You’re a student…
or a Graduate wanting to learn Digital Marketing, dreaming of freelancing or working from home in your T-shirts, and having the time to do things you love every day.
But all that seems a million miles away.
At the moment, you’re just getting started on what seems to be a very long journey to a successful career.
I’m Vignesh Manickam…
I know exactly what you’re going through.
Because I have been there and this blog is a result of me saying “Fudge it, let me stop whining and start doing”.
However, I didn’t know where to start or even how to start.
To be honest, It took me an awful lot of time before I figured out my career.
Like most of the students, I wasn’t sure which career path to choose. Neither did I have any exceptional skills.
It was only after a year of switching different jobs, I found what I am truly good at and passionate about.
As you may have guessed, it’s Digital Marketing.
Consequently, I started looking for ways to learn Digital Marketing online.
Meanwhile, I simultaneously started applying for entry-level Marketing and Business jobs.
Here’s what I realized:
Reading blogs about Marketing or completing online Digital Marketing courses without implementing what you have learned is absolutely useless in terms of getting a job.
Ergo, I got rejected by every single company I have applied to.
I had zero practical hands-on experience related to Digital Marketing or Business.
The classic paradox situation:
I couldn’t find a job because I had no experience; I couldn’t gain experience because I didn’t have a job.
But luckily, I found out there’s a way to earn experience in Digital Marketing without a day to day job.
And what is that?
That is to say, you can learn a lot, and I mean A LOT about Digital Marketing by running a blog.
So, here I am, doing exactly that.
I suppose you might be having second thoughts about me by now:
Is Vignesh’s content legit?
Does he really know what he’s talking about?
Hey, hey, I realize I’m not a digital marketing ninja.
But, My content is all about what I personally have learned and found out to be working.
And Of course, I research a ton before writing a piece of content. So, you need not worry. I have a pretty good idea about what I’m putting into my blog.
Actual Hustle’s Objective:

In addition to that, I’ll also throw some light on a few ways to start Freelancing online.
