Do Digital Marketing Jobs Pay More Salary? Data Says Yes

You may have heard that digital showcasing occupations pay higher compensations. However, is it valid? Since it is conceivable that individuals who offer digital showcasing preparing projects and courses (like me!) are the ones touting that advanced advertising is the following enormous thing.

You may likewise imagine that advanced advertising is only a buildup and it won’t keep going long. Rather than debating this subject with suppositions, we should take a gander at the information and realities. I have gathered information from different sources and exhibiting it to you in this article, so you can see reality for yourself.


We will likewise attempt to comprehend why digital showcasing is sought after. We will take a gander at the adjustment in customer conduct, why brands need to change their advertising technique lastly, how we, the advanced advertisers can profit by the evolving times.


Why Digital Marketing?


The adjustment in customer conduct has been quick in the previous 3-5 years. You can see the change surrounding you. A huge number of purchasers have begun utilizing the web. There are more than 400 million web clients in India at this moment. The web use has been quickened by the entrance of cell phones and minimal effort PCs.


A current world bank report uncovered that 26% of the populace in India approaches the web as of now (and this is 2015). China has 50.3% and the USA has 74.6%. Numerous European nations have 90%+ web entrance. Norway finish the rundown with around 97% of the populace having web get to.


There is no motivation behind why India won’t get to 80% entrance in the following 10-20 years. That would 3X the measure of the advanced showcasing industry in India.


You can see that the blue line in the chart is taking an exponential bend. The following 400 million web clients will come speedier than we anticipate. There is far to go and the street looks wonderful. (Presently you know why numerous web new companies in India are being hyper-supported).


When I approached broadband web, it was in the second year of school. I had dial-up access to the web as ahead of schedule as 2004. Today there are 8x more web clients on the web! (I feel old!)



We are for the most part discussing the advanced promoting openings for work in this article, however in the event that you are a businessperson, you can see that why you can’t disregard India as a market. Numerous online business people have concentrated on pitching items to American and European clients disregarding India as a potential market. I am wagering enthusiastic about my nation.


New telecom players in India like Jio have disturbed the market and have made the web an utility than an extravagance. Extreme rivalry has constrained other telecom administrators to diminish costs also.


The change was not this quick when TV and Radio tagged along. It took decades for each home to have a TV. Be that as it may, today, every one of us has various web gadgets and numerous web associations.


This pace doesn’t appear to back off. Elon Musk arrangements to dispatch web satellites into the circle with the assistance of SpaceX by 2019. This will empower an ease, fast broadband access to a colossal bit of the detached world.


On the off chance that purchaser conduct has changed, organizations need to change. Clients are a definitive supervisor for each business. Without being in a state of harmony with their requirements and conduct, no business can survive.


Why Brands Need to Change their Marketing Strategy


There is an immense requirement for brands to begin promoting on the digital medium. The new era is viewing YouTube and once in a while turns on the TV. They read writes and not daily papers. They utilize applications like Facebook, Instagram to associate with loved ones. Such two-way correspondence applications weren’t even conceivable before the web.


Brands need to publicize their items at spots where buyers stay nearby. On the off chance that brands continue burning through cash on hoardings, TV promotions and daily paper advertisements, they won’t have the capacity to survive, not to mention develop their business.


This change has constrained numerous CEOs and Co-authors of new businesses to learn and execute advanced advertising themselves. New businesses can’t bear to be ease back and they have to adjust to the adjustment in economic situations. There is as of now a tremendous development in digital advertising spends in India. Here’s a diagram from MediaNama and Group M.


You can see that the development of digital advertising spends looks like the development of web clients in India. In any case, the spending is falling behind the genuine client development. Furthermore, the motivation behind why the advanced advertising spends are not as high as it ought to be is a direct result of the absence of digital advertisers.


A vast rate of organizations are as yet stayed with conventional showcasing. Not at all like new businesses, originators of vast associations can’t concentrate on digital advertising themselves on the grounds that there are such a large number of different things to deal with.


