How much does a Marketing Team or CTO cost?

According to, the average Marketing Director is compensated $133,518 annually, and that’s just one position.  Add a Marketing Manager and you’ll have to tack on an additional $94,725 to this amount – and we haven’t even started talking about design, development, or communications resources.  According to you would be looking at at least $41,000 annually to hire a Graphic Designer – a number that seems low – and reports Developer positions pulling in around $100,000 on average.  Needless to say, if you’re looking to build your own marketing department you should carve out at least $500,000 annually – with funds set aside for training, overhead (office space, computers, electric usage, etc.), and other miscellaneous items in addition to the potential headaches that come with having an in-house team.

The average CTO (Chief Technology Officer) makes $227,244.
