Not comics, and yet still somehow related to ongoing discussions over how to make money off of your creative endeavors, Media Jobs Daily reports that jobs in social media are growing, meaning you can now make a living fiddling with Facebook and so on, and lists the following salary chart:
The five most common positions and their salaries, by the way, appear below.
Community Manager: $60,000 – $90,000
Analyst/Strategist: $40,000 – $60,000
Product Developer: $75,000 – $100,000
Editor/Publisher: $30,000 – $45,000
Executive: $80,000 – $110,000
We’re not sure what a “community manager” does that an “editor” doesn’t, but obviously one pays a lot more. TWICE AS MUCH. And it pays best of all to be an executive who makes the hard decisions. Obviously we need to phase out these low paying editor/publisher jobs.
