#whysocial spotlight: Brittany Edwards


Brittany Edwards has been with Spredfast from the early days (employee no. 27!), building social brand relationships and managing PR endeavors.

As our Marketing Manager, Brittany's astute social forecasting has been highlighted many times on the blog.

She's a steadfast part of the marketing team, avid soccer player, and doting mom to her little one, Jackson. We couldn't be more excited to learn about what keeps Brittany social!  


What attracted you to Spredfast and what do you enjoy most about your position?

I love startup culture and social's ability to truly change the way we communicate with each other.  When I joined Spredfast nearly three years ago, we were still a small startup and I was excited about the opportunity to help shape the future marketing direction of the organization, as well as be in the unique position as a marketer to get to market to my peers.

My favorite part of my job is engaging with customers to uncover the innovative ways they're using social and helping shine a light on that success.    


If I had to define my #whysocial, it would be: _________________________.

Social empowers us, both as consumers and brands, to express ourselves and consume content - whether that's a friend's Facebook update or breaking news from a media outlet - in a more engaging and real-time way that was never possible before. 


What personal projects inspire you? What are your passions outside the office?

I have a toddler-aged son that keeps me busy!  I'm also an avid college sports fan (go, Heels, go!) and love to cook.  


My favorite spot in Austin is: ___________________. 

Anywhere with my family.      


Thanks for all you do for our brand and clients, Brittany! Your work helps us shine brighter.
