With over 15 years experience, Lauren Kozak is deeply knowledgeable about building audiences and influencing user behavior using social media and community. Lauren also specializes in data-driven marketing, establishes well-oiled community management teams and is more than a little obsessed with marketing funnels. She has delved deep into the psychologies of various desirable niche markets, including millennials, Gen Z, moms, content creators and superfans.
Lauren was marketing on social media before Twitter or Youtube had even launched. She started Britney Spears' Twitter from scratch, which soon became the third account to ever reach 1 million followers. At Los Angeles Times & Tribune Publishing, Lauren oversaw social media analytics, strategy and audience acquisition for all 8 newspapers.
I've been working with Lauren off and on since 2011 and she's an absolute rockstar. I recently hired her to help me with my company's social media strategy and I'm so glad I did. Under her instruction we immediately saw a lift in engagement and conversions. She is constantly coming up with new ideas to help us iterate upon, evolve and improve our strategies. Lauren is analytical, knows about all facets of digital marketing and is easy to work with. I will definitely continue to use her as a professional resource and I'd be thrilled to be on a team with her again.

Lauren’s social media guide is MIND BLOWING. I had some vague understanding of some of these concepts, but it’s remarkable to see all these technicalities and best practices laid out clearly and thoroughly.
