We will place a group order each time we reach an increment of 10 books. Ordering timeline depends on how many book orders are placed; please do not use this form for orders you need by a specific date.

Payment is due at time of order submission to Haymarket. Orders are shipped to Milwaukee DSA. We will reach out to you to arrange your payment and pick-up of your book(s).

Starting a Spoke Campaign

Spoke Best Practices

There are several best practices related to avoiding your messages appearing to be spam; too many spam messages can lead to the FCC shutting down your number. Best practices are:

  • Initial text messages for each round of outreach should include “Reply stop to opt out” in the message body.
  • Do not use the same initial text for multiple rounds of outreach. 
  • Use only known or likely cell phones (if pulling from a VAN, this is a criteria you can select). Try to not message land lines.
  • Exclude phone numbers that have previously indicated to not text them to avoid a high rate of opt-outs from your initial message.
  • If you get any carrier violations, stop sending. Carrier violations are a specific error type; other error types are generally not an issue, although if you have a lot of landline errors you should clean up your list so that you don’t get carrier violations. 

Other best practices include:

  • For political campaigns, consider VAN integration to import your Spoke results into the VAN. Alternately, you can manually create this data based on Spoke exports.

If you have events or meetings that you want shared across the chapter’s platforms, please email the chapter at Please include the title, a date and time, location and a short description.
