    Your question doesn't really make sense. Marketing is a broad field which encompasses areas such as advertising. It's a bit like asking "who makes more money, paediatricians or doctors?" or ". Can you be more specific about what you mean by "marketing"?

    You should be more interested in what the roles are like, not the money. Marketing and advertising positions generally aren't that well paid unless you're in the cities or obv. a manager.

    I'd be interested in working in a marketing role for a business in London. Would that be well payed?

    I have to agree in that marketing and advertising roles are not very well paid as opposed to other sectors until you get very high within an organisation. If you are just motivated by money then i would suggest looking into sectors such as recruitment consultancy or investment banking where there is a real focus on people seeking to get rich.

    Advertising is a form of Marketing... but if you're good at Advertising, it can be one of the better earning forms of marketing.

    Hope that helps.

    Your question doesn't make sense. Are you talking about creative or sales?

    I think you should do some research of the sector or industry you want to move into. How can you expect to get a 'well paid' or 'get rich' job without knowing what your talking about?

    Depending on the role within marketing or advertising will depend on the earning potential. Generally sales within those areas have the potential to make you rich if you are good at selling obviously but you could earn more in other areas of sales.
