When it comes to career choices we make sure that job satisfaction is being taken in to consideration. The elephant in the room is always salary, but when it comes to marketing in 2018, it seems that this elephant is most welcome.

Orbit Media created a guide which focussed on 7 positions in the industry and tracked their change from 2016.

The increasing value that digital marketing holds within business. The winning combination of sales and marketing has created an easily trackable source for revenue.

If you can prove your value through visible metrics then it is impossible for employers to not reward you financially.
