Alex Khan’s business career started early. While studying for his Business Administration degree at LMU Munich, Alex was already Managing Director and shareholder of social networking company AttractivePeople. After graduating he left AttractivePeople and followed every entrepreneur’s dream. He started his own company, social network Modelôme. Germany’s largest, professional model community mainly focuses on the domestic market and has received more than 100,000 application requests since its launch in 2010.
Thanks to his decade-long deep involvement in the world of social networks, Alex has gained strong insight into the psychology of communities and the way its members behave and interact. He has studied and experienced, first-hand, which incentives and strategies foster communication and activity.
Through this Alex has developed a unique skill set, which he shares during his successful consultations with international companies.
Alex went on to show what is possible when approaching social media the right way. He started his case study on 26 March 2015, the date Periscope officially launched. Alex used his social media experience to build himself, Alex Khan, as a brand. In the first year he gained more than 400,000 followers.
His recently introduced hashtag #WeKhan registered 100 million impressions and touched 13 million people only nine weeks after its launch.
