As with every other field, there are two ways to learn digital marketing. One way is to become a self-taught digital marketer and learn the intricacies by yourself. The other way is to enroll in a proper digital marketing course or training program. The advantages offered by a standard training program include practical experience, mentorship by experts and a peer network you can reach out to for help.

3. Digital Institute of Internet Marketing
At DIIM, the Digital Marketing Training is conducted by the internet marketing expert Jaydip Parikh. They offer the course in two formats: full-time for freshers and a crash course for working professionals. With not more than ten students in one bath, they ensure that every participant gets one-to-one attention.
The digital marketing training covers three courses:
- SEO course

- Social media course
Their placement partners are well-known companies such as Infibeam, Hidden Brains, Tej SOlPro, Mile Core and SEO Rank to name a few. DIIM also offers Google Adwords crash course where the students are given practical experience in handling AdWords bids, creating landing pages and how to use Google analytics.
The drawbacks of this course are non-transparent pricing, no fixed time duration and no option for online learning. They do not cover email marketing, inbound marketing, and content marketing. This might be a drawback for those looking to enroll in a 360 degree digital marketing course.
4. Digital Media Marketing Course
