Your current situation:

2. At your work, the marketing department, sales, and agencies – everyone is using these jargons like SEO, Paid Media, New Media, Ad Rank, Conversion rate, quality score. You feel you are left behind and the fear that if “I don’t learn these things, my job will be at risk and my future career is uncertain”
3. You want to be that go-to person for all new things in your industry, the traditional marketing you are good but when it comes to digital and social media, you are left behind.
4. Your company wants you to pitch a client, you tried to pitch but the client asks you that the competitors are using Snapchat extensively and see their company all over Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and wherever they go online. They ask you how to do the same.

Priyanuj Boruah says:” Awesome place to learn and earn knowledge of digital marketing. All the faculty members are very supportive and encouraging. Happy to be a part of WMA family”
krishna chaitanya says: “WMA is the best place for learning Digital Marketing.
I am one of the alumni of WMA. I am from Andhra Pradesh.
The secret of success and how WMA different from other normal institutes
1. Live Projects
2. Interactive sessions
(if you’re dealing with live projects, you can’t practice well without faculty guidelines or interaction).
3. Encourages you to do more mistakes.
( Because you will get to know how to fix the errors/mistakes so that you won’t face the situation in the company where you working in future)
4. They will concentrate more on practicals than theory
5. They will create Interest and Curiosity on the topic.
( you will get to know each and every detail of the topic only if you have the interest).
6. Of course Placements.✓
WMA in a word ” Digital Hub”
You got started! But is it enough?
Now that you know that no other way, you start to look for training institutes or online and you tried to learn by yourself. Great! and you watched some videos online, followed some blogs and signed up for Lynda and several other courses even great! Something tells you that you are still not confident, what is it? why
You realized by now you need formal training or a mentor who can guide you in the right direction, by this time you also decided that online classes are not an option.
And there it is Google, you searched came across several institutes with Google ads, local, in Delhi, everywhere You are so aggressive you want to do the course Now excited,
(sometimes you don’t want to show that excitement to your friends or colleagues too 🙂 which is fine)
With so many institutes claiming we are the best, top, our faculties, so many students 10,000, 20,000 students trained and placed everyone claims to the best, but who really is the best training institute? you don’t know yet.
And then you tried searching in Quora, forums, LinkedIn groups, and of course Google, hoping someone would have written about the top 10 institutes, comparing the advantages of each institute
But you are still confused
I know how you feel, I have gone thru it too, patience my friend, there is hope
So here is the thing, those who give the review or comparing institutes are wrong? No they give their opinion based on a number of what they have seen, heard and it’s their personal opinion, my suggestion is to consider the opinion but you do your own research which suits you. The person who reviews or compares have not undergone training in all these institutes or did they?
You still don’t have a solid answer
Everyone says, Google has got all the answers but it’s not solving your pain points.
