Labor Market Datapoint of the Day

Bo Peabody’s companies pay

their ad sales staff well, it would seem:

Digital ad sales at the entry level are getting multiple six figure salaries.

I tried checking this with my friendly neighborhood digital entrepeneur, who

told me that a junior digital ad sales person who actually gets out of the office

and sells can easily make $150,000 a year. Which isn’t necessarily a "multiple

six figure salary", unless you consider 1.5 to be the multiple that Peabody

had in mind, but it’s still a fair chunk of change.

By contrast, the average sales person on a magazine, according to Folio’s

latest salary survey, makes somewhere between $71,000 and $83,000 in total
