Meet Karan Kapoor, DSIM’s Ex-trainee and Founder of ‘EducationInsta’, an Online Education portal.
Get to know here how this professional is working to bridge the gap present in Indian Education System.

Q1. We welcome you Karan. Please let us know a little more about yourself and your startup, ‘EducationInsta’.

Ans. Hello Everyone! To start with; I did my Engineering from Amity University and am currently working as an IT Engineer with Cisco Partner. I have previously worked with companies like Airtel. Along with, I have started my own company ‘EducationInsta’. This is an online portal where students & parents can search Schools, Playschools, Grades, Universities, Colleges around the world. Our office is located in Noida and we are a team of 15-20 people.
 

Q2. Why you chose education sphere. Basically we want to get insights of inspiration that helped you start EducationInsta?

 
Ans. Why this; because I see there is a huge gap in education system in India. 1 and half year back, I was sitting in my room and there were three of my friends. We started like “Hume to pata hi nahi tha ki hume 10th k baad kya subjects lene hain, papa bol rahe hain beta Engineer ban jaao, mummy bol rahi hain beta Doctor ban jaao.” Seeking the demand I took combined.
I started giving it a thought that there should be a system where children can go and find out the career answers with their own consent. So, to meet the purpose, we came up with EducationInsta.
 

Q3. Yeah! Secret got revealed. Now, let us know why you chose Digital Marketing Training and on top of it why DSIM?

 
Ans. Ok! Yes, it’s true that most of the people see things on roads, but right now our target audience are individuals who are studying. Majority of people have mobile devices, schools and universities are asking students to bring their own devices which we name as ‘BYOD’. There is nothing better platforms than Online, Social Media, and Internet to reach to millions of users. So, Digital Marketing obviously. We need business; we need to let people know about us.
 
Let me tell you when I searched digital marketing course in Delhi, the first name I got was of DSIM. At the point it was clear that people who have this sort of marketing capabilities, they will definitely help us to learn & grow. And, yes obviously I read the available DSIM reviews & all and also asked people. Obviously, there are mix & mix sort of availabilities. I saw DSIM’s campaigns on YouTube, Google, Facebook and for initial 15-20 days kept on seeing these. And final thought was that these people are really good, “Charity begins from home; aap apna khud ka accha kar rahe ho to mera to hoga hi hoga.”
 

Q4. Do you think that DSIM’s training has helped you to come up with your current project or in enhancing your existing business strategies? If yes, let us know in details?

Ans. Absolutely yes! Earlier I had no clue how to use Facebook, YouTube, Google, etc. for the branding purpose. Now, I have the broader spectrum. To name a trainer, Karan Sharma is brilliant. We went there to learn marketing and I am doing it right now.
Before joining DSIM, I was making normal Facebook and YouTube pages with no content at all. I had no clue about Google Crawlers; what they are; how the strategy works in organic listing.
 
Now, we know how exceptionally SEO works and are using keywords on daily basis. I was taking care of the entire work; now I have a segregated team with Social Media, SEO, Content, etc. departments.
 
DSIM helped me know how to grow in my business. We are getting more and more views daily on our websites, more and more registrations also.
 

Q5. Digital Marketing; what you think of it and which sort of calculations it will bring in nearby future?

Ans. Considering the business point of view, digital marketing can take your business from 10% to 80%.
 
Today, everyone is moving to digital platforms; you have smart mobiles, smart TVs. You can do your works online. And, when everything & everyone is online, you can’t afford to be on roads. It’s needed to work on your marketing strategies and there are plenty of things you need to learn in digital marketing and if you are not accompanying the skills, don’t hope for your business getting scaled up.
 
Seeing the growth the industry has seen within last 1-2 years, Education system will completely get changed. Everything will become digital. It’s not like that changes will take place; these have already started taking place and in future, these will get on to be better & improved. And, eventually you can see the transformation to make India digital. The future is really bright.
 

Q6. Do you use digital marketing to gain benefits in your business? If yes, what are the strategies?

Ans. To talk of digitally, we have a big team of content and Infographics. These are crafted on regular basis and we tag known institutes. Also, we do send flyers to schools & colleges and request them to come & register themselves on our portal and get most out of it. It’s actually working. There are big names that have started following us.
 
There are different ways to do the branding and we are practicing the sorted ones.
Education is a huge sphere and we keep on improving our presence. To say in fewer words, we are focusing on Infographics, content and advertisements. Though to say, somehow we also do Traditional marketing in a limited way.
 

Q7. While doing marketing, which is your favorite platform?

 
Ans. To say favorites; mine are basically three and I cannot differentiate among them. First is content; if you are coming up with good content, people will come and read your websites/blogs. The first impression is the last impression and if you are not impressive with your content, you won’t be able to make people stop & read you.
 
Secondly, SEO and Social Media are on the same number. If you are doing Social Marketing you need to work on your keywords also while putting some content and in those content it should be SEO.
 

Q8. How much you keep as your budget to invest into your digital marketing strategies?

 
Ans. I have just completed the entire learning and to be very honest, we are spending around 20% on it. It comes as approx. 30-40 k on an average every month.
 

