I saw this handy infographic from Onward Search today and thought you might be interested to see the average salary for social media jobs around the country. You can see a PDF of this graphic here: Social-Media-Jobs-Salaries-Guide.
One question I have is the designation between “specialist” and “strategist”. In my opinion, if you are a specialist, you understand the strategy behind successful social media, and that makes you a strategist. If that’s the case, I want the strategist title because they seem to make more money.
Also, it looks like you really need to be in a big market to make your career in social media.
What do you think the future holds for social media jobs?
