|Abstract:||The phenomenon of be engaged and participate in brand communities is not yet well–known. This study carries out a systematic literature review to get the major construct that could explain the mentioned phenomenon and the consequences to the brand. Therefore, the aim of this study is to contribute for a better understanding of antecedents and impacts of engagement and participation in brand communities. Data was collected using an online survey. The link of the questionnaire was sent through the community websites to all registered members of brand communities in study. The findings reveal that brand relationship quality is an important initiator of the process, together with the brand identification, the presence of other members and satisfaction. Being engaged, a member tends to be more active in participating in the community, which in turn improve the brand knowledge, the brand loyalty and word–of–mouth.|
