Clubhouse: The New Kid in Town
Are you familiar with Clubhouse? This social media platform is still pretty new, but it’s picking up steam. One of the easiest ways to describe Clubhouse: When you were a kid, did you ever hold a glass to a wall to hear the conversation in the next room? Clubhouse is kind of like that, only scaled and organized.
Clubhouse is an audio-only platform where you can start a room based on a topic and others can join the room and conversation. You can bring people up to the ‘stage’ who have raised their hand. The platform supports multiple languages, and at any one time, you can see rooms in Russian, Spanish, Mandarin, German, Japanese, English, and many others.
Think of Clubhouse like this: It’s like an interactive live podcast. The platform hosts both personal and business conversations, so there’s a lot of noise to wade through, but that’s true of every social app. Many people love the lack of video that’s so pervasive on other platforms.
The main newsfeed in Clubhouse shows active rooms you might like. To join a room, just click anywhere on the room description. Once in a room, you can hear the speakers talking, or you might hear music if it’s a concert. You’re muted until you are invited on stage.
In a room, everyone can see users’ avatars. Clicking on avatars is encouraged and brings up a bio and direct links to users’ Twitter and Instagram accounts. You have space on Clubhouse to build an extensive bio, and this is primarily how other people in the room can get to know you, in addition to hearing what you have to say if you participate in the conversation.
Clubhouse is an entirely new and fresh way to market your business and let people know about your products and services.
