Is the cost of a full-time Market Director for your firm prohibitive? Are your firm’s marketing efforts lacking direction or results? If so, you are not alone. Many economic factors prevent many engineering and architectural firms from being able to afford a full-time marketing director and marketing themselves effectively.
An employment survey found that the average small or medium-sized engineering or architectural firm will spend approximately $65,000 to $95,000 or more per year in total expenses for a full-time, in-house marketing director to generate opportunities for future business and project contracts. These expenses include: salary, bonuses, benefits, vehicle expenses, pagers, cell phones, long distance calls, and other related employment costs.
