You may have noticed in the past that I tend to get a good chunk of recruits every year or so. I want to share an idea I came up with after looking through multiple sim leagues, our very own VHLM system and after watching some Marketing ad on youtube before I finally got to "Birthday" by Katy Perry.


So as some of us know, the SHL has a great and easy time collecting new members for their site. The sheer volume of members signing up during their recruitment drives is amazing. However, over here we do things a tad differently when it comes to recruitment. We don't get quite the volume they do, but we do retain a larger percentage of our members. That simply means the quality and length of a members stay may be longer during his initial singing up process. So what does that have to do with the future? A lot.


Retainment; to continue to hold or have.


Now retainment is one of the easiest ways to expand and grow our VHL community. Why? Because all it is is attracting some members that may have gone inactive or simply clicked on the site, signed up and had no clue what to do. I as well as many others here seem to talk up new members through chat or PM. If you search the VHL by this button:

Then it will bring up this menu on the left hand side:




You can see who just signed up, how many posts they have and even the date they signed up. I encourage anyone to view this every once and awhile and see guys who haven't posted once. PM them or see if they are online and try to coach them through. Also when they do create their player, ask where they came from in addition to who recruited them. It is easier to get ahold of them the next time around. Boom and the rest of the Welcoming committee can't always be online, so it's great if the entire VHL community can help these new guys out. But there is more!


Sterling will be introducing an August recruitment drive that has large incentive with grabbing new members from other boards. Before he does that though, I figured I would let you in on a non-time consuming way of getting members and also getting some TPE into your sweet sweet update threads. Listed in the second post of this thread are the current members name and anyone who was recruited by that "inactive" member. I encourage you to contact them via PM, Email, real-life or any other way you know you can contact them. Hint: Going to the site/forum you found them on is also one of the best ways of getting them back. While you are there see if you can update or post a VHL link somewhere.


Any questions, PM Sterling, Kendrick or ask below. Happy Hunting VHL'ers!
