FLAGSHIP PROGRAMME ON SEO AND DIGITAL MARKETING

02/03/2017
Kerala IT has set up a flagship programme on Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Digital Marketing, the first-of-its-kind initiative in South India.

Launched under the guidance of State Resource Centre, the programme will be run by Three Seas Infologics.

His Excellency Justice (Retd.) P Sathasivam, Hon’ble Governor of Kerala, officially inaugurated the event at a function held at Technopark recently in the presence of Dr. Usha Titus IAS, Secretary, Department of General Education; Mr. Hrishikesh Nair, CEO, Technopark; Dr. N B Suresh Kumar, Director, State Resource Centre and Mr. Shahir Esmail, CEO, Three Seas Infologics. The event also witnessed Dr. Usha Titus handing over the admin security console to the Governor.

A unique initiative, the console can be used for making the public aware of the Governor’s next event and also to educate the people about the protocols that should be followed and the security concerns they need to fulfil. The event organisers may merely upload their brochure or flyer to the required field and the authorised personnel from the Governor’s office may approve this if all criteria have been met.

According to Mr. Shahir Esmail, this is the first time that a Government-approved Diploma course has been launched in the country with comprehensive and self-learning study material. "The course has been designed after thorough market analysis and with conviction of its possibilities from years of experience in the Digital Marketing field," he said.
