Research conclusion: the closed scene created by network live broadcasting gives full play to the aggregation and flow effect of emotional energy, and under a series of ritual chaining actions, the anchor inspires the users’ desire to buy through group solidarity, specific symbols, and conferring a sense of justice.

In order to further increase consumers’ desire to buy, anchors should fully assume the role of spiritual leaders, improve the integration of professional knowledge in the live broadcasting process, produce more original content, enhance the team’s backstage interactive support, and enhance the online adhesion with users through digital props and concessions.
