Saimah Chaudhry founded her online marketing business while studying business administration and entrepreneurship at Cal State Fullerton. The work risk paid off: Since taking her CookiePages Apps technology to market last November, it has gained thousands of users.
CookiePages is a technological marketing firm that helps small- and medium-sized businesses through creative marketing, specifically through the use of social media. Chaudhry oversees in-house programmers, graphic designers and marketing consultants to create website tools and marketing services for business owners. Their aim is to increase online visibility, quantify marketing spending and improve sales while also keeping clients informed about the best online practices. The company recently moved to TechSpace in Aliso Viejo, a “co-location” data center that has also hosted companies such as Pandora, eHarmony, LinkedIn and Microsoft.
One of Chaudhry’s greatest passions is helping others take their ideas to new levels. “Sometimes the only thing that people need other than an idea is for someone else to believe and nourish that idea,” she says.
One of Chaudhry’s goals is to take her nonprofit foundation, Forward21, an organization committed to connecting small business owners and students through marketing and technology internships, to the national level. cookiepages.com
