Besides the below suggestions there isn't a ton of help without more info. Things like: can they see the server but not join? Does it try to connect but fail? Are you all on the same version? Etc.

Do you have a suitable DNS to identify you on the network, or did you send them your IP address ?

Your external IP specifically, not your routers internal IP (typically 192.168.x.x)
