My name is Gemma Alexander, Founder and Owner of Build a Brand. I have always enjoyed working with people since I started full time work at the age of 16, (not giving my age away here...!) I've always had big aspirations, and have worked with some amazing people. I've always wanted to do that bit more and push myself as far as I can go. 

I spent years working as a manager of a building society, learning how to effectively communicate with all types of different people, and train and coach my staff to engage with their customers and create connections, which in turn built their trust.

I then moved on to become a website administrator, and from there I set myself new goals and wanted to develop my skills in digital marketing, SEO and analysis. 

Digital marketing is what I love doing. I took the big step, quit my employed job and became self-employed, Build A Brand was born and since then I've never looked back!

Fast forward five years; Build A Brand has grown and developed. We deliver a range of services to amazing clients, across a multitude of sectors, and all supported by an incredible, talented team.

If you have any questions, or just want a chat about what it is that Build a Brand can do to help your business, please get in touch!