Q9. Have you received any sort of funding or are looking for? We just want to know the secrets of your finance management?

 
Ans. Of course, why not! We are three partners; all three are working and we are getting this fund from our salaries. Yes, for sure everybody needs investment. But, right now we are focusing on making a huge database; 70-80% has been achieved and hopefully, we will achieve our target very soon. Then, we will move towards investment.
 

Q10. It would be grateful to know your experience with DSIM and with how many points you will rate the training program (on a scale of 1-10)?

 
Ans. Yes, experience is quite fruitful; I have learnt a lot. The intro about marketing was delivered in an exceptional way and I would say it worked to create a spark in us to learn further. In fewer words, slowly & gradually we grew from a KG std. to 10th Std. From learning point of view, really a decent job by DSIM.
 
I am happy that I spent that much money and have no regrets why I joined DSIM. I have already recommended two friends and one of them has joined. So, Informative, Brilliance and Fruitful are the words to illustrate the training program.It is one of the best Digital Marketing Institutes present in India.
 
To say, “Earlier we were like amateurs now we are semi-pro. I won’t say professional because you become this by undertaking job/business responsibilities.”
 

Q11. Glad to know your experience at DSIM! Moving ahead, where you want to see ‘EducationInsta’ in the upcoming years?

 
Ans. In Digital Marketing I‘ll say if somebody comes and search anything related to education, I want EducationInsta link to come on top. Not paid ups; paid ups can anyone do. I want this in organic listing. I wish that individuals across the country whenever seeking an answer of “Hamare bacche ko kya karna chahiye?” without any doubt they should come to our portal. The sort of repute Google has in search, I want it for EducationInsta. And, I am sure we’ll be able to do it keeping most of the information.

Q12. Great vision! Your message for young individuals who want to shape up their career in Digital marketing or in Entrepreneurship.

 
Ans. “If you are creative, a good & out of the box thinker and want to contribute to Indian Market, you should go ahead.

Subsequent to performing detailed study, Aman came up to selecting accessories and realizing the world is big to small things or simply receiving in a way that the small things most of the time offer you the biggest pursuits of happiness, brought bigsmall.in into presence.
In the midst of the month November 2015, he and his elder brother at long last chose to wrap up different tasks and grabbed bigsmall.in as their major concern. He saw that the site is witnessing increased traffic as they utilized online channels for doing the promotions. It was somewhat troublesome for them to work along this current model as the items present on their site were not sought one but a greater amount of revelation items.
The majority of the items is enormously customized and is one of a kind in their outline and ease of use, so it’s impractical for clients to discover them amid inquiry. The duo understood that they need to offer answers for people regarding their everyday prerequisites with particular points. They wish to offer something, something subject to people’s interests rather than traditional items like teddy bears, chocolates and others. Bigsmall.in tries to take care of every day issues with peculiarity in the things displayed.

What makes the working phenomenon at bigsmall.in interesting is that the team carries personal communication with clients. Mr. Aman says that at this stage, we can deal with clients’ close to taking care of grievances and so, we go personally and have an individual correspondence with each of the clients once they place the order and the other after delivery to know their fulfillment level in the wake of getting the item.

Communications is one of the major components of direct marketing. With the help of communications, customer relations improve. Those who rely more on one-time sale don’t end up having them as permanent customers. To maintain a long term relationship with the clients serve them with the best. This helps the brand to use the existing audience for other campaigns too.
  1. Frequency of the direct marketing:
One should always set a limit to make sure that how many times a particular message is to be dropped. Frequency plays an important role as it helps you know in how many attempts you get a response from the customer. All we need to do is to contact them again with a hope that they might show interest in the goods, products or services provided by you. Determine an ideal frequency for campaign before running it. A consistent presence helps you in urging the clients to look forward to your offer.
  1. Proper execution of the plan:
Before running a campaign there are certain points you need to take care of. The proper execution of the plan is as important as the plan itself. The co-ordination and communication between all the activities is necessary to gain profit from it. A strategy without execution is a complete waste of time.
  1. Maximize response levels:
In order to generate more number of responses from your direct marketing draft a message giving a clear cut idea about your objective. Offer incentives like prizes or discounts this helps in increasing the rate of response. The higher is the response level, the more number of people you bring in. To maximize it use different and distinctive approaches.
  1. Manage the budget:
The necessity of financial control is very important to earn profit from direct marketing. This way of marketing is mostly expensive so you need to make sure that the cost spend per person is achieved. Always view your customers individually to maintain a long term relationship. The life time value of a customer can be maintained by using these tactics.
  1. Always apply a unique approach:
Every time you run a direct marketing campaign keep in mind that your approach must be different from the one you used last time to reach out audience.  Your unique and consistent efforts help you targeting the right customers. This makes you stand out from other marketers and more number of people get attracted towards your offer. You can also approach new customers this way.
  1. Satisfy your customer needs:
Your main aim should be satisfying the various needs of customers. Maintaining a long lasting relationship with clients helps you earn long term benefits from them. One should always cultivate the present customers, reactivate the past ones and look out for new ones.
