Speaking on the launch of this Mobile Marketing certification, Digital Vidya’s Co-founder Kapil Nakra said, “There are 2 types of businesses existing today. One that is already been disrupted by Mobile and other that will be distributed by mobile very soon. At Digital Vidya, we realize that while the businesses are aware of this fact, they are not really prepared to leverage this opportunity. Therefore, we have launched this 3-month compressive course for professionals to acquire critical Mobile Marketing skills. This course is designed by leading Mobile Marketing experts who are involved in multiple Mobile Marketing projects.”
With the recent acquisition of Digital Academy India, Digital Vidya has contributed to the success of over 11,000 professionals from over 5000 brands across Asia through over 500 digital marketing training programs. While Digital Vidya started its journey in India in 2009, it partnered with Vskills in Nov 2013 to offer its flagship program titled Certified Digital Marketing Master (CDMM), a 6-month instructor-led, online Digital Marketing master certification course.
Certified Mobile Marketing Master (CMMM) credential ensures that a candidate has mastered the skills to be able to successfully manage Mobile Marketing campaigns.
“When we started this partnership with Digital Vidya, we were confident that they would deliver on their promise. I am so glad that we are taking this relationship with Digital Vidya to the next level in establishing much-needed industry standards for Mobile Marketing skills,” said Jasneet Singh, Managing Consultant, Vskills.
Sharing his views about the program, Sanjay Mehta, Joint CEO of Social Wavelength and Mobile Jury at Cannes Lions 2015 says, “I have closely observed the growth of Digital Vidya since 2010. Digital Vidya’s training programs have made a significant contribution in the growth of Digital Marketing Industry in India. With this program in Mobile Marketing, Digital Vidya will further fuel the growth of Digital Media ecosystem in India.”
Speaking on the launch of this new Mobile Marketing certification program, Digital Vidya’s Lead Trainer and Co-founder of Social Panga, Himanshu Arora said “The mobile phone is not just a slab of screen anymore, but a window into life – it’s like a part of our personality, the one friend that we just can’t let go of. Consumer behavior on mobile makes it even more important and relevant for marketers to strategize their presence on mobile. While on phone, users are in an “action oriented” phase, acting upon their wishes, thoughts and need of the hour. And DV starting with dedicated Mobile Marketing course, it is even more relevant to have a know-how of mobile marketing in this dynamic environment.”
Considering the ever-expanding importance of Mobile Marketing skills and strong reach among its 10,000 plus alumni across Asia, Digital Vidya is offering the first batch of its Mobile Marketing course scheduled to start on July 19, 2015 as invite-only. Anyone who’s interested in joining this program but not an alumnus of Digital Vidya can request for an invite to participate in this course.
