Usually you need promo type folk.

From my experience you need "demo people." You know the type that are excited over any product but not so much it seems fake.

As in the past, tournaments are not really about game play but sales of either the game, game gear and more. It's a marketing tool and so you need the right staff to help you generate your revenue.

Suggestion for your Website
Dec 6, 2013 11:51AM PST

As you have asked about the feedback, I want to be honest that you should move it to wordpress. It needs the following things to be done:

1..Responsiveness, as it is must thing now a days.
2..Pictures need something like an hover effect or should come in a pop up/modal/lightbox
3..Alignment both horizontally and vertically.
4..More content ....html to text ratio seems less
5..URL rewrite as its pretty long...but okay if its a short term objective only. Its not a big issue but usually a URL between 6 to 8 letters looks good....Facebook, Linkedin, Twittr etc

I hope you will take these as a positive feedback for your website development.

Thanks, Puneet

Good as you are new!!

Sharing this seriously because your performance as a new developer is very good.
There are a few things which need some resolution in terms of graphic display on website:

1. The banner images need renovation if you really want to attract.
2. Banner images should be highlighted using lightbox or other Jquery scripts.
3. Site loading time is good, but the fonts take time in menus, I think because they are google web fonts.. Seriously saying - either download them and upload on your own server or remove them totally. Not that good for website performance, remove external website/server dependencies as much as possible.
4. Placing surveys downwards is not a great option - add a flyout block using jquery for guests or users. That would look more decent and attractive.

Above suggestions are totally based on my role as a viewer more than a coder. Happy
Rest is awesome in your website, it has the potential of being catchy.. Good Wishes and Good Luck..
