The Company With A Big Smile This Black Friday

Bruush Oral Care Inc.

Read The Latest Report About Brüush. Brüush Oral Care Inc. (NASDAQ: BRSH) is back - after a strong Thanksgiving weekend, the leading electric toothbrush company announced record revenue, with over $500,000 of revenues for the month of November, representing year-over-year growth of over 50%. The long, post-Thanksgiving weekend stretching from Black Friday to Cyber Monday is a frenetic time for shops and shoppers alike. Spending totaled $188 billion in 2020, and with things back to normal this year, consumer activity is returning to pre-pandemic levels. In response to modern consumer needs, much Black Friday sales activity has moved online - with a record-breaking $9.12 billion spent online this year - and Brüush is riding this digital market wave. The Vancouver-based toothbrush company, boasting a cutting-edge product and strong online presence, saw one of its strongest weekends of sales in company history this Thanksgiving. Brüush sells top-of-the-line electric toothbrushes and is looking to become a leader in an oral care market worth $33.7 billion. The company, which already has a big smile over its partnership with comedian Kevin Hart, is delighted with this significant weekend of sales and record numbers of Brüush subscriptions and individual purchases. Brüushing Ahead This Black Friday Brüush can be proud of a strong weekend with record revenue from sales that provide significant growth for the company. The company believes that it is poised to become a leading provider of oral hygiene products going forward. As well as its strong individual kit sales, the company saw a boom in its subscription service, with 35,000 subscribers versus 28,000 before its IPO in August. The company’s individual toothbrush kits come with an electric brush and 3 replaceable heads, while its highly affordable subscription service provides 3 replacement heads every 6 months for only $21.60. Brüush’s mid-range pricing - with kits starting at only $80 - makes its brushes an attractive option compared with competitors. These include electric brushes from Oral B, owned by Procter and Gamble (NYSE: PG) and Koninklijke Philips ’ (NYSE: PHG) product, Sonicare. Along with its affordable price tag, Brüush offers a premium product that it claims gives the best teeth cleaning in the market. The Brüush brushes at 42,000 strokes per minute - compared with the average electric brush that brushes just 30,000 times - and removes over 20% more plaque than a manual brush. Its batteries last an industry-leading 4 weeks on a single charge, and the brushes have a 2-year warranty, though the company is confident it won’t be needed. The mid-range prices that provide top-quality oral hygiene results - along with savvy digital marketing - make Brüush popular among millennials, with 18-45-year-olds forming the largest segment of the company's customer base. Building on its resounding Thanksgiving successes, Brüush reports it will be launching a range of oral hygiene products in 2023 to complement its toothbrushes, including a line of toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, and more.

Whether you will be exchanging presents with your colleagues or in a close family circle, this lovely ritual will help to ensure everyone feels valued and included. And with our selection of the 15 best Secret Santa generator services, you can find a tool that will help to get things organized. So pick an app of your liking, invite your friends, and get prepared for a truly memorable Christmas! To save you time and effort, we have carefully scanned dozens of gift exchange generator services and apps available in the market today. Here are our top 3 recommendations. Our #1 recommendation is My Santa, a versatile Secret Santa app that has all the features necessary to organize an outstanding Christmas event. What Is Secret Santa and Why Do You Need An App for It? [ How To Do A Secret Santa ] Secret Santa is a simple and enjoyable game that allows saving some money and ensures each person in a group gets the present. So, here is how it works: A group of colleagues, roommates, friends, relatives, or whoever else, agrees to participate in the game. They write their names on a piece of paper and put them into a container. Each person draws a name from the container to find out who they shall prepare a gift for. The participants can set the basic rules such as the date, by which the presents must be ready, and the budget. They might provide wishlists or even agree upon a particular gift type such as digital only, gifts with meaning, or charitable donations. The game begins and everyone tries to find the best possible gift for the assigned person. By the due date, each participant must receive their secret present. Set Up Your Perfect Secret Santa Event with My Santa Sounds pretty straightforward, doesn’t it? But what if the participants want to play remotely? Or what if you need to send a digital present such as a subscription but do not know the email of the assigned person? A Secret Santa organizer service takes care of minor issues like this and ensures they do not spoil the whole fun. These services allow you to invite participants through social media, create a Secret Santa list with emails and phone numbers, add wishlists, and much more. Simply put, Secret Santa name randomizer services — at least, those from our top 15 selection — let you enjoy the best part of the gift exchange ritual without being distracted by organizational matters. 5 Features of the Best Online Secret Santa Generator But how, you may wonder, do we know the services on our list are the top ones?

Feature set The best gift exchange generator is the one that helps you get things organized. With this in mind, we expect it to have a basic set of options such as setting up the due date and the budget as well as some advanced features such as wishlists and personalized gift recommendations. Access My Santa’s Free Advanced Features To Plan An Idea Event Interface What’s the use of advanced app features if you don’t understand how they work? The best Secret Santa app should, thus, have a simple user-friendly interface that feels intuitive and will appeal to different age groups.

For bigger companies, the price will vary between $9-$19, which is not expensive either. Add to this a charming winter-themed interface, user-friendly design, and prompt customer service, and you get a perfect organizer tool to make your Christmas unforgettable.

WagerWire and Wagr Partner to Bring Community and User Experience to the Forefront of Sports Betting

WagerWire

WagerWire, an innovative marketplace for buying and selling active sports bets, and Wagr, an exciting venture-backed sports betting platform initially launched in Tennessee, today announced their partnership. Both companies have a social-centric ethos and will collaborate on building community and providing a differentiated and engaging user experience. WagerWire and Wagr each closed noteworthy investment rounds in 2022. Wagr completed a $12M Series A round with backing from the Kraft Group, owners of the New England Patriots and Revolution, and Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, owners of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils, among others. WagerWire completed its seed round, backed by investors including Miami Marlins co-owner, Roger Ehrenberg, NBA All-Star Richard Jefferson, and SimpleBet & Betr founder Joey Levy’s 305 Ventures, among others. “While we’re building the greatest next-generation online betting experience, we’ve been fostering an active and engaged community focused on developing smarter and more empowered bettors,” said WagerWire CEO Zach Doctor. “Wagr represents an ideal operator to partner with, as we’re able to unify our core value propositions: building the ultimate bettor experience through innovative technology, fostering high levels of social media engagement with the development of hyper-relevant communities, and empowering bettor education.” WagerWire recently released the first installment in a series of findings from a study it completed in August 2022 detailing the behaviors and sentiments of bettors and would-be bettors alike. The data revealed 43 percent of non-bettors “don’t feel like they know enough about sports betting” and 41 percent of non-bettors “don't know enough about how to bet online.” These findings underline the importance of betting education within the engaged communities of both WagerWire and Wagr. “The energy of Tennessee sports fans is electric,” said Wagr’s Co-Founder and COO Eliana Eskinazi. “As a local operator, we’re focused on harnessing that energy via digital and in-person experiences, and ultimately providing our players and our community with a best-in-class experience.
