How much does a Marketing Manager earn?

As in most careers, advanced degrees and on-the-job experience can mean higher earnings. Marketing managers typically have a few years of experience in advertising, sales, public relations or a related field before advancing to a management role.

Marketing managers' salaries tend to be above $100,000 a year and marketing managers' bonuses are typically 10% or less of their base salary (differences in salary and bonus appear to be more related to the employer than to a person's title). Top cities for marketing management jobs are available in New York, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta.

There are various companies that marketing managers can work for. Salary depends on what products or clients you're responsible for, and what your duties are. In order of highest paying are computer system design firms, technical and scientifically oriented firms, engineering firms, architectural firms, and depository credit intermediation firms.
