In Difficult Times, Communication is Key

We are living through times you will speak about with your children and grandchildren.

People are starved for human interaction. Unable to go to church or school, they are searching for new ways to gather, connect, and communicate.

Candidates and organizations who never considered a Telephone Townhall are scrambling to set up events at a record pace.

But some of our friends have been using Telephone Townhalls and Microforums for years.

So, who should use a Telephone Townhall and who should use a Microforum?

If you are looking to engage a small group, less than 1,500 people, then you should consider a Microforum. You still communicate directly with your audience and they can communicate with you.

If you want to reach out to a larger group of people, then a Telephone Townhall is what you need. You can dial out to 2,000 or 200,000 people. The choice is yours.

In any event, try to secure a well-known person to join your call. Advertise the call to your donors or constituents so they don’t miss a minute.

One of our recent events even had a surprise appearance by President Trump!

According to news reports about the forum, that was hosted by Family Research Council, once President Trump heard who the vice president would be talking to, he knew it was something he needed to do! The President thanked the pastors on the call for the work they have been doing, inspiring their communities and praying for our nation. He reminded the group of influential conservatives about the recent policy successes he had delivered.

Is a Microforum Right for You?

Do you want to engage up to 500 people on one phone call? Do you wan treal-time feedback from your supporters/donors? Do you want to rally your audience to take action? A microforum may be for you!

A microforum is a moderated conference call where you decide who joins the calls, speaks, and asks questions. You can have one conversation with everyone who needs to hear your message, which is both personal and time effective.
The first step to a successful microforum is to spread the word to your target audience, whether that be through text message, calling, word of mouth, or even email. Plan your event with us so that we can guide you in the best steps to inform YOUR audience.
Step 2 is to begin with your end in mind! Determine the specific action/reason for your microforum. Is your goal to update your donors on private campaign information? Do you want to rally your volunteers before a National Day of Action? Are you in need of a private connection to give high-profile candidates a chance to speak to their top supporters?

ALL of the above are reasons to have a microforum!

The third step to success is to plan the call. You should draft a line by line script in order to make sure you tell your audience exactly what they came to hear! Jot some notes down on possible questions that may be asked – YES, you will be able to communicate with your audience. Not just that – but CampaignHQ will screen questions FOR YOU to make sure you get the questions you want to answer live! You can also ask a poll question to determine the opinion of everyone on the call!

It is always good in the planning phase to hold a brief meeting with us here at CampaignHQ to discuss the platform, format, etc. We will provide you the training you need at no extra charge!

Step 4 is audience participation! Ask your audience to press *3 to ask questions and engage in the conversation. Encourage participants to answer poll questions and follow up with them after the call. This is a great way to get information from your audience!
