In the context of online purchasing, these atmospheric variables answer web users’ queries and consequently influence their behavioral responses. The present survey targets the study of the impact of a website’s atmospheric dimensions (readability and design) on the web user’s attitude toward the brand. The study is about an online event created by Tunisiana versus Ooredoo (a private telecommunications operator in Tunisia) following the commercial rebranding that aimed at unifying the group and subsidiaries within one brand. The survey was conducted using administered questionnaire next to a convenience sample of 200 web users.
