TTHM Teletownhall Forum Megaphone virtual mass-communication

How does a Telephone Town Hall Meeting work?

At Telephone Town Hall Meeting (TTHM) we create unique virtual forums over the phone and web using Teletownhall digital event technology. We dial your target audience and build a much larger virtual audience than other digital forum formats. Our expertise helps us build dynamic, direct, interactive forums that engage and educate your audience.

Each Teletownhall is customized and professionally managed by our experienced staff. TTHM provides Moderation, Screening and Data Collection services for every event. We make it easy for your featured speakers to focus on delivering strong messaging and answering live questions.

Our push-dialout brings thousands of participants to the Telephone Town Hall Meeting by calling them directly and encouraging them to stay on the line to join. Targeted participants are called with a recorded message explaining the purpose and format of the forum, then they join automatically. Listeners learn about featured content, engage in live Q&A, and vote in real-time polls.

We also provide powerful Add-Ons to our tele-townhall events so that our clients can maximize engagement. Our telephone town hall meetings embraces a comfortable forum format similar to talk radio that brings in casual listeners. For more tech-savvy participants, we offer Webinar Integration and Web Simulcasting. Using bilingual Operators and live Interpreters, we can even add Alternate Language Simulcasts to give your audience a choice of languages as they join the forum.

Telephone Town Hall Event Promotion

The TTHM Toolbox includes a host of other powerful technologies that can be combined with Telephone Town Halls, or used as stand-alone outreach services. Below you will find a video outlining our production process, a list of services included in our Basic Service Package, and Optional Services to expand your Teletownhall event.

Basic Service Package

Base Dialout

We initiate a dialout to a targeted phone list at the start of your forum. Those who answer join automatically. A TTHM moderator manages event initiation and listener onboarding before introducing featured speaker(s).

Real-Time Polling

Our moderator can use the in-event polling feature to gather broad feedback, run demographic polls, or allow participants to tag themselves for ongoing outreach.

Interactive Q&A

Questions are submitted throughout the forum by live participants. TTHM staff provides screening services while our moderator manages the live event flow.

Q&A is controlled by the teletownhall moderator to ensure a productive forum, and to allow our clients’ featured speakers to focus on delivering quality content.

We also encourage clients to provide a handful of written questions. Our moderator can introduce these questions to help focus the discussion on ideal topics, and to make sure that specific information is delivered through Q&A.

In-Event Opt-In Collection

Our moderator and/or your featured speakers can ask participants to opt-in for ongoing outreach via email, text, etc. Our data collectors interface directly with participants that choose to opt-in to ensure that collected data is accurate and actionable.

Rich Reporting

Our expansive reporting package includes participation charts, detailed stats, poll results, submitted questions, participant voicemails, and a quality recording of the entire teletownhall forum.

Optional Services

We frame our opt-in requests so that positive respondents can simply reply ‘YES’ to be added to your teletownhall dialouts in the future.

TTHM staff sends an initial text message plus scripted follow-up messages to targeted mobile phones. Message recipients can opt-in for upcoming events, opt-out of future contact, ask for more information, or be directed to a specific web page.

**Clients who use Text Alerts to promote their Teletownhalls build an expanding list of mobile users that are dialed first for each forum. These participants are self-selected so they submit more questions, vote in more polls, and stay on the phone longer.

Getting Started

Most events last for an hour, but TTHM can accommodate longer/larger forums. Teletownhall tech can handle outbound dials of hundreds of thousands of phones. Learn about how we customize our productions for the different Markets We Serve.

We can provide a cost estimate based on the likely size/length of your prospective event plus any optional services.
