENTIONS THROUGH CONSUMER ENGAGEMENT 2024-04-23T13:02:57+07:00 Yue HUANG Chanchai BUNCHAPATTANASAKDA Lu SUO Boonyaporn Boonmek <p>This study establishes a model of users' purchase intention in the context of social media marketing based on the Uses and Gratifications Theory. It explores the effects of the five dimensions of social media marketing: entertainment, customization, interactivity, electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) and trendiness on the three different levels of user engagement: consumption-based participation, contribution-based participation and creation-based participation. Using an online survey with convenience sampling approach, the study collects data from 469 Chinese adults’ consumers who are experienced Weibo social-media users. Structural equation modelling was used to test the links between social-media-marketing elements, consumer engagement and purchase intention. The results show that, first, interactivity and eWOM have significant positive effects on the three dimensions of user engagement, but entertainment, customization, and trendiness only have significant positive effects on consumption-based participation, contribution-based participation, and not on creation-based participation. Furthermore, both consumption-based participation and contribution-based participation have a significant positive effect on purchase intention, while creation-based participation has a non-significant effect. This research not only enriches theoretically the relationship between social media marketing, consumer engagement, and purchase intention, but also provides guidance for brand enterprise to improve their social media marketing in practice.</p> 2024-06-06T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Authors AN IN-DEPTH EXPLORATION OF THE NEXUS BETWEEN GREEN MARKETING, PERCEIVED ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY, AND GREEN PURCHASE INTENTIONS 2024-05-23T20:35:29+07:00 Kristiya MOONSRI <p>This research aims to investigate and compare personal factors that influence the intention to purchase environmentally friendly products, as well as examine green marketing, perceptions of environmental responsibility, and consumers' purchase intentions for these products. This research applied the quantitative method to collect data from 400 consumers who had purchased environmentally friendly products. Statistics used in data analysis included percentage, mean, standard deviation, frequency, t-test, F-test, and multiple regression analysis. The results indicate that different personal factors have no different effect on the intention to purchase environmentally friendly products. Perceived environmental responsibility and green marketing (green price, green product, and green place) affect the intention to purchase environmentally friendly products. Entrepreneurs or marketing departments can use the results of this research as a strategy to create consumers' purchase intentions for environmentally friendly products.</p> 2024-06-20T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Authors MARKET STRUCTURE AND COMPETITIVE BEHAVIOR OF THAILAND'S CANNABIS CULTIVATION INDUSTRY 2024-05-29T19:06:03+07:00 Siriyaporn KANHACHON Watcharapong RATISUKPIMOL <p>The legalization of cannabis for medical and industrial use in Thailand in 2019 sparked growth in the cannabis cultivation sector. This transformative shift led to changes in market dynamics, influencing the industry's competitive behavior. This study examines the market structure and competitive behavior of Thailand's cannabis cultivation sector from 2019 to 2021, post-decriminalization. It assesses the market structure, focusing on the industry concentration and competitive dynamics, using the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index (HHI) to quantify cannabis cultivation area concentration. Results show an annual increase in the number of market firms, notably in 2021, with community enterprises surging by 291 since 2019. Cannabis cultivation expanded across all regions, indicating heightened market competition, and midstream-downstream industries were significantly related to cannabis farm presence in each district (P-value 0.004). HHI analysis reveals an average of 3,259.23 from 2019 to 2021, identifying a deconcentrated market in 2021, with increasing competition rates yearly. Findings suggest market behavior characterized by rising competition, expanding firms—especially community enterprises—and widespread cannabis cultivation farm distribution nationwide.</p> 2024-06-22T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Authors
