I don't think I've seen this mentioned, but one of the best ways to grow is by scheduling a weekly pug. Pick a time that most people can be on, say you have 5 people who can be on Friday nights. Pug the other 5 people and do a raid that fits your gear/skill level. After you finish the raid, let the pugs know that this is a weekly raid you put together, and send them a calendar invite for the next week. The next week you might not get all of them back, but you might get a couple. Pug whatever is needed and include them, along with the no-shows on the following week's raid schedule. Once you're ready, flip it to a 25-man and do the same thing. As long as your guild maintains a mature, fair reputation, repeat Pugs will notice, and if they feel they can get what they want by coming to your guild, then your guild grows. The most important thing across all levels is to schedule. Schedule VoA and Ony trips on Tuesday nights, and create regular pugs with that as well. (I only say Tuesday because from experience, people want to do those right away.)With the guild I'm in, there are a number of regular Pugs who have stuck with us through Naxx days, and are running ToC 25 with us now. Some of the Pugs have joined the guild, and it's helped. We even started running an Ulduar hard-mode with regular pugs who understand that we're trying to progress, and it might be messy.
