Interesting Look at How To Recruit Top SEOs In-house

Nice article from MarketingSherpa: http://www.marketingsherpa.com/article.php?ident=31146

Interesting some of the rates experienced SEOs can command in-house in the US. An interesting point made:

While employers know that they are asking for a lot, they are not always willing to compensate adequately for their requirements.”“They’ll say ‘I need a seven-year experienced SEO person that does a list of 15 things, and I have $40 grand to spend’…That’s the biggest area where I see a disconnect,” Bodem says.

Some of the rates I’ve seen offered here in Ireland are even more pathetic. Thankfully I have no need to work in-house, but if I did I’d be on a lain to the US right away.

  1. Some recruitment company recently got hold of me through means unknown to me for an in-house role as a “search marketing specialist” with a salary of £12,000. I couldn’t believe a recruitment agency would even operate as low as that.

  2. OMG – I hope you told them where to stick their £12k? Or perhaps told them how many days of your time you’d give for that?

  3. No. I should have got more info on it. I live in the second poorest (monetarily speaking) county in the UK, so this kind of thing is to be expected :)
