It’s the Year of the Goat!

It’s the Year of the Goat – so what does that mean for you!

It’s around this time of year that we all like to take a peek at what the year ahead has in store for us personally; what’s our 2015 forecast look like. Some choose Zodiac Astrology, Numerology, ancient Chinese wisdom or just elect to create their own forecast by building a path to their goals. Whatever your choice is, we all like to know what does the future hold for us.

This is about us preparing ourselves for what the year might bring; this applies personally and professional. Imagine if you had a crystal ball and you could forecast the future for your business! The tools you could build and the resources that you could have in place; it would simply be fantastic.

Of course in business it is important to forecast and plan for the year ahead, some of you would have done this last year and others are still in the planning phase. So as a Rabbit about to launch myself into “the Year of the Goat”, in my world 2015 will be “the Year of Video”. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a Goat or a Rabbit or if you’re Sagittarius or Capricorn; the future is what you make of it in business and my forecast is that it will be all about video.

Over the past few years we have seen the rise and continued rise of the use of video by many business professionals. My Doodler forecast is, that when it comes to video and animation you can expect Video, Video, Video it is the key for 2015.
Whether you are creating your new webpage, a video library or education centre, creating marketing, emailing, newsletter or a presentation; if you don't do it by video you are missing out on using the most engaging medium available to get your message across.

The good news is that it is not too late to start your video journey but as with most things, the sooner you start, the better. Whether you are recording yourself or usinganimation to convey your message in an entertaining and vibrant style, with some simple planning you can achieve this within months or even weeks.

So tell me, in the Year of the Goat will you be left behind and not engage by using video to keep your message out there. The forecast is that you will feel like a goat if you don’t start your video journey from here.

I would love to hear from you on how video has made a difference to your business. Perhaps you would like a tour through the Doodler Video Library to see how you can get started.

2015 truly will be the Year of Video!
