Have you heard people around you and on social media platforms talk about Clubhouse App? Are you wondering why people are talking about this social platform and what it could mean for you?
In a very short period ClubHouse has become so much popular that many brands are starting to use the platform to share their thoughts and journey.
It’s not too often that a new social media platform launches, but when it does, early adopters can benefit from it due to the higher organic reach given by platform algorithms in general.
The audio-based social network platform had over nine million monthly downloads in a month.
More Organic reach would help in increasing usage of the platform.
Clubhouse, an invitation-only audio-chat launched on the iPhone app store during the year 2020 that it is not yet too saturated. And considering that people need a personal invite to join if you can get one, now is the time to start an account and start using the app. Later in May 2021, Clubhouse was launched in the Google Play Store for Android. Particularly in India within a month the app became viral. Might be due to lockdown or time to virtually network for a purpose to achieve goals.
Let’s look at the ways people are utilizing Clubhouse to amplify their message, network, create brand awareness, and increase reach by getting a target audience as followers to their other social media platform.
