In the Social Media Industry? If So, This Article/Request Is a Must Read!

As this is Social Media Week  we thought it would be appropriate to delve into the social media industry and see where the social media jobs are concentrated, the breakdown of job titles in the industry, and how much dough the average social mediate is bringing home each year.

So says Lauren Drell (www.mashable.com) in edited excerpts from her original article* which Lorimer Wilson, editor of www.munKNEE.com (Your Key to Making Money!) and www.FinancialArticleSummariesToday.com (A site for sore eyes and inquisitive minds) presents below. Please note that this paragraph must be included in any article re-posting to avoid copyright infringement.
 
Will you help? I am looking for a SM expert to volunteer to help me maximize the awareness and growth of munKNEE.com via a social media presence. Yes, I already am posting links to my articles on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn but as an old guy I frankly do not really know what I am doing, and even worse, how to improve and maximize my feeble efforts. If would like to help please email “editor-at-munKNEE . com”. Thanks

 

Drell goes on to say:

Social media is an evolving and cutting-edge field, so it should come as no surprise that you can make a great living managing a brand’s presence on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, Foursquare and other social platforms. In the infographic below, produced by OnwardSearch, you can see where the social media jobs are concentrated, the breakdown of job titles in the industry, and how much dough the average social mediate is bringing home each year. (The graphic shows the 25th and 75th percentiles for salary, pulled from Indeed).

Does the above stack up with what you’ve seen in the industry? Do you think these positions and the salaries make sense, given the rise of social media? Let us know in the comments.
