TimesPro Digital Marketing Course | Should I Join? How Effective Will The Placements Be?

TimesPro Digital Marketing Course is one the famous courses in India. Times Pro is into digital marketing training and the biggest advantage for them is the brand name of Times of India. As a Digital Marketing Trainer, I would love to offer the great quality training to those common man too who can’t afford to study with huge investments.

Before me started taking my passion as profession, I would love to let you know that I worked with top MNC’s like Accenture, CSS Corp, and Amazon India for 6.5 years totally and I have a great taste of corporate standard training. My dream as to offer the same standard and quality training to people who are having lower budget for digital marketing course.

The primary purpose of my visit to Timespro office is not to join. But to get to know their modules and standard of teaching that is worth 83,0000 INR.

To better understand the standard of teaching, I personally visited their office in Chennai (Behind Globus Building, Pondy Bazzar, T.Nagar) and observed few information. I would like to share them with you.

  • Their primary training is not into Digital Marketing. They offer several other course. Digital marketing is one among Them.
  • They have a good interior and pleasant atmosphere of an educational organization.
  • They took enough time to discuss and explain the digital marketing course details. If I remember correctly they offered two course modules. One with 35,000 INR and another with 85,000 INR.
  • They claimed that they offer placements and support. But I was unable to see the placement showcase related to digital marketing. What I understood is that they have tie ups with leading banking sectors. They have the display of students placed in different banks. When I asked them about those photos, they said they are related to banks.

The above mentioned details are my own opinion and I have not written this post to damage the reputation of the institution.

Let me come to the answer for the question, should I join the TimesPro Digital Marketing course? How effective will the placements be?

I would suggest, you can join the course with them provided

  • You are unable to get any other quality institute to train you on Digital Marketing.
  • You can afford their course fee.
  • If you are a person who does not need spoon feeding or personal support.
Even though they are branded, I would strongly suggest you to follow the best practices to select a digital marketing institute that you deserve.

I have published a video in You Tube about how to select the best digital marketing training institute in Chennai. However, you can still watch the video to get ideas even if you are from different location.

If watching the above video is not comfortable for you, you can consider these points to select your digital marketing training institute.

Rather than selecting a training institute, I would suggest you to learn to validate the trainer and institute.

Another point is to keep your requirements ready. Approach any institute and ask them your requirements. If they say yes, they are the right person to teach you.

Few requirements are:
  • Why do you need to learn about digital marketing? I mean what is your goal?
  • Will the institute work along with your goal?
  • Is your trainer already has hands-on experience on what you are expecting or he is going to teach you?
    • If you want to make money after learning digital marketing, I would want you to check the trainer is already making money. If not he is not the right person to teach you. If you still select someone who does not know how to do, it is almost like learning swimming from someone who has never swum in his life.
  • How much time can you spend on the course?
  • What is your preferred time slot?

  • Ratings and Reviews

    Never ever trust or believe ratings and reviews. The institutes have already read the students mind and people fall prey to fake ratings and reviews.
  • If an institution has a 5-star rating for 9,000 reviews, do you really believe it is possible to have one? I believe at least 10 people would have at least selected a 4-star rating.
    Find below the example of a fake review

Potentially Fake Review
  • In the above google review, I have shared my observation. The value 1 review says the account holder has left a single review in his lifetime. If the person has the habit of reviewing the business, he or she must be a part of the Google Local Guide Program. Else they might have reviewed other business too. Here, the possibility of the reviews posted may intentionally be created to broadcast and get business leads.
    • While reading a few reviews you can feel that the answer might have followed a template.
    • Another point to be noted is that this profile holder does not have a profile picture updated. This actually means the id is not mapped to a real account. The account might have been created exclusively for posting fake review.
  • Check out their choice words when they talk to you. If they use words that give priority to course fee, next batch starting date, offer for immediate joining. These words will highlight that the person or institute may get your course fee and may not pay attention.
  • Never Ever pay your course fee upfront. Take minimum 2 demo session from the prescribed trainer. Once you are satisfied, pay the half fee and pay the remaining fee anytime.
  • Make sure that they are giving you the adequate information to you for making a better decision. The institute must give you information and knowledge. They must not force you to start the course with them.
I hope the information shared here has really helped you. If you still any support or counseling for selecting your digital marketing training institute, you can reach my personal number 7010638398 and WhatsApp me. I will be glad to assist you.
