Long story short, me and some friends bought a new guild so we start out own semi-hardcore group since we got the experience needed to lead the raids. All of us got ToT cleared on normal several times (12/12), but the guild progress is 0 because we just bought it. Since our realm is dead, there is close to no chance to find 6-7 decent people for Siege of Orgrimmar (Good ilvl+skills).

Our decision was to wait for connected realms shortly after 5.4, but my question now is: How/Where to recruit people?
Spamming trade would be a nice answer, but how will we attract people if we have 0 progress in guild, except the officers?

Any advice is welcome!
