Engage with your audience face-to-face.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, you may have noticed a large increase in virtual events over the past few months. We found that hosting live streaming events online is the perfect engagement solution to continue interacting with constituents when meeting in person isn’t an option, adding a more personalized touch. Best of all, you can use the platform during the general election blackout period!
Our Multi-Site Video Streaming service allows for your office to host a high-quality video streaming event with multiple hosts in multiple locations. You can choose to enhance your Fireside Live event and have both audio and video or choose to do an online streaming-only event. Similar to non-video events, participants can type in questions to ask and answer poll questions while viewing a video stream on the member’s website. Video streaming is easy for your office to do and does not require sophisticated video equipment!
Here’s the basics about multi-site video events:
- Participants can engage with hosts in a remote, secure, and interactive conversation by answering polls and typing their questions, all while viewing the video on your website and/or Facebook page.
- No software is required– all you and your guest hosts need is a laptop with a camera and microphone (or smartphone), and an internet connection.
- You can rest easy knowing a Production Specialist is working behind-the-scenes to ensure your video streaming event runs smoothly, creating a premium-quality stream. This includes adding custom graphics, designed to match your branding, to the stream when appropriate.
- Share a slideshow presentation, plus video clips throughout your event. You can watch an example event we did here!
Let constituents know you’re listening and communicate important information to them when they need it most.
