Q1 How did you become a digital marketer? Please share your career story!

I am an accidental digital marketer. But once I fell into it, I never looked back.I learned different marketing concepts by reading on SEJ, SEL, & Neil Patel Blog.

From removing Google Manual penalty on a City Local UK listing site, Handling more than 100 ORM projects in a year, and helping my company to feature on sites like Forbes, Inc, Huffington, etc. are quite a few achievements that inspire me to work hard regularly.

I wanted to be a developer. My training teacher motivated me to go for SEO training as I was a MBA student. I am glad I worked on her advice.
