Create animated videos with GoAnimate

Posted on Updated on

As a budding small business owner and technophile, I’m constantly in search of digital tools that allows me to build and grow a successful virtual business.  I stumbled upon GoAnimate a few months ago and I highly recommend it for any aspiring content creator looking to promote an array of entertaining, animated videos for your business or school project.

I decided to test it out by producing “Engage” to promote my budding new strategic communications firm, Bahafis Creative.  Designed using a call-in show format, “Engage” is hosted by Babs (my virtual self) and will offer brief tutorials about the plethora of tools content strategist, creators and curators can use to produce engaging online experiences.  Let me know what you think and check out GoAnimate!

After reading the comments regarding Tim Cook’s apology letter, I thought to myself,

what would Steve’s critique of Tim’s letter look like if he were still alive?

    1. Shocking as it may sound, Iranian customers at the Apple Stores in the North Point Mall and Perimeter Mall in Georgia were told they could not purchase products after an employee heard them speaking Farsi. Huh (scratching head)?
      You have to see it to believe it.
    2. The ambiguity of this seemingly discriminatory policy prompted a press release from the National Iranian American Council. “Unfortunately, this is part of an escalating pattern in which increasingly broad sanctions on Iran are hitting the wrong people,” says Policy Director Jamal Abdi. 
    3. What are Twitter and Facebook users saying?

      Really happy there are many open-minded Americans who are blaming Apple for its discrimination against Iranians. Thanks for spreading it.

      I have a feeling Apple’s facing some serious lawsuit for failure of the employee to sell an iPad to Iranian fella speaking in Farsi #AAPL

      Wow, this is a bit much and I suspect will get the company/sales rep in more than a little hot water.
