The Townhall Connect allowed us to connect with a broad portion of our intended audience and was a great way to kick-off the campaign.

Automated Programs: Automated calls have proven to be a cost-effective way to reach a targeted group of people quickly.
- Voice Variable Programs: With state-of-the-art voice variable technology, FLS Connect is able to reach your voters with an automated personalized message. The personalized messages have the ability to combine, for example, the listener’s name and community or specific issue or event. It’s the next best thing to calling the voter or constituent yourself.

Mitt Romney for President Sample:
- Voice Variable Automated ID: Combine voice variable technology with an automated ID program increases participation. For voice variable automated ID programs, the Q1 response rate is 15-25%, unlike traditional automated ID programs of 10-15% Q1 response rate.
- Automated Advocacy/GOTV Calls: Advocacy/GOTV programs are affordable ways to convert undecided voters to your candidate or issue and turnout your supporters.
- Automated ID Calls: Automated Identification calls provide a snap shot of the voters and constituents opinions on a particular issue or candidate. They are an economical, fast way to judge current opinion by providing instant results.
- Voicemail Boxes: FLS Connect can provide an 800 number so you can digitally capture messages from your constituents or voters on a specific issue.
- Inbound Transfers: Enhance your automated programs with us with this feature
Live Programs: FLS Connect is proud to own call centers in Arizona, Minnesota, and Missouri. As such, we have the ability to respond quickly to your request. We also have exclusive partnership agreements with other call centers across the country. This allows us to manage hands-on and continually monitor all call centers and programs to ensure the highest quality calls are provided for our clients.
- Live ID Calls: Knowing which voters and constituents are on your side or might be is a critical part of your success. FLS Connect Live Voter Identification programs will identify these voters and constituents. Unlike many live call centers, FLS Connect only charges for those contacted.
- Live Advocacy: Live Advocacy programs are an incredibly effective way to convert undecided voters and constituents to your issue or candidate. A live well-written script, delivered by a trained professional, provides a personal touch to persuade potential supporters. Live advocacy calls can be a straight message or a message followed by a response mechanism.
- Survey Calls: Our Automated Survey calls bring just what you need to provide results you need to see from your hard to reach audience. Our calling system is able to better manage and monitor demographic quotas and give you the option to terminate calls based on question responses. This results in more statistically accurate results and our crosstabs help you further understand responses and how they impact your goals.
- Patch Calls: FLS has worked to design scripting and call systems that generate high-quality patch calls. Constituents are connected directly to their legislators, and in some cases are given individual talking points to help convey your message to their elected official in a personal way. Our patch calls are all conducted so that when we patch a call, the constituent’s phone number is what shows up on the legislator’s caller ID. This helps ensure that your call campaign has the feel of a spontaneous or organic effort.
“Geo Connect was so easy for our volunteers to use. They enjoyed not having to use paper sheets, pens, and clipboards. With their smart phone, they saw how quickly and easily households were updated in our digital walk books right from their own phone. Results were real time, allowing us to see the progress of each walk the same day, no matter where their location.” - Luke Marchant, Mammoth Marketing Group
GEO Connect allows your army of volunteers to canvass directly on their iPhone or Android smartphones. Your leadership team will also be able to better track volunteer’s movements between doors, using the interactive online hub. With a direct link to GOP Data Center/Data Connect, keeping your voter data updated is automatic.

Geo Connect allows administrators to create projects, assign walk books, manage volunteers and track results to efficiently maximize your organization’s resources. Also, use our dynamic scripting tool to target specific voters and assign multiple users to the same "walk book" to maximize your time in the field.
We also offer Walk Books for the traditional campaign. These books are designed to help volunteers navigate your canvassing targets in the most effective way. Walk Books are available in PDF version via our FTP site or they can be printed and shipped to you. Once we receive your select data, our sophisticated mapping program sorts the universe into the most logical route order using rooftop points. Targeted households/voters are listed and plotted on a corresponding map for easy canvassing. Our "closed loop routing" feature plots the first house and last house near each other – so volunteers start and end near the same point.
"In a tight Senate race, FLS’s expertise in identifying and turning out voters made the difference in our election. Volunteer Connect empowered our volunteers to contact tens of thousands of voters and turn them out on Election Day.” - Andy Blunt

Personal letters from constituents are proving to be increasingly effective in swaying legislators’ opinions on hot issues. FLS can economically generate hundreds or thousands of letters on your behalf – all unique, but conveying your desired message.
Each letter is personalized, individually signed from the constituent. While many letters can be generated from a supporter base of voters, letterdesk is also an effective tool to use to active employees or other business owners that are likely to be impacted by your issue. Letters from employees and business owners send a powerful message to legislators. We also do follow up calls once letters are sent to constituents to remind them to mail in their letters to their legislator.
