So why do we make predictions when we cannot even predict the weather correctly, and we try to do that using very sophisticated equipment? That being said, as a public relations expert, I will challenge technology using only my brain and tell you what I see happening for 2015.
And in 2015 . . . .
Business and the Economy
Yes, things are looking brighter, but where is the growth coming from next year to continue this bright outlook? I predict far more “franchise” businesses will be started because it is an easy way to enter the business sector without the old fear beset trial and error methods.
The second area I see growing is on-line businesses. This is the least costly way for entrepreneurs to try their hand at starting a business. I see a 30 to 40% increase in new online businesses.
People will be spending about the same amount of money next year, but the fact some things are less costly (such as fuel for cars and basic food stuff) people will spend the same amount of money, just in more places.
This industry has been growing steadily for the past four years and will continue. What I see now are new areas of technology on how we will continue to interact using our smart phones and other devices like smart glasses and other wearable items. The “cloud” is opening up new areas on how we store our data and will become a way we can store our conversations so we do not exceed email and texting limits on our devices.
Trust me. At least 50% of those of my predictions this year will be 50% right. Are there any other pubic relations agencies or other professionals in the public relations industry willing to take this challenge and make their predictions?
