We often hear about people growing their communities, and it's fantastic to hear about the growth, but likewise, we hear about the failings too!

Whilst each game has an ingame list, they can not be relied upon for growth. Server lists often fail to show every game server, and more so, with the many thousands of servers that exist per game server, you will be like a needle in a haystack.

Ensure to take finding players into your own hands! We hope these tips will help you get your community growing!

Create a social media page/website/discord.

These are great ways to advertise your site and ensure all the information you want to have available is present. On top of this, you have a route to promote and grow your community. Social media is fantastic for finding players, as is running a discord server. In turn, this will also help you keep in touch, and communicate with your new followers, run competitions and even special events!

Advertise on server listing sites.`

There are many serer listing sites out there on the internet. Each with its design and functions. Many will have paid features to show up the server up the lists or even a voting function to let your players vote for your server.
