How to Effectively Communicate During a Pandemic

The team at CHQ recently hosted a webinar – How to Effectively Communicate During a Pandemic. I wanted to share some of the information with you, hopefully it’s useful for you and your team.

We have posted the full Webinar on YouTube, in case you missed it or want to go back and reference a few points. But I also posted a few short clips below to check out.

I wanted to provide you with a brief recap, starting with the Four Ways to Make the Most of the Opportunity.
Nicole Schlinger Infographic
1. Build a grassroots army now that you can mobilize later. Telephone petition drives are great for this – call voters, ask them to add their name to a petition. For those who agree, we collect their email address and ask them to volunteer. Right now, you have people’s attention and you can capture their information to build your supporters. (Watch short webinar clip here).

2. Introduce yourself. The best way to do this is through is peer to peer text, where you can have a two-way conversation with a voter at their convenience. You can also push a 20 second TV commercial directly to the voter’s phone, giving them a better glimpse of who you are. (Watch short webinar clip here).

Peer-to-Peer texting can help you safely collect enough signatures to get your name on the ballot.

3. Survey your audience. Use automated surveys (which are inexpensive and fast) to gather critical data on your audience. You can weed out disconnected phones and make the most of your volunteers’ time when it’s time to start doing campaign calls.

4. Have a Conversation. Telephone Townhalls create a large audience and are always a great resource when trying to update your voters on quickly changing information.

Give me a call or drop me a line if you have any questions or we can get to work on a project for you today.  1-888-722-4704 or nicole@chq.us.

Pandemic Requires Campaigns Shift to Reach Voters

Nicole Schlinger Iowa Field ReportYour voters and donors WANT to hear from you. But you must communicate in the right way. Thanks to Iowa Field Report for letting me share in this article.

Schlinger says that she was initially hesitant about advising her candidates to continue fundraising, however, after monitoring the current environment over several days, she realized that campaigns need to stay engaged rather than go into hibernation.

“They [Campaigns & Candidates] need to be sensitive to the situation, but they should be engaged. People are at home, and they’re following the situation closely. Voters want to be involved. They do not want to be shut out” said Schlinger.

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.
