Why I Learned Digital Marketing Despite Working as a Digital Marketer
By - Vipin Tiwari, Board Infinity Alumni
1. Early Career Background
In regards to my career, I consider myself very fortunate because my family never pressured me. Yet, I feel the flip side of this was my reluctance to pursue my career as a student.
When I graduated from school, I had no career dream, so I took a year off to figure out what I liked doing. I was certain about one thing though, I didn't want to do what others around me were doing!
After a year of thinking, I registered for a Bachelor of Computer Applications degree program at Jabalpur College of Computers and Communication. When I was in college, I became fascinated with this emerging field of Digital Marketing. Whenever I could, I would learn about it. At college, I even preferred it to my semester exams.
Over the course of four months, I studied Digital Marketing from whatever sources I could find online. As a result, I was hired by Samdariya, a well-known brand in Jabalpur, as their digital marketer. As I started earning money, I had made up my mind to not take financial assistance from my parents. Having worked at Samdariya for some time, I moved to Dream Zone, also in Jabalpur, where I worked for one year until December 2020.
A few months later, I joined Unified Web Options Services Pvt. Ltd. as a Digital Marketer. I work with them. In spite of my experience and work in the sector, I decided to gain some knowledge and understanding of the concepts of digital marketing at that time. A course from Board Infinity caught my attention on Instagram.
2. Experience at Board Infinity
There are plenty of free platforms and sources available to learn online, but I chose Board Infinity because of its course structure. It is a well-organized digital marketing course, and even though I was working, there were still many areas I needed to improve. As of yet, Board Infinity has provided me with a comprehensive understanding of the subject.
Board Infinity has been a very good experience for me. Madhura Ma'am, our coach, has a terrific way of teaching. Her way of teaching kept my interest even though there were concepts I already understood. In the past, I wasn't confident in expressing myself. At Board Infinity, Shraddha Ma'am has helped me improve my communication skills and I have worked on myself as well.
My long-term goal is to start my own company. This explains the vast number of startups I have worked with. While working at these startups, I want to identify all the weak points so that when I have my own startup, I know what to do. I have even started my own website recently - DigiVipin.com
