The thing is, it's a lot easier to organise a raid if you know who's going instead of relying on people turning up on the night. That way you can post some sort of tactics and player roles that people can read in advance which means raids will be more successful and encourage people to keep going. If you are doing new places/bosses you may as well PUG it if you aren't organised.
There are ways to encourage people to sign up too, in my old guild we awarded bonus DKP for sign ups etc.
