This post is the first in a series of articles that will introduce you to the various entry level marketing coordinator salary requirements. The following is a breakdown of the requirements for entry level marketing coordinators, along with the compensation that each may receive in the United States.
A marketing coordinator will need to be extremely knowledgeable about the local market and know how to identify the right candidates for the job.
According to the latest Salary Report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, one marketing coordinator makes just under $62,000 a year. That’s not that bad of a salary. It’s significantly better than the average entry level marketing coordinator salary, which is only $44,000.
It’s not a bad salary. But it’s pretty far into the middle range of a marketing coordinator’s salary. It’s better than what you’ll get in a marketing director job at a big company, where you have to work in close proximity to the office.
It is a bit more than a marketing coordinator job, but not a lot. In the big corporate offices there are a lot of HR staff who do all the things that marketing coordinators do. Its a few times a year that a company sends an HR team to the marketing teams to do all of their staffing. That way they can send the right people to work from home. So the marketing coordinators can continue to work from home.
The marketing coordinator career path can be a little confusing, because there are lots of different paths to getting a job in marketing. One of the more common pathways is to do some kind of sales training or coaching (usually on demand-type programs). This is a job that some marketing coordinators do, but it is a very different kind of job than the ones that marketing coordinators do.
If you’re going to be a marketing coordinator you’re going to have to do a lot of work on your own. The first step towards being a marketing coordinator is to get your own company. The next step is to get a job at a company that you own. If you’re lucky enough to find a company with great work, you’re now in a position where you can start making a lot of money.
In our book, the book I wrote to help marketing coordinators make more money, we cover the entire cost of a company that you own. In this book we discuss the first step towards becoming a marketing coordinator, getting your own company, and then discussing the next step, getting a job at a company that you own.
Many managers will say, “I could never do that.” Well, yes you can, but it is very, very hard. We’ve been in marketing for almost twenty-five years, and we’ve seen it all. We’ve seen companies go bankrupt, and we’ve seen companies merge with other companies, and we’ve seen companies fold. We’ve seen companies fail, and we’ve seen companies get acquired.
Here’s the truth: You can do it, but you won’t. Most managers, especially those in the upper echelons of their companies, want to go into marketing because they want to be the CEO, or the marketing director. They want to run their company like a business. But in the long run, they don’t want to be the manager. A manager is a role that is created by someone else. Not all managers are created equal.
