With the Indian internet population at over 650 million users (as of May 2022), the digital marketing industry is growing. With the industry showing an enormous projected growth potential and an expected paucity of trained professionals, many students, graduates and young professionals are looking to get on the digital marketing bandwagon. Owing to Covid 19 there are even more Indians spending time online. This has led to rise in digital marketing jobs and also choice in terms of digital marketing courses and training institutes in India.

To cater to the growing need for these courses, a number of training companies, institutes and universities have started various Digital marketing courses and social media marketing courses. There are tons of books written on Digital Marketing and YouTube Channels covering digital marketing. Based on our experience in digital over the last 15 years here is a guide on some of the best institutes that you could choose from. Since this is an extensive article we've split it into sections to make it easier for you to navigate and read through.

Short Video Guide on how to select the right digital marketing course in India:

Criteria you should use for evaluating digital marketing courses and institutes

Before opting for a digital marketing course online or offline, here are some pointers to evaluate the desired institute or course structure.

  • Certification: Certification is no substitute for skills learned and hands-on industry experience but, nevertheless, can add to the CV of a fresher making an entry into the field or for a professional looking to make a career switch. Opt for certification courses recognized by various educational bodies and corporates.
  • Course Curriculum & Faculty Expertise: Gauge the Institute or the course offered based on the curriculum, faculty expertise, training modules and relevance to the current industry trends & practices. A program being run by a digital marketing agency themselves is very impactful.
  • Reviews and recommendations: Check for reviews and recommendations from industry experts & former students through Google, online education portals or discussion forums. Reach out to alumni on LinkedIn for their direct feedback, where feasible.
  • Placements: Explore the institute's placement opportunities or institutional tie-ups for live projects & hands-on experience on acquired digital marketing skills.

Here are some of the popular websites/companies/institutes offering Digital Marketing courses which will save you a considerable amount of time in research if you're looking for one for yourself.

Maximum learning can only be gleaned from actual hands-on, on-the-job experience.

Hi, I think the most important thing too assess is the quality of faculty that you get at a particular institute. I did my digital marketing training from simply digital (New Delhi) and most of our classes were taken by IITians. But at the end of the day if you want to build a career in digital marketing, you need complete involvement. Making your own website and experimenting on that, is what, will help you learn the most!!

That's a nice review. Helpful indeed. There are lot of budding training centers as well, who might not be doing aggressive marketing, but focus on quality training. One such I know is Talenteye Academy in Bangalore, which offers digital marketing course for working professionals only. Trainers are real life digital marketers in big consumer goods companies and IIM Bangalore alumni. You can think of reviewing them as well.

With the advent of entrepreneurship and growing number of startups , online marketing which incorporates various aspects like SEO, paid ads, SMM, Email marketing etc are all maturing in terms of there offerings within India. Lots of good courses are there. Prima facie this is one of the most dynamic professions. So things which worked yesterday wont work today and the same going forward. So the focus i feel should also be put on strategy creation/development rather then just technical. What differentiates marketers from each other is usually strategizing and deployment.

Hey Kumar - Thanks for writing in. If you have lower budgets and dont want to get a technology team in place then its best to go for Shopify or Zepo. They would allow you to go to market quickly. The platform can be upgraded to a different one once you scale up. Hope this helps.

Hello Aanchal, You can do this SEO training at institute which offers hands on experience on projects. Because in SEO hands on experience is mandatory. There is not special certifications for SEO, your capability of work and implementation will count in SEO. I suggest you to do the entire digital marketing rather than only SEO. Thanks Md Azharuddin

Hi Anup, IIM Bangalore has started offering digital marketing training. But this course is more useful for getting a degree as the course is only for 4 days. Which is not enough for hands on experience in digital marketing.

