Teletownhalls by TTHM

How does a Telephone Town Hall work?

Jump to Basic TTHM Service Package
Jump to Optional Add-On Services

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.

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.

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 before handing over to 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.

Full TTHM Event Staff

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.