Their exclusive expectation is to contract a specialist digital advertiser who can assemble an advanced showcasing group. In any case, the enormous organizations are not discovering enough qualified applicants who are specialists in digital advertising. Would it be able to be valid? We should take a gander at the information once more…


The Shortage of Digital Marketing Talent


As indicated by a report by Kstart and YourStory, the digital showcasing industry is developing at 40% year-on-year when contrasted with 5-6% development in numerous different enterprises.


Citing from the report:


For Startups, digital promoting is a more practical choice than customary media on the grounds that even with a little spending plan, organizations can test the viability of their advertising system, control expenses, and contact focused on prospects.


It’s the reason each sort of business (of all shapes and sizes, old and new) is perceiving the significance of utilizing digital showcasing. Not shocking then, that the advanced media industry is developing at 40% y/y development when different enterprises are battling at 5% or 6%. – Kstart Report


As indicated by another review done by Kstart, 66% of respondents trusted that discovering great ability was a noteworthy bottleneck in light of the fact that a not very many individuals “get” advanced showcasing. Others felt there wasn’t sufficient ability in the market. Organizations are unmistakably feeling a deficiency with regards to enlisting capable digital advertisers.


I have witnessed it inside the organizations that I’ve worked with and the details are stating the same. A current article in Times of India additionally demonstrated a similar truth that digital advertising aptitudes have popularity yet low supply.


On the off chance that you begin searching for sources that demonstrate the absence of supply in advanced advertising abilities, you will discover bounty on the web.


What’s more, you needn’t bother with an answer to help you trust that the advertising scene is evolving. You can watch what’s happening around you, and anticipate what’s coming next.


The Various Digital Marketing Roles


Brands require advanced advertisers to run their showcasing efforts on the web. What’s more, they are prepared to pay a decent cost for it in light of the fact that the cash they put resources into proficient digital showcasing would be a great deal not as much as customary promoting.


In the event that a hopeful with 2-3 years involvement in advanced advertising is winning 5 to 10 lakhs for every annum, the organization will make more than what they spend on the digital showcasing ability. For them its a speculation, not a cost. That is the place your incentive as an advanced advertiser lies. You are the person who will help organizations profit with proficient advanced advertising.


Little organizations may require only maybe a couple advanced advertisers to deal with their crusades. Vast organizations or very much subsidized early stage new companies will require an advanced promoting group.


A portion of the top parts in digital promoting accessible today are:


Digital Marketing Manager


Online networking Marketing Manager


Web optimization Expert


CRO Expert


Content Marketer


Email Marketer


Marketing specialist


Paid Ads Expert (Facebook and Google Ads)


Investigation Expert


On the off chance that the association is huge, the advanced promoting administrator will answer to V.P of Marketing (or the Chief Marketing Officer). The titles may vary from place to put, however the way of work continues as before.


This is the means by which the advanced showcasing group is organized inside the association. In the event that an organization is little, different parts are taken up by the one advanced advertiser.


To take in more about the employment detail of every part and how the digital showcasing group would be organized, perused this article: Digital Marketing Jobs and Career Opportunities in India.


What’s the Average Salary for Digital Marketers?


The pay of these positions contrasts with years of experience, the sort of organization that is contracting and above all, the city in which you work. In any case, I can unhesitatingly say that the pay rates are certainly higher than different fields where the supply is more than the request!


As indicated by PayScale – a definitive wellspring of compensation information, a digital advertiser in Bangalore with a couple of years of experience will gain around 7.2 lakhs for each annum. This depends on information gathered from genuine individuals with genuine employments, not a gauge.


In the previous a few filling in as a digital promoting chief in numerous new businesses, I’ve generally landed various position offers before joining any organization – which is an unmistakable sign that the request is more than the supply. After I’ve left my last organization Razorpay, they haven’t found an advanced advertiser to supplant me yet!


I was being paid around 15-20 Lakhs for every annum in the last 3 new companies that I’ve worked for. The last offer I got was around 25 Lakhs for every annum, which I declined, to chip away at my own undertakings.
