Here are 12 tips to help you enjoy the new Clubhouse “audio only” platform. Please connect with me on the platform and never hesitate to reach out with questions or, if you’d like help moderating a room. A big “thank you” to behavioral scientist Clarissa Silva for inviting me on to the platform.

Have the mindset of building relationships, networking and adding value. Give, give and then give some more. Don’t promote yourself or pitch your products and services—unless asked to do so.
#2 Complete Your Profile
Take time to complete your profile. The first 3 lines are very important because that’s what someone sees when they click on your profile picture. Make a good initial impression. Also add your Instagram and Twitter accounts to allow for further conversations in your Instagram and Twitter DMs. I use my “Note” app on my laptop, desktop and iPhone to create my profile and then copy/past over into the app. If you use iCloud it will sync with your phone and then you can copy/paste. Or, you can email the bio to your phone and copy/paste that way.
#3 Join Rooms and Listen
Get a feel for the app by simply joining rooms and listening. You’ll quickly figure out how the process works. If you want to see my rooms and how I’m engaging, follow me on Clubhouse (I use my name “mitch Jackson”) and when you click and go to my profile, click the little alert bell. This will let you know when I’m in a room speaking or moderating a room. The CH etiquette is pretty straightforward and takes just a few minutes to figure out.
