How Whitney Wolfe Emerged From Threats Issued Against Her By Pro-gun Activists

Whitney Wolfe is one of the pioneers of the famous Tinder App. She joined Tinder at the age of 22 and was made the vice president of the marketing department. Her duties included popularizing the app among college campuses with the aim of eventually creating an active user base. Besides, she influenced the name and the logo of the company while still in office before she quit and moved to Austin, Texas.

According to Whitney Wolfe, the environment on dating apps was too aggressive and thus when Andrey Andreev of Badoo contacted him with a deal of starting Bumble, she did not turn it down. The app began operations in 2014, and by the end of 2015, it had made close to 80 million matches and had 15 million active conversations. Under her guidance, Bumble launched a BFF and Bizz feature that would enable women to make female friends online and establish hustle related networks respectively.

Following the CEOs decision to suppress any gun images in the app, the Bumble staff has faced so many threats and cyber attacks. Speaking to the chief content officer at the Hearst Magazines, Joanna Coles, Whitney Wolfe said that she was getting emails from people threatening her saying they knew where her offices were and they would come for her. With these kinds of danger remarks and having her staff harassed, she called out for the help of security team that watched over the offices in Austin for a couple of weeks while she moved around with a bodyguard.

The Southern Methodist University graduate said that despite the backlash from bumble users, it was the right thing to do because guns were against the company’s values. Her decision was fueled by the shootings at a high school in Parkland and the fact that most people who lost their lives to household violence were because of guns.

Besides being the Bumble CEO Whitney Wolfe got married to Michael Herd in a beautiful ceremony in Italy last year 2017. A year later, the Utah native was listed among the top 30 under 30 most influential personalities in Tech. She is gracefully scaling the heights of success.

Kamil Idris Keeping Close Eye On American Trade Relationship With China

It is the opinion of Kamil Idris that the tariffs announced on Chinese products being imported into the United States by President Donald Trump will have a great effect on the Chinese government. Trump explains that the tariffs are necessary to combat what he feels is unfair trade practices by the Chinese government and the unethical acquisition of American technology. The numbers reported by the United States Trade Representatives in 2017 seem to back the president’s claim by stating that it is possible untold billions have already been lost due to the theft of American intellectual property by the Chinese.

Kamil Idris explains that $50 billion worth of tariffs imposed by Donald Trump is to directly punish the Chinese for this intellectual property theft. The violations the Chinese are accused of include stealing trade secrets from American companies, counterfeiting popular brands of American companies, and pressuring American business entities to share technology in order to access Chinese trade markets.

The international business community has long complained about these practices on the part of business owners and the government of China. Many countries have even taken the action of discontinuing business with China.

Trump had promised in the past to impose a 25 percent tariff on steel products entering the country and 10 percent on aluminum. Kamil Idris notes that President Trump seemed to be extending an olive branch to our closest neighbors, Canada and Mexico, by not extending these tariffs to products originating in those countries.

The move by Trump has concerned trade allies of the United States throughout the world who feel the tariffs are unfair. Likewise, many lawmakers in his own party have spoken against the sanctions and warn that both the Chinese government and the European Union could retaliate in ways that could cause problems for the U.S. economy.

Kamil Idris says the situation is both a serious and fluid one that he will continue to monitor carefully.

NGP Van Has Some Tips for the Perfect Campaign Email

The breakthrough success of the Obama campaign, which led all the way to the White House, was built on the lessons of earlier campaigns that harnessed the power of email. Today, maintaining an email list is just another necessary task. However, with potential supporters constantly bombarded with emails competing for their attention, composing the perfect email is no small feat. NGP Van is a premier technology company serving progressive campaigns, and their experts have some tips for making your mail-outs more effective.

According to NGP Van, one of the most important things to keep in mind when writing up your email is focus. Candidates comment on so many issues that it is tempting to carry that dynamic over to your draft. But your email should be focused on a single idea and issue. The next step is to outline how the reader’s support, financial or otherwise, will help to produce positive change, a goal which should be realistic, something potential supporters can easily envision.

Another piece of advice from NGP Van is to test consistently and correctly. Some campaigns cut corners and test for multiple variables, but this costs you more time, money, and votes in the long run. Managers think about email and social media as an afterthought, but recent history shows the error in line of thinking.

Finally, don’t be afraid to write from the heart. As the old addage goes, all politics is local. People are concerned about how policy will affect their lives and their community, so it makes no sense to hide behind abstractions. Stay faithful to your message so that the authenticity of your email rings true in the mind of your reader.

NGP Van was founded in 2001 as Voter Activation Network. Based in Washington, DC, the company has an additional location in Somerville, MA.
