She finally decided to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a fashion designer & went on to become a successful one, showcasing her work at Lakme Fashion Week & her collection featured at various high-end retail shops in Mumbai. As every Fashion designer needs an online platform to showcase their collection and to build their brand was the main reason, she opted for a digital marketing course at Freelancers Academy. We had a brief conversation with her about her journey with us:

Q1. Why did you choose digital marketing?
I chose to learn digital marketing because I wanted to promote my business online. Initially I hired someone for handling my social media. This was my first exposure to digital marketing & I found it really interesting. This made me really curious about digital marketing & I decided to learn it myself.

Q2.what is your educational background?
I’ve done B.Com from Podar college and diploma in business management from Welingkars.

Q3. How did you come across freelancers academy and made you choose it?
I got to know about freelancers academy through Nikhil bhanushali who is an ex-student at freelancers academy. Apart from the great reviews I received from my friend Nikhil, Ms. Priti Pase, the Director of Freelancers Academy cleared all my doubts & explained me about the practical implications of the course to my business which encouraged me to enroll for the course

Q4. How was your overall experience in freelancer’s academy?
I would say my overall experience at freelancers academy was amazing because they definitely stood up to what was promised. Apart from theory classes we learned how to practically implement everything we learned right from class 1. I made my website myself while doing the course & it was up & running within few days

Q5. What are the struggles you faced while progressing through the course?
The fact that I am not from marketing background was my concern. It takes time but you can be a pro at digital marketing if you put your heart into it. As mentioned, I made my own website with the help of team at Anuvaa digital Marketing Agency as a part of internship Freelancers Academy provide.
