What is a Virtual TownHall?

Whether you are a candidate, community organization or a PAC, The Stratics Groupís Virtual TownHall Meeting can help you connect with thousands of individuals simultaneously for a conversation over the phone to help get your message out. It combines features of a conference call with the functionality of a talk radio show.

Individuals are sent a message inviting them to stay on the phone and participate in a Live Virtual TownHall. During the meeting, people will have the opportunity to take part with the opportunity to ask live questions, answer polling questions, leave messages upon the conclusion of the meeting and other options.

Throughout the Virtual TownHall, if participants are interested in asking questions, they can press a button and be placed in a question queue. Professional Question Screeners will summarize the questions for the client and then place the caller back in the Virtual TownHall. The client, who has access to a web interface, will have options to rate questions and choose which ones go live. Through communicating with the Virtual TownHall team, utilizing the staff chat, the client prioritizes the questions and decides when a poll should be asked.

Our Virtual TownHall Moderator, working in conjunction with the TownHall Manager, invites the selected callers to state their questions, asks polling questions and facilitates the flow the meeting.

Upon conclusion of the Virtual TownHall, participants will have an opportunity to leave a message for the client. These messages, in addition to data from polling questions and reports on audience participation, are then compiled and forwarded to the clients within 72 hours of the event (two business days).
