The results for the previously mentioned survey I was conducting at DigiWhirl, on the payscale for social media professionals in India were just published, take a look. It seems social media is quite a lucrative professional. I think some rules should be revisited,

Cheap services – There are many out there who suggest very low rates for social media services, claiming a hundred reasons. Its up to the person to put their foot down and not do the work unless the rates are reasonable. If you are going to do it for cheap you may as well work with a non-profit that would be better.

Social media is free – It should be rephrased to social media tools are usually free. Even the tools are not always free 😉

 
  • Also fact remains that good amount of work is done by interns in many companies

    • Hmm ya but then that would be for just few months, after that intern will
      probably look for a better job or promotion IMHO
