Abstract: This research aims (i) to explore the influence of an individual’s attitude towards advertising, brand origin and country of manufacture on brand equity creation; and (ii) to analyse brand typicality as moderating the effect of brand origin macro image on perceived quality. A conceptual model is proposed and applied to a sample of 305 Portuguese consumers of Smartphones. The proposed model was tested considering Apple, Nokia and Samsung. The results show that individuals' attitudes towards advertisements has a positive impact on brand equity creation, whereas country of manufacture does not influence significantly and brand origin has only a partial influence. Brand typicality exerts a significant direct effect on brand equity dimensions but does not have a significant moderating effect.
