We’re collecting Community Manager Salary Survey responses until the end of the month, and we’re excited about all of the results we’ve already received. We can’t help but start looking into the data and wanted to share some early findings with you here.
Over half of all participants identify their job title as “Community Manager,” but we’ve received responses from community specialists, community strategists, marketing managers and more. We’re looking for more data from “Directors of Community”- who may also identify with titles like “Head of Community,” “Director of Community Engagement, “Director of Member Engagement” and “Community Management Director” – and appreciate if you can share the survey with them (and any other community professionals!) you know: http://www.tinyurl.com/CMSS2014
Quick preview of early results:
- Almost 40 percent of directors of community were approached directly by the hiring manager/team about their role. Another 20 percent defined and moved into this role.
- Over half of directors of community have been promoted in their community management role in their organization.
- Although engagement and people skills rank highest in the skill set of the average of respondents, strategic and business skills rank highest among the community director participants.
This preview represents early data, and we are looking for more responses to explore trends in the upcoming report. We would appreciate if you can share the survey with any community professionals you know: http://www.tinyurl.com/CMSS2014
