A Little About Me:
My Name is Niket Sharma and I am a Digital Marketing professional from Mumbai, India.
I was born and brought up in Mumbai and completed my schooling from St Lawrence high school and graduation and post-graduation from Thakur College Of Science and Commerce.
In the year 2018, I was first introduced to the world of digital marketing while completing my post-graduation.
One day our college professor was taking lectures on search engine optimization and Google ads. Since the lectures were benign conducted practically, I took interest in both the topics.
I came back home and did extensive research on both the fields and came to about what, how and why of both the topics.
My interest was more inclined towards search engine optimization, that’s why I started to explore more about it. I started reading blogs, watching YouTube videos, webinars and much more.
Within a year, I came to know about A-Z of search engine optimization. (I never did any course in SEO. Whatever I have learnt about SEO is because of will and ability to learn about it )
Why I Started This Blog:
Today, digital marketing is one of the hottest topics in the world. Everyone wants to learn more and more about digital marketing, but most of the people don’t know where to start from.
Some people enroll for paid digital marketing courses and pay thousands of dollars which is of no value. I’ll explain to you why.
A digital marketing course can never make you a professional digital marketer, unless and until you do and implement all your learning on your own. Courses will not give you any benefits in the long run.
Nowadays, digital marketing courses are gimmicks.
Many courses and digital marketing training institutes will attract you by saying that they give 100% placement assistance and advanced practical training.
But the harsh reality is that all such courses are money making ideas.
That’s why in the year 2018 I decided that I’ll start my own blog and guide people and help them in learning everything about digital marketing, blogging, how to make money online and much more.
However, starting a blog was not at all an easy task for me.
One of the major challenges was to write content. Being a non-native english speaker, I found it extremely difficult to write content, especially in english. But I decided not to back off.
That’s when I took a pen and a notebook and started practising content writing. After completing 10 notebooks, I was able to write quite well, but still I had a long way to go.
Here is the images of those notebooks;
Almost after one year of continuous practice and hard work, I was able to write content that cloud satisfy the needs of my target audience.
However, I am still learning and trying to hone my skill across all the major domains of digital marketing, so that I can serve my audience well.
What All Topics Does The Digital Skipper Covers:
At The Digital Skipper, we try to cover almost each and everything about digital marketing, blogging, affiliate marketing, tips to make money online, frugal living ideas and more.
All the content published on this site is based on my personal experience and extensive research. Also, I believe that practical learning is more important than theory.
That’s why I try to publish more practical content.
I look after the content, SEO and development part of The Digital Skipper. I also have my partner Mohan with me who looks after the social media marketing and promotional part of The Digital Skipper.
A Little About Mohan:
Mohan and I were in the same college and did our graduation and post-graduation together. In fact, he is the one who told me about India’s best blogger, Harsh Agrawal. Since then, I have been following Harsh Sir and his blog everyday.
Mohan has a deep and sound knowledge of social media marketing.
He takes care of almost all the social media channels of The Digital Skipper. Whether it is about creating social media content or promoting blog posts, he takes care of everything.
Apart from his deep interest in social media, he also loves playing cricket, reading books, blogs and much more.
As a person, he is good at heart.
In fact, he is one who paid for domain & hosting for the digital skipper.
With Mohan, I plan to take this blog at the next level, so that we can help as many people in learning digital marketing, blogging, make money online and much more.
