With the new year now upon us, it’s time for us to look back on the last 12 months, and assess where we left off and where we need to improve. If you’re looking for new year’s resolutions, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s our list of 5 resolutions that will make life easier for you in 2019. 

1. Buy More Storage

Last year, we saw prices rise on almost every device and storage solution, and it’s obvious that consumers are feeling the pinch from higher prices and cloud storage cut-offs. One of the best video editors on the market, Video Blocks, understands this struggle, and has released a new pricing plan that will make it easier for you to own your content. With Video Blocks Plus, you’ll receive 1 TB of storage for free, with additional space available for purchase. This is a fraction of the cost of buying storage separately, and considering how easy it is to consume video content on the go, it’s more than enough space for most users. If you’re serious about your video work, this is the perfect plan.

2. Use a VR/AR Camera

If you’re serious about video and are looking for a way to truly immerse yourself in your work, then virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) cameras are what you need. Not only will these platforms allow you to do more with your video content, but they will help you tell your story to the world. Think of how much easier your life will be if you have a VR/AR camera instead of having to rely on your smartphone or tablet to record video for you. Since these devices are fully self-sufficient, you won’t have to worry about power outlets or data costs once the videos are uploaded to the cloud. This is a perfect hybrid solution for those that want to create videos for both digital and traditional platforms.

3. Get Rid of Your Clutter

Even in a world full of video, not all of it is valuable. It’s essential to have a method for deciding what content should be deleted and which should be kept. There are many apps and websites that can help you keep track of your video content, including Vidyard, which we use here at Video Blocks. Having a method for identifying and disposing of poor-quality or outdated content will make your life a lot simpler. You’ll thank us for this in the long run.

4. Upgrade Your Software & Hardware

The video industry is evolving, and software and hardware are evolving with it. Video software packages are getting more robust, hardware is improving, and together, these elements make for a much smoother editing experience. If you’re still using software from the 1990s, it’s time for an upgrade. Fortunately, there are some fantastic new alternatives available, so it’s no longer necessary to purchase new software every few years in order to keep up with progress.

5. Consolidate Cloud Services

If you’re using a lot of cloud services, it’s essential to have a way to manage your payment details securely. Luckily, there are several reputable companies that provide this service, including Google and Amazon, making it much easier to keep your costs down and your video storage secure.

Now that you’re equipped with the skills to easily create great videos, why don’t you try out Video Blocks and experience the difference for yourself? Create powerful videos that will engage your audience and bring in the revenue you need to support your creative endeavors. With Video Blocks, your life will be full of video.
