Listen as Jen and Morgan share how they view Clubhouse, the rooms and clubs inside, and more. They also compare Clubhouse to other platforms. And they share how Clubhouse can be used in the event industry to grow businesses. Since there is no DM feature on Clubhouse, you must link it to your Instagram account to get the full benefits of the platform.
Andy, Jen, and Morgan discuss how important your profile on Clubhouse is and share some tips on the best way to create it to reach the most people. A great tip is to use the same profile picture in Clubhouse that you use on Instagram, so when someone clicks over, they can see that they are in the right place.
Jen and Morgan both talk about what they see happening in the future with Clubhouse and invite you to contact them if you would like to find out more about it. They both believe you should get in now, reserve your username, and check out the rooms and clubs that might interest you.
