Hello everyone, This is Prabhakar Alok.
I hope you guys are keeping safe in the pandemic days.
So, Today I am going to write about the life story of every digital marketers.
I am an active SEO Player in Digital Marketing Practitioner facebook community.
So, Randomly I was scrolling feeds on DMP group and I found a curious post from Karan parwani.
Look at the image below.
So, I just decided to compile all the comments from this post and you can read and knows about the everyone’s Digital Marketers Life Story.
So, Are you guys ready to know about the Digital Marketing Experts Story?
Okay, So, lets start.
Sharath Simha says I actually started of 2 other core business & Digital Marketing was never in the picture. Later when I started seeing leads through Digital Marketing, it made me realize the potential of it.
Also the fact that my current 2 businesses somewhere has up sell of Digital Marketing as one of the potential.
We register private limited companies through out chartered accountants.
I started observing that these startups were not on digital platform.
So I started seeing the opportunity of mentoring them the potential it can give them by going digital.
So there it is my story. What started of as 2 core businesses have become 3 now.
Rahul Singh says 6 years NEET preparation. Finally samajh aya one fine day that I don’t want to be a doctor. ( I understand that, I never wanted to be a doctor)
so I started exploring, tried couple of things (teaching, music, guitar, writing, banking jobs etc.) and finally I realized I have always been interested in knowing how things rank on Google so started looking for it.
Figured out about SEO, then digital marketing and then content marketing. took a digital marketing course, then provided my content writing services and then fell in love with Funnels and Facebook Ads.
Trying to figure out everything in Facebook ads, Google ads and Funnels currently.
Maza aa raha hai ( I am Enjoying a lot).
Sohom Bakshi Says Mummy-papa– hamara beta 10th k baad science lega. (Mom and dad discussed that our son will take Science Course after his 10th Exam).
Me- Okay, sounds interesting.
My Mom and Dad- hamara beta engineering krega (Our son will go to engineering college)
Me: Okay, sounds cool.
Mom and Dad- Beta government job ki prepare krega. (After engineering, Our Son will prepare for Government job).
Me- (After getting frustrated by education system & watching few motivational movies) Abhi to main drop-out krunga or Entrepreneurial journey start krunga. (I will dropout and will start my Entrepreneurial Journey)
After doing 2-3 months research chosen digital marketing because then it’s in boom.
And I am not any passionate digital marketer but I have passion in doing business.
So, I know that digital marketing is the thing which can give me various opportunities to work with different business.
So, I opted for it & with it since last 2.5 yrs almost.
More to say.. but aaj ke liye bs itna hi. (I want to say more, but its enough for today)
I did not realize those were ads. I thought those were just normal posts.
So I tried creating similar posts.
You know. A post with a picture, a button called Shop Now, and headline with it.
The more I searched, the more I learnt that these are ads, and not regular posts.
Slowly slowly I started exploring the digital field, began writing, then blogging, then self learning, implementing, courses, internship, job and now totally immersed in this.
Since I have applied in my last, I only had the option of work from home internships and in that most of internship were of content writing.
So after few rejection , I got selected for 4 internships in which two were paying me around 5k each, other was unpaid and last one was paying around 15,000 INR.
Again life was set.
But, The one which was giving me 15k made me write articles like hell and since I was new to this Digital World I was too excited and used to submit like sincere students. Since it was news portal they used to give articles at random timing and I used to finish it.
Some of my articles started ranking in first page and then I started learning about SEO. they just used to give work and never taught anything . SEO was being done by their team.
There was even a time when I used to write live commentary for them during IPL time and my friends use to enjoy the same match.
But twist came when I was expecting my 15k as stipend. They started giving excuses like CA is working, legal things, blah blah and when I inquired with other content writers on their portal I came to know that they have not paid anyone.
Complaining to internshala was of also no use. so, instead of abusing their HR which many of my fellow interns did, I bought domain, hosting and made similar website like them (news portal).
Hired interns like them though my offer for stipend was less ( 1500₹ each interns and also some were unpaid tbh ) but I trained them in very best possible manner and i can say each one worked delicately and were super happy to work on that website.
In next 8 months, we crossed their website traffic and also alexa rank and We achieved alexa rank of around 14k.
And even made decent amount of money through adsense and guest post. The day I crossed alexa rank and traffic ( though I used SEMRush for seeing their traffic and its not 100% correct and alexa rank is now not that much of use but tbh that time I didnt have so deep knowledge, Just was good in onpage seo and how to bring traffic )
I took screenshot of alexa semrush and my GA and send to their HR trainer. Though this was very stupid of me to do but that I felt this is the best way.
So, this is how i started my digital marketing journey.
After few month I had to join my placement so could not devote much time so I sold that website.
I had a business idea related to customizable shoes so I approached the right people to do the job for me but for some reason it couldn’t come to life.
I joined them temporarily realizing then that they had no online presence and I created the online presence for them from scratch and hence accidentally falling in love with marketing.
But I took matter into my own hands, started learning stuff myself, earned through adsense, and then within 6 months spoke on stage about blogging, trained people in digital marketing about Copywriting, Affiliate Marketing, Content Marketing, SEO, SMO, Web Analytics, Email Marketing, and then landed a job in digital marketing in a corporate company.
Worked there from 2017 as an Email Marketer, HTML Email Designer, Blog Writer, etc and then in 2019 started my own company in Jammu, training people in digital marketing, providing Digital marketing services and ran my own Affiliate Marketing projects.
And the journey is continuing since then…
Rauf Ahmed says Fascinating word for me was laptop did a few workshops in Microsoft excel and so on that wanted to do something related to Laptop.
And got to know about Digital Marketing luckily a good offline course was the stepping stone for me and then focused on creating creating content and its importance and now in love with Digital marketing.
(This is the beginning of my story… soon post my ongoing journey as well).
Mohammed Toufiq says I was in Telemarketing lately, got to know about Digital Marketing and the modules in it.
I started working as an SEO intern in a small agency and now got 1 year experience in this digital marketing industry.
Looking forward to learning new skills and take existing skills to another level.
So, guys, that’s it, I tried to cover relevant Life story of Digital Marketers.
