Telecommunications services such as Interactive Voice Response Systems, or robocalls for short, are the most cost-effective way of getting your message out. They are also the most misused. Cor Strategies isn’t just a service provider, though we can certainly accommodate your every need. We are your partner. Our team has over 18 years of experience developing custom solutions for our clients. The listen time and complaint percentage on our calls is lower than all of our competitors because we understand how to use this technology effectively.
In addition, our competitors cannot match our quality. Inferior providers draw unwitting prospects in with attractive low rates, but never mention that they achieve these rates by speeding up their dialers which results in drastically lower connect rates. In other words, you are paying for calls that never actually happen. In addition, they don’t provide call detail reports, leave you on your own to identify and prepare your data for broadcast, and sneak in hidden fees and charges.
Our quality is unmatched and our prices are reasonable. We add additional value by helping you identify the best geographical and demographic criteria for your calls. You receive call detail reports after each call showing call results by number, connect times, and buttons pressed which enable you to capture data and clean your list. Finally, you have special options available to you such as custom caller IDs, response capturing, and personalized messages. Whether you’re a robocall skeptic or a frequent dialer, let Cor Strategies upgrade your telecom experience.
Are you winning? Did that last mailer work? Did your opponent’s attack raise your negatives? What are the most important issues to voters in your district? How popular are other elected officials in your district? What are the most effective attack lines against your opponent? Where are your numbers today in relation to a month ago?
If you don’t know the answers to these important questions, it’s time to do a poll.
Cor Strategies offers a number of polling options, allowing us to customize your poll around your budget and desired output. We provide live and automated polling. We can output only toplines or have our experts extrapolate the data and provide detailed crosstabs and pivot tables. We can do simple snapshot polls or detailed benchmark polls. The questions can be linear or dynamic with each question based on the respondent’s previous answer. In short: we have the solution for your every polling need.
Anyone can feed a few questions and a list of phone numbers into an automated system. But you can’t trust the numbers that get spit out the other end. Your perfect plan for victory could mean absolutely nothing if it’s based on inaccurate poll numbers.
We pride ourselves in our polling accuracy, with our projections tracking within 2% of the final results each election cycle. This is the result of our intricate attention to detail in pulling the initial list and developing the polling sample, steps many smaller polling firms skip. We also engage our experienced communications team in developing the poll questions in order to ensure the results accurately reflect the views of those in the targeted district. Finally, our strategy team summarizes and explains the poll results, ensuring your team can accurately implement the data in your campaign and communications strategies.
Tele Town Hall Meetings
There was a time when if you had something important to say, you simply had to rent space at the nearest VFW or library, put up a few fliers, and alert the local newspaper and the room would be full. That time wasn’t too long ago.
However, times have changed. Thanks to the proliferation of technology, the public is no longer willing to come to you to get information. If you have something important to say, you must find a way to go to them in the comfort of their own routine.
Enter the tele town hall, a town hall over the phone. This technology allows you (and any special guests) to discuss the issues of the day with the public in your targeted area, and none of your targeted individuals need to leave home or disrupt their schedules.
Here’s how it works. Our expert telecom team helps you develop the necessary scripts, determine and identify the list of phone numbers for those you wish to reach, and record the necessary messages. At the start time for your town hall each of the numbers in the list are dialed and they receive your pre-recorded message inviting them to stay on the line and be automatically connected to the free tele town hall. Anyone who does not answer receives a special voice mail informing them of your outreach attempt. Those participating press a specific number if they wish to ask a question, and after talking to a screener (who makes sure they should be allowed to speak) they are put in a queue for you to engage as desired. All those participating will hear the conversations and can even be polled throughout the town hall. Afterwards, data on those who participated and the results from any polls taken during the call are provided to you in a comprehensive report.
The tele town hall has become one of the best ways to get your message to the public, and Cor Strategies does it better than anyone. Our connection rate is superior, our support staff is more knowledgeable, and our team is more helpful than any of our competitors. Even better, our prices are so good that many municipalities, elected officials, school districts, and political organizations have made us their preferred telecom provider. Follow their lead and you will quickly learn why.
Do you have a social media presence? Are you engaging current and potential supporters or customers directly on the platforms that have become integral parts of their daily lives?br>
Sadly, many businesses and campaigns miss the true power of social media. They either ignore the platforms completely or create a profile and haphazardly follow people like online spammers.br>
Cor Strategies can help you do it right.br>
First, you must have profiles and pages that stand out. This is achieved through distinctive graphical profiles containing concise yet interesting information. Then we help you develop engaging content by combing existing content and generated stories with personal anecdotes and custom graphics. This information is delivered regularly at times when your target demographic has proven to be most active. We also engage your fans and followers directly to build individual relationships and brand ambassadors, and monitor your networks to respond to comments and replies while responding to or deleting any negative feedback.br>
To immediately grow your networks, we activate those are currently engaged with our brands, giving you an immediate boost. After this step, while your networks are growing organically, our proprietary software works in combination with our other efforts to continue to grow and enhance your visibility in your targeted region and amongst your targeted demographics.br>
The truth is that you cannot handle your social media networks yourself, despite how excited you got when “that one person liked your comment that one time.” We know how to create fans rather than followers and how to generate shares and retweets instead of just likes. Maintaining your own social networks produces limited results while taking you away from what you do best. Let us maximize your digital potential.br>
Whether you are looking to increase sales or run for office, the most important thing you must do is properly manage your data. And we are willing to bet our lunch money that it’s the last thing on your mind.
Barack Obama didn’t win in 2008 because he was better at utilizing technology than John McCain, as many have intimated. He won because his team was better at collecting, managing, and utilizing data. They worked to collect every detail they could on voters, and then tailored their outreach efforts based on the preferences and beliefs of the individuals.
The ability to do this is not exclusive to Presidential campaigns. All it takes is the right data infrastructure, a plan for utilizing that data, and the proper mindset on the importance of personalizing your outreach to potential customers or voters.
Our team can help with one or all of these important steps. First, we run your lists through our specially-developed system which uses existing data to determine other relevant factors for each record such as name, location, education, age, gender, income level, and even political leanings. This information can also be augmented through purchased lists. We then create the proper infrastructure for holding, maintaining, and supplementing this data over time through your regular day-to-day activities. Finally, we develop a marketing plan for reaching each of these individuals with personalized pitches, combining the features of your product or highlights of your platform with the individual personalities we can model using the data we have collected.
Each of us is more willing to purchase a product when the pitch is personalized with our name and preferences. We are each more likely to vote for the candidate who focuses on the issues about which we care most and has an image compatible with our lifestyle. With the proper list management, your success ratio will shoot through the roof.
