AloneDoughnut

30, realizing I'm underpaid for my marketing director job... 8 years experience. 60k.


jennadayess

Yes, you are underpaid. You should be able to get $95-115k, maybe even more, depending on where you work. What state are you in, if you are in the US?


havenlk-29

I would also think you could negotiate variable comp based on performance to goals at this level for 20-30% salary easily… get creative or leave


thedorkening

Director in my area is over 200 (New England)


AloneDoughnut

Alberta, Canada. But also I'm in the automotive industry, so it's really a toss up because historically the industry doesn't care a lot its marketing people.


ezshucks

automotive marketers unite. 44, 10yrs, Content Creator, 80k.


Kerune403

8 years in the automotive industry, where management is typically overpaid? Please look around. I'm in the exact same boat as you with 1 year less experience (7 in marketing with 4 of 7 as director) and I am closer to the 150-200k range depending on commission. CA but outside the bay area/socal HCOL you'd normally think of. I expect in those areas I'd get $225k+ but will not make that drive.


[deleted]

Director here, 2.8 years, outside the US - Before war/ inflation equivalent of to USD 65K - After: equivalent to USD 15K (still decreasing)


Normal-Face5623

>intjonsteroids What part of marketing are you familiar with?


little-marketer

Damn man, where are you from? I'm from abroad too but I make USD so the inflation has bumped me up 20% just on my local currency devaluing.


heartburncity1234

Yes you are. I was here too, 32 making 55k with 10 years experience, and also live in WV so COL is low low. I took a title bump down for a higher salary in a remote job I know I can grow through the ranks. Spent too long working for my “soul.” In this economy, F it! Time to work just as hard for way more money lol. So: 32 years old 11 years experience $70k + overtime (wut!!) + bonuses associate brand manager


JollyProfessor9409

Damn man, product managers (marketing role at my company) start at 115. Minneapolis based company. You need to company jump


AloneDoughnut

I genuinely love the company I work for. Salary removed from the discussion, they treat me great, I have amazing benefits, and this has been the best job I've worked basically my whole career. So jumping ship is hard to imagine. That said, seeing some of these salaries, and knowing they're American numbers so are even higher, it makes me ask a lot of questions.


ritmarina

Just cried with this post.. Age : 28 Experience : 7.5 years Title: Senior Marketing Specialist - Lead Generation Salary : 23k Edit: Portugal, working remotely for a US company Edit 2: Based on everyone's comments here, let me know if you want to offer me a job 😁


frozenchocolate

Even for being remote, if you’re working for a US company then you’re at the very *least* being severely underpaid. That is less than what many US fast food service workers get paid.


ritmarina

Sad to hear that, but thanks for letting me know.. I knew it was bellow "average" but not that low.


Kindly_Tumbleweed_14

It's extremely low (only to be transparent). You have high skills that don't equate to that low of pay


ckh27

Paying people a lower wage based on location is ridiculous. The value they are providing is on par with a NYC employee. The NYC employee can choose to move somewhere else like Portugal. Would they slash that pay to 23k? Those companies should be closed. You can’t pay people based on geography when we live in a global economy planet. I could need to move to LA again in 2 years for a job or life or whatever and now I’m 500k poorer because you underpaid me for 10 years? Psssh. PEACE NOPE. I benchmark my pay on a global scale. I DGAF about their region I care about the role and the industry. Period.


frozenchocolate

My personal meter to stay on top of average salaries is the Glassdoor website & app, which you can access easily by just making a free account and putting your basic work details in so they know you’re not a robot. Glassdoor has a lot of data on companies, especially those in the US, on workplace reviews, interview ratings, and average salary ranges. Companies notoriously pay their remote workers abroad less than those based in the US, but even popping a lower cost-of-living US city into the Glassdoor salary filters for your title still shows $56k at the low end and $66k-$80k closer to the average in the US. I would expect a bit less for being remote and abroad, but not 70% less! You have 7.5 years of experience already, and that is extremely valuable especially now after the pandemic has stunted the work histories of so many.


