  • Live & Patch Through Calls
  We connect real people with real people. Our agents do everything from delivering a targeted message to asking a series of questions to event building and GOTV. These personal conversations can be used to create models, gauge public opinion of issues or candidates, or provide clients with the information they need to build their coalitions.  
  • Data Procurement
  Wildfire Contact works closely with industry leaders to help target, build, and purchase data for every type of program. Whether landlines, cellphones, email addresses, or names to go with phones on file, we get the data clients need to operationalize programs in the field. With the ability to procure a universe as wide as every registered voter in an entire state to something as granular as every registered voter in a specific zip code with a likelihood of supporting veterans issues and climate change issues, Wildfire will target and build universes that are the most impactful for specific outreach.  
  • Robocalls
  Wildfire offers an entire suite of automated calls, including leaving a standard message on an answering machine, a press one/interactive robocall, and conducting IVR logic surveys.  
  • Peer-to-Peer Texting
  With customizable, personalized, and professionally written scripting, Wildfire Contact executes texting programs off clients’ plates to reach thousands of voters or community influencers in your issue at the touch of the button while freeing up your volunteers to knock on doors and organize community events.  
  • Teletownhalls 
  Teletownhalls share information and developments with the community. Whether clients want to provide Information or gather it through polls and Q&As, Teletownhalls allow clients to reach a vast number of people simultaneously. All events are recorded for future use by your organization for added use towards earned media.   Earlier this year, Arc Initiatives also announced the launch of Arc Research, a full-service Research Department built by veteran operatives to offer clients a targeted and integrated approach to political, issue advocacy, and corporate research.   With this strategic partnership, Arc Initiatives and Wildfire Contact bring additional capacity to the table to help elevate the execution of political and issue campaigns.
