Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to help guide your next event. 

What should we do to raise awareness for events?

Before the event, you want to raise awareness in advance of your events can help you gain a more engaged audience. A pre-call and/or Custom Promotion Plan can help let constituents know that an event is coming. Use social media, emails, texts, or autocalls to personally invite your audience to join the event and let your audience know what topics the event will be focused on addressing. Posting and emailing about your event several times leading up to it will help remind viewers to register in advance, and/or clear their calendars for the time of your event.

How do I set up a Live event?

Fireside and Broadnet work with you to prepare for your perfect Live event. You will have an initial setup form for your account. Following that, any added customizations like a CallerID or Promotion Plan, you will be asked a few important questions to ensure we proceed correctly with your event desires. 

Why do people drop off during events?

It is normal to see gradual drop-off throughout your live event. Also, keep in mind that cell phones are more likely to lose connection from their carrier, so it is helpful to provide constituents with methods to reconnect (the dial-in number, streaming URL, etc.).

How often should we host events?

Your constituents voted you into office and want to hear from you. Fireside Live events give you the ability to engage with constituents between in-person events and gives constituents the chance to participate however is convenient for them (on their landline, mobile device, or watching online). Fireside Live makes you accessible, enabling you to reach, hear, and inform a large audience from a distance or engage an audience you wouldn’t normally reach during in-person events.

If someone responds to our text, can I see it?

Like any event you host, you will receive a report of people that were reached and those that were not. Included in that report, you will receive anyone that responded to the outbound SMS message if you'd like to connect with them. 

Will I be charged if I need to reschedule?

Absolutely not. We will put a hold on the event and reschedule it for whenever your boss is able to participate!
