"How To Use Clubhouse To Expand Your Influence"
Clubhouse launched in April 2020 as a novel social networking app based on audio-only conversation. The app hit at the perfect moment as the pandemic limited face-to-face interaction and left the world hungry for more connection. Since then, Clubhouse has taken the world by storm with more than 10 million weekly active users today.

Coming from a background in radio, I’m all aboard the Clubhouse train. It’s like a modern version of talk radio where listeners can call in (known as “raising your hand” on the app) to share thoughts, advice, challenges, etc. It provides the deeper sense of connection that everyone seems to be looking for right now.

Entrepreneurs, in particular, have a lot to gain from the app while it’s still fresh but not yet completely saturated with users.

The following strategies can help you foster authentic connections and uncover valuable networking opportunities:
