What You Need to Know About Dating in 2022

YourUpdateTV

Bumble, the women-first dating and social networking app, has revealed 2022’s dating trends ahead of Dating Sunday, also known as the first Sunday of the new year and one of the busiest days for the online dating industry. Recently, Shan Boodram, Sex and Relationship Expert at Bumble, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss dating trends and what people can expect in the New Year. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/7FH9VJpcN-o According to Bumble’s latest study, the New Year will bring about: Explori-dating: The pandemic has made almost half of us (48%) question what our ‘type’ is. Looking ahead to 2022, more than 1 in 3 people on Bumble would describe their approach to dating as exploratory (43%) and more than one-third (34%) of respondents in the U.S. say they are more open to exploring a relationship with someone who lives in another city. Consciously Single: 2022 is all about finding that someone, not just anyone. The pandemic has made half of us (53%) realize that it’s OK to be alone for a while. Dry Dating: Throughout the pandemic, many have changed their relationship to alcohol and adopted new drinking habits. In fact, 1 in 3 (34%) people globally are now more likely to consider going on a ‘dry date’ than they were before the pandemic. “Dating Sunday” is known as the first Sunday of the new year and one of the busiest days for the online dating industry. Last year, Bumble saw that the highest volume of messages in the US were exchanged between early January and before Valentine’s Day. This time period has traditionally been a busy season for online dating as people re-merge from the holidays and get ready to find a new partner just in time for Valentine’s Day. Here are some tips on updating your profile: Make your first photo stand out. Showing off your smile, your eyes (without sunglasses), and your whole face (without a Snapchat filter) makes a positive first impression. Make sure it's only you in this first photo. It's great to include photos with your friends too, but you want your potential matches to know just who it is they'll be swiping on when they land on your profile. Add interests and badges to highlight your likes, hobbies and passions. Don’t be too serious. Dating should be fun and exciting, so let your personality show! Less is not more. Don’t leave your profile blank! This is your opportunity to show off your amazing sense of humor and let your next potential match get to know a little bit about you. Everyone loves a funny, memorable profile. Remember to keep it positive! Asking a question in your profile that a potential match can answer as their first message to you is always a good idea. Ask a trusted BFF for advice: Sometimes we can be our own worst critics, and our friends can help us see things we might miss. Ask them how they might describe you, or the things about you that stand out the most. Allow your closest confidantes to take a look at your camera roll or Instagram and help select some great photos, too. For more information, visit Bumble.com or download the app in the App Store and Google Play. About Shan Boodram: Shan Boodram is a certified sex educator, dating coach and intimacy expert. Boodram is host of the top podcast, "Lovers and Friends," the best-selling author of “The Game of Desire,” resident expert on Netflix's “Too Hot to Handle,” and currently stars in Peacock’s new show “Ex-Rated with Andy Cohen". She is an ambassador for AIDS Healthcare Foundation and WomensHealth.gov, and a member of the American Sexual Health Association. About Bumble app: Bumble, the women-first dating and social networking app, was founded by CEO Whitney Wolfe Herd in 2014. Bumble connects people across dating (Bumble Date), friendship (Bumble BFF) and professional networking (Bumble Bizz). No matter the type of relationship, women make the first move on Bumble. Bumble is built on the importance of equitable relationships and how crucial they are to a healthy, happy life. They've built their platform around kindness, respect, and equality – and their community plays an important part in that. Bumble holds its users accountable for their actions and has zero tolerance for hate, aggression, or bullying. Bumble is free and available worldwide in the App Store and Google Play.

