This study demonstrates the design of a persuasive mobile application aiming to encourage children below 12 years old to take care of their teeth and increase their awareness towards the importance of dental care. We applied a design thinking approach which comprised of five different phases: empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test. A total of 13 children participated in this study. The findings show that children found that the application informs them how to brush their teeth properly and increases their awareness about the importance of dental care. This indicates that the design thinking approach is indeed useful for the designer to design a persuasive application aiming to change children’s behaviour.</em></p> Noor Hazwani Mohamad Puad, Nurul Amirah Rahim, Khadijah Hanis Ahmad Firdaus, Nawda Sayedi, Hazwani Mohd Mohadis Copyright (c) 2020 Journal of Marketing and Information Systems Tue, 04 Feb 2020 03:58:34 +0000 Influence of Service Quality on Customer Satisfaction and Customer Loyalty in the Private Banking Sector of Bangladesh: A PLS Approach <p><em>In this competitive business era, the key strategy for the success and survival of any business organization is the deliverance of quality services to customers because service quality has beneficial effect on the bottom-line performance for the organization.
