How To Start And Moderate A Clubhouse Room
Clubhouse is a social media app that allows you to connect with others over shared interests or topics of discussion. Through these conversations with others, you can expand your mind and beliefs as you engage with others with a variety of world views. The app can help you draw attention and engagement, increasing your visibility and connections. Clubhouse can be used to grow your business or platform as an influencer. By becoming a moderator you can bring more attention to your profile, while also drawing attention to relevant ideas. Here’s a guide on how to start and moderate a Clubhouse room.
1. Schedule your room
There are two ways to start a Clubhouse room. You can either schedule a room or make one spontaneously.
There are various advantages to scheduling a room. These include:
- Recieving a link to share with followers on other platforms
- Notifying your followers on Clubhouse
- The ability to write a description for the room
In order to schedule a room, open Clubhouse and press the calendar icon at the top of the screen. Then press the calendar icon with a plus sign on it. After you’ll see the “New Event” screen where you can schedule your Clubhouse room.
Give the room a name, date, and time. You can even add a co-host if desired. Then add a description to allow users to gain insight into what the discussion will be about. Then press publish and you’re all set.
2. Layout rules
One of the first things you want to do in your Clubhouse room is to outline the room and the rules. This allows users to understand the expectations of the room.
You’ll want to:
- Introduce yourself
- Specify the topic of the room
- Intended rules
Some rules may be using the raise hand feature.
3. Occasionaly reset
As time goes on, the users active in your Clubhouse room will change. Some members will come and go, so giving a refresher on what your room is about can be helpful.
It may be helpful to reintroduce yourself, the objective, and how to participate. Depending on the flow of the room you may want to do a reset every 10 to 15 minutes, so new users coming in can jump into the conversation.
4. Stay on topic
With so many voices in a Clubhouse room, the conversation can easily be sidetracked. As a moderator, it’s your job to keep the discussion on topic.
There are various strategies you can use to highlight specific, such as assigning users to help answer questions they have the background to answer.
When people bring up relevant information and the conversation appears to be going down a rabbit hole, don’t be afraid to refocus the room. You can thank the user, but remind the room to get back to the topic at hand.
Sometimes some users may ramble and fill the discussion with endless rambling that do not add value to the conversation.
Sometimes you can see a confetti icon next to these users, which means they are new to the platform. With these users, you may want to be more lenient since they likely do not understand how Clubhouse is supposed to work yet.
If not, you can thank the users and tell members they can message them with follow-up questions, but remind them of the topic at hand. Allow the user to make a final comment before you put them back in the audience.
Start a room now!
Clubhouse is a great platform to discuss ideas with others that you may not normally hear from. Creating a Clubhouse room is a great way to bring up topics you are interested in, and bring attention to your account. While moderating a room may seem confusing, following this guide can simplify the process. Why not start a room now to engage with others and gain new perspectives?
