How would you ask for a $50k raise?

I am currently making $50k and I have found through market research that my JD of a sales engineer/ consultant is $100k.

How can I leverage this to express I'm being underpaid and I want a raise? Any and all advice is appreciated. Thanks 👍 🙏

Hmm, $50k would be 100% raise. You might need to look at an external opportunity instead.

Negotiating Raise to CMO

I’m finishing year 2 CPG startup where I lead marketing.

I was hired as “Marketing Manager” with the expectation that as long as I perform, I would continue to lead the department. I’ve helped the company grow from <$1M to forecasted $10M this year, and am the CEOs number 2. My ceo “de-prioritizes” titles, but I feel I’m deserving of it.

I’d like to negotiate the following:
- pay raise: $140k > $170k
- title: head of marketing > CMO
- equity: some added shares

Tips?

Been at my current company for 1.5 years. Started off in a design role and after 8 months, I moved up to a much higher role. When I got my new role, I was told I could not negotiate a new salary until my review at the end of the year and that I would not be disappointed. Here I am 10 months later, with no indication of a significant raise and no written promises. Now, another company is offering me 100k salary while I am currently making 60k. Any advice on how to move forward?
