Employing a Relationship Perspective to Determine Customer Engagement Value in Service Contexts

We test whether consumers’ relational models for a service firm structure how consumers engage with the firm, thus generating different types of customer engagement value for the firm. Our research is grounded in Alan P. Fiske’s (1991) Relational Models Framework and Kumar et al.’s (2010) typology of customer engagement value.
