Hi folks, it’s been a sad few weeks as I have seen many VAs close and shut down. Mostly due to the same issue: "no applicants"
So why does this happen? And how can I fix it?
The reason behind this issue is the way your Virtual Airline operates. Players of Infinite Flight aren’t looking for a basic website with a couple of routes, they are looking for a realistic experience, something that is like a real world airline.
I’m sure you have found one before that’s not realistic, no time spent on it.
The main way to getting your VA started is to spend some time on it, it’s not just a topic and free wix or weebly website. Spending time and planning out your operations will create a spectacular VA, if you were to study the larger VAs like Qantas, Travelsky, American & Skyliner, you would find that these airlines/groups are very organized & professional.
It’s not only the organized and time factor, there’s advertising as well. How you advertise. Some VA owners will create a VA and spam the absolute h*ll out of the VA category. This doesn’t follow our guidelines, nor does it create a professional sense.
If your going to create advertisements, stick to your main topic and make them professional like.
Bad Example: Come join my airline!!! We have routes!!! We want staff
Good Example: XXX Virtual is a fully functional VA which operates realistic and fun routes for the Infinite Flight pilot. To become a pilot at XXX follow the link below… Etc-
These examples are very short and can be a bit more lengthy & detailed. But getting back to the main point; spend some time on it and get your name out, make a good reputation for that VA.
