Clubhouse App, used it yet?
Have you heard of Clubhouse? It’s an app on the apple products via iPhone/iPad. Android might be available in the future. https://www.joinclubhouse.com/
So what is Clubhouse or CH as some call it? Clubhouse is a new type of social network based on voice—where people around the world come together to talk, listen and learn from each other in real-
It reminds me of the old party lines back in the day. Not exact but you don’t know the people that come into the rooms till you chat with them. It is ADDICTING! I can tell you first hand, I have had to limit myself from the hours of usage and or time of day. Like any other app there are the fake people, the sales people, the drama people and general riff raff as I call it on the app. Just ignore that and find your tribe. My friend Liz Mahoney found her tribe, and after sitting in her room, I love the idea of being Limitiless.
As of February 2021, it is in beta still and y invite only. I have a few left and reserved as we speak. I would suggest you get on your favorite social media app and ask people if they have an invite so you too can get in on the fun times.
I could sit here and review this app, I am not going to do that today. What I am going to do is tell you how it works or could work for you. First off, if your in sales, push that word aside. DO NOT go into room and or work to sell what you have or do. Instead introduce yourself and get to know the people and they will ask what you do, and then and only then you can give your 30 second pitch, although it is stretched to 1-3 minutes. Be honest with people and keep it short. If you try to sell, you will get blocked by people and they will stay away from you and tell others. It is a sure way to get nothing out of the app. So be kind and follow the rules. I can help you if you want, reach out to me and we can work a room together for your first time.
My first time in the app after being invited by good friend Liz Mahoney, was not that good. All I heard was drama and everyone was all over the place. The direction of the mods was not monitored and no control in the rooms. In fact I saw a lot of trolls in the room just causing hate or drama. Ugh. After a few weeks, I decided to try it again. This time, I scrolled through what they call the Hallway and after hitting a few rooms, I heard the conversations and it seemed to be different this time around. After scrolling a few rooms, I left the room quietly. That’s what they call it.
All of sudden, I saw a headline. “This is my last room on Clubhouse, I am done!” – That intrigued me to go in and hear what was going on. Upon entering the room, I noticed about 64 people total with about 8-10 moderators (MODS). After hearing a few topics that was going around, I finally decided to step out of my comfort zone and pitch in my 2 cents. it was not long before people were connecting with me and or asking me questions and I too became a MOD. WOW!
Long story short, myself and roughly 20 others loved the connections and new friendships, we decided to keep the room going, indefinite. I wanted to set a new record of 365 days. I had heard around 20 ish days were currently in process. But our room died out soon after 75 hours.
What happened next is I found myself pitching in and helping wherever I could. What I found out is this. People need to talk and we need to listen more. The conversations were ALL over the place and almost every topic you could think of. Even some we possibly should have ended sooner. The result was astounding. I found a tribe and connections and it was not too long before I was helping create rooms, opening the conversation and helping MOD where needed.
As of today, I write this as it was time to let people know about Clubhouse and what it really can do for you, like my new friend Shelly Yoshimura from Hawaii.
The question for you: Will you get on Clubhouse and try it?
Yes is my answer. Why not? That being said, it is not for everyone, and I have stated this, find your tribe, figure out what you like and stick with that. Don’t be afraid to try different rooms and topics.
As I close ths blog, I find myself using Clubhouse more along with Instagram and Instagram’s direct messanging (DM) as opposed to using Facebook 100 percent. I also started to use LinkedIN a little more too as I make new connections. Not sure I found my tribe 100 percent and I have yet to create my open room, for me, I like meeting new people and I really feel that millions of others do as well. So stop wasting time thinking about it, got find a friend and get an invite and see what it actually can do for you. Just remember this last thing I need to warn you about once again….IT’S ADDICTING!
