We’re very excited to announce the 2015 Online Marketing Industry Survey is ready. This is the fifth edition of the survey, which started in 2008 as the SEO Industry Survey, and has also been known as the Moz Industry Survey. Some of what we hope to learn and share:
- Demographics: Who is practicing inbound marketing and SEO today? Where do we work and live?
- Agencies vs. in-house vs. other: How are agencies growing? What’s the average size? Who is doing inbound marketing on their own?
- Tactics and strategies: What’s working for people today? How have strategies and tactics evolved?
- Tools and technology: What are marketers using to discover opportunities, promote themselves, and measure the results?
- Budget and spending: What tools and platforms are marketers investing in?
This year’s survey was redesigned to be easier and only take less than 10 minutes. When the results are in we’ll share the data freely with you and the rest of the world, along with the insights we’ve gleaned from it.
By comparing answers and predictions from one year to the next, we can spot trends and gain insight not easily reported through any other source. This is our best chance to understand exactly where the future of our industry is headed.
Every year the Industry Survey delivers new insights and surprises. For example, the chart below (from the 2014 survey) lists average reported salary by role.
One of the data points we hope to discover is if these numbers go up or down for 2015.
Prizes. Oh, fabulous prizes.
It wouldn’t be the Industry Survey without a few excellent prizes thrown in as an added incentive.
This year we’ve upped the game with prizes we feel are both exciting and perfect for the busy inbound marketer. To see the full sweepstakes terms and rules, go to our sweepstakes rules page. The winners will be announced by June 15th. Follow us on Twitter to stay up to date.
