The Covid-19 pandemic has triggered a significant increase of social media users in Indonesia and driven companies to shift their marketing activities online. Past studies related to social media marketing activities have much focused on luxury brands from large companies and less focused on local brands from small medium enterprises. The purpose of the research is to measure the impact of Social Media Marketing Activities (SMMAs) on consumer intention to purchase of small local apparel brand companies in Indonesia. The information was gathered via online questionnaires to consumers who follow local apparel brand accounts on social media. 400 customers have responded and the data were used for further analysis. This study used partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) to test the hypotheses. The results show that SMMA variables have a positive impact on intention to purchase. This research adds to our knowledge of the SMMAs theory in the context of small local apparel brand companies. The companies may use the results of the study to enhance their products selling in the market.
