Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2012 in the subject Communications - Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, grade: 1.0, University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven, language: English, abstract: Hardly any online advertising effort becomes as important for entrepreneurship accomplishments as Search Engine Marketing. That's surprising marginally, because Search Engines are the single point of contact for customer investigation and information. On that score SEM is one of the most important tools to generate specifically leads. By the side of all online marketing measures, for example keyword advertising, SEO or SEA, the international SEM with YouTube videos is first and foremost the fastest-growing and by far promising opportunity, to establish qualified leads. In addition country-specific advertising messages are completed with corresponding keywords and well-placed with YouTube videos in local Search Engines, to achieve qualified groups of customers, who are in search of new products or services. Marketing specialists analyze and advance the achieved results simultaneously and adjust their marketing strategies immediately. As a consequence there is a better cost planning, target groups are scaled more precisely and the cost-benefit ratio is a sight better for both B2B and B2C. The obvious questions are: what business motivations give evidence of a fruitful cooperation at the hands of international SEM and YouTube videos? Which contents and keywords convert YouTube videos into a guarantee for success and which are critically for a profitable SEM? And after all, which customer is searching where, for what and why? These and further questions will be examined and clarified over the course of the next following sites.
