I can’t believe it’s already been FOUR weeks since I dove into learning, testing, and experiencing all the things that are Clubhouse! This new year is flying by so fast! Is it for you too?
The reason why I’m going all-in to test out this brand new Audio-Only social media app while it’s still in the VERY early BETA stages is that I see MASSIVE opportunity and expansion for business owners like you and me!
I’m not a “bandwagon” joiner at all! I’m not on TikTok, I didn’t stay on Snapchat for long and thankfully, never wasted my time on Vine.
I’ve been very careful and strategic about where I spend my limited time for audience and brand growing always focusing on the LONG GAME to create a business that thrives year over year over year.
That’s why I’m so crazy excited about Clubhouse and sharing all that I’m learning as soon as I test it out because I don’t want you to miss out on building in the very early stages!
I LOVE being your Clubhouse guinea pig and sharing with you in real-time, one week at a time how I’m growing my presence, expand my brand and show up with massive value to serve!
In Part 3 of this series, I’m talking all about how to be a GREAT host and moderate a room as well as drive people to it with great topic titles, when to schedule & so much more!

What I Recommend Doing When Hosting Your First Room
When you are hosting a room, what I recommend doing is not doing it alone. Because there is a lot going on behind-the-scenes:
- Have at least one other person there to help navigate!
- Stipulate how long you’re going to stay together!
- Create a really juicy room title!
- Make sure to schedule it out 24-48 hours in advance!
When you don’t do it alone everyone can have different roles which will help you create the best experience for the people that not only come into our rooms on Clubhouse, but we want them to stay. Think WIIFT – What’s In It For Them?!
What to Do When You’re Ready to Start Your Room
When you’re ready to go, start the room, and from the gecko set the tone, vibe, and expectation for your room. How you’re going to do that is with a quick intro of yourself and your guest, co-host, or moderator.
Then you’re going to set the expectation for what the topic is and how you’re going to operate the room:
- Set the tone in the beginning, middle, and sometimes a third time towards the end.
- Let them know you’re going to give them the best tips for whatever topic that room is.
- And, then tell them you’re going to open it up for Q&A at the end.
When you have huge rooms, you want to help as many people as you can:
- You can invite people who have a question to raise their hand.
- When you invite them on the stage, you can tell them to give you their 30 sec or less bio.
- Then let them know to go straight to their question and begin their question with, “My question is…”

What is a PTR and When To Use It
Something that you might hear as far as lingo on Clubhouse is “PTR” or Pull to Refresh. People are going in and out of the room all the time, so the PTR resets the room and puts people in the correct order in which they came into the room.
If your room is going to be a minimum of an hour, you’re going to do it periodically and consistently about every 30 minutes. This gives you an opportunity to reiterate what the topic is and the expectation of the room.
This is what you can do to create this very comfortable and inviting room that people are going to want to raise their hands and ask questions in! That way you don’t create one of those cringe-worthy rooms that people want to “leave quietly” from.
With Grit & Grace, xo!
