“Working under the guidance of seniors & self-learning are the two major factors that helped me to grow in Digital Marketing.” – Anmol Singh Sidana
The world has progressed & everything has shifted from analog to digital. For any organization to stand among the others, a strong digital strategy is a must. Google and Facebook generate more revenue than any other traditional media company because they control more eyeballs.
Today, a large number of people are consuming all kinds of information that they watch online. This factor makes Digital Marketing the best way to reach out to targeted customers. Ignoring Digital Marketing in current times is like opening a store but not selling the product.
Marketing is one of the most vital components of an organization but with this rapidly changing environment, the domain of marketing has also changed. Everyone is now availing the benefits of the world wide web. In order to have a cutting edge over others in this internet savvy world, organizations must create and maintain a strong & active online presence.
The competition in the online world is intense and to maintain a strong online presence the companies have to do much more than just launching a website and creating their profile on social media platforms. The organizations ought to have a strong Digital Marketing Plan so as to stay ahead of other organizations.
The growing importance of Digital Marketing paved the way for a new work profile of Digital Marketing Manager.

Anmol kept on learning the ins and outs of Digital Marketing from his seniors and also did a diploma for the same. Finally, Anmol stepped into the domain of Digital Marketing
What Are Things That Digital Marketing Is Looking For In A College Pass Out?
We then asked Mr. Sidana about the skills that an optimum candidate should possess in order to function effectively and efficiently in the field DM. Anmol answered by saying that the candidate should be very inquisitive & updated. S/he should know how to use permalinks/ URLs and should know keywords as per pages. The candidate must know how the web pages work and most importantly they should be updated about Google and its usage.
Next up, we asked Anmol about what the companies expect from students of different tiers of colleges to which he replied it all depends on the confidence and knowledge of the student. He also added that companies know that tier one college has more practically strong students compared to the other two tiers while tier two has more theoretically strong students. So the organizations expect accordingly & also it depends upon the budget of the organization.
A Word About Higher Education From The Industry
While discussing the relevancy of things taught to the students during their Higher Education in the current Industrial scenario Anmol told us that merely five percent of the things taught are relevant. Talking about his personal experience Mr. Sidana revealed that he was only taught basics of marketing, ethics, and politics during his higher education which didn’t help him much in his current job role.
Anmol firmly believes that there is an urgent need to update the Higher Education Curriculum according to the the current industrial demands. The reason for this is the students opt for higher education so as to fetch a good job for themselves.
