How do you create rooms in the Clubhouse app and manage them professionally?

 


The clubhouse has been a huge success in recent days, doubling the number of downloads in just two weeks, surpassing 8 million downloads globally, although a subscription is still only invited.

According to App Annie's estimates, Clubhouse has grown from more than 3.5 million downloads globally as of February 1, 2021, to 8.1 million by February 16, 2021. This sharp growth is due to the emergence of many prominent guests, such as Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Oprah Winfrey, and many more.

Meanwhile, Clubhouse did not officially share the total number of downloads or registered users, but CEO Paul Davison revealed during a Clubhouse session in January that the app now has 2 million active users per week.

It should be noted that clubhouse was launched about a year ago, but registration is still based on invitations, as subscription requires a special invitation from those who have already subscribed, in addition to being available to users of the system (iOS) only, as there is no version for Android users yet.

Clubhouse lets you create and join rooms for voice discussions with others on different topics, where there are no photos, videos, or even text — voice only — and you can join and leave the chat at any time.

To find out all the details about the Clubhouse app and how to subscribe to it, you can see an article: "What's clubhouse and what's the secret to spreading it now?"

Today we will review how to create clubhouse rooms, add topics, and how to manage the room professionally:

First, how to schedule a room in the Clubhouse app:


You can start a room in the Clubhouse app in two ways: first: schedule the room, and the second: create the room and start the discussion immediately. But there are many advantages to you when scheduling a room:

  • You'll get a link to the room that you can easily share with others.
  • Your followers will be notified of the room appointment through notifications.
  • You can add a detailed description of the topic you're discussing in the room.


To schedule a room creation you can follow the following steps:


  • Go to the Clubhouse app on your phone.
  • Press the calendar icon at the top of the screen, then press the calendar icon with the (+) mark in the top right corner.

 

  • Next, you'll see a New Event screen where you can schedule a discussion of the topic in the room.
  • Start by typing the name (event) — the name of the topic you're going to discuss in the room — that can be up to 60 characters.
  • You also have the option to add a co-host to the room. The co-host will be able to delete, modify and remove people from the room, so be careful who you assign to the role.
  • Select the day and time of the event, and if you belong to a club in the app, you have the option to host the club as well.
  • The last step is to add a description of the event, the Clubhouse app gives you up to 200 characters to describe your event so that followers can get details if you want to.
  • After you've filled out the event details, click on the Publish option in the upper right corner.
  • Your scheduled event will then appear at the bottom of the screen, click the Share option if you want to send it to other people.
  • You can also post a tweet on Twitter — if you sign up for the app via your Twitter account — or copy the link or add it to your calendar.

  • After you schedule your event, you can edit it at any time or delete it.
  • To find your event, just click on the calendar icon at the top of the screen, then tap the drop-down menu next to the Upcoming for You menu at the top of the screen, then choose My Events, and you'll see all the events you've scheduled.

When you're ready to start the room, open the Clubhouse app a few minutes in advance, then click on the Start Room option.

Secondly, how to create a room and start the discussion immediately:


  • Go to the Clubhouse app on your phone.
  • Click on the Create a Room option, a green box that appears at the bottom of the app's homepage.
  • You will then be asked to choose from three types of rooms: Open, Social, or Closed. First, open room: This room will be open to everyone in the app, where anyone can participate. Second, Social Room: This room will be for a list of followers only, where it will show people in your follower list, and they can join it as soon as it appears to them on the home page. Third, the closed room: this room will be limited to the people you invite-only.
  • If you choose Closed Room, you'll see the Choose People option to add participants;
  • After choosing the type of room that suits you, click on the Add a Topic option that appears in the upper right corner, and type the title you want. The title is limited to 60 characters, keeping in mind that you won't be able to edit it after you start.
  • Click on the Let's Go option.


 

  • Note: Keep in mind that you can start a private room and make it public at any time by clicking the Open It Up button at the bottom of the screen.

Whether you're starting a closed, social, or open room, it's easy to invite people to the room. Just press the combination tag at the bottom of the screen and find the people you want to invite.

When someone comes to the room, you'll see a small notification at the top of the screen, and it'll automatically become the audience and the sound is inactive, but they can only get the chance to talk when they raise their hand asking you to talk, or when you invite them to discuss.
Third, how to manage the room:

When you format a room at the clubhouse, the first thing to do is to set the rules of the room. Know yourself and the theme of the room and the rules that everyone should follow. Here are some tips you can use to control the dialogue, sound management and keep the discussion going:

1- Reset your room periodically:


People will join and leave the room constantly, but if you want to know how many people are currently in the room, press (All Rooms) at the top of the screen, and in the bottom left corner you will see your photo as a room supervisor and the image of the co-host, as well as the number of people in the room.


2- Add another admin in the room:  


Keep in mind adding at least one other admin to your room, because if you have to stay away to make a phone call and you're the only supervisor, the room will end and you won't be able to reach it again. But if you have another supervisor in the room and need to leave, the room will continue until you return.

To add another moderator, all you have to do is click on the image of the person discussing you in the room and choose (make it a moderator) Make a Moderator.



3- Sound management:


People raise their hands during the session for various reasons, if you see a message that someone has asked to be a speaker in the room, you can invite them to the theater or reject the message or do nothing, in which case the message will disappear.

If a number appears on the hand icon at the bottom of the screen, it indicates that someone is in the queue. Click on the raised hand icon to see who wants to talk. You can click on the account image to see who he is and what he is doing to determine whether you will agree to enter the discussion or not.
