Hi, I'm Alex.
I'm a marketer with an unquenchable thirst for learning and a love for great content that build brand stories.
I'm Alex Chowdhury and an all-around marketer with an eclectic experience. Although I work in Demand Generation, I love great stories. I've realized in my 10 years of marketing experience, the best companies are the ones that can deepen relationships through telling compelling stories.
I fell into content marketing as a result of my love for print magazines. I once interned for a small Caribbean fashion magazine, learning the ropes of editing, ad sales and print operations. When I graduated from university, I decided to start my own publication - a health and fitness magazine. Somehow, I managed to make it work and never looked back. For the next two and a half years, I grew it to a readership of 50 000, making a few mistakes along the way, but learned a lot. I leveraged that experience into working for agencies and various startups as a marketer. Through it all, one thing stood out, the sign of a great brand is their story and how passionate their customers and their employees are about it.
It is my strong belief that storytelling rules all marketing. Like a perfectly crafted story, a great brand makes us want to lean in and learn more, and the foundation of creating great stories (and brands) is content. Content is the atomic unit of marketing — the currency of how to get attention (when done well). But simply “creating content” without a thoughtful vision is a lot like writing individual book pages for readers expecting a story.
