Experienced InHouse SEM Getting the Big Bucks

SEMPO published an interesting report about average salaries for inhouse search marketers, with experienced SEMs getting mid-to-high $100,000 salaries, as reported in SEW SearchDay.

The SEMPO report said that mid-to-high $100K to the $200K salaries usually go to those with 5-7 years' experience. The survey the report came from was a "cross-section of global entry-level, mid- and upper-level in-house managers and in-house analysts completed the online survey during the fall of 2007," SEMPO noted.
