TELE-TOWN HALL Technological advantage: dials thousands of households simultaneously Creates an enormous conference call, or A live “town hall meeting” with thousands of citizens …all over the telephone.
TELE-TOWN HALL Enables a live, personal contact with citizens in their own homes. It’s interactive. Participants ask questions, vote on polling questions. …most cost-effective means of making direct, live contact with citizens.
It works through a simple user interface over the internet here’s how…
Prior to the event, pre-program polling questions…
For example: “Do you agree or disagree… If you agree, press 1 If you disagree, press 2”
Start the event The program begins calling thousands of telephones in minutes
and watch the rising number of participants joining the call Watch the call progress as the program dials the list of telephones
Operator screens questions Those joining the call are instructed to press “0” to pose a question live to the VIP A call operator is standing by to screen the incoming questions from those in the queue.
The operator clicks on the name of a caller who would like to ask a question… screened questions then clicks “allow to talk” and, speaking privately with the caller, takes notes on the question
Vip Speaker responds live to questions Those callers whose questions have been screened by the operator then appear on the VIP’s control screen
And the VIP, by clicking on the name and “allow to talk” is able to choose the questions. Like a radio call-in program, the VIP has a dialogue with the caller while all the other participants listen live to their conversation
Vip conducts a mini-poll The VIP may also poll the audience on the pre-programmed questions And while listeners respond on their telephone keypads the poll results appear live for the VIP
TELE-TOWN HALL Many more add-ons are available – like webcast. But it’s simple. And it’s the most cost-effective means of live, targeted communication.

It makes me truly happy to see that he is really listening to us, that he really pays attention to the party’s supporters.”
