~ How to use Clubhouse | Top 20 Reasons to Use Clubhouse

Clubhouse is something that I have started using and liking for the last two to three months. And guess what, since the last two months I have had a daily reminder in my calendar to join Clubhouse. This liking made me think of coming up with this article and addressing the possible “Know Hows” of Clubhouse.

Clubhouse is a Social Audio app.

On Clubhouse if you have ever used Twitter Space and liked it, then it is something that would release your dopamine.

Clubhouse is all about –

  • Rooms
  • Profiles
  • Clubs
  • Events

The top of all is ROOMS. People at Clubhouse can join their desired rooms. They initially join as a listener, given that they are interested to speak, they can raise hands, and from the Moderator’s panel, someone can pick them up to the speaker’s panel.

There are rooms about anything, I meant it – ANYTHING. It is a matter of searching to find out something you want to get in.

The moment you join Clubhouse, you get to create your profile where the default mode has integrated Twitter and Instagram to connect with your profile. You have to feed your profile with “ABOUT” where along with texts you can use emojis. Well, if you are dropping your LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook etc. the audience can not click on that and redirect. You can still keep it there though.

After joining Clubhouse you have to follow your interests and follow a threshold of nine people to finish your profile setup. You got a wide range of topics here to follow. Likewise Facebook, we have pages and groups about anything and everything there, in Clubhouse the scenario is the same. Well, do not expect the same amount of traffic as FB or IG on Clubhouse as it’s a new Social Media.

As per the data of Cybercrew, Clubhouse has got over 10 million users.

Clubhouse started as an invite-only app. You could only join Clubhouse if you were invited by someone. But not anymore. Now you can sign up with this app without an invitation and start using it.

This Audio Social Media App had its initial release in March 2020, and since 2020 many features and the UI have evolved over time. Its developer(s) are Alpha Exploration Co. and it’s available both on Android and iOS. FYI, it’s written in Python and Django and available in these two OS – Android 7 or above / iOS 13 or above.

  • Icon (Clubhouse icon is an amazing concept. It takes a DP of a real personality and then displays it as an app icon. Although Clubhouse has its official logo which is an wave and written beside that is Clubhouse. But while using an app icon, it does something interesting. FYI, the icon face, keeps changing. I have dropped the latest icon’s image below, you can also go and check all their ex. icons by clicking this link – ICONS.)

After the live conversation is winded up, still people can play the replay and listen to it. I have also heard that Clubhouse lets its users record a 30 sec of video. Never never found that feature. Probably in India its yet not available, or its not there anyways.)

Because it’s interesting!

If you are the kind of person who loves to connect with like-minded people and garner more opportunities and exposure, then it is the kind of social media you would like to be in.

Needless to mention, people who love speaking would cherish their time at Clubhouse.

  • IT
  • Digital Marketing
  • Networking
  • Technology
  • Life Skills
  • Startups
  • Design and Development
  • Leadership
  • Jobs and Career and Business

So, by any chance, if you want to hear me out on Clubhouse, then you know where to get me.

My name on Clubhouse is Soum. Here is a quick snap of my profile.

How-to-use-Clubhouse-Top-20-Reasons-to-Use-Clubhouse-app-soumendra-profile

I am a person who likes to speak, hear productive stuff, hence I fall for this social media network. Mostly I am active after 9:30 on Clubhouse, it’s scheduled. If you go to my profile, you will get to find out the rooms I have spoken to and if that has been recorded, given that the mod had kept the replay on.

You should use Clubhouse to get –

  • Freelance Projects
  • Clients
  • Jobs
  • Knowledge
  • Entertainment
  • Connections
  • News
  • Hire etc.

FYI, Clubhouse is flooded with rooms that do sex chat, create abusive rooms, hurts someone’s feeling and brings zero sense, hence likewise any social media, you have to be a wise person to be in here as well.

How did I start liking Clubhouse?

