Honestly, 1500$ feels like it can't get you anywhere in terms of advertising.

Spent over 300 dollars the last 2 months. Player count... (It's peak time as we speak)

How do you see the playercount like that? Also if I were you, I'd close down a few servers and concentrate on like 2 or so.

I've spent $25 on having a server on a shared host (just to start out). I have 10GB ram (and can change this to whatever number I'd like). I have 75 slots. We've been open for a month. I've put $300 into advertising and this is what our past weeks statistics look like. Today, we reached a full server for the first time and peaked to 75 players (I really don't know why it happened but it did).

MC Status Viewer (It's somewhere on Spigot - Made by vemacs).

We recently dropped Skyblock and Vanilla. The other gamemodes are equally populated depending on the time of the day.

Hey guys so if you were starting a server how would you make the $1500 into a great server?
EDIT: Around 200 on the setup, graphics, shit, and 1.3k on advertising.

Why do people need so much on advertising, If you want a good playerbase the player will come to your server.

You haven't been in the minecraft server business long lol, all servers need at least some advertising.

To get your server noticed to those players that would play your server.

They aren't just going to type a random server IP in their Minecraft and join it that way are they?

I had two youtubers record (Only paid $200 for that) and bought 4 hours of .org, 3 hours on a tuesday (veterans day) and 1 hour on a Saturday. This totaled $100.

I don't attribute my playerbase to be a result of those things however.

I attribute it to having a unique gamemode, referral system, and community of players who truly care about the server and want it to grow.

I'd buy a new graphics card, to uh.. Host the server from. I personally see that putting that kind of money into Minecraft is crazy now as compared to a year ago.

As most said, $200 into graphics will do you well and then the rest into ads and devs. I'd look into something unique, it'll get free/cheap hosting if you try hard enough.

I hasn't always been like that. My old skyblock server had an average of 20-25 player throughout the day and peaked at 60. Not a single cent was spent on advertising, although it was bumped on PMC every few days. The server was only up for a year.
