As soon as you open up the Clubhouse app, you’ll enter a hallway. This is the area that shows users what the active rooms are. Plus, you’ll see the events that are going to take place as well as the plus sign followed by the “Start a room” ability.
Once you enter the room that you choose, you’ll hear the conversation taking place and you’ll automatically part of the audience. If you decide you want to speak up, you’ll have to choose to raise your hand.
It’s up to the room creator or moderator to decide if you get to speak on the stage. You don’t have to worry about everyone talking over each other because Clubhouse doesn’t give this option.
The person who runs the room can mute or boot the speaker. In the room, you’ll be able to identify who the moderator is as well as who the speakers are. You’ll see this information at the top.
The top is known as the stage in each individual room. Anyone who’s being recognized as a speaker is on the stage. You’ll be able to see their profile photo as well as who they are.
There will be an icon on the speaker’s photo if they’re currently muted. You’ll also be able to see who the moderator is. What you want to be careful about is that you know what’s going on in the room’s conversation.
If the conversation is about one topic, and you get accepted on stage to speak and find you’re on a completely different track, you’ll get muted or booted. So take some time to familiarize yourself with the topic and what’s being said so that you not only know, but that also you’re not rehashing what’s already been said.
Be humble. Realize that there may be others in the room who know more than you. Talk about what you know or have experienced when you’re on stage, rather than sharing information with no facts to back it up.
If you’re speaking spontaneously about your niche topic, you can talk about the aspects you love about it, as well as what you don’t. You can take about common mistakes or current issues that need addressing within the niche or within your business and ask for advice – or give some.
You can explain how a problem cropped up and how you solved it. Or address their problems. Paying attention to the conversation prior to speaking on stage lets you find out where the audience is struggling. You’ll be able to identify their pain or problem, and by talking about solutions, the audience will find value in what you say.
