I am quite certain that Stella and Waffles would be connected on BarkedIn and they would create a lifelong friendship and networking circle. Bones. Bows. Barking. What’s not to love?

Fun With Phones – Tele-Townhalls

Have you been catching up on our latest series, Fun With Phones? 

 

Nicole Schlinger big bang theory

The CampaignHQ team is putting together some fun scenarios, reminding you that your next outreach campaign can be a lot of fun with phones.

Take for instance the fact that your donors want insider information on how your organization/candidate is doing. Can you blame them? They want to know how their hard earned money turned donation is helping! By holding a Telephone Townhall you can reach all of your donors in one phone call and give them the satisfaction of knowing that they put their money to a good cause! #CHQCampaign Headquarters

Give us a call today to get started. 1- (888) 722-4704.

Fun With Phones

Have you ever seen The Big Bang Theory’s episode featuring Sheldon Cooper’s, “Fun With Flags”?

Big Bang Theory Nicole Schlinger

We’re having some fun with this at CampaignHQ, and we’re highlighting “Fun With Phones” on our Facebook page. We recognize that sometimes when our clients are in the thick of a campaign, they might not remember all of the ways they can include phones or texting in their efforts.

Thinking through things that may unexpectedly come up, we know that the CampaignHQ team can help you overcome any issue that may arise.

For example, have you ever had a rally you want your volunteers to attend? Bus tour? National Day of Action? We can call your volunteers and let them know about the event, why they should attend, and how that will help your candidate. At the same time, we can also collect data from current and potential volunteers, such as, email, address, demographics, etc.

Keep checking back on our social accounts for more examples. And give us a call if we can help you approach things a little differently. 1- (888) 722-4704.

The Myth of Overnight Success

I’ve really been enjoying sharing some insights with my friends over at Campaigns & Elections lately. If you missed it, here are a few articles of mine they’ve shared with their readers.

They recently shared another, The Myth of Overnight Success in the Political Industry. 

Here’s a teaser for you:

Americans love overnight success. We believe this myth like we believe George Washington chopped down a cherry tree. That’s why shows like American Idol and The Voice are so popular year after year. But the truth is much less glamorous than the fantasy.

There are two kinds of overnight success in the political industry. You’re either a “Child Prodigy” or an “Iceberg.”

You can read the full article over here

Let me know what you think, I always enjoy feedback.

Patch Through Season Success

CampaignHQ’s Senior Campaign Director Marlys Popma recently shared a story with our colleagues and clients. I think it really shows what it means to have CHQ on your side, so I wanted to share it with you today.

It’s Monday morning.

I arrive at work, make myself a cup of coffee, and start thinking about what needs to be done this week.

Then the phone rings …

“Marlys, I need 5 patch through calls to 93 different state legislators. The bill is up for a vote TODAY and I don’t have any data or a script.”

Well, I love a challenge! And this was certainly one of them.

At CampaignHQ, we pride ourselves on Legendary Customer Service. In fact, you’ll see a sign on our doors stating our “Five Rules of Legendary Customer Service.” Here are the first two …

        Rule #1: Speed is key!
Rule #2: Go the Extra Mile (or two)!

I like these rules. I like being good at what we do and working in an atmosphere that fosters this approach to customer service.

So, back to my story:

To get this campaign started, we’d need to pull 93 different lists, write and approve the script, set it up in the dialer, and prepare agents to make effective calls … all before the bill came up for a vote!

I knew I could not do this alone. So several colleagues pitched in to help. (That’s what I truly love best about CampaignHQ!)

It was a race to the finish line … and here is the result:

Typically we tell our clients,

“Get us the data and approved script, and we will have your project up and running within twenty-four hours.” 

But let me tell you this, if you are in a pinch and you need something right away, don’t hesitate to call!

 

Above all else, Marlys’ story shows that at CHQ, the possibilities are endless and we WILL come through for you.
