Overview - vBulletin Clubs

In every online community there are local clubs and groups that form to share their passions. With the online community as the backbone, use DTO Clubs to help these groups grow, find new members, and create new revenue opportunities for your site. 

DTO Clubs simplifies how site owners organize, aggregate, and share club information with your community.  Attracting local and regional based clubs to your site using vBulletin clubs functionality builds membership, creates good faith with members, and increases use of your site.  If, as part of your club support, you offer free club forum and calendar hosting, you can enable a regional advertising model to attract advertisers interested in reaching club members in their area; further growing site-based revenues

Club submission is self-service and administration is a breeze.  Club approval and modifications can be delegated to a site admin or moderator. Drive Thru Online can provide best practice and implementation examples to reduce routine site staff moderation tasks by enabling club calendar and forum management by trusted Club members. 

Create club specific self service calendars and forums in a few easy steps. Those calendars and forums can be added to the Clubs directory entry so that interested visitors can quickly find information about the club, their discussions, and events.
