of Social Media Marketing Activities (SMMA) in enhancing customer
satisfaction and co-creation of local brands from the Schematic Perspective
Theory. Specifically, this research aims to analyse the effect of SMMA on
brand awareness and brand image, and the impact of brand image on

Design/Methodology/Approach: This research was designed with
a survey method which involved 316 respondents, and the data was
analysed using partial least squares structural equation modeling, with
the WarpPLS 7.0 software.
Research findings: The findings indicated that the effect of SMMA is
positively significant on customer brand awareness and brand image. And
brand image, in turn, has a positively significant effect on satisfaction,
and satisfaction has an impact on customer co-creation. This research
also found that satisfaction has an important role in mediation, that also

Theoretical contribution/Originality: This study theoretically contributes
