Want to set up a Discord server? Here are the steps you should keep in mind.
Discord is an invaluable platform for a community to connect with members, discuss shared interests, and build loyalty.
You can set up public or private servers on Discord quite easily! Follow the steps listed below.
Discord has both web and mobile phone apps. After installing one of them, register by entering a phone number or email address. Create a username and password. Click on the “Create an Account” button to complete registration.
After registration, click on the “Create a Server" button. Select a private or public server option. Name it and add a distinct image relevant to the topic of the server.
A Discord server creator can assign roles to users in the community. These roles are based on permissions granted. They allow users to carry out specific functions. For example, they can add reactions to messages or perform other administrative duties.
A Discord server can have text and voice channels. To set these up, launch the app and go to the server.
To streamline the community experience, a server’s channels can be categorized. These categories include FAQs, general information, giveaways, and announcements.
It is important to welcome new users so that they feel accepted into the community. It is also necessary to weed out bad actors. Discord bots for verification, such as Captcha, will secure and protect the channel. A welcome channel can also be created, which outlines the rules and what can be expected. Moderators can use Discord bots to create a welcome channel with custom messages.
Discord’s Server Insights feature shows data that is important to marketers, such as growth and engagement metrics. To access it, click on 'View Server Insights' in server settings. Marketers also need to dig deeper for better insights. Blaze is a community growth tool that analyzes data and measures strategies for success.
The server needs to maintain a healthy and productive environment. A Discord bot can act as an auto-moderator to prevent abuse and spam. Users can be warned and their messages deleted. For other functions, Discord bots such as BotDisco can send auto-messages on issues such as billing changes and document links.