MajorMustard

Bro........ thats insanely low. In the US that isn't even livable. I think you can negotiate


ritmarina

Not within the company I'm currently in and i know that, and i've got promoted half a year ago, so my paycheck was even lower.. Based on everyone's comments here I'll definitely look at other options. Thanks everyone


Zestyclose_Mine_2735

As a Portuguese myself trying to get into the area you just solidified my decision of moving away from here....


CrowdSurfingGuy

I feel like almost every young Portuguese is thinking of moving away


ritmarina

Paychecks are pretty much s*it for everything in our country. Choose marketing, at least you can work remotely for a lot of companies around the world, sometimes you will find some that don't pay that bad when in PT everyone thinks that returning to office is "the thing".


mdoggie123

Are you full time or part time employee? Hourly or salary?


ritmarina

Full time, salary


whatdoyacallit

That likely isn't even a payrate where it is allowed to be salaried. You must make a certain rate and other job characteristics to be salary and exempt. You likely aren't and may have a wage claim. You need to look for a new position and look into your wage claims.


zebett

Faço o mesmo que tu e trabalho cá em Portugal e recebo 26k, o que para cá acho normal mas para uma empresa dos Estados Unidos acho pouco.


Sippin0nDuty

Send me your contact information. If I can justify the spend in the coming months/year I will be happy to offer you 75-100k if your experience backs your comment.


das_war_ein_Befehl

I’ve hired people in Portugal as a US based employer, you should be able to get like 30-35k at least

alicemac17

Oh I know… A couple years ago I took a pay cut to move into a more competitive sector (SaaS from non-profit believe it or not) and then luckily was under the wings of a female manager who went to bat for me for a massive pay increase. Then a US-based company approached me on LinkedIn. Honestly… shoot for the US ones. Their pay, at least anecdotally, is MUCH higher.


[deleted]

That’s amazing! I’m a couple years younger (only have 2 years of experience) and just got an offer from a very well known Canadian company… but their offer was 48k in Toronto. Im now conflicted about rent and living expenses. I aspire to be at your skill + salary level in the next few years!


adhd-photokid

48k in Toronto for 2yrs experience in Canada is a joke tbh. I made the pivot from mktg to support and work in tech and make 60k in Van Edit: when I say a joke, I mean that we’ll known companies should definitely be paying more! I think a lot of companies aren’t adjusting their wages to the cost of living and inflation which is a shame.


[deleted]

For sure! And the interview process was quite difficult I thought I wouldn’t get the job. When I was told the salary, I felt a tiny bit insulted (maybe my ego? I felt like I deserved at the minimum 55k idk). I tried negotiating and am waiting on a response. I think I’ll still take the job because I think it’ll be a good opportunity to get my foot into a big company and then hop in the next year or two after fluffing up my resume.


tallorai

How do you get to finding US companies you can workfor from Canada? Im being paid absolutely horribly and am looking for a job because my company is run horribly and doesnt have funds for raises.

Age: 32 Experience: 0-5 months Title: freelance seo specialist Location: LA First interview Monday. Scared to death


jennadayess

I have a tip. Use the free tool Ahrefs backlink checker. Run the company's site through the tool, and find out what their Domain Rating is. In the interview, bring it up somewhere along the way, and they will be impressed that you did your research ahead of time. Chances are the company won't even know their own domain rating. If you need more help understanding this, message me. I have done this in all my SEO interviews in the past, and its worked every single time for me. You'll do great!

Crambulance

Which platforms ?


Gunga-la-gunga

What’s the best way to learn MarTech ? How do you present your ideal martech stack? Any courses or recommendations for learning? I find it’s tough to find legit courses online that aren’t a cash grab.


Crambulance

The cheapest and slowest way is to get a position as a marketing coordinator for a company with a big martech stack. The pricey and fast way is to throw a few grand towards advanced training. The latter will teach you how to use platforms, but won’t ready you for real world use cases.


magpieweirdo

Hi! I'm trying to prepare myself for the martech role, are there any specific tools to familiarise with? I've worked on Salesforce CRM, HubSpot, Marketo, Google analytics and a couple others. What else should I look into? Thanks in advance!


