TLDR: a personal brand can take your business to the next level.
Clubhouse – the latest hot shop platform – is one of the best places to leverage your personal brand. But HOW?
A personal brand is essential because people buy from people they trust. If you are able to build your reputation and thought leadership by giving value through your live conversations, your audience will seek your help and eventually become your customers.
Let me be honest with you, I have only been on Clubhouse for 6-7 weeks. Through this time, I’ve hosted several live conversations and have come up with these steps to start building your personal brand on the platform:
To gain some exposure and connect with other speakers, join other rooms and participate in live conversations by adding your personal experience and value.
Ideally, you want to find conversations that you are an expert in and rooms that have around 50-300 users listening. Be sure to raise your hand, as you’ll have an opportunity to be brought on stage to introduce yourself and provide insights. This gives you a chance to connect with the speakers and gain followers to your profile.
Once you are able to gain a following and build a relationship with other users, aim to partner with them and host rooms together. Identify a topic that speaks to your expertise and targets your ideal client. This can be an issue or problem they face or answers to common questions.
There are plenty of different live conversation formats to use. Some common ones I find are:
Consistency is key. Regularly host a room at a set time everyday or the same day every week. Make it an ongoing series so your audience can always expect and look forward to the next one.
Always proactively suggest to connect with your audience outside of the app and take the conversation forward if they need further assistance. Redirect people to connect with you on other platforms to continue building those relationships.
I experienced this first hand. With Clubhouse being a hot commodity platform, there will be users who disrupt the rooms you host. In one of the rooms I hosted, I had two spammers come on stage and they cursed and made racist comments. I made the rookie mistake of not checking their profiles before allowing them to speak. Be sure to check profiles before inviting or allowing someone on stage.
Since Clubhouse is not designed for 1:1 direct conversations with your potential clients, I redirect my followers to connect with me on LinkedIn.
Here are few ways I go about this:
Clubhouse is a great platform for building awareness and distributing your expert knowledge to an audience that already has a strong intent to learn more about your subject matter.
By sharing tips, advice, and answering their questions, you are able to build strong trust and relationships with them. Once you establish that connection, you’re more likely able to take that potential lead and convert!
By leveraging both of these platforms, I have been able to generate over 10 meetings and I’m in the middle of closing some of them.
I have witnessed the power and potential when you link social media platforms like Clubhouse and LinkedIn to build your network and gain leads.
Now it’s your turn to implement these steps.
