Carrer in Search Engine Marketing : rewarding career

SEMPO (Search Engine Marketing Professionals Organization) conducted yet another surveys regarding career in search engine marketing. According to the surveys conducted among in house Search Engine Marketin professional of SEMPO a career in search marketing can be very rewarding.

The results reflected the newness of the industry, but also showed that search is maturing. About 64 percent of respondents have five years of SEM experience or less. Very few entry-level SEMs reported salaries over $100,000; just 8.0 percent of those with 0-3 years experience. Compare this to the number of similar respondents making less than $50,000: 48.8 percent. The remaining 43.2 percent fell in the middle, making between $50,000 and $100,000 a year.

The size of salaries roughly corresponded to the size of the company, with larger companies paying more. "That indicates that it's a good career path. There are options out there, it just takes a little more experience to get them," he said.

More experienced SEMs, those with 5 to 7 years of experience, tended to make significantly more than their inexperienced counterparts. Just 17.4 percent of respondents in this group reported making less than $50,000. The majority (56.4 percent) make more than $80,000 a year, including 4.4 percent that reported earning more than $200,000 in salary and 30.3 percent making between $100,000 and $200,000.

The difference in experience levels is being reflected in the number of senior level titles. There are still relatively few VP-level search marketers, less than 4 percent of respondents. Another 10 percent hold a director title, and 9 percent have a senior management role. More than 36 percent of respondents in this group reported salaries between $80,000 and $100,000.

Twenty-six percent of respondents hold the title of manager, though nearly half do not directly manage people. Compensation for this group clustered around the $60,000 to $90,000 range.
