For, those of you who are wondering as to “what an irrelevant topic in wma-blog which talks about digital marketing, seo, ppc et al.....?
Wait, this is very much relevant, this blog is mainly about the journey of various like minded humans their quest for the best seo training and how wma happened to us ..
This is going to tell all you people about the fascinating story about how the FANTABULOUS 5,(the current batch members of digital marketing course in wma), found wma and how inspite of diversity in our profiles, backgrounds, domains and ideas ,we got under one roof called wma to be moulded by Mr. Suresh –founder wma
The batch members include
· Sajeesh Radhakrishnan
· And me....Keerthy Raman
SAJEESH a self learner, states internet fascinated him , right from his graduation days, and this propelled him to experiment with the various tools and software’s available with respect to digital marketing and allied areas, once he was given a role of managing the marketing activities of his friend’s travel company , he practised ,and gained the working knowledge of the system but his learning did not stop there, he found something missing, he was convinced that his experiments were giving him the needed results but felt this learning was incomplete till he underwent a formal training ,and that led to, he searching for a relevant training programmes on the net and he found WMA in Bangalore –the hub for digital marketing training ....
The best part that sajeesh recollects from the first experience with WMA and Mr. Suresh-founder WMA ,was that the call to action numbers given on the website was his personal number and not an IVR or an front office co-ordinator’s/student counsellor (which is the case with most of the institutes),a lady who rattles information which is commonly given out to any student calling in and making like 10calls a day to make a sale and educating us that the institute is ready for a fees negotiation as well.... so getting to speak to the trainer directly was the positive experience and the second impression was that Mr. Suresh wasn’t selling him the course, , but gave him career advice. That is what motivated sajeesh to relocate to Bangalore and , the IT Hub, and join WMA and part of the(happy) WMA community.
The experience he had with WMA and Mr. Suresh is rather interesting , he says that right the first phone call he found that Mr. Suresh very warm was not trying the sell the course to him but rather educate him about the opportunities available and their options
Raghvendra also did a research about the institute read testimonials and concluded wma should be the right one for him
ZIYAD our very own import from Dubai....
A techie.., doing stuffs like technical support for application software and ..., a car maniac, music lover, a classic example for word of mouth publicity.
The story goes like this he and his friend bugged of their job profile looks out for doing a course on digital marketing, so they google up and find out that in Dubai the digital marketing training more of a crash course and it is for professional who already have a minimum work experience in that category so they continue their search and finds wma, friend joins wma and is mentored(not torched..., no it doesn’t happen in wma) by Mr. Suresh, completes the course successfully and finds his place in an MNC, so following the steps of his much happy friend,, ZIYAD joins wma to find himself in one of the Mnc’s in Bangalore
Manasa Ms. Up to my own...a B C A ,basically from Hassan , got to know about wma through a common friend she was really convinced by the way her friend told her about the institute and how the training with wma could change her career path chose to train under Mr. Suresh
Last but not the least ME...... Keerthy Raman, an M B A in marketing and currently pursuing a doctoral degree in marketing ,interested in marketing, analysing human behaviour , learning new things , a social activist(don’t ask me what i did) , inquisitive, loves to socialise ,a dance freak ,somebody who analyses a particular situation a lot and cook (i mean only food,) , and love to teach kids someday, and to top it all a high intensity chatter box. so kind of a mixture of odds ,and yes one of the highly privileged and happy mortal who never had to learn anything related to computers , till now ....(lots of info about me right ,its my blog let me brag a little ya ...)
I have been the field of marketing, and advertisements mainly at the sales level so was really tired about going around the city selling ad space so started to look for a course which could provide me a boost in my career, but I did not want to navigate away from marketing since i love doing it, and wanted to make use of my previous experience in sales as well , started googling for various courses which would help me in my shift and found quite a few of them some related some unrelated and then I landed into internet marketing/seo/digital marketing ,so started working on finding extra information called and mailed almost all the institutes which provide similar trainings ,met a few of them got a feel of what seo digital marketing and seo means and then was educated on the fact that seo ‘s main object would be to make your site rank your site higher , so when i googled I found a few institutes which offered training in seo by i guess never practised it because when googled i could not find their website anywhere on top so i thought if the trainers teaching seo is unable to implement it then what’s the point in learning from them ....next was i read a lot of blogs which gave information on choosing the right training institutes so keep that in mind and zeroed down on a few institutes and was very sure I would prefer an instructor led training and not an on-line course , then the last trainer i met was Mr. Suresh ,he sounded much convincing and gave me the real picture of what the course can do to my career ,and the attributes and attitude needed ,the level of computer literacy required and he very clearly indicated that I in spite of have a few years of experience in marketing will not be considered as an experienced professional in digital marketing and will be considered a fresher an my experience shall be an add on only ,he also told me explicitly that if am looking for a major hike from my then take home then suggested me not to take it at all so I liked his honesty ,and one word he used by the end of the call was WE ARE NOT JUST YOUR TRAINERS BUT YOUR MENTORS,(it takes a lot to use a word like that to that your students under his wings teach, nourish, and set you free to fly and feel happy to see them come out with flying colours) and went ahead and met him a very patient gentlemen, who listen to all my blaah blahhhh’s and told me about his transit from being a hotel management student to a trainer in digital marketing ,that gave me confidence that I could also ape his steps, he motivated me to take this course and here i am a part of wma ,believe me I knew nothing in computers and a fear that i may never be able to learn it haunted me till i joined wma ......now ,here I am just 5 classes old ,able to write a blog and publish it(which I never ever dreamt off)
The fact that we have spoken about stuffs not too very related to things like talking about the real facts like the wma caters like provides quality training ,value for money, highly experienced and qualified trainers , live projects , friendly and flexible training atmosphere , career guidance which is available on the net ,is that we felt that sharing are real life experience would make a change in another person’s like our’s
Trainer (institute)-student relationship transcends all this and we need to think of the finer things in life, it is a bond built on trust , something to be cherish for a life time
SO , this is the story of the fantabulous five and here we are to rock this space of digital marketing, under the guidance of our mentor, these are our real life experienced , we are undergoing the training in digital marketing with wma so as to optimise our c.v and rank it better than the rest when the employer searches for it (ended it technically ....right? see we are learning .........,sooner or later this topic is going to be the IN thing in marketing so we are with the immense interest and the training of Mr. Suresh going to be the GURUS
