According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 2018-19, the median annual salary for a marketing specialist is over $60,000/year. Broken down, this equates to about $5,000 a month, not including the added costs like insurance or vacation pay. This number more than doubles for a marketing manager with years of experience under their belt. Depending on your marketing needs, the costs for an agency can be significantly cheaper than hiring a full-time employee. Not only that, but you have access to multiple marketing specialist instead of only one on your payroll.
