Hello! Salaries will be based on your location, often times. The websites mentioned above will give you an idea. I think starting salaries are in the $30K range for marketing assistants these days. However, remember that there is more than money to consider -- will the job give you time off? Health benefits? Retirement plan like a 401K? Investment options? Sometimes the quality of benefits are super important and may make up for a lower salary.
Because there are many roles and positions in the marketing industry, the salaries vary greatly. Here is a link that might help.
there are websites that research salaries. try glassdoor.com or salaries.com
Salaries are based upon experience and geographical location.
Try joining Glassdoor.com and search for Marketing jobs. They have a pretty good database of salaries but take them with a "grain of salt". Remember that these numbers are self-reported and tend to be a little high.
Indeed.com also has some salary info.
As far as salaries go - “The Up Group” (http://www.theupgroup.com/2016/12/2016-digital-leaders-remuneration-guide/), and a report from CranberryPanda (http://www.cranberrypanda.co.uk/ecommerce-salary-survey) - whould answer most of your questions. These are UK specific but there wouldn't be huge difference between countries.
What I think I CAN say with some certainty is that entry level jobs for marketing tend to pay very little; especially at agencies. There is definitely an element of "paying your dues" with Marketing because there is always room for advancement and as you move up in the ranks the pay becomes much better. What I also find to be true is that doing marketing for a business, rather than for an agency, will also improve your salary potential (especially at the beginning). Traditional businesses view marketing staff like another other, so your salary will be more closely aligned with their other staff. At a hospital - for example - their starting salaries for entry level staff might be around $40-50k so that is where you'd come in. That same entry-level role at an agency might be more like $25-35k.
