Have you ever wanted to start your own Discord server but didn’t know where to begin? This blog post is for you! We’ll cover 8 ways that can help grow your server and get it up and running in no time.
Invite people from other servers
One of the best ways to get new users on your Discord server is by inviting them from other servers. There are a few different ways that you can do this, but we recommend using direct invites or posting in channels with similar interests as yours.
Create an attractive header
The first thing anyone sees when they enter a Discord server is the header image. Make sure yours has text and graphics that draw attention and make people want to stay around and join the conversation.
Encourage users to help each other out
Try creating a “help desk” channel where your members can post questions and get them answered by other experienced users who frequent that server. This is a great way for people to learn tips and tricks from one another while growing a sense of community in the process!
Buy server members for social proof
There are plenty of websites, like Gramlike, where you can buy Discord members to increase the social proof of your server. This works because more social proof means that the server is worth joining, which in turn will attract more members.
Give away free stuff!
A fun way to get new users excited about your Discord community is by offering them something they can’t get anywhere else – prizes for participating on your server! This could be anything from beta access, exclusive deals or even entry into a raffle where they have the chance to win an expensive item like a gaming mouse or keyboard. Giveaways are always popular and it’s another great way of creating incentives for people to join up with you.
Add Discord bots to your server
Discord bots are a great way to keep your community interested and entertained. There are lots of bots you can add to your Discord server that have different functions, from keeping track of the users who come online every day or hosting trivia games where they compete against each other for points, depending on how well their answers match up with correct answers.
Add voice channels
Voice-based communication makes it easier for members in your community to communicate during events like live streams or gaming sessions. Even if people aren’t using them at all times (or even ever), adding voice chat will make new visitors feel more welcome joining in since this is one aspect they may already be involved with on another discord server.
Share your server on social media This one might be obvious, but it’s still worth mentioning. Whether you use Twitter and Facebook to share your server or just put up a link on your website, if people find out about the existence of your discord channel through other means that you didn’t personally promote them as an admin they may not feel compelled to join in right away since there isn’t any existing community waiting for their input.
