Utilizing YouTube for enhancing marketing endeavours is a strategy practiced by marketing professionals across a growing number of industries.

A non-participant netnographic investigation of virtual communities through a content analysis has been applied in this article to investigate the research questions. The contribution includes the application of an extended typology of virtual communities to YouTube leading to a number of managerial implications for marketing practice on using YouTube as an effective marketing tool.
