What your office needs to do before, during, and after your first telephone town hall event.
So, you're holding your first telephone town hall. Whether it's to announce new legislation or to react to a national event, this interaction may be the only opportunity you have to reach certain constituents in your district who may not be able to make it to your in-person events. Like most outreach, a telephone town hall is what you make of it. There's a lot of opportunity to meaningfully engage with your constituents before, during, and after the event. In honor of our reception with Broadnet last week, we thought we'd go through everything you need to know about holding your first telephone town hall.
Can't send mass mailers with Office 365? IQ can help!
Many offices rely on Microsoft Outlook to send press releases and other targeted outreach. However, with the recent migration to Office 365, Outlook limits the number of recipients for mass mailers to 500 contacts, making it impossible for some offices to send outreach to their lists. If your office is experiencing this problem, IQ is here to help! With the capability to send to an unlimited number of contacts, allow you to easily update lists, import new data, and view outreach analytics with ease, IQ is the perfect tool to manage the mass mailings that Congressional offices send on a regular basis.
