It is said that customers buy not products but brands embedded in their mind, so that they are used as a key tool of strong marketing strategy. The present paper is a study on service brand equity, on which much research has not been conducted. The purpose of the present study is to propose the way to manage service brand equity which is essential to gaining competitive superiority by examining the effect of the factors of marketing communication on it. The researcher presented a research model by inquiring into existing researches on marketing communication and service brand equity and set up a research hypothesis. Internet service was chosen as the subject of the study. The reason for this is that it is the most intangible and there is no difference in price and quality, so that it is actively being marketed. The present positive study verified the relation between the factors of marketing communication such as advertising, public relations, sales promotion, and word-of-mouth advertising and brand recognition, brand image, and brand loyalty. The results of the positive study are as follows. Advertising, sales promotion and word-of-mouth advertising had an effect on brand recognition. Public relations, sales promotion and word-of-mouth advertising had an effect on brand image. Brand image and brand recognition affected brand loyalty.
