How important is social media when it comes to building your brand? As any 2018 business knows - it can be everything for engaging with your audience and bringing new prospects into your sales and marketing funnels! We chat with Laura Roeder-  founder of Edgar, a social media automation tool designed to prevent status updates from going to waste. Laura has given talks at conferences like BlogHer and South by Southwest and has appeared in Forbes, Fast Company, Mashable, CNET, and other major publications.

Here's a little about her own story: In 2009, she started LKR Social Media, where she  created online courses that taught thousands of entrepreneurs and small business owners how to take their social media marketing into their own hands. One of the things she noticed why helping clients was that there weren't ANY social media tools that would save your updates after posting them, or post them more than one time automatically! In 2014 with the help of her husband and team - Edgar was born!

How did she do it? How can you figure out gaps in the market and create a space for yourself? Laura opens up about her #dreamdriving journey, how she stumbled across the world of digital marketing and social media and gives her favorite social media tips for other entrepreneurs building online businesses.
