So, if there is one guy you should idolize that’s him. And how do you learn from him? Well, you may not find a certification course here but there is just no limit to the amount of knowledge you would receive. He offers great tutorials on his YouTube channel and through his website.
What makes him standout? Well, he is never out-dated. He just knows it when the digital game starts changing. His company also offers free tools like Ubersuggest which can help you in your conquest of ranking that page.
The only downside we could find out was the explanation part. He just doesn’t take a lot of pain in making you understand. But Neil is a good guy to keep you updated with everything digital.

Ankur Aggarwal YouTube Channel
Another guy we just love. And we will be honest. We love him more than Neil Patel. He is just so down to earth. He explains you like a true teacher. His YouTube channel is a source of bundles of information. He makes detailed tutorials and covers every tiny bit of digital marketing just like any good teacher would.
His playlist of free digital marketing course is a must watch! He covers all trending topics like affiliate marketing, creating backlinks etc.
You might want to keep an eye on his career ideas. So, learn digital marketing with Ankur and you get some good career advices for free!
Here’s a link to his channel.
The guy behind this website is Sorav Jain, obviously. Who is he? Well, he is a digital marketing guru. We had tough time adding ‘guru’ to his name. He just looks too young for it. But just don’t fall for his innocent face. He is a popular brand in the corporate world. He organizes workshops all over India and has worked with over 50 brands.
We would have explained you about his free digital marketing course but he does that way better than us on his homepage so might just click away. However, if you are still reading, here’s what his course is all about.
His free course is quite fundamental in nature. You might just start the ABCD of digital marketing with him and go on to reach the intermediate level. His course is that elaborate. And since you would have completely missed the URL in the heading, here’s it again.
We added this YouTube channel as an afterthought. It might just not pop up in your results when you click search but it’s a treasure hidden in the rubble. They make long and explanatory videos, bring absolutely refreshing and new stuff. They make their own theories and present you with facts and figures.
They just know what they are doing and they have numbers to back it. Their approach to digital marketing is very layman. They won’t bombard you with loads of technical junk.
Follow them once you are done with any fundamental course. They will surely help you take the next step in digital marketing. And we are saying this from personal experience.

Choose any course. The idea is to get an idea. After that it’s all about using lot of common sense. You need to think like a user to be a good digital marketer and that’s pretty much all there is in this field, of course apart from the technical part.
