I had wanted to gain some knowledge of the concepts & tools of Digital Marketing since the past two years. I did visit a few institutes in my city & did check up on a few free Online courses. The institutes in my city seemed more commercially oriented with expensive courses of a longer duration, whereas the Free Online courses appeared to be very basic. I was looking for some hand-on training wherein I could be led through the program by an experienced Course coordinator. I was not looking for a certificate nor was I looking for any placement support or guarantee.
I then happened to receive an email from Digital Deepak (Mr. Deepak Kanakaraju) of Pixel Track in Bangalore. The email aroused my curiosity – the word “Internship” seemed to catch my attention.
I signed up for the Free webinar immediately. The webinar by itself was something different. It spoke volumes of the confidence of the Program Owner / Coordinator. Mr. Deepak was well prepared in this webinar & had catered to all the possible queries that any participant could have had. I liked the free flowing nature of the webinar & by the time we were in the middle of the session I was convinced that this person could address my knowledge seeking needs of the dynamic world of Digital Marketing. At the same time, I was more anxious to know about the fee structure for this program. I was hoping that it would not be too exorbitant.
The Fee structure blew my mind. I had to make an upfront investment for the Internship program & this amount would be returned back to me over 10 weekly assignments, in case they were approved. There were some additional bonuses too for the top students of this program. So I grabbed this opportunity & signed up immediately for the program.
I thus ended up being a participant of the 1st Batch of the Digital Marketing Internship Program conducted by Digital Deepak starting from December 2019. It was a 12 weeks Online program with a very unique & interesting program layout & curriculum.
üOne session every week (of 90-120 minutes duration)
üEach session starting around 9 pm
üEach session was recorded & sent to the participants via email
üSlide decks of each session were also sent to the participants
üFacebook group for the internship program
üTelegram group for the program
üWhen required, a few weekend sessions on some specific topics
üParticipation of experts from allied fields of Digital marketing – like affiliate Marketing, Freelancing etc.
üSharing of personal experiences at various stages of the program
Due to the extensive support to the participants vide the above, the movement across the program was very smooth. The delivery was simple & the explanations were crisp. Deepak used to also demonstrate the Digital Marketing tools online during the course of the session itself. So we could easily relate to a tool & understand its purpose & usability. At the same time, I used to make brief notes during the online session & also capture some screens shots (even though they were not required).
All in all, this program was a thoroughly refreshing experience for me. As a person from the IT field with over 25 years of experience, I really learnt a lot in these 12 weeks. This program has truly helped me expand my knowledge base & also enhanced my service offerings to my end customers. I look forward to participating in many more such programs conducted by Digital Deepak in the future too. My best wishes to Deepak & his team.
