I went into hospital social work. Started out 50k in 2018 and now making over 70k. I live in Richmond, VA. I just got my LCSW in April so I was making good money before that too. Getting your LSW is a good start! I assume Texas would be similar?

What are usually kpi in companies like salesforce for example?

Question about what’s realistic: My boss, vp of marketing, is dead set on working with an agency who can produce multiple videos over the course of several small shoots so that we can iterate on what’s working. From my experience, this would cost a lot more than our budget (80k) and would ultimately be more expensive than one larger shoot with more deliverables. Videos are short, 10s or less and without a real narrative — more just for a sizzle reel kind of thing. Thoughts? Nyc based.
