In the fast-paced world of political campaigns and advocacy, you can't always plan your call programs. You may find yourself in a situation where you must get your message out immediately. Sometimes, campaigns get a last-minute donation that you have to spend before Election Day. Or an unexpected bill gets introduced, and you must start Patch Through calls immediately.
No matter the case, Stones' Phones expert team can help you get your calls up quickly. When you reach out to us, here are the most important things to include to ensure that your calls are ready to launch when you are:
● Potential dates for your calls to run
● Talking points for your script
● Universe size or parameters for us to purchase data
Plan Ahead Whenever Possible
Reach out to us when you have an inkling that you want to make calls, even if you're still determining if it will happen. With a heads up, we can start preparations in the background, so we're all set to launch your call program when the time comes. Even if you don't end up moving forward with calls, it's better to be ready!
One of the best ways you can plan ahead for texting is to complete the 10 DLC texting registration form as soon as possible. Registration can often take several days to verify. Registering too late can lead to delays for your texts. Whether or not you decide to send texts, it's better to be registered ahead of time.
Finalize Your Script
We need your final script approved by midday Eastern time the day before we start calling. If the script comes in after that time, we can often still move forward with calls but there’s no guarantee.
Starting your script as early as possible ensures all the details are finalized on time. This is extremely important because we want to give our call center operators plenty of time to be trained to read your script for every call perfectly.
Stones' Phones is here to assist you throughout this process. Send us your talking points when you think you might need calls, and we can start drafting a script for you. We know what works best for a call script, and we can craft your talking points into an effective script in our format at no cost to you. The script can be the most time-consuming element of planning calls, so even if you don't end up calling it's better to be prepared.
Gather Your Data
Similar to the script, we'll need your data submitted at midday Eastern time one day before calls can start. If you're not sure about the quality of your data, you can send it to us anytime, and we can enhance it for you. If you're unsure that you will go through with calling, we can still scrub cell phones from your list or add phone numbers if you send us a list of full addresses. We can also help you narrow down a universe or buy a data list for you.
We're experts in our field, so don't hesitate to ask us for help and guidance. Our experienced team can offer valuable insights and recommendations to optimize your call program. With over 20 years of experience, we know what works.
At Stones' Phones, our goal is to help you make an impact when it matters most. So the next time you face a time-sensitive situation, reach out, and we will help you get your calls out.
