Hot Trends: Telephone Town Hall Meetings

October 24, 2011

The latest trend in LIVE, person-to-person communications is telephone town hall meetings.  For budget conscious and technology savvy women candidates, Tele-Town Hall currently provide thousands of elected officials, political candidates, non-profit organizations, associations, and businesses with one of the most convenient and cost-effective means of mass personal communications.

Tele-Town Hall™ has developed patented technology that allows users to connect LIVE with thousands, tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands of households through an interactive town hall meeting conducted over the telephone at the touch of a button. Audience members are invited to participate in an open discussion forum, pose questions LIVE to the Speaker, and respond in real-time to polling questions without having to leave the comfort of their own homes.

Here’s how it works:

  • Tele-Town Hall™ rapidly dials out to a list of voter phone numbers.
  • The targeted audience receives your personalized, pre-recorded message inviting them to remain on the line to be transferred automatically into the live Tele-Town Hall™ meeting.
  • When joining the meeting, participants have the opportunity to ask the “Star Speaker” questions live, as well as to respond to real-time Survey Questions using their phone keypads.
  • Using a customized Tele-Town Hall™ Web Interface, the “Star Speaker” controls which participants ask their questions live on the conference as well as when to pose Survey Questions to the audience.
  • Participants, who are unable to ask their questions live, have the option to leave a personal message with a Call Screener or a Tele-Town Hall™ voicemail for the “Star Speaker” at the conclusion of the meeting.
  • Following the Tele-Town Hall™ meeting, you will receive a detailed report complete with participant statistics as well as a FREE digital recording of the event that may be posted to your website.
