“How can I help the fleet?” As Facilitator of the Publicity Team, I get this question a lot. And there’s no doubt in my mind that the dedication and love of our members – expressed in questions like this – is what has kept our fleet going for more than 23 years now.
So here’s a few quick things that everyone can do to help:
Share our posts on Facebook and Twitter
Have you been to our Facebook or Twitter pages? We post a lot of content from around the Star Trek world and from our own community. When you see something you like, be sure to click the Like button and – if you’re so inclined – share it or retweet it.
Blog about us and share your experience
Do you run a blog? Or maybe a Tumblr? Linking back to us with a review of our community, and the game, can have a noticeable impact on our rankings in search engines.
Shoot for 400-800 words about your experience. You can talk about how you found us, why you joined, what it was like to start training, and how you’re enjoying your ship.
Not only will your post help others find us, but it will validate our community in their eyes when it comes from a personal review!
Tell your friends and family about us
Word of mouth is one of the most powerful forms of advertising and one that should not be ignored. You, in person, telling people about our community will inspire and get them curious about what goes on here.
Have fun conversing about Star Trek and how you solved an engineering problem aboard your ship or discovered a new form of life. Being able to show your enthusiasm makes it contagious and hard to resist!
