#whysocial spotlight: Chris Johnson


Today, we're introducing a face that may be familiar to some of our clients. Chris Johnson is one of our on-boarding specialists who assists new clients with platform education and getting users into the system.

Outside of the office, Chris can be found catching live music or taking to the trails. He's also an avid vinyl collector and may have some rockin' recommendations for those looking to expand their music portfolio.

Let's take a peek at his #whysocial and the taco joint that soothes his savory tooth.  

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

Many things attracted me to Spredfast but it was primarily the excitement about entering into the world of social media management for companies. The thought of helping well-established and successful brands implement a new aspect to their business was an awesome prospect!

As a member of the on-boarding team, I enjoy being that first impression that our customers have of Spredfast outside of the sales team. I take this responsibility seriously and make sure that I deliver on these high standards. Giving our customers that great experience, I feel, makes them look forward to a long standing relationship with Spredfast.    


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

The world can be a big and scary place that passes at a blinding pace. Before my social media life, I felt like I was in my piece of the world unaware of what others are truly experiencing. This has completely changed now that we are connected so seamlessly through social media. The feeling of being well informed and contributing to that story is awesome. I love that we are now documenting the world today and I love being a part of that. I turn to social media before turning to a traditional news outlet to get my news.    


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


Living a peaceful and fulfilling life. Getting the most out of spending time with my wife, dog and friends. Running to clear my mind and to stay in shape. Playing softball every Tuesday to hang with friends and relive the glory days of baseball in school. Spending an exorbitant amount of money adding vinyl records to our collection (currently at 231!) and tickets to concerts.  


My favorite spot in Austin is: ___________________. 

At any one of the numerous concert venues watching live music, running the Lady Bird Lake trail, any Torchy's restaurant or on my back deck with my wife Laura and dog Finch.
