Paid Media Salary Survey Results 2017

It’s that time of year. No not tax season but that’s fast approaching for many of us on both sides of the pond. However, it’s our second annual salary survey!

This year we recieved 302 responses, which is a 25% increase YoY. Again the USA, UK and Canada round out the top 3. Australia, you’re so close again this year with spot #4. Netherlands takes spot #5 and my Germany friends are #6 (they were #5 last year).

We have a new feature section this year. We show a break down of male and female salaries in our top 4 markets, which is a nice new addition. WUNDERBAR! (German for wonderful). We’ve also added median salary as well per a request from the community. I think that covers it.

P.S. As per my note last year. Some people have only been in paid 3 – 5 years BUT have been working for 10+ years in their career. This can skew salaries higher then you’d expect. Please take that into account across all countries.

My Top 5 Posts of 2016

As 2016 winds down and many look forward to this year being done with. I think it’s time we remind ourselves that if we don’t remember how we got into the situation we are  in. We are doomed to repeat history when the chance comes up again.

I thought a look back over 2016 was in order. What were some of my most viewed and “read” posts in 2016. I really tried to write less this year but spent more time trying to make each post of a higher quality.

Though I’ve not always achieved that. It was a better year for writing. However, lets look back at what my best posts were of 2016.

I’m Speaking at #InboundYVR November 2016

November is looking to be a double fist pump kind month. I’m getting to speak at State of Search on November 15th and not I get to Inbound Marketing YVR too. This talk will be 20 minutes and I don’t want to give away the topic but the future of search depends on what I will talk about.

I’m Speaking at State Of Search 2016

state-of-search-conference

I’m pretty pumped to announce I’ll be speaking at State of Search  in Dallas, TX. The conference runs November 14 – 15th, 2016. I’m speaking at the end of the second day about doing international PPC when you’re a one man band. That includes not using an agency or consultant/freelancer on the side. Part of  my pitch was:

How did paid search grow 30% MoM after I came on board in April 2015? This talk will focus on the process, the tips & tricks and lessons learned that went into growing our business by 30% with only myself running paid search and no outside agencies/vendors.

My 30 minute talk will be brand new content I’ve not presented anywhere els, which is my usually process for a conference talk. However, in this case I’ve never talked about international PPC at all.

I’m speaking at Digital Summit Minneapolis on July 26th at 11am. I’m going to do a revised and shorter version of my talk I gave at HeroConf Phillidalia I gave back in April. This will be my first time to the midwest that doesn’t involve Chicago and I’m excited as can be.
