Once upon a time there was the first text message. Then came all sorts of chats and finally social media with photos and videos. But that wasn’t enough. This kind of static communication didn’t match human nature and people found it alienating. So one day ClubHouse came along, the voice-only social media.
Here are my top tips for approaching Clubhouse the right way:
- No matter how important it is what you have to share, your voice rules. If you can’t articulate words, if your pacing is boring, or if your volume isn’t loud enough, then people won’t be able to hear you. Avoid spending money on technological gadgets like microphones or mixers, because they can’t work miracles. If your voice is adequate, even a standard quality microphone will work wonders.
- If you want to say something in a room, be prepared. Don’t let your emotions prevail so much that they ruin the good content you want to deliver. Once you are given the word, get straight to the point without introductions or unnecessary explanations because your time may be limited.
- Remember to take note of what is said and may be of interest to you because Clubhouse rooms are temporary by nature and when the session is over, they disappear. Just like when you attend a seminar, you should always keep track of what interests you as a matter of fact.
- Voice-based platforms like Clubhouse and Twitter’s new Spaces feature are well-suited for networking conditions, but remember that people will only judge you by your voice, for better or worse. This is a great opportunity to turn your voice into a tool for success.
- Take this opportunity to make new friends and not just market yourself. It can be much more challenging to improve your social skills and sometimes good friends can turn into your best advertising.
