My First Digital Marketing Workshop at IISC, Bangalore

by Deepak Kanakaraju on February 3, 2016

Last weekend I conducted a digital marketing workshop at IISC Bangalore. This was the first time I conducted a workshop and met my readers and followers in person. It was a mind blowing experience.


The workshop had 82 attendees and many people had travelled from far off places to come to this workshop. One person had come all the way from Mumbai!


The training sessions were conducted by multiple trainers. I kick started Day 1 with Introduction to Digital Marketing. I talked about the opportunities in digital marketing, integrated digital marketing and the future of marketing.

Then we had Social Media Introduction by Sharan and SEO session by Shoaib Valai. Day 1 was concluded with an in-depth tutorial to paid advertising with Jayadev, Digital Marketing Manager from Exotel. Along with Jayadev, we showed everyone how to create paid campaigns using Google AdWords, and some basics on ad copywriting and keyword research.

There was not enough time to cover all the concepts because we were limited to 2 days. But in the future we hope to conduct longer workshops with deep dive in every digital marketing module.

Day 2 was kick started with a live demo of registering a domain name and installing a wordpress blog in it. One of the participants was chosen from the audience and we created a website for him. The website is!

After the first session, Suryasnata took a session on Content marketing and blogging. After lunch we had a session on blogging and affiliate marketing opportunities by Shoaib Valai again.


The day was concluded with a session on Google Analytics by Bharathidasan, Digital Marketing Strategist from

Many people have requested for a workshop in Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Chennai. I will hopefully conduct one in the near future!


The workshop was facilitated by and a huge thanks to Kushal, the CEO and his team for making this happen! They took care of the entire process from ticketing to organizing the whole event which helped us focus on the content and delivery. Without them, the workshop wouldn’t have been a success!

Hi Deepak,

I am writing this appreciation for successfully conducting the Digital Marketing Workshop.

This workshop has personally given me a lot of take away. I had basic knowledge about digital marketing but it made me realize whatever I knew was a small part of this ocean of knowledge. ‎

Thank you so much for a wonderful workshop covering most relevant topics of digital Marketing. If given a opportunity I would love to speak at one of your workshop about digital marketing and share very little knowledge I have by setting up a startup from scratch.

Thank you again for a wonderful workshop. Hope I find opportunity to speak sometime and be a part of your venture.


Deepak Kanakaraju February 7, 2016 at 2:37 pm

Thanks a lot. I will keep you posted about my next workshop!

Hi Deepak

Just wanted to drop a note of thanks for getting us a step closer to our travel blog. We have been continuously working on the website ( ) that we created during our workshop and it is coming into a great shape.

Thanks again for all help from you and the team 🙂


Venika May 16, 2016 at 6:43 pm

Would like to attend the next workshop from you. I am also a digital marketer in a MNC and have 6 years of experience. Have gone through your blog and its amazing and quite informative.
Do inform us whenever the second workshop will be organized. I would also like to suggest to keep the next workshop in Indore (M.P.) as here you will get lots of listeners and followers. We here have a degree course MBA(e-commerce) in the DAVV university itself and students would love to attend the practical workshop here.
