What is Clubhouse?
Clubhouse is a new, invite-only, social media platform that’s disrupting social media as we’ve known it. It’s an audio app that can best be described as interactive, fully immersive, talk-back radio on a global scale.
It’s a breath of fresh air from the burden of creating beautiful looking, visually driven, time consuming, curated and designed content like other social media platforms. Clubhouse is ephemeral content – instant, live and fleeting. It’s fully voice-based with no written comments or messages involved. It’s where you can start a conversation about anything via creating a room wherever you are, whenever you like. Or contribute to a conversation when inspiration strikes or sit back and listen passively in the audience.
Clubhouse is giving all voices a platform to be heard and bridges the gap between big business and small along with who can be seen as the custodian of valuable experience and knowledge to share.
This is Why Clubhouse is a Powerful PR Tool
PR is what helps others make a decision about you. PR is reputation management. PR is what others think about you and your business when you’re not in the room. PR shapes message and perception. PR is ‘the ‘Jack’ and master of ALL communications-led trades. PR is the mouth-piece of your business. PR adds a beating heart to a brand. PR is like a good friend cheering you on forever and all eternity. PR is what builds awareness and brand impact. PR is anything that generates organic engagement. PR is getting what you’ve got into the hearts and minds of people who need it most.
And so Clubhouse is one of the most powerful PR tactics for you and your business this year and for as long as it shall last. Because it allows you to connect directly with your audience, build your network and fast-track collaboration opportunities in a meaningful and compelling way.