Holiday Gifting & Preparation

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/JR9Mz8XHr4g The countdown is on as holiday shoppers continue to spend in record numbers. According to the latest stats, online sales have reached close to 110-billion dollars since November 1 st. That’s a lot of searching, finding, and buying. Beauty & Lifestyle Expert, Anna De Souza has come up with a few of her favorite finds for the favorite people in your life. FITNESS: The National Retail Federation finds the average consumer will spend close to $1,000 on gifts and other purchases. De Souza says there’s no need to stress. As a mom of twin toddlers, she’s done all the heavy lifting, stating, “It’s hard to get a workout in other than muscling them up three flights of stairs.” The Lifestyle expert has found one gift that she deems “smart and compact.” The Tempo Move helps give the experience and results of working with a personal trainer by offering real-time feedback, weight recommendations, and a training plan, and this full gym takes up only a tiny footprint as a sleek cabinet. De Souza continues, “As you work out, Tempo Move tracks your reps, form, weight – even the speed of your reps – and the artificial intelligence customizes a workout smarter than any human ever could.” Tempo Move comes with 50 pounds of smart weights and connects through your phone and TV for a fully immersive workout experience that favors effort over time. For more information, visit https://www.tempo.fit/shop/move. Facebook: @GetTempo Instagram: @tempo Twitter: @TrainWithTempo COOKING: Reports show that a few retailers have gotten a lift from cooking trends. De Souza points out that so much time is spent with family and friends in the kitchen. She asks, “Why not make some new memories while making some delicious meals?” The Lifestyle expert recommends picking up an air fryer, because now consumers are finally able to cook two dishes that can be synchronized to serve at the exact same time. The CRUXGG TriZone 9 Quart Air Fryer was voted Best Air Fryer of 2021 by Esquire. It’s engineered with patent-pending technology that features one extra-large cooking area that can be divided into two – so chicken fingers for the kids and salmon for you, or an entrée and a side – served hot and crispy together so you don’t need to microwave the straggler dish! CRUXGG just launched 8 products exclusively at Target which will be 30% off through the holidays. De Souza also highlights the brand’s Rotating Ceramic Nonstick Waffle Maker, that makes 5 one-inch Belgian waffles in under 10 minutes. She says it’s perfect for holiday mornings. “CRUXGG is also a purchase you can feel good about,” De souza adds, because 5% of proceeds go to a collective of nonprofits working to end food insecurity. For more information, go to https://www.target.com/p/cruxgg-6-in-1-9qt-air-fryer-with-trizone-technology/-/A-85017063?preselect=82541621#lnk=sametab. Social Media Channels: @crux.kitchen @ghettogastro Hashtags: #createwithcrux #targetstyle BEAUTY: As a beauty expert, De Souza has a few ideas for consumers that want to look and feel their best this holiday season and into the new year. She starts off with a holiday gift set from OLEHENRIKSEN. “You’ve probably heard of banana powder as a celebrity makeup artist secret to brighten that dark undereye area,” De Souza says, “The Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum with 15% Vitamin C is clinically proven to give you brighter, bouncier skin in 7 days without makeup. With other brands, shoppers usually get 3% vitamin C in topicals if you’re lucky. You’re also getting C-Rush Brightening Gel Crème, which gives you a full 24-hours of moisture and a color-correcting Banana Bright Eye Crème.” As a beauty expert, De Souza has been covering beauty for many years. She says if there is one product to horde, it’s Vitamin C. For more information, go to https://www.olehenriksen.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/olehenriksen/ Instagram: @olehenriksen Another gift idea De Souza recommends became this year’s viral foundation launch and sold out multiple times when TikTokers showed off the texture and coverage after just one swipe on the cheek. De Souza says, “The KVD Beauty’s Good Apple Skin-Perfecting Foundation Balm is unlike any texture I’ve felt before, it glides on like a buttery balm, but it’s surprising when you see it apply as full coverage with a velvety finish that doesn’t crease!” It’s formulated with hydrating apple extract and available in 40 inclusive shades. Holiday shoppers can use code ANNA20 at KVDVeganBeauty.com for 20% off or pick it up at Ulta or Sephora. For more information, visit http://kvdveganbeauty.com/.

