Start Paying Your Social Media Manager Better

You may think a job managing social media accounts is nothing but playing online all day, but it is actual work.  Sure, it’s not the same level of backbreaking work as working in a coal mine, but how many coal mines are even operational anymore?  Work is work, and social media managers are doing an actual job that needs to be done.  So how much do they actually get paid?

While there are still plenty of organizations that leave their social media to unpaid interns, there are just as many if not more that treat the job seriously.  Social media managers in top markets can make as much as $90,000 a year.  Other digital marketing creatives can make similar salaries.  From UX and web developers to graphic designers, the salaries vary from market to market, but these professionals are getting paid what they are worth.  Learn more about the salary ranges for digital marketing creatives from this interactive infographic!
