In today’s fast-paced digital world, the path to marketing success is ever-evolving. Yet, one constant remains: the need for a strategic approach that drives prospects through each stage of your customer journey. This is where the value proposition of Musselwhite Marketing shines brightest, especially when compared to the traditional route of hiring and training entry-level digital marketers.

The High Cost of Training Entry-Level Digital Marketers: A Barrier to Immediate ROI

The journey of hiring an entry-level digital marketer is fraught with hidden costs and time investments. From recruitment and onboarding to training and development, the path to realizing a profitable effect on your business can extend over 6 – 8 months. During this period, the tangible impact on your marketing efforts can often remain elusive, delaying the critical momentum needed for growth and success. The Cost of Training New Employees extends over 6 – 8 months or even longer, during which the tangible impact on your marketing efforts can often remain elusive.

The average first-year expense of hiring an entry-level marketer can vary based on different factors. Research suggests that the cost of hiring an entry-level employee is typically about 20% of their salary[2]. For example, even an employee earning near minimum wage can lead to turnover costs of around $3,500. On average, the cost of a new hire ranges from 0.5 to 2 times their annual salary[2]. Additionally, the average cost per hire is nearly $4,700, with various factors influencing this cost such as business size, location, industry, and specific role[4].

When considering building an in-house marketing team, the cost can be significant. For instance, a three-person marketing team with average salaries could start at $255,000 per year, including a Marketing Director, Digital Marketer, and Graphic Designer[3]. On the higher end, a six-person highly experienced team could cost almost $1,000,000 per year[3]. These costs include salaries and basic technology needed for marketing activities like email marketing, social media management, digital advertising, and more[3].

And just to reiterate, the average first-year expense of hiring an entry-level marketer involves various costs such as salaries, training expenses, recruitment costs, and technology expenses. The total cost can range from a percentage of the employee’s salary to several times their annual salary depending on different factors and the level of expertise required for the marketing team[2][3][4].