The Customer Experience Market in 2022 Will Continue to Be Heavily Influenced by Labor Issues, Supply Chain Disruptions, and Health and Safety Concerns, According to Dash Research

Dash Network

As 2021 draws to a close, it is clear that the events and responses to the COVID-19 pandemic continue to significantly impact the customer experience (CX) market, according to a new webinar and companion white paper produced by Dash Research. While some of the most drastic aspects of CX changes due to the pandemic were temporary measures, other practices demonstrated significant value to both the customer and provider and are likely to stay. “The most impactful trends that emerged in 2021 were both interrelated and interdependent, reflecting the interconnected worlds of digital engagement, physical fulfillment, and health and safety issues,” says principal analyst Keith Kirkpatrick. “While many of these trends began during 2020, they were often accelerated by various economic and public health conditions that arose in 2021, including labor shortages, supply chain issues, and an increased focus on digital/real-world customer journeys.” These market factors have led to an increased use of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation, with business-to-consumer (B2C) organizations in particular deploying AI-enabled chatbots and tools to handle routine tasks, freeing up workers to address more complex issues. Automated marketing and messaging took center stage as businesses leveraged technology to maximize sales, marketing, and services efficiency, and the use of technology extended to CX functions, such as customer contact centers. Similarly, business-to-business (B2B) organizations increased use of collaboration platforms and video-conferencing tools to ensure seamless business continuity, conducting sales, marketing, and other business engagements via online channels, in lieu of in-person meetings. And as the most severe impacts of the pandemic lessened in certain parts of the world, some companies initiated the use of hybrid workplaces, which saw the return of some workers to their places of business on a part-time basis, while allowing others to continue to work remotely. Dash Research’s analysis further indicates that, with the continued shift to omnichannel communications and customer-centricity, customers are seeking fully integrated CX platforms. As a result, vendors are shoring up their product portfolio through two primary methods: (1) mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity, where new functionality or features are added through the acquisition of another company that already has these capabilities; and (2) via the funding market, which provides them with the capital required to build out new functionality. Dash Research’s webinar and white paper showcase fundraising and M&A activity by Kore.ai, Netomi, Terminus, Qualtrics, Zendesk, and Concentrix. Looking ahead to 2022, as some industries strive for a return to normal (e.g., travel & hospitality, retail, and healthcare), Dash Research expects to see greater investment in CX platforms and programs to support customers throughout the entire journey. Personalization will continue to be used as a differentiator, not only for B2C business, but also for B2B companies that are trying to deliver a right-sized offering for each customer. Greater visibility into supply chains may be a differentiator for some companies, particularly if bottlenecks remain. Further, improvements to CX through mobile, social, and other non-traditional channels will be front and center, as omnichannel approaches mature. Large customer relationship management (CRM) and customer data platform (CDP) vendors will continue to add new features and functions that make it easier for companies of all types to add AI and automation across all functional areas. And despite the push to incorporate technology, businesses will focus on balancing human agents and automation to build a better rapport with customers. Dash Research’s webinar, “The State of the CX Market in 2021”, along with its companion white paper of the same title, focus on the CX trends that emerged in 2021, the impact those trends had on CX implementation, and the processes and strategies that are expected to continue well into 2022. The webinar and white paper also focus on the M&A and fundraising activity that occurred in 2021, as well as providing an assessment of relative customer demand and maturity of 10 CX techniques. The white paper is available as a free download on Dash Research’s website and the webinar replay is also available. Dash Research, the market intelligence arm of Dash Network, provides in-depth research and insights on the worldwide CX market including a comprehensive assessment of technology solutions, business issues, market drivers, and end-user dynamics across industry sectors. Dash Research’s global market coverage combines qualitative and quantitative research methodologies to provide a complete view of emerging business opportunities surrounding contact center technologies, customer data & analytics, customer data platforms, customer insights & feedback, customer relationship management, personalization & optimization, and employee experience.

Revolutionizing the Way We Pay for Healthcare: Can Tech Give You Freedom from Health Insurance?