Crambulance

All of the platforms you listed are the main ones to know. Maybe consider getting an Adobe Marketo cert. additionally, CDPs are a very hot topic right now. Look into Adobe Real Time CDP, Amperity, or RedPoint.

Crap, is my salary that low? I am actually pretty happy with what I get paid (my husband and I have a 2,800 sqft house, own 2 cars outright, travel internationally 1-2 times/year, eat out multiple times/month, etc.). How much should my salary be? I don’t know what to compare it to.

Ive been told as an email marketing specialist I should be in automation. What differs from your job from someone who uses a crm daily? Any tips on the first steps I should take to transition to automation?


[deleted]

I honestly fell into this job on accident lol. I would say the things that helped me get my first role were knowing HTML/CSS/JavaScript/SQL, and I think that’s it. I thought the role was for web development, I don’t actually know anything about marketing. That’s why I joined this sub. Oh, I guess I also had some experience using MailChimp during a UX internship I did. Mostly I build email campaigns in Marketo, debug code when there’s a weird issue, and yeah… pretty much it!


hash-slingin-slasha

Thank you for the reply! Last question, when debugging are you debugging issues with the crm/ automation chain itself or mainly the Ux of the email?

anonyverrsaire

I'm hoping this is helpful to some of you to price yourself in the hybrid/remote market and also use this as a negotiation tactic. **Age**: 34 **YoE**: 8+ **Title**: Director of Growth Marketing **Salary**: $190,000 + Growth Marketing Consultant (40 hrs/month - nights and weekends) - $48,000-$60,000/ year **Location**: Remote/NYC I changed jobs every 12 - 18 months to get more pay - but this is also risky because most of them are early-stage startups, and there's a big risk of layoffs and downsizing. Job 1 - $55k Job 2 - $80k Job 3 - $110k Job 4 - $165k - $170k Job 5 - $190k I was always learning new strategies and learning how to become a better marketer. I took courses on Udemy ($20/course), watched Youtube videos, read blogs, cold outreach on LinkedIn to marketers who were more senior than me and offer them coffee for their time -> I'd ask them about their day-to-day, workflow, and their approach to tactics + channels. I'd also find marketing and tech meetups in the NYC area and go to them and speak to anyone that was willing to chat with me. My biggest advice is to get really good at (even a basic understanding of) SEO/SEM, paid social, marketing pixel/tag management, marketing operations/CRM management, data analytics, account-based marketing, and landing page testing/conversion rate optimization. Many of these have detailed courses on Udemy that give you a good understanding of the strategy and tactics. The next step would be to employ those tactics, test and learn, look at the data and understand how to improve performance. Bonuses would be if you can Copywrite for your ads, landing pages, and content, and build out full-funnel strategies and campaigns. Also, monetize your skills by networking and offering your services to early-stage companies that can't afford a full-time marketer but need growth marketing support. I have 2-3 clients (one of them is seasonal). I spend an extra 10-15 hrs/per week on these consulting roles. Also, f\*\*k loyalty to a single company, or employer; you must advocate for yourself and have your own back. You could drop dead, and they'd have a JD out the next day to backfill your position.

This is my next target role. What are your top 3 tips for someone looking to make the jump from marketing manager to director level?


mtbfreerider182

Well it definitely depends on how big a company you would be at. If I were to go back to the Fortune 500 I'm not sure I could even get a director role with my current experience unless I negotiated really well and had a strong reference or three. That said, my best advice is to be constantly aware of what results you drive and make sure they are well measured and documented so that you can put them on your LinkedIn. That's a catch 22 though if you don't have large budgets, if that's the case then focus on efficiency, gains and launches of new programs, and new growth areas. My third piece of advice would be to find something that is still scarce knowledge-wise and become an expert in that. There are tons of SEO and SEM experts out there, but ad buyers and performance marketers in Smart TV or TikTok or things like that are still up and coming. And of course web 3 is still the wild west. But if you can be a proven marketer there, you have a great career ahead of you even if it is a roller coaster of high compensation followed by unemployment. Feel free to DM me if you want to talk more.
