An Interview with Mr. Amaneesh Seth,Freelancer and DSIM’s Ex-Trainee
He reviews DSIM and also shares with us how digital marketing helped him in choosing his career line.
Q1. Hi Amaneesh, Currently you are pursuing MBA but still you opted for digital marketing training programme. Can we know the reason behind it and what’s your plan for future?
Ans. As I want to grab a job in the online retail sector and for the reason I did digital marketing training. Digital marketing training gave me an edge over all students in my campus. I am the only one in my batch who got knowledge of digital marketing. It’s just not an add-on; it’s a backbone for a person who wants job in online retail sector.
Ans. Yes sure! Let me tell you, after completing my training, I am working on freelancing projects for two clients. I am handling the social media portfolio and I am also looking after the website development.
It is just a word-of-mouth when I told my family and friends about I am doing this course. They contacted me for their business. Many of my friends have their family business and they feel they need to digitalize as this is need of today. Specifically, when I talk about knowledge that businessman have, they don` have enough knowledge about digital marketing. But they need this to grow their businesses. So, my role is that I am to help them, guide them.
My clients are happy with my work and they recommend me too to other clients. So, this is how I got my projects. My limitation is I am doing MBA, can`t take multiple projects at a time. So, I concise to 1-2 project right now.
The money is depending on the portfolio that you are handling and definitely also on the clients. I am easily able to make 10,000 to 12,000 rupees from 1-2 projects per month on an average.
Ans. Yes definitely! I would like to tell them if they have not joined this kind of course, they are getting late day by day. They should do it right now. Many of the students I met, they say “Hum to YouTube sey seekh lenge”. So, this kind of approach is very bad. You really have to follow a schedule which only institutes like DSIM can give. They have to come 1-2 month regularly. So, this regularity will give them clarity in their mind about this course.
If they ask me personally, I would tell them they have enough career option like they can start their own business and they can join any company. Digital marketing is in huge demand. People call me and ask about what digital marketing is. There is much curiosity in the market.
And please don’t go for the trap like YouTube sey seekh lenge, tutorial video dekh lenge. It’s better that you join a course and be regular in your classes.
Mr. Amaneesh Seth completed his Digital marketing training from Delhi School of Internet Marketing in July 2015.
