The Mayor of NYC sent out robocalls urging landlords to put up homeless families in exchange for cash reward. Robocalls are all the rage these days - all the cool kids are doing it. Why not you? Rates as low as 1 penny per call!

More tips from The Robodial Team:

1. Microtarget. You can send different demographics different messages, so use that to your advantage! Young people care about different issues than older people, so why send them the same generic message? 

2. Don't rush! Trying to speed through your message will not help your constituents learn about you. Make sure you're audible and they can understand you.

3.  Less is more.  People have things to do, so pick one or two things you want to say, and say them. For everything else, direct them to your website and give them a number they can call.

Some pre-election week tips from The Robodial Team

1. Plan ahead. People can become overwhelmed with robocalls on the Monday before Election Day and on Election Day, often opting not to answer their phones unless it's a number they recognize (plus those are the busiest days of the year for robocalls, so you don't want to be turned away if we fill up). 

2. Stand on the shoulders of giants. Many organizations send out robocalls at 10:30 am local time to target answering machines, which allows their constituents to listen to their messages at a time convenient to them - why not piggyback off of them? Start targeting answering machines this week!

"FTC gets $10M from massive text spam, robocalling schemers." 

Here's a not-so-subtle reminder of why we scrub your list for cell phones for free and why we proudly prohibit telemarketing.

http://www.networkworld.com/article/2837397/security0/ftc-gets-10m-from-massive-text-spam-robocalling-schemers.html
The FTC today got $10 million to settle charges against three sets of defendants to settle charges that they operated a massive scam that sent unwanted text messages to millions of consumers, many of whom later received illegal robocalls, phony “free” merchandise offers, and unauthorized charges crammed on their mobile phone bills

Robocalls more effective than previously thought -

Professor finds 75% of people listen to more than 19 seconds of a robocall, meaning they hear about 40 words. About 97% listen to a minimum of six seconds.

A robocall seems like an idea out of a 1970s sci-fi film—dated and easily dismissed—but according to research by Spencer Kimball, a scholar-in-residence at Emerson, these prerecorded phone messages for political campaigns have the public’s attention.

We've made some changes! If you have an emergency notification that must go out, make sure you check the "Emergency Robocall" box when submitting your list through the Get Started page. We'll keep the cell phones in your list.

Sirius XM is the latest company to be hit with a robocall lawsuit - this one for unsolicited telemarketing calls to cell phones. The suit asks for actual damages, $500 in statutory damages and $1,500 in treble damages per call, as well as injunctive relief.

Here's an example of how to incorporate wireless consent into Terms of Service [please excuse the headline]. AOL now states that it can send autodialed pre-recorded messages to its users' provided numbers from time-to-time.

Why choose Robodial?

  • First and foremost, we care about the world we live in - that’s why we refuse to do calls for groups that do nefarious, misleading, otherwise questionable calls.  We feel these kinds of calls undermine democracy, and have no place in our political system.

  • We know what it's like to run a campaign on a shoestring budget. The owner, Mark Hampton, once served as the First Vice Chair for his local Democratic party organization, and knows what your campaigns are going through.  We can help you get where you want to be.

  • We offer some of the most competitive prices in the industry with calls starting at 1.0 cents per call.

  • Our ASR (call completion rate) is among the highest in the industry.  Our Dallas-based data center uses redundant interconnects with Qwest, Level3, GLobal Crossing and NTT (Yes that is geek speak for state-of-the-art technology) to give you high-quality reliable calls.

  • We worked hard to build a system from the ground up that can handle as many as a million calls a day, and although we may have started out small, this is no longer a garage-based operation!


Who We Serve

  • Communities and municipalities

  • Non-profit organizations

  • Schools

  • Churches

  • Clubs, groups, and sports organization, large or small

  • Businesses sending notification calls to their customers
  • Progressive organizations and candidates, and their allies


Who We Won’t Serve

  • We adhere to a code of conduct that prevents us from engaging in calls presenting a conflict of interest.  For example, we try not to run calls for opposing candidates.

  • Until we have an enforceable policy that complies with new restrictions imposed by the FTC, we will not run any commercial robocalls that promote a product or service, including business-to-business robocalls.

  • We do not make telemarketing calls.


How We Keep Costs Down

  • We use state-of-the-art technology and aggressively negotiate rates with top-tier carriers to bring you high quality calls at the lowest prices in the industry

  • We're all about choice.  If you want to save a few bucks, try our free self-setup system.  With our self-setup system, you can send a robocall whenever you want with no setup fees -- you just pay for the calls.  Setting up a robocall with our self-setup system only takes a few minutes, and we provide you with tutorial videos to help you get started.
