web-based marketing among small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Malaysia is still in its
infancy. This study intends to investigate the factors that influence social media marketing
adoption among Muslim SMEs at Malacca City. Therefore, there are four determining factors
which are security, ease of use, management’s attitude and general knowledge constitute the
central focus of the theoretical framework in this study.
A quantitative survey was developed to gather data from 78 Muslim SMEs employees in
Malacca Tengah in relation to factors that would influence social media marketing adoption
among Muslim SMEs. Findings from this study revealed that the proposed framework could be
used to understand the factors influencing social media marketing adoption by Muslim SMEs in