~ How to use Clubhouse | Top 20 Reasons to Use Clubhouse

Being a speaker and mod in different rooms I get to connect with a ton of business people. Connecting with such people lightens my knowledge. I get exposed to opportunities and share opportunities with them as well.

In Clubhouse I find many budding experts in specific domains. I have helped several of them starting from taking the right decision to getting a job or projects. It is something that gives me a kick too.

It is just two-three months of me exploring this social media, within such a time frame I was able to generate more than 4 leads for my services. Hence, if you are a service provider too, your voice and thoughts can get attention and appreciation and you may land up starting a new business or project.

I would encourage the youth to be on such a platform. In the last month, I see the audience size growing on Clubhouse and youth from 18 to 23 age demographic are tuning in with the productive rooms.

How to become a Clubhouse Influencer?

~ How to use Clubhouse | Top 20 Reasons to Use Clubhouse

The clubhouse is comparatively a new social network. Though it is not easy to get thousands of followers overnight or just by joining one or two rooms. I have been using it for quite some time now and maybe it’s more than 20 times I have joined rooms as a speaker. I started with 2 followers without any effort and now it’s almost 150. Hence you get it’s not super easy.

I see people who have more than 2K followers on Clubhouse. The number of such people is not so high but I can tell you exactly how can you get there.

  • Host rooms on a regular basis.
  • Spend more hours in the room that you have created. As within 1 to 10 mins you may get no one joining your rooms. But once people start joining, and you continue hosting the rooms works out well.
  • Take niches that have people’s interest.
  • Become an admin or mod of a club or events.
  • Share your profiles within your contacts as you can invite or nominate them for Clubhouse.
  • Offer value to peoples life.
  • Become a speaker in other rooms as well and build better network with them.
  • Follow other mods and speakers and the moment they speak or host a room you get notified and you hop in to join as a speaker.
  • Creating rooms on trending topics works.
  • Have a completed profile and finish your profile setup.
  • Try to share your credentials in your profile like your website, your blog, YouTube and other Social Media presense.
  • Be active on Clubhouse while providing info, entertainment or infotainment.

Can you do Video Calls at Clubhouse?

~ How to use Clubhouse | Top 20 Reasons to Use Clubhouse

No, you cannot do video calls on Clubhouse.

Clubhouse updated that they are giving an opportunity to upload a video introduction of the individual in the person, but it’s not available in India. It is primarily an audio app.

How to get a verification badge on Clubhouse?

~ How to use Clubhouse | Top 20 Reasons to Use Clubhouse

There is no verification badge so far on Clubhouse.

If you have a look at the profiles which has more than 50K+ followers, they also do not have any verification badge or blue tick. Here are two –

If you Google the same, on the Clubhouse official website also you get nothing.

FYI, Clubhouse is still a budding platform. So, several attractive things that you find in other social media platforms, you may not get on Clubhouse right at this point. But am damn sure they are coming up with this sooner.

What is the difference between Clubhouse and other Social Media?

~ How to use Clubhouse | Top 20 Reasons to Use Clubhouse

Clubhouse is likewise to other social media in terms of its UGC pattern.

UGC means User Generated Content.

At the end of the day if you are not creating content on any of the social media then you are not getting eyeballs. The funda remains the same on Clubhouse as well.

Closing thoughts

~ How to use Clubhouse | Top 20 Reasons to Use Clubhouse

Clubhouse is good.

I prefer using it while I work during night hours. I join rooms that are productive, at least for me. Clubhouse is a great way to hang out with social media while you are in your senses. Like in Instagram, there are a lot of people who keep scrolling reels without any clue and spend hours on a go. You will get into the Clubhouse and there are two objectives, one is to listen to the speakers and the other is to speak. You get to engage with a POV on this platform.

I didn’t mean that it cannot be a time waste. At the end of the day it definitely depends on the individual, but yet the weightage will be more towards my above statements.

So, go Clubhouse and make use of your precious time by connecting with like-minded people.

Thanks for reading.

All the best.
