Liderazgo de opinión, innovación y actitud de los consumidores de moda portugueses

Paulo Ribeiro Cardoso, Sandrina Teixeira, Ana Luísa Santos

Resumen

Este estudio tiene como principal objetivo analizar el liderazgo de opinión en el contexto del mercado de la moda, más concretamente, verificar si existe una correlación entre las variables liderazgo de opinión, adhesión a la innovación en la moda y actitud hacia la publicidad de la moda. A partir dela variable liderazgo de opinión, se pretende también identificar dos grupos diferentes de consumidores: los líderes de opinión y los seguidores en el mercado de la moda. Se seleccionaron 203 estudiantes de tercer ciclo y de postgrado de dos universidades de Oporto, la segunda ciudad más grande de Portugal. Fue solicitado a los participantes que rellenasen un cuestionario sobre actitudes y comportamientos sobre moda. Los resultados muestran que existe una correlación positiva entre la adhesión a la innovación, el liderazgo de opinión y la actitud hacia la publicidad. Fue posible identificar dos grupos de consumidores. Por un lado, “los influyentes”, que puntúan moderadamente en la variable adhesión a la innovación y presentan una actitud positiva hacia la publicidad de la moda, y por otro, “los seguidores”, que no se consideran ni innovadores ni líderes de opinión, pero mantienen una actitud positiva moderada hacia la publicidad de la moda.
