Hustle makes converting readers into subscribers simple and fun.
Getting Started with Hustle
Hustle will be one of the simplest plugins you’ve ever set up. With just a handful of settings in our clean, modern UI, users will find it’s simple to create an elegant and personalized Opt-in tools for their users.
Start by visiting the Hustle tab in your WordPress admin menu in your admin dashboard. You’ll see only three sub-menu items, Opt-ins, which is a list of your current Opt-ins, New Opt-in, which allows you to build a new Opt-in from scratch, and Settings, which allows you to sync any Opt-in you’ve created with our e-Newsletter plugin.
Let’s jump right in and build your first Opt-in.
Name & Email Service Tab
Go to Hustle > New Opt-in.
This screen only contains a few options.
- Give your Opt-in a unique name. This won’t show in the Opt-in itself, only in your WordPress admin area.
- Select Test Mode if you’re not ready to connect your Opt-in to your mailing list service.
- If you’d like to save the email addresses you collect from your subscribers to a local list, toggle the “Save emails to local list” switch to on.
- Select your mail service (currently, we support MailChimp, AWeber, Constant Contact, GetResponse, Sendy, Mad Mimi, Infusionsoft, Campaignmonitor and our very own e-Newsletter.) and enter the required information. Detailed instructions for each service we support can be found at the end of this guide.
- Once your account is connected, you’l be able to choose the mailing list(s) your readers may subscribe to.
- Click Next.
Content & Design Tab
This is the tab where all the magic happens. These settings will allow you to customize your Opt-ins easily and efficiently.
Start by giving your Opt-in a title, and add a compelling message.
Click over to the Success Message Tab at the top of the Opt-in text editor to personalize the message users will see after they’ve been added to your list.
In the next field, select an image for your Opt-in. Click Select Media to choose an image/other media item from your WordPress media library or upload a new image/media item.
If you’d like to swap or remove this image later on, click the small button with an ellipsis (…) in the upper right corner of the Select Media tool.
Next up, you’ll choose from our four different display styles built into Hustle. You can add fields for first and last name, and swap the image position from this section. When you select between different Opt-in types, the preview underneath this section will change. Here are each of the Opt-in types we give you to work with. We’ve added a custom CSS editor further down the page to customize these options to your tastes.
Below the layout styles, you’l find a section where you can choose a color scheme for your Opt-in, either from one of our included schemes…
…or by creating a unique palette that matches the look and feel of your site with our very intuitive custom color tool.
Below the color options, you’ll find the custom CSS interface we’ve added, so you can customize any of the elements within your Opt-in even further.
And finally, you can add some finishing touches in the last section, including rounded corners and drop shadows.
Hit Next to move on to the final screen. You’re almost there!
Display Method Tab
This last screen will allow you to choose your display method. Hustle has five different ways to display your Opt-ins.
- You can display your Opt-in below your content on posts, pages, and our custom post types.
- You can display your Opt-in in a pop up.
- You can display your Opt-in in a slide in.
- You can display your Opt-in in a widget.
- You can display your Opt-in by placing using the shortcode the Hustle plugin will create for you.
Click open the settings for any of the three options displayed on this tab to adjust how you’d like your Opt-in to behave.
The After Content settings allow you to choose which pages and posts your Opt-in appears on.
Beneath these settings, you can select an animation for your Opt-in. We’ve included a full array of fancy effects to make your Opt-in stand out for your users.
If you’d prefer to display your Opt-in in a pop up, we’ve got you covered. Like the After Content option, you can choose the posts your pop up appears on based on categories and tags, and you can choose specific pages.
You can add an animation for when the pop up appears and is dismissed.
The animations available for the pop up Opt-in are the same as those for the After Content display option.
As an added bonus, we’ve pulled a feature from our PopUp Pro plugin, and given you the option to set conditions for your pop up Opt-in, including log-in status, device used to view the site, location of the viewer, and more.
Because we love our users so much, these two options are just scratching the surface of what you can do with Hustle. We also included a slide-in display option, so you get the functionality of another of our popular plugins, all rolled into this little gem. Let’s take a peek at what you can do.
Like the after content and pop up display options, you can adjust on which pages and posts your slide in will appear.
Along with adjusting settings…
…and setting conditions.
Guess what? You’re all set. Click next at the bottom of the Content & Design tab, and you’ll see this lovely success screen, which will allow you activate and deactivate any of your Opt-ins, as well as set any of them to admin demo mode, which will let you preview how your Opt-ins appear and behave, without showing them to non-admin users until you’re sure they’re ready to go.
Click Finish, and you’ll be taken to the Opt-ins tab, where you’ll be able to see all of the Opt-ins you’ve created, and manage the settings, active status, and display options.
To add one of your beautiful new Opt-ins to a widget, go to Appearances > Widgets in your WordPress admin area. Drag the Hustle widget to the sidebar of your choice and adjust the settings as you need.
