But how expensive are the areas of online marketing, e-commerce, technology and social media in Germany?

Despite the big competition from Facebook, for many companies Google is still the most relevant marketing platform. If you place your ads on top of Google, you’ll usually get a lot of attention.

In return, the responsible marketing managers sometimes have to dig deep into their pockets to land in the first position.

Particularly hard-fought are the paid front placements at Google in the areas of online marketing, social media, technology and e-commerce.
