LiveVox offers a predictive dialing tool that calls cellphones and landlines, and has a much higher pick-up rate than OpenVPB. HubDialer offers an auto-dialer that calls landlines, with a script built into the web interface.
To get started with either of these, you should just follow the instructions on the campaign's phonebanking page. This page should guide you through setting up your LiveVox/HubDialer account, and how the dialers generally work (see the helpful videos and docs). For LiveVox, you can also see each state's script there.
If you have any trouble or just want company, consider checking the volunteer map for a phone bank near you and drop in. The volunteers there will be happy to get you setup! You can also e-mail [email protected] (the campaign's official Help Desk) for troubleshooting assistance, or use the Live Chat on the phonebanking page.
This is straightforward; just sign up!
To log your calls, you need to grab one of the following:
Once you've added it to Chrome or Firefox, you're good to go! Just log into Bernie PB, use LiveVox or HubDialer or OpenVPB as usual, and start calling! Note that you must have the Chrome/Firefox extension installed before you log into LiveVox, HubDialer, or OpenVPB.
You can click on the extension icon (near your address bar) and check your current stats in the "popup" that shows up. The extension's icon will have an "!" overlaid if you're not logged in to Bernie PB - so pay attention, or else your calls won't be counted! Note that you might have to close and open the popup for your stats to be correctly updated.
