Practical ways and steps to Creating and Maintaining a successful team can be as simple as playing chess. Creating a Team - Basic admin - Invite Function - Forums - News - Team Matches

 

Creating a Team

  • Make the name catchy - Examples:  Romeo and Juliet - Spartan Warriors
  • Create a Team for your country or region - Example: Turk Chess Players - Team Russia
  • Make the name strong: Example: The Power of Chess; Chess School
  • Create a structure - Have a good mission, vision, goals

Basic administration

  • Initially only have 1 Super Admin. As time goes by add more for continuity. Most of the successful teams have 2 or 3 Super Admins
  • Have admins for continuity, as reward for good service, to assist with admin
  • USE FORUMS
  • USE NEWS
  • USE INVITE FUNCTION
  • CREATE TEAM MATCHES
  • CREATE LIVE TOURNAMENTS

Use Invite Function

  • You can invite ONLY 30 members at a time
  • You can handpick people to invite - copy and paste user names
  • You can use - " Share - Members " to find member names to copy and paste
  • You can use - " Home - Stats - Select Leader board - Global " to find member names
  • YOU NEED TO GET A SYSTEM TO FIND YOUR TARGET MARKET

Use forums

  • This is to keep members informed
  • Familiarize yourself what "stick" and "lock" can do for you
  • Stick important forums such as mission and vision statements

Use News

  • News is probably the best way to reach your members
  • If you are already an admin in another team you can even use this to invite members to your new team
  • Use news to inform members of matches, etc

KEEP YOUR TEAM ACTIVE - CREATE TEAM MATCHES!!!