YourUpdateTV

Every year, a quarter million Americans declare bankruptcy due to medical bills despite having health insurance. Recently, Andy Schoonover, Founder and CEO of CrowdHealth, teamed with YourUpdateTV on a satellite media to discuss how leveraging technology can help you get your healthcare freedom back without breaking the bank. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/7HLiYcpGqFU For 30 years, the middle class has experienced no real income growth due to the increasing costs of health insurance. Research shows inadequate health insurance accounts for nearly 67 percent of all bankruptcies. This statistic is staggering and illustrates a difficult reality for the many American families navigating today’s insurance market. Technology is being used to build a new, community-powered solution for all. CrowdHealth is an app and technology platform that allows you to make a monthly contribution to the Community and those funds are used to fund the community’s health care bills. Crowdfunding models of paying for health care maximize the probability that all members’ eligible bills will be paid in full each month. These models come without the burdens of skyrocketing premiums and deductibles. Unlike traditional models, members aren’t chained to yearly contracts and have more flexibility and autonomy with crowdfunded models. CrowdHealth provides app-based tools such as: The latest innovation in fintech, allowing their members to aggregate crowdsourced funds to pay doctors quickly and directly. A nationwide doctor quality and cost database that empowers their members to make informed decisions about their care without the limitation of restrictive networks. Highly engaged, personalized Care Advocacy to help their members navigate their health journeys. Negotiation and legal services that fight for patients when dealing with outrageous bills. Access to deeply discounted prescription drugs. By eliminating insurance plan middlemen, reimagining the healthcare payment system and empowering doctors to direct care choices, CrowdHealth will help their members significantly reduce their out-of-pocket expenses when compared to healthcare.gov plans.

About Andy Schoonover Andy Schoonover is founder and CEO of CrowdHealth, a community-powered alternative to health insurance that provides a revolutionary way of paying for healthcare bills through crowdfunding.

