Are you tired of those pesky articles which promise guaranteed growth… Don’t worry you are not along, here is an article which will show you how to grow your Discord server, Social Medias such as YouTube, Instagram & TikTok profiles. I’ll share my experience which will teach you how to increase engagement and retention, growth methods and much more.
To introduce myself, I’m Richard and I work on my Discord server Magicly Advertising which currently has 82,000+ members. I hope to share a portion of my experience with you today.
How to get a member to join?
The first thing before we can move onto anything else is getting the member to checkout your server, this is arguably the most important part of the whole process, but how do we get them to join? Step-by-Step guide to a good and effective Advertisement.
Step 1: The first step to create a catchy advertisement is formatting, there is a huge difference between a Coding server, and an Anime server for example so you wouldn’t expect the design to be the same. You need to establish a theme you want to follow. Generally for a community a aesthetic theme is applied. Picking the right theme is different for every server but it’s very important to do. https://www.symbolcopy.com/aesthetic-symbols.html has some aesthetic charter’s which I would recommend trying out.
Step 2: Great now we’ve decided on how we would like the Advertisement to look it’s time to put the pieces together, just like how you would assemble a burger. I follow the 4-tier rule, why I follow this is because it provides the member reading a fruitful short & sweet taste for the server, engaging them to find out more. So the first part, our header/server name. The server name will usually give the member a sneak peak into what the server is about, and it’s crucial to include. Part 2 short description 1–3 lines max, give the reader something to feed off, something to inspire them to continue reading. Part 3 Bullet point’s by this stage you’ve hooked the reader, and now they are debating to join or not. Make good bullet point’s which reflect what your community is about, for example “Weekly Event’s”. Part 4 hopefully the member is now inspired and eager to join their new adventure. It’s now time to include a closing description we recommend one line max and a Invite link.
Example of a well-put together advertisement which will grow your discord server
Congratulations, the hard part is done. Where can we post our newly made advertisement? We found Disboard, Top.gg & discord.me to be the best listing websites to publish your advertisement to, this provides automatic exposure in search engines. However it’’s not great you should consider joining listing servers, some of the top ones provide a huge user base for you to advertise to. We recommend Magicly Advertising this will provide you with the ability to show-off your newly designed advertisement.
How to increase member engagement?
Great, now we’ve got members! you are starting to grow your discord server! But how do we keep them engaged, & interacting with the server? This proves to be a huge hurdle for a lot of server’s but i’m going to share my secret formula. If you implement these 4 thing’s you should see a sharp increase in your server activity.
Step 1: Level rewards is a must for any successful community, grow your discord server with these is easy & free to setup with a bot like Arcane. Level rewards provide member’s intensive to be more active to achieve the next level, not just in the chatroom the VC too! Level reward’s need a reward of some type, it could simply be the ability to see a super cool chat or even as basic as the ability to use a custom command.
Step 2: Event’s, people misunderstand this term for a server wide massive get-together but this just isn’t the case. Hosting events like that are helpful however small event’s with your member’s help build a genuine server activity. Community Competition’s such as server icon & banner events. Those type of event’s create a strong community.
Step 3 Bot’s this is a must, having bots such as DankMemer, PokeTwo and other popular Discord bots increases the activity drastically.
Step 4 Create a server suggestion channel if you haven’t already, the most important voice in a server is it’s member’s. Improve upon suggestion’s and make regular updates to keep thing’s fresh.
