I can’t believe we’re kicking off the fourth edition of this salary report. You can read the 2021, 2020 and 2019 versions here. Starting this year, I plan to combine these reports to make it easier to see trends over time.
I’m asking for a hand here. I’d like to get as many content marketers and freelance writers to fill this out as possible. It’ll take a few minutes to fill out—that’s deliberate as I want to collect really good information. As always, we’ll be sharing this data with everyone so that you can use it to benchmark your own salary, negotiate a raise or decide on the right salary for a new content hire. So please, fill this out and pass it along to a friend. Thank you in advance!
Update: As of December 15, 2021, we are done collecting data. Stay tuned for the report net month.
I’m really excited to announce that Clearscope has come on board as the presenting sponsor of this year’s salary report. Clearscope is a content optimization tool, but beyond that, founder Bernard Huang has been an active member of the community and this isn’t the first time he’s supported it either. (Earlier in the year, we created some tutorials together and he even offered free keyword reports to our members.)
Their optimization tool, plus the Google Docs add-on, Wordpress plugin and multi-language support are best-in-class. Many thanks to the folks at Clearscope for their support.
