Are You a Trendsetter?
By Audrey Y | September 20, 2016
Forecasting the weather isn’t difficult. Go online, watch the local news, or use instruments such as a barometer and a weather vane to play amateur weatherman. It’s not a perfect science, but you’ll obtain fairly accurate information most of the time.
Forecasting changes in public opinion and market trends that affect your business or your campaign is a much greater challenge. There are few available tools at one’s disposal to predict where trends will take us in six months, let alone six years. Whether it’s the surprising take-off of the social media-driven ice bucket challenge of summer 2014, the latest fashion trends, opinions regarding the Keystone Pipeline, or the trajectory of a presidential campaign, predictions are frequently no more reliable than using the magic 8-ball.
