Fun Friday – The Community of Flags

For today’s Fun Friday post, I thought I’d give you a little insight to one of the great communities CampaignHQ is proud to be a part of – Brooklyn, Iowa!

Here’s a great look at why CampaignHQ is located in Brooklyn.

 

If you ever have the pleasure of being in town, swing by and check out the flag display. “The Brooklyn Flag Display is located at 302 Jackson Street.  It features a 20 x 38 foot flag flown on an 80 foot pole.  The 80 foot flag pole was donated by Alex Wehrle.  It is surrounded by flags from every state and the Armed Services Flags.”

Have a great weekend!

Your Election is Not Cancelled

These past few months have been full of uncertainty. You may be wondering… How will you get your name on the ballot if you can’t door knock for petitions? How can you express your views on the economy to your voters? Will the election be held on the same day or postponed?

Voters are just as full of questions… Where do I vote? How do I vote? Who is even on the ballot?

One thing is for certain, if your primary is scheduled for June 2 or later, your election is not cancelled!

With door-knocking and events out of the question, now is the time to re-open and jump start your campaign, starting those crucial conversations with voters in new ways.

How can CampaignHQ help?

Voter ID

Telephone Townhalls

GOTV

VOTER ID

Use the month of May to learn what your voters think! Since in-person campaigning has been impossible for the last 60 days, you may have pushed back your voter ID. CampaignHQ can help you get back on track and identify your supporters and undecided voters.

We can set up an automated call quickly, and they are extremely affordable! We can help draft a script, record the audio, scrub the list of mobile phones, set up, and launchUsing an automated call to survey voters can help you get the results you have been anticipating quickly!

CampaignHQ can also assist you with a live blind ID call. Simply send us a list of voters you would like us to contact and we can do the rest!

 

Telephone Townhalls

CampaignHQ can help you rally your supporters and show undecided voters that you are ready, able, and willing to talk with them and answer their questions!

Setting up a telephone townhall is easy when working with CampaignHQ. Simply send us a date and time you would like to talk with your voters (or constituents on the official side!) and a list. We will help you record your sound files for a pre-call, live answer, voicemail, and even post call! We can also help you invite voters via text message and advise you on how to promote the event through your email and social channels.

 

GOTV

As the country re-opens and election day grows near, phone calls can significantly impact your turnout. We are in an unprecedented time. Some people have never voted by mail and if they don’t request an absentee ballot, they may not be able to vote for you on Election Day! Others may be confused how and where to vote, now that protocols have changed due to social distancing.

CampaignHQ can send out a conTEXT message letting your voters know where their voting location is on Election Day! We can even text voters how they would apply for an absentee ballot! As you know, nothing is worse than voters not showing up to cast their ballot!

Give us a call,

Nicole Schlinger, President of Campaign Headquarters

Newsflash: phones are having a moment

The #1 challenge campaigns are facing is how to have meaningful conversations with voters when they cannot campaign in person.

People are isolated. They’re craving the back and forth, the personal connection. The only medium that allows for two-way, meaningful interactions are phones.

Of course, this isn’t an either/or decision, but phones are stealing the spotlight back from the always popular digital, TV, and direct mail. Campaigns are seeing mixed results by using these typically productive outlets as ways to reach voters. Why? Well, for one, people are experiencing the crisis in many different ways and it’s difficult to craft a message with one-way forms of communications in a way that resonates with all voters.

With phones, your message is nuanced and particularized in a way the other tools just are not capable of. 

If you’re looking at an early June primary, your election will take place on schedule, and it’s coming up quick. Some voters may be casting their mail-in ballots right now!

Candidates who figure out how to have real, two-way conversations with voters are going to have a major advantage over those who just blast their information in your face.

Now is the time for a more in-depth phones strategy. We can help.

Tele-Townhall
Voters get an opportunity to ask you questions, share their opinion, sign your petition, and hear your answers in a forum that’s no longer possible in person. (WATCH VIDEO)

Peer-to-Peer Texting
Candidates make a 20 second video and send it out to their voters. Campaigns can target EXACTLY AND ONLY the voters you want to see your video and ask them to share their opinion with you. More targeted than digital, more affordable than TV. Even county and local candidates can make their own TV commercial. (WATCH VIDEO)

Automated Messages and Surveys
A particularly cost-effective way to reach seniors, and most effective when the message is delivered from a trusted, respected member of the community.

People are at home and they’re either scared or they’re mad. Successful campaigns can answer that basic need for human interaction, but they can’t do it with a digital ad, a tv commercial or direct mail.

Phones will help you meet voters directly where they are. Let us help you get back to basics…and plan your WINNING strategy today.
