This is based on what we know right now as at time of writing because even since we’ve been on the platform in the last few weeks it’s changed…
But that’s the joy of social media right?

Now as marketers we have to think about a few things…

Secondly how will I use it to get more connections and leads for my business
How to Use Clubhouse App For Business Owners and Marketers
While social media platforms come and go, Clubhouse is showing all the signs of turning social media marketing as we know it on its head. Here are a few reasons why Clubhouse may be the next major social media platform:
- It offers the ability to connect and engage with professionals outside of your industry or niche.
- The typical social media algorithms that help people create echo chambers on other platforms are replaced with spontaneous rooms filled with real-time chats on a variety of topics.
- The focus is on high-value conversations rather than produced content.
- Clubhouse users are already fiercely loyal and protective, so much so that they’ve been very particular about who they invite to join the app with them.
Most of all, Clubhouse is finally bringing into social media the factor other platforms largely ignore – audio. While other platforms focus on visual and written media (such as captions, images, and videos), Clubhouse shifts the focus to an audio-only format
For us having observed and participated over the past weeks we can see how important some of the key features are such as creating a key worded bio, what your interests are and connecting to your Instagram and/or Twitter accounts to go off platform for a conversation or to further discuss a topic of interest. This is virtual networking at it’s finest!
Where Things Stand…
Currently, Clubhouse looks like it’s going to be one of the biggest players in the social media scene. If it looks like something you will want to get involved in (albeit even a little later on) then sign up for the app on your mobile device (if you’re an Apple user) and see if you can get an invite from a friend who’s already using it.
You can find us as @ChrisBeesley and @SusanBeesley – we have two separate accounts so we can join in different conversations relating to what we want to participate in.
