Digital Activism Panel: How your Mobile Phone is Changing the Face of Grassroots
Get out of the blog post mindset! Activism is twitter! It’s video! It isn’t just blogging!
Nuts and bolts:
- Anyone with an iPad, iPhone whatever, rigorously test the apps. Do it quarterly. The apps change and get updated… Glitches and interfaces should be watched for on a regular basis.
- Focus on one or two things
- Don’t expect to get paid
- If you are just starting out, no one will be watching or reading what you do! It takes time to build a following
- Use your phone and get busy
- You will piss people off, toughen up and expect it.
- Get serious about your equipment and make sure that it’s ready.
- Build your social media presence.
- Relentlessly self promote!!
- The three things matter most: Content, Content, Content
Another righteously awesome panel.
