PostSubject: Clan Success Tips   Mon Aug 17, 2009 12:29 am

I ran a google search and I found this page to be very helpful. It's mainly from a leader's perspective however, you guys can accomplish these tasks as well. Check it out:

Yeah I can see a lot of those points are relevant. It will be a lot of work but will be worth it. Maybe it would be worthwhile to think of somekind of business plan to incorporate into the clan. I haven't any good ideas but if I think of a good money making scheme I'll let you in on it.

The only money scheme I can think of is a tournament or contest sponsered by Uprising Soldiers.

Maybe later down the line, say if everyone paid $5 entree fee in a standard deathmatch tournament and 32 people entered that would be $160. The prize could be $60 and the $100 is for clan running costs. If you held on a month, I know it's not a lot of money but it'd help towards running costs such as hosting fees etc.

Actually anywhere between $50 to $100 a month would be a great amount to run this clan. We could host our own website and have servers with that amount of money.

Yeah, we could use the money to build a computer to serve as our server. I'm not really sure how many server slots we could run, but we could ask around a little bit and find out what kind of specs we need for a good server and what it would be capable of.

Well if we could do it that way instead of me building one myself that would be great. Instead of buying a server it would be much cheaper to build one and although there is a big distance inbetween us we can correspond via email etc and I could give advice. I'm currently studying my Comptia A+ and will start Comptia N+ after that. I do have networking experience and although I couldn't afford to fly out to the States to set it all up (Hey I'd love to visit the US!) I can still help from a distance. I think we should really start with a tournament when we have say at least 20 members and hold one a month. You could poll which games to choose for the event and we could pay the entree fee via paypal. Once enough money has been saved up I would advise on building a Tesla
SuperComputer as the server. They are immensely powerful but if that is too expensive then I will find cheaper alternatives. We have to do this you know. Any netwoking questions don't hesitate to ask.
EDIT: I've just been checking and you can build a brand new server for around $300 whereas a HP server will cost you around $399 (comes with less features). The OS can be expensive though costing around $150 for Windows Server OS. You can get a 120 day free trial of Windows Home server here so when you get round to building it give that a try (120 days will give enough time to save more money from events to buy a server OS). You can get cheap motherboard/CPU/RAM bundles also. I picked one up for £100. Biostar is a good up and coming brand.

Theres always sponsorships, if you agree to advertise for a company on the site they may be willing to pay the costs which to them will be very little

That's a great idea. We can build our own but also have one from a company. We need to get out there and advertise, sure enough we can find a deal.

What you need is as it's a gaming site get someone like ebay or amazon to pay us to have an advert on the site which links to them to buy games etc.

You would have to contact them and give information on how many hits the site gets etc. You have to sell it to them.

eBay - http://contact.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ContactUsNextGen&guest=1

Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/contact-us/general-questions.html?ie=UTF8&nodeId=508510&type=email&skip=true#csTop

Note: You can ask both of them but you would only choose one (The one that pays the most to be advertised).

Should we as a clan come up with a message to e-mail them?

That sounds good.

Heres something I think we should do. Whenever we can we should make a site with more to it than just the forums. A good example is this site: http://www.pixelsmashers.com/

Theres a forum, but they also post news and reviews. I don't know what you guys think, but I really like how I can see the gaming and hardware news, read reviews and use their forums all from one site.

That is a good idea, but I don't have Dreamweaver on my computer. We'd need someone with it to make our website.
