Every day we heard about new tools from founders sharing their stacklists. We like to roundup and highlight our favorites for other entrepreneurs and founders to check out. This week some of our favorites include tools for all parts of marketing! For social media, email, content, and communicating, here's this week's roundup.
“Meet Edgar is a really cool tool to post social media content... With Buffer, you have to create a queue and you have to keep creating new postings, but Meet Edgar saves all your content in a library and if it is large enough, it keeps cycling through it and posting content and nobody notices.”
Meet Edgar is a social media tool that automates all your posts! You can load any posts to your Meet Edgar Library, categorize them, and then Meet Edgar publishes them for you based on a schedule you set up.
