Sending Initial Texts

The initial texts are pre-written scripts you send to every contact. They generally ask contacts a question, such as if they’re interested in an event or if they plan to vote for a candidate.

How to Send Initial Texts

  1. Open the Hustle app or website
  2. Tap the button that says “Begin Sending Invites”
  3. Swipe left
  4. Review the initial texts and swipe left (don’t edit them)
  5. Press Send

Hustle automatically displays the next person on the list after you send a text. Keep pressing Send!

A bar at the top shows your progress. Hustle assigns you batches of 50 contacts at a time, but you can stop at any point by pressing the X in the upper left corner. (Don’t worry, another volunteer will pick up where you left off.)
