Q1. What made you join the Digital Marketing Industry?
DP Vishwakarma: Unfortunately, I am an Electrical Engineer with the least passion for going to technical fields. After completing my engineering, I was just clueless about my career. It was crystal clear to me that engineering was not my cup of tea, especially electrical engineering. This is when I discovered the vast possibilities in the Digital Marketing field. While I was searching for jobs on the internet, I was introduced to SEO. I was amazed to see the way websites rank up on the search engines. I was totally influenced by the beauty of Digital marketing as well as its vast scope in freelancing, starting your own startup and huge job options available in the sector. The very particular moment I decided to pursue my career as a digital marketer.
Q2. Tell me about your career background?
DP Vishwakarma: Graduated as an Electrical Engineer from KIET Ghaziabad, I started my career as a Sales and Marketing Associate at the age of 17 in a Network Marketing company on a part-time basis. I was sure to not work as an ‘Electrical engineer’. I wasn’t selected for a technical Job through campus placement interviews.
Unfortunately or you can say fortunately I became an engineer clueless about what to do. At the same time, I got many jobs in hardcore marketing & sales because of 4-year experience in MLM business. I left all these jobs because I wanted something different in my life. After a break of a few months, I joined a course in Digital Marketing and thereafter started as a Social Media Marketer for an e-commerce company. Today, I consider myself lucky to be listed as a leading position of Digital Marketing Consultant in India on Google. Presently I own a successful:

- Few more startups
Q3. For you, how different is digital marketing from the traditional way of marketing?
DP Vishwakarma: Television, Newspapers, Radio, Flyers, and billboards by the roads and highways & Ads that we see in weekly magazines are all a form of traditional marketing which is still in continuation for some of the industries. Digital marketing, on the other hand, makes use of platforms like Social media like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, Business networking sites like LinkedIn, Promotional ads via emails, Paid pop-ups, Blogs & Articles. You can consider Digital or online marketing as the mode of the global village. In this era of Technology & Internet, Digital form of marketing works significantly fast as compared to the traditional one and can help you drive insane traffic & leads if used & applied correctly.

Q5. How would you describe digital marketing to someone who is completely new to the Industry?
DP Vishwakarma: Let us understand Digital Marketing this way- In the old days, you put an advert in a newspaper, TV or radio station and you had no means of measuring how many people had actually seen or heard about your product, or how they interacted with your brand before making a purchase. The same way Digital marketing works. It’s just a newer & advanced version of traditional marketing. We can use an internet audience for marketing at Digital space.
DP Vishwakarma: I participated in the Certified Digital Marketing Course in 2016 while I was jobless and confused about my career. The confusion because of not knowing the proper use of skills. I am good at sketching graphics, Good at marketing and sales (worked almost 4 year in MLM), good at blogging and presentation, good at website and mobile app project designing but altogether what I didn’t have was- the right guidance on how I can use all these skills for my career or business!
This is when the Digital Marketing course helped me. After completing my digital marketing training, I got to see a clear path and know-how of where I can use all my skills to achieve a great career ahead. These are the ‘must to acquire skills’ of Digital Marketing that can aid your career growth-
