Call Center Feedback NeededSubmitted by gmason08 on Thu, 10/25/2007 - 16:05
I need feedback on whether there is support for developing a grassroots call center operation/assistance in implementing this proposal.
Calls are far more efficient than door to door and beginning now to establish this capability will allow for growth/refinement of the operation. Also, having the potential to quickly and directly get the RP word out and get feedback on the message and data on it's acceptance will become more important going forward to the primaries and general election. Being able to massively target specific important and/or weaker support areas rapidly would add an important tool for the revolution.
We all know time is very short/it is crunch time. Therefore, it is essential that we get as much bang for our buck/time as possible.
Success in two areas, IMO, leads to the greatest overall return to our effort to get RP nominated/elected our next Potus:
1. Total Fund Raising-Let's face it, this is the way the game is played and we can all see that our most important breakthrough to date has come largely(solely?) due to putting up respectable F R numbers.
2. Gain more new committed/diehard supporters to our cause-i.e. each additional foot soldier for the effort has great potential for a multiplier effect (the "and they told two people" concept). Additionally, any person recruited to the cause with the dedication to help spread the good word has a high probability of contributing money/casting a vote.
How to kill the above two birds with the most efficient stone possible?
My proposal to answer that question follows(in brief):
***The proposal is to initiate an organized but decentralized phone bank operation as soon as the basic details can be agreed upon.******
-Many of us have unlimited domestic long distance phone plans, as such our costs for calling masses of people in Iowa/NH/SC/MI/WY/etc. over the next few months are no greater than under normal circumstances.
-Actively/directly explaining RP's message is more effective than simply encouraging people to "do their own research", helps eliminate the chance that the message is garbled/an incorrect first impression and allows for immediate feedback as to acceptance of the message and data to measure progress.
I have further support for my contention that this proposal is the best way, at this time, to achieve 1. and 2. above and have some specific ideas about how best to implement this proposal but I would first like to ask for feedback from the members of this forum as to whether the concept is worth exploring further. Please take a few moments to consider my proposal and express your view on the matter.
PS- If this idea has been proposed before I apologize for not being aware of that fact and request to be directed to the relevant info/contact.
