Is it possible to cross six figures in a LCOL city in advertising? Do you have to land a remote job from NYC or LA to do this? Any advice welcome.

Yes. I used to live in Detroit and I was making $150k as a strategy director which is what my friends were making in LA/NYC.

For sure. I’m guessing C suite at some shops might even be making seven figures.

Obviously depends on your role and level.

I don’t think I’d call Austin a LCOL city though.

Of course. I make $130K in MPS. Any CD at a halfway decent agency makes more than that.

Yeah, but don’t expect it to come soon. I started making six figures as a mid level in NYC with 2.5 years of experience

Making 120 as a sr creative in Richmond

Absolutely. I’m making $110k in Florida (not Miami), although it could be argued we aren’t really LCOL anymore 🤷
