“If you exist in the real world and do good, important work, THAT’s how you get followers,” said Guante in keynote of Fall Media Forum. For the story – check out Storify below, which we added to and built throughout the day.
Some memorable quotes from the day:
Guante: “Do good work, write good articles, get out in the community and build relationships with people – everything else is secondary. Everything else will follow that.”
Karyssa Jackson: “If you’re not a member of the community that you’re trying to reach – why do you want to reach them? And are they going to benefit from it?”
Alfred Walking Bull: “It sounds cheesy, but I go back to the traditions of storytelling.”
Deanna Cummings: “Work is about leaving the people we work with better off – not about propping up the nonprofit.”
