Gül EKİNCİ [1] , Burhan AKYILMAZ [2]


ÖZ Bu çalışmada ilk kez Aralık 2019’da görülen ve tüm dünyayı etkisi altına alan özel bir aşı veya tedavisi bulunmayan yaklaşık Eylül 2020 tarihi itibariyle bir milyona yakın ölüme neden olan Covid-19 (WHO, 2020f) kürsel salgının tüketici davranışı üzerindeki etkisi araştırılmıştır. Covid-19 Pandemi sürecinin tüketiciler üzerinde Covid-19 korkusu (genel korkusu ve aktivite korkusu), sosyal medya kullanımı (instagram, twitter vb) ve dijital kanal kullanımı (online bankacılık, online ödeme, sanal kart, sanal cüzdan, online alışveriş siteleri) arasındaki ilişki test edilmiştir. Bu bağlamda Türk tüketicilerle az sayıda çalışmanın olduğu konuyla ilgili olarak sosyal ağlarda (Twitter, LinkedIn) paylaşılan bağlantı aracılığıyla likert ölçeği ve açık uçlu sorular kullanılarak online anket formatında Google Form anket portalı üzerinde elde edilen 385 verinin Google Form ve SPSS programında (Anova, Regresyon) analizi yapılmıştır. Yapılan analizler sonucunda korku(genel korkusu ve aktivite korkusu), sosyal medya kullanımı (instagram, twitter vb) ve dijital kanal kullanımı değişkenleri arasında anlamlı ilişkiler bulunmuştur. Araştırma sonuçlarına göre, tüketicilerin Covid-19 korkusu arttıkça dijital kanal kullanımı (online bankacılık, online ödeme, sanal kart vb,online alışveriş) ve sosyal medya kullanım oranı artmaktadır.

In this context, 385 data that have been obtained via Google Formsurvey portal in online survey format by using Likert scale and open-ended questions through the link shared on social networks, (Twitter, LinkedIn) where there are few studies with Turkish consumers, have been analyzed in Google Form and SPSS programmes (Anova, Regression). At the end of the analysis, meaningful relations have been found between the variables offear (general fear of the virus and fear of activity), the use of social media (instagram, twitter etc.), and the use of digital platform.