Hi-Tech Holiday Gift Guide

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/8TiX7QwCt14 With the holiday hustle and bustle in full swing, many U.S. consumers are still struggling to find the perfect tech gifts for our loved ones. A new study from the Consumer Technology Association found that this season’s tech sales will hit $142.5 billion. Tech Expert, Dave King has a few ideas to help shoppers score this year’s hottest gadgets and gear. TECH & SELF-CARE: Tech has helped transform aspects of our daily lives, including fitness, productivity, and mindfulness. One area King is excited to talk about is oral care. The Oral-B iO Series 8 combines powerful, but gentle micro-vibrations with a unique dentist-inspired round brush head design for a professional clean feeling every day. The Smart Pressure Sensor helps to keep people from brushing too hard to protect their gums and enamel. AI Recognition, plus an interactive display, helps guide brushers to their best clean for all areas of the mouth. A 2-minute quadrant timer comes built-in that pulsates every 30 seconds, ensuring a complete clean. King adds, “The frictionless, smooth magnetic drive system transfers energy to the bristle tips for spectacular clean teeth.” The Oral-B iO Series 8 is available at oralb.com and all major retailers. For more information, visit https://oralb.com/en-us/products/electric-toothbrushes/oral-b-io-series-8-electric-toothbrush-black-onyx/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=&utm_term=&gclid=Cj0KCQjwtrSLBhCLARIsACh6RmiEbq-V4oACt4hbQA_DLBSabI5mKHcPOutf6QUoarstrWysIoViKx4aAroYEA. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oralb Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/oralb/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/OralB UP YOUR PROFESSIONAL GAME WITH TECH GEAR: All signs are pointing to remote work persisting and trending permanent for many American businesses. King says we’ve learned so much about managing hybrid and remote work over the past year-and-a-half. “At this point, it’s really time to up our professional games to look and sound our very best,” highlights King. The tech expert recommends the Poly Studio P5 kit with Sync 20, a high-performance webcam optimized for video conferencing with 1080p resolution that works with any cloud-based video platform such as Zoom and Teams – paired with the Poly Sync 20 smart speakerphone to deliver a premium audio experience. This pro-grade kit is the perfect choice for the remote or hybrid worker in your life. These tech items are available through Poly.com, Amazon, Best Buy, and other major retailers. For more information, visit https://www.poly.com/us/en/shop/holiday-promotions. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PolyCompany/ Twitter: @PolyCompany Instagram: @PolyCompany Hashtags: #PolySync #PolyStudio UPGRADE - FOCUS ON PRODUCTIVITY & EFFICIENCY: King says there are other ways tech can be used to increase work from home productivity and efficiency. One of his top recommendations is to upgrade everyday gadgets to something special. One of the tech expert’s favorite finds is the Happy Hacking Keyboard (HHKB) from Fujitsu Computer Products of America. He says it has an incredible following of loyal programmers, developers, and coders all over the world. “I like it’s compact, highly-customizable design and connectivity options,” adds King. The HHKB comes in three different models, two different colors — ivory and charcoal, and with either stamped or blank keys. One keyboard King highlights is the Professional HYBRID Type-S. “This keyboard is ideal for people working from home, programmers, and all computer pros. Its exclusive use of Topre silent switches provides supreme tactility, extra comfort and keystroke precision eliminating keyboard clacking,” King continues, “It’s also compact — 60% of the size of standard keyboards — and features Bluetooth compatibility so users can connect to smartphones, tablets and more.” The Professional HYBRID Type-S is available on Amazon.com or at HHKeyboard.us. For more information, visit https://hhkeyboard.us/. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hhkbUS/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hhkb_realforce_us/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/HHKB_RF_US RESEARCH & REVIEW: A record 191 million U.S. adults plan to purchase tech items this holiday season. King says consumers can make sure they’re getting the right gift at the best price. Another one of his recommendations is to stay calm and focused. Additionally, it’s important to rely on great reviews to manage shopping expectations. King turns to the community at Slickdeals. “No one is selling anything. The service is about shoppers helping shoppers,” says the tech expert. “It’s the only shopping platform powered by millions of real people who are out there discovering, sharing, and vetting the best deals.” The site, apps, browser extension, and new loyalty program have millions of users who connect and discover the very best deals from all the top retailers, like Walmart and Amazon. King says this is important, “So you can know if you're actually getting the best product at the best price,” adding, “It’s like having 12 million friends help you understand where the best deals on the best products are happening. If you’re shopping for something specific, set a deal alert, so you’re notified when something matching your criteria gets posted.” To find reviews, go to https://slickdeals.net/.

While most traditional firms focus on a myriad of different content strategies, AuthorityTech.io has focused relentlessly on two things: understanding specifically the technology landscape and securing incredible earned media opportunities for its clients. Partnering with OptimusQ’s smart technology, AuthorityTech.io plans on extending the value of credible earned media placements, by boosting their visibility and garnering millions of impressions from potential customers and investors. As a leader in the Tech PR and now marketing space, AuthorityTech.io aims to continually seek innovative methods to disrupt how these services are designed and implemented. In a fast-paced industry like technology, there is an urgent need for PR and marketing firms to provide cutting edge services that leverage technology. Jaxon Parrott, the Founder at AuthorityTech.io, stated his thoughts on the disruptive changes they plan to implement: “Going into 2022, technology will continue to change how we see, interact and consume information. Most PR firms are stuck in a time where technology was in its infancy stage, not innovating alongside these changes. We aim to not only innovate alongside but lead the disruption of the Tech PR and marketing space. We believe this new Hybrid PR service will change the game for a long time.” AuthorityTech.io has been known as a “market disruptor” for quite some time, but with their new pivot into their Hybrid PR model, they plan on taking this reputation to another level. Technology companies now have an entirely new and automated way to not only solidify their brands, but also to consistently be seen in front of their target audience. The result? More customers, more investment dollars, and even a higher company valuation.