Hi, I am a dad, whose daughter wants to take up Digital Marketing as a career option. Searching for input that I can process as to where I'd get the best value for the money I'd have to invest in building measurable DM skills in my daughter I landed on this Blog post. After carefully and patiently going through this Blog post I decided I'd share my re-action to its content. Let me start of by saying, Thank you for creating this content. I do appreciate the effort it took. Here is my re-action. When I visited the website of these DM schools, finding the information I wanted such as: How was the training syllabus defined / developed? How was the training syllabus updated? i.e. the basis / period / triggers used for syllabus updation? Who were the trainers for either the entire program or a specific block of the program? What were their pedigree? What was the technique(s) used for delivering the training. Okay so its all via the web, great, now how about a paragraph or two explaining exactly how - Via the web? Especially for an old man of 63 years who will make the investment and is concerned about ROI. What was the participant handout material? What was the participant evaluation process? How is one to understand whether a participant had absorbed enough to - Build a career in Digital Marketing? A whole load of questions shrouded in Grey. No answers. On one website a telephone number was give right at the top, I called. The less I say about that transaction the better for all concerned. My take is that Digital Marketing is not rocket science, how did I figure that out? Oh Well, most websites state that there is not minimum qualifications to do their course(s). That's how. I'd be really obliged if I could get some - Real Value Add - information about a Digital Marketing Training Program - Mumbai based (that's where I'm located). I believe that a reasonable business opportunity exists, for and individual or a school, who can deliver measurable Digital Marketing training to its participants and is a load more transparent about how this is done. My plea, charge whatever you believe is a fair fee for services rendered I've no issues with that at all , in turn deliver measurable throughput - with a real helping of transparency. Anyone listening, anyone out there?

Hi Sunil, Digital Marketing is a really interesting and useful course if you are looking for a career growth in online world or hoping to start with freelancing. With the growing demand and dependency on internet, getting formally trained in it will add immense knowledge which is very much required before starting as a freelancer. Looking at your interest in content writing, I am sure you can you can use this skill set to your advantage once you get a training. After the training I think you will have a fair idea on how to combine all aspects and set things right. I suggest you take training from The Brand Salon as I myself undergone the same and it really helped me in my career advancement. Hope this was of some help for you.

Hi Varun, Thanks :) We are glad the post helped you save some precious time on research! Market Motive courses are amongst the best in the market especially in terms of covering all the latest trends in the industry.

Dear Vaishali, In our view some of these courses which have international tie ups would hold good in USA and UK. For instance, NIIT and Digital Academy are offering their programs in tie up with Digital Marketing Institute, Ireland and these are globally recognized. Some of the domestic courses might not be recognized abroad but what really matters at the end of the day is practical experience that you have in this field. Hope that clarifies your question.

Hi Vineet, thanks for reaching out to us. With regards to physical courses, we have heard of Echovme running some excellent programs so you can check them out but unfortunately most of the good courses are online. Do let us know if we can help you with any other information.

I am full time SEO & SMO professional (currently self employed) and a trainer as well. I am from engineering background and have got around 6+ years of experience. Do you guys think that moving to Digital Marketing would be a good idea for me at this point of time? If yes then which course and what type of training mode would be better for me. Honestly speaking I am not very much comfortable on online training and have got tight schedules as well. So please suggest me something which will work for me.

Hello Team, My situation is mostly similar to soumya, I've around 5-6 years of experience in SEO, Social media, Internet marketing, Blogging and mobile promotion and looking for some course related to Digital marketing which can help to boost up my knowledge and help to grow career in the same filed because I don't want to make change in my domain and looking for good career opportunity. I've reviewed courses of Educart, NIIMS certificate and currently the NIIT digital marketing diploma. From first two I didn't get what they have any kind of specialization in courses they have shown for professionals having experience in the similar fields by conversing the course executives. I'm looking for any institute which can help me to improve knowledge, work on more live projects relevant to these technologies to add additional boost up in career. Please help me to select best course available in market which is suitable for field professionals and help to improve knowledge and career growth. Waiting for some good responses.


@Team Social Beat, Thanks for the reply, I could not find any such good & physical DM courses in my city, Kolkata. And right now it is not possible for me to move out and as I told I am not that much comfortable in online courses. You won't believe, the reputed courses in Kolkata on DM are very very average and I am sure those things I can learn easily from my end only. So as of now, no, I did not get any remarkable course and planning to get my own hands dirty. And as you guys said, I too believe that this is just the beginning of DM in India. What do you think? Please feel absolutely free to correct me. @Vedant, I am really very sorry for this late reply. Actually was busy with my website launch. I really appreciate that you wanted to contact me. Will respond to you ASAP on your email id.

Let us know if we can help in anyway Indrani. A good way to start learning (for free) is to read up on the top blogs like Moz, Neil Patel, Matt Cutts (Blog & YouTube) before taking up a full course.

Hi .. Thank You for this list. I work for an ad agency in Bangalore and I am looking to make a career in Digital Marketing. I m thinking of taking up a certification course or something in the hope that the transition into Digital will be easier. Any career advice on this matter would be appreciated. I would like to get into Social Media Strategy and wondering what would be the best way to go about it., Thank You.


Hey Chithra, Have You done any courses now?

Absolutely, we couldnt agree more. Social Media is powerful and needs to be used responsibly and ethically. Ofcourse, there is paid PR even offline but its time a line is drawn.
