100 Day Blogging Course by Deepak Kanakaraju – Review

Learn Blogging in 100 Days
Standard

I have been a blogger for over 6 years now and that is something that I will do forever. The major challenge for any blogger is to come up with what to write about every time you log in to your blog. Age old advice is to zero in on a niche and start building content.

We have a lot of tools that are aimed to help startups, bloggers, and entrepreneurs. There are best practices when it comes to everything.

What if you are guided by a seasoned blogger who has written over 200 quality articles in the domain of Digital Marketing? Last month, I found about this course in a Facebook group dedicated to Digital Marketers here.

Deepak Kanakaraju is a well known digital marketing expert who has headed Digital Marketing in major Startups and he has trained thousands of professionals in this domain. He has come up with this unique and intensive course where he builds a blog from scratch and documents the same in video lessons.

100 Day Blogging Course - Review

Snapshot of the 100-day blogging course LMS

However, I prefer to use the LMS and I implement what I learn in the video at the same time on my blog in a different tab. This way, you can experiment and refer the video for any queries.

Pros

  • Simple and easy to understand video lessons documenting every little task that is done to make the blog better.
  • Bonus lessons on request for complex tasks which needs more clarity
  • An amazing Facebook group with wonderful 2500+ bloggers who jump in to help you whenever you face any issue whatsoever.
  • Excellent Feedback Mechanism through active polls on Facebook Group.
  • ‘Ask Me Anything’ from Experts like Pardeep Goyal on FB Group which threw a lot of light on Content Marketing. I am sure there is more to come.
  • Very light on the wallet in terms of Pricing and the value given is 100x more ( Cost of a movie plus lunch with your family)
  • Self-paced learning through a Learning Management System and it serves as a ready reckoner for any doubts.
  • Pocket-friendly hosting packs by partners of Deepak Kanakaraju. VisualCloudX which is run by Nitin Agarwal is my favorite pick and hosting plans start as low as 99 INR per month.
  • Great learnings from fellow bloggers from unique niches.
  • You can consider this as a course or as a challenge – both ways it’s a win.
  • Planned city based meetups with students of the program like the one below in Bangalore.

Cons

  • 100 days have passed a while back and yet we have finished around 75 lessons only. There were a few bonus videos though apart from the daily lessons.
  • The delay in the lessons created unrest now and then amongst the members but Deepak provided value through study materials and free lessons in various other domains in digital marketing.

I am extremely thankful for this amazing course and I am so looking forward to what we accomplish as a group.

Happy Blogging 🙂
