Question about phone-banking for Ron Paul

Reader Bill writes:


How do you get the Phone-from-home program to leave a recorded message if you get an answering machine? I have not watched all of your video. Was it in there? If not, tell me the secret. I've just been checking "not available" and moving on.

Thanks for the help.


I'm glad you asked, Bill. This was actually confusing for me too for some reason, so I called the hot line number at the top of the phone from home program's page when you first log in and I asked them what to do. They explained it perfectly!

As you can see in the screen shot at the top of this post, when you hear the phone go to voice mail and begin playing the recorded voice mail greeting, just click the "Voice mail" button highlighted by the red arrow above and then confirm that selection and move on to make your next call. The system will automatically play them a pre-recorded message from Ron Paul asking for their vote.

With this system in place, you can make so many phone calls in a short amount of time because when it goes to voice mail, it takes you just a few seconds to click a couple buttons and then do your next call. You can knock out 15 calls in five minutes like this if a lot of them are voice mail, and they still get reached by the campaign and get a nice message from Ron Paul.

Hope that answers your question! For those of you who haven't watched it, check out this video where I register for the Ron Paul phone from home program in less than five minutes on video and report what I'm doing as I'm doing it in real time so you can see how easy it is to sign up and get started. (It's super easy!) This is one of the most important things you can do to reach voters and help Ron Paul win!
