February 25, 2020 will start a new phase in my marketing career as it has introduced me to the new type of marketing “ The Digital Marketing”. Not that the concept of digital marketing is totally new to me, but the lessons which I learnt in the course that I prescribed from Digital Deepak “Digital Marketing Bundle pro “ which I am studying since a month has given me a deep and thorough Knowledge to all aspects of Digital Marketing . Along with that I joined India’s most comprehensive Digital Deepak Internship program from March,2020.
The 8 weeks Digital Deepak Internship Program along with the one month Digital Marketing course which I did (Theory), I am sure that I will complete my Digital training program . And that too, just at the cost Rs20,000 compared to 1 to 1.5 lakh of Rupees spent by students taking digital training from Premium institutes in one to two years program.
I started my career in sales and marketing since 1994 and have seen all aspects in this field. I have been working selling credit cards in direct sales of multinational banks in New Delhi, I have worked selling cars of maruti suzuki and toyota in jabalpur, I did my Post graduate in business management, I worked and still am working as an affiliate in SFI Marketing group although not with much success, yet I am obsessed with the concept of Digital marketing.
