We all like to squeeze in a bit of reading over the holidays. And we’ve got just the thing: a freshly minted copy of NZ Marketing magazine. For your summer reading pleasure, we’ve compiled our extremely definitive end of year list complete with the best campaigns, the epic fails, the captivating stoushes, the most-loved things, the mergers, the departures, the ship jumpers and anything else we could squeeze in. There’s also a rare glimpse into the under-the-radar success of indie agency Shine and the rather interesting results of our Salary Survey, which was conducted by The Research Agency, filled in by more than 500 people and showed a definite desire for movement in 2012. You can read the mag the quaint, old-fashioned way by buying it at the shop or subscribing here. But because you marcomms folk are so tech-savvy, you can also download an electronic version of the magazine to your device for just $6 by heading to the Zinio site (digital subscriptions for six issues are also available for $25).
Back in the day, NZ Marketing magazine ran a salary survey and, given the rampant desire humans seem to have to find out what their peers are paid —and, by extension, whether they’re being paid enough—its inclusion always made it a very popular edition. But, due to a number of factors, it was put out to pasture a few years back. With all that’s happened in the marcomms industry in recent years and the effect that has had on recruitment, we decided it was high time to resurrect the survey and try to find out what you all do, how much you get paid for it, what motivates you, what annoys you, what your goals are and everything inbetween. Obviously we need your support to ensure this once again becomes the most comprehensive view of the New Zealand marcomms job market. So we hope you can spare 5-10 minutes to answer a few questions. All those who complete the survey, which is brought you in association with The Research Agency, will go into the draw to win a collection of booty, including a two-night stay for up to four people at Glen Aros Country Estate in the Hawke’s Bay valued at $2,350, a STORM London watch valued at close to $400 and one of six 1.5 litre Moa Methode magnums. The results of the survey, which closes on November 14, will run in the January/February issue of NZ Marketing. Click here to complete.
The Auckland Chamber of Commerce has just released its 2010 salary survey and, given the economic events of the last few years, it’s not a huge surprise to find that Auckland business is still “running on lean” and—block your ears children—sales and marketing salaries have dropped. So check out the rates so you know whether you should cackle maniacally with Scrooge McDuck-esque glee as you roll about on your bed with wads of cash, or go crying to the boss about not getting paid enough.
