Recruiting The Right Stuff

July 16, 2007 at 5:00 pm (Uncategorized)

As some of you know, my position in TWW is GM of Recruitment. When we initially had our meeting deciding who was going to handle what, I volunteered for what I saw as the most important INITIAL goal of TWW: to grow in quality and quantity. Without many friends to play or what with, what’s the fun? Without people to help you out or to have enough friends to run Kara together, what’s the point of a guild? So I’ve been working on building our numbers up by recruiting as often as I can.

However, recruitment isn’t just my job — it’s all of yours. If you want to see TWW grow into one of the BEST casual guilds in WoW, it can’t be just up to me. You should always be looking for unguilded folk that are friendly, mature and fun — and you should always talk to them about how great TWW is and why they might consider joining up. All of us PUG, and those are good opportunities to look for quality players that could use a new home.

I also spend time recruiting in /1 general chat of whatever zone I’m in, or in /2 trade channel in cities (I know it’s a bit tacky, but sending a /2 message SPARINGLY sends a message to five cities instead of one zone). I guess I’m sort of well-known for humorous or offbeat recruit ads, and every week I try to write up a few more so they don’t get stale. I’m about to retire the following ads, but if you want to take them and use them on your own initiative, be my guest!

    You are truly the king of kings when it comes to catchy guild recruitment messages!

    I have been trying to come up with a nifty end-game one, one to recruit Kara-ready people, or people who want to run heroics, but I guess I’m not that funny.

    And most of the people not in guilds aren’t in guilds for a reason when it comes to lvl 70’s. Sad but true.
