In this study, a framework is developed that can be used to build “Web equity”, which is defined as consumer familiarity and perceptions about a Web site. The framework is rooted in traditional brand equity dimensions (brand awareness and brand image) and is supported by four categories of factors identified as important to consumers in building value in online companies: marketer and non‐marketer communications, Web site design, vendor characteristics, and product/service characteristics. How these factors impact consumer awareness and image of a dot.com are discussed and ways in which online companies can effectively use these tools to develop strong Web equity are suggested.
