Most offers 40-60K, that includes LA, NYC locations, comparing to J2EE at 120K+ and Sales Account Manager at even high level.
Most web firms recruit PPC managers which are really just client service managers who BS their clients to spend more instead of going through adwords directly.
It is possible that top guys are hired like CEO by high profit recruiting firms. But I know most of you guys will say: "Good SEO/Webmaster don't work for anyone". However, I think in many situations that employement makes sense before your sites can have a stable income of 200K a year so you can expend by hiring.
On the other hand a senior or managing webmaster can make a lot more + bonuses/incentives.
It all depends what you bring to the table and the situation in the company.
Well we don't. I did, & saw the stupidity in it. I was the "Boss" in charge, that had the biggest cut, when I saw the stupidity in it!
So, I gave up the biggest cut, to have all of the proceeds. Paying shareholders for doing nothing wasn't in my game plan!
>SEO/Webmaster Salary is too low.
You might think that, personally I doubt that robbing banks would be a more profitable way to spend my time!
I love my job, although mainly retired at 40. When I choose to work it is with good people who want to win and achieve a goal for themselves. I'm happy to just play a part in their game now.
Money is good, but, it doesn't make happiness, a good wife/husband, friends, family, lack of stress and true freedom bring happiness.
Money is just the Aspirin that solves the occasional headache!
Once they see how your service is you can get more
that certainly seems to be the prevailing wisdom but i think it is flawed in many organisations. if you are cheap then your efforts are automatically devalued. it is v. hard to squeaze more money out of an employer.
