So I’ve had @Cosmos tell me to do a tutorial on how to get your guild active.
If you want other tutorials on guilds, go check out @Rosie’s tutorial on how to start a guild and my tutorial on how to keep your guild’s reputation alive!
Anyway let’s begin.
1 - Active event hosting.
If you want an active guild, you should always make events whenever you are able to. Or get staff to do it. It doesn’t have to be WoM events necessarily, any events people will like may do the job. Don’t make WoM events in periods that WoM is dry, because not many people will care about them.
2 - Allying with the bigger guilds.
Allying with guilds that can help you is always a good idea. It can boost your activity and get you more known around the guild community. Suggestions are Roselight Guardians, Ashes of Valcrest, Spellbreakers, etc.
3 - Integrating yourself in the community.
Entering the community is always important and for the most part, a great idea. The first way to do that is to enter the Forum Community. Be active there and often advertise your guild. Of course it’s not all about guilds, so try entering other parts too. Next is entering the Guild Hub Community. Although toxic and quite bad at times, it will get you known around there and help you with overall guild growth. But you should also beware of yourself if you do that, as saying something wrong can be a dead sentence.
Hope this forum post helps!
Bonus - Engaging with your community.
My bad I forgot to add this. Really important too. If you have a guild, try to engage with the community. Talk with them, and try to have fun conversations. It might seem awkward, but a guild where they don’t feel talked to can make them leave or become an inactive member.
