So I made a thread to offer up marketing/recruitment suggestions for the KI team...now it's our turn. Please feel free to offer up your own suggestions to either thread & pretty please, keep any posts constructive & Epic, Mega, Super please- be respectful of others posts & opinions. Thank you
.
So Mew & RB made it known that new recruitments/memberships are crucial to P101 moving forward in a positive direction. They want to provide us more quality in the story & content departments. To reach out to the players really shows the passion they have for developing this story & game. Clearly KI's higher ups can do more to help promote, market to & recruit new members...but that doesn't mean we can't help out.
.
Clearly more can be done to bring in new players. So, what can we as players do to help recruit new members & why should we? A simple answer to the second part of that-- we love the game & want to see our pirates embark on future adventures, & we want to enjoy the same quality storytelling & gaming content that we have experienced throughout our Spiral journeys.
.
Here are just a few suggestions that we can do, as players, to help fill the Skyways with new pirates.
.
1] Spread the word on social media
.
If you have any form of social media account(s), then sing praises about P101 & let your friends/family know about the game & the adventures that could await. Visit sites like MMORPG & sign-up to provide reviews & support for P101.
.
2] Start a Pirate101 Fan site!
.
If you have some extra time on your hands (that's a big "if" for many), then download the P101 fan site kit & submit your fan site to KI. Maybe you could have a hands-on experience with spreading P101 excitement and possibly reel in some new members. What could be more awesome than that? Truthfully, I've thought about doing this myself & if I had just a smidgen more time I would go for it...still might!
.
3] Register &/or Support existing P101 Blogs/Fan Sites
.
There are many official P101 fan sites out there & they have a treasure trove of Spiral wealth to share with P101 players. Many hard-working fans/players dedicate a lot of time, passion, heart & effort into maintaining those sites &providing some really cool guides/posts/info/blogs/strategies to the players. Chrissy, Kelsey, Paige, Swordroll, the Duelist crew, the P101 Central, Frostcaller & so many more giving players dedicate themselves to sharing their passion for P101. Go check some out & spread the word!
.
4] Host P101 related events
.
With this, I mean more so in a casual sense. Register at sites like Pirate101 Central & post a thread to hold a fun Spiralin' event. Try to spread the word & show your enthusiasm for P101. Also, maybe have a P101 themed birthday party (IRL) to show some of your friends what they are missing. Give out P101 gift cards for birthday presents- might hook a new pirate! Create your own P101 flyers & pass them out to friends, family & neighbors (get parents' permission 1st!)
.
More to come...
