Just to help you out here......

Is it a new clan?
Do you currently have any members?
Where is the clan based? Euro/US?
What is your primary game type?

You're not very forthcoming with details on your clan.

You don't make any attempt to draw people in by getting people interested in anything.

A marketing/advertising person would concentrate on drawing as much "good" attention from their target audience as possible by including details & teasing information.

Hehe, a funny one.

I am in advertising. I get it

In addition to:
Is it a new clan?
Do you currently have any members?
Where is the clan based? Euro/US?
What is your primary game type?


Do you have a server?
What kind of people are you hoping to find?
Actually showing your email might help

Typical ad copy:

Headline: Attract attention
Currently "ohm clan"
Could have been "Join the fun-loving competitive ohm clan and get a free T-Shirt"

Sub-Head: Promise benefit
Currently "ohm clan is looking for new members"
Could have been: "A rare opportunity has arisen for you to join our fun and competitive clan. Tryout now, and if you make the squad you will get a really cool free T-Shirt, along with the prestige of placing these three wonderful letters in front of your online name"

Body Copy: Describe product
Currently "nada"
Could have been "ohm is a fun loving competitive clan located in the Northwest Territories just to the left of Hudson's Bay. We have a server with a P-100 powered by three gerbils and a hamster.

We plan to be a competitive mid-level clan with having fun as our priority.

We do not yet have a website, but if someone would be so kind as to help us set one up, we will give them a really funky free T-Shirt as a thank you.

Tryouts to be held at 8pm Nanuvik time at unreal://123.456.12.12

Footline: Reinforce Benefit
Currently: "nada"
Could have been: "Fun, prestige, and a really spiffy free T-Shirt."

Call to action: Like it says
Currently: "if your interested send email"
Could have been: "Send an email to me, Al Franken, at afranken@hotmail.com to reserve a time limited, while a position lasts only chance to have a fun time fragging with friends...and a chance to win a neat-0 T-Shirt, for free.

Well, maybe a logo will help them stand out.



No. I guess not.

Well if that's how you treat people around here, then I strongly discourage anyone from joining your team. I couldn't have any fun with this game if there wasn't any mutual respect and friendliness between my fellow fraggers and myself.

Wow, in his 5th post he finally got the idea that it might be a good idea to post the clan's website URL. (That website is indeed pretty cool; check it out.)

Fiend:
I hope you're better at playing UT than at raising interest in your clan. I assume it wasn't you, who made the ohm website?! You should let *that* guy do the clan PR.

Damn that's a nice looking website. You should get Cleaner to do your PR, no-one would have looked at it if it wasn't for his post
