1. From` internet of things’ to `internet of me’, how is technology helping you in doing your business better today?
Given we are in the business of Digital Marketing education, every function of our organization whether its sales, marketing or product development or even finance is fully driven by and dependent on technology. Here are few examples:
Our Digital Marketing certification programs are delivered completely online. We’ve literally stopped conducting classroom based programs.
Anyone in our organization can work from anywhere. For the point mentioned above, our customers can also learn from anywhere in the world.
Our sales & marketing teams completely rely on insights & data driven through analytics & crm solution for their day to day decision making.
