    • Please give a brief introduction of Streamlyn Academy and how its different from other institutes which offers digital marketing, Are there any Tie-ups with Agencies?
    Streamlyn Academy is an initiative of Streamlyn Media which is a Singapore based publisher media agency. Basically, there are a couple of factors that differentiate Streamlyn Academy with the other institutes offering digital marketing training:
    • Being an initiative of Streamlyn media group, the education paradigm is entirely unique with live projects taught by full time faculty members who are the digital marketers of the agency and supported by a full-fledged placement team.

    • We are the pioneer in delivering education on programmatic advertising, which is said to be the future of digital marketing.

    • What are your views on the future of digital marketing? How do you think it'll change it in coming days?

    Digital Marketing is a rapidly booming industry and has a lot of Growth Potential especially in a Country like Indian where the industry is still in its baby stages. There is a huge demand for Skilled Professionals and there exists a lack of the same.

    Digital Marketing is a constantly evolving field and one cannot predict the exact changes that are to happen, but yes with increasing number of users the Programmatic Advertising, is going to be the next big thing in Digital marketing.

    • The following three aspects make people think twice before entering digital marketing industry. What do you think? Please give 5 reasons why people should choose digital marketing as their career. 
                            a. digital marketing has almost no university courses
                            b. Almost all digital marketing experts entered the field accidentally
                            c. It doesn't involve coding.

    Well, it’s a fact that very few universities are in tune with digital marketing courses today and that digital marketing does not involve coding. However, I can’t agree that digital marketers are created accidentally. Digital marketing is an art by itself and people interested in this art are great digital marketers today.

    The 5 reasons why digital marketing is a great career option are:

    1. The Growth Potential – As I mentioned earlier this industry is still in the nascent stage so there is a huge growth potential in this industry.
    2. The Job Prospects – Due to huge demand of skilled professionals this industry has a lot of Job prospects
    3. No specific education requirement – To join the field of Digital Marketing there is no specific education requirements.
    4. Flexibility – If you start working as freelancer in Digital Marketing you basically are your own boss and can work as you wish but you need to be efficient and a workaholic that is the reason not everybody can become a freelancer.
    5. No Revenue Cap – There is an old saying that Your work speaks same goes in the field of Digital Marketing if you are a good digital marketer and get to know your way around this industry there is pretty much no limit to how much you can earn in the next 5 years.
