Advertising // What to buy?

Discussion in 'Server & Community Management' started by NaJated, Jul 7, 2015.

  1. Hey fwends,

    I have about $70 to spend on advertising for my server once it's in a more solid state.
    What does everyone suggest investing this into? Was thinking about 2 hours on Minecraft-server-list.com or maybe a few youtubers?

    Thanks,
    Nathan xD

  2. For £35 you won't get a lot of advertisement on websites with a high traffic these days.
    I'd suggest to use it to improve your server with it by either buying plugins or hiring a dev to make a custom plugin.
    Make sure your server stands out.

  3. With that sort of budget Project Wonderful is your best bet. It allows you to bid on ad spots at the top of popular server lists. By bidding a small amount on several of them you can get really good value traffic. You can get like 1000+ unique views for something like 60 cents if you spend some time optimising it.

    This explains that and a few other options in more detail: http://www.mcserver.tools/tips/best-ways-to-advertise-a-minecraft-server

    *If you need some more help on Project Wonderful do say, I can post a few screenshots of some of my past bids. :)
     
  4. Ya, on my last server (2+/yrs ago) I had $20 to spend so I spent it on Project Wonderful and amazing results,
    40+ Unique players a day!

    I advertised on minecraftservers.org (They dont use PW anymore cause there greedy:mad:)
