Running a successful server is hard - not only do you have to worry about infrastructure, uptime and keeping your server secure, but you need to maintain a good relationship with your player base and build a thriving community. At the same time, servers cost money - so amongst all the other challenges you need to find ways to generate revenue on your server to keep it running.
At Buycraft we have years of experience in running server stores and working with some of the top server operators in the industry and we've been looking for a way to start sharing what we've learned. Welcome to Buycraft University.
What is this all about?
Buycraft University is a collection of resources including articles, podcasts, videos and info-graphics providing tips and 'insider secrets' on how you can grow your Minecraft server as a business. Everything from monetisation to growing and retaining your player base will be covered and we will be speaking to some of the industry-leading server operators to get their views and insights, giving you the tools you need to take your Minecraft server to the next level.
What's in it for you?
Buycraft's success is the success of our customers - if you grow your server and increase your revenue, then we win too! Of course, we think the Buycraft platform is the best tool to help you monetise your server, so we will provide suggestions and tools to help you achieve the best results. Many of the ideas we suggest will work just as well no matter what platform you use.
What if I have a specific question?
In short, great! As well as the content we produce we will be answering your questions as well as putting them to our industry experts during interviews - simply email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and stay tuned! Likewise, if you have a story you'd like to share then we'd love to hear from you - get in touch on the email address above!
We're really excited to be able to start sharing our experience with you, and we are looking forward to seeing your server go from strength to strength over the coming weeks and months.
