Hey, in this post we will give you some tips to populize your FiveM server – and get more players. It is mandatory to build a playerbase, and it can be hard and frustrating to start. There are different ways to advertise and gain popularity. We will show you the best ways and make sure to teach them to you!
There are many popular FiveM servers – and a lot of bad ones. Because there is a big amount of non-quality RP servers, that’s why it has to be said that it won’t be easy to grow your server fast. But here are the best, most efficient ways:
1. Join Facebook groups and create postings
Create a post on Facebook about your server. Show the best features, like import cars, job possibilities or maps that your server has to offer. Make a collection of pictures, or better: Make a video with cool music. People will click and watch videos more than pictures and over Facebook you’ll get a lot of good attention for your server. Join groups with topics: FiveM, GTA 5, roleplay, etc.
2. Build a website and forum (important)
You need a Discord server – but have you thought about having an own forum or website for your server? It is important to do so – because players can find you with the Google search then! Create a website with a cool design, pictures, features and a server video. If you are looking for good examples, consider looking at other servers and their websites.
3. FiveM server list
Ensure that your server is findable and visible on the FiveM server list. People will find your server better and better and your population and player base will grow exponentially. To do so, check your server.cfg file if you disabled the server listing. Your server isn’t visible? Port 30110 has to be forwarded too, so make sure it is.
4. Tell your friends
Tell all your friends about your server. Find streamers to engage with your server. This will let your server grow very fast! Communication, friendships, etc. matter and are important for your server. Post your discord server link to your friends and friend discords.
5. Server lists
Submit your server to server lists like fivem24.com and people will realize your server and might check it out. If you want to make your FiveM server popular, this is also one way to start with. Server lists are a good way to advertise your roleplay project and get a good player base because lots of people are looking for servers around the web.
