About MeetEdgar

We created Edgar in 2014 so that professionals could manage their social media with more consistency and in less time.

Laura

Full disclosure – the professional I had in mind was mostly me.

Hey, I’m MeetEdgar founder and CEO Laura Roeder!

In 2009, I started LKR Social Media, where I 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 most effective strategies in my bag of tricks was recycling social media updates – but doing that meant saving them all in a big, ridiculous spreadsheet and manually loading them into scheduling tools over and over and over! (Not gonna lie – pretty tedious.)

There weren’t ANY social media tools that would save your updates after posting them, or post them more than one time automatically! So I said, fine, we’ll just make one ourselves – and in 2014, we brought Edgar to life.

Edgar made my own social media marketing infinitely easier, and it didn’t take too long for him to get a reputation, either – before we knew it, he was sending out millions of status updates for tens of thousands of social media accounts!

So even though we’ve grown from a scrappy little team of seven to a larger-but-scrappy-at-heart team of, well, a lot more, we stick to the same values that have guided us since the very beginning – and I never forget that this whole thing started because I was sick of doing things the slow, old-fashioned way!

Our Company Values

Choose Kindness

Our relationships with our customers and with each other are built on trust, respect, and the occasional cute animal gif. We leave our egos out of the equation, we give people the benefit of the doubt, and we help one another to be our best selves.

Take Ownership

Everyone on our team has the opportunity to make a significant, long-lasting impact – and not just by turning in a memorable karaoke night performance. We grow by being profitable, not by relying on investors, and that means we’re all directly responsible for our own successes.

Value for Value

Edgar’s users and his team are what keep this whole thing working – well, that, and a not-insignificant amount of caffeine. We make sure that the people responsible for our success are treated the way they deserve.
