Featuring Social Media Courses : Learning Catalyst
How did the idea of starting a Digital Marketing Learning Place come to you?
A small note here – Learning Catalyst is not just about digital marketing, it is about new media in general. So we have other courses for design (like modern web design) and technical folks (like Android app development) also.
For someone who always wanted to be in education, this seemed liked a natural choice. No pan-India competition, high expected growth rates and a clear need for skilled professionals – seemed like a perfect recipe.
This was actually Plan B when I quit Pinstorm – a leading digital agency in the country. Plan A did not quite work while this did.
According to you, how important is it for a person to take this course?
Like any other skill, you can learn it by yourself but taking a course ensures that you learn it right and learn it fast.
Helping people achieve the objectives of joining the course is crucial to all of us. Whether it is a job for a newbie or a transition into this space for a working professional or using these tactics in one’s business, we try our best to see that people are happy with the courses and the additional customized support that we give.
