You’ve joined Clubhouse, but have you joined the club?
Are you incredibly passionate about a particular issue, subject, topic, or whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza? Well, it might be time to start your own club on Clubhouse.
If you’re already familiar with how to get started on Clubhouse, you should know how rooms work. But what about clubs? Think of the distinction between a room and a club this way: a room is a conversation around a topic/interest, and a club is a community built around a topic/interest.
Let’s take a quick look at what a Clubhouse club is and how you can start your own.
What is a Clubhouse club?
Clubhouse clubs are used to create communities within the platform. Clubs can be private for members only or open to the public.
There are four types of membership within Clubhouse clubs:
Try and think of a club like a combination of a Facebook group, a Twitter DM group, and a subreddit.
How to start your own club?
Before you can start your own club on Clubhouse, you should know that priority for new clubs will be given to users “who have already hosted a weekly show three times.”
It’s a great idea to establish yourself as a strong host before you start a club. If you want to increase your chances of having your club approved, try participating in more rooms and existing clubs.
You should also note that there is a limit to how many clubs you can create. There is a little bit of a grey area here, as Clubhouse states a limit of one club pers user; however, the club request form suggests two per user. This is most likely due to Clubhouse still ironing out the kinks, but it’s still good to know that you can’t create endless clubs.
In the very early days of Clubhouse, starting a club was a fairly arduous process. However, a recent update makes the process pretty straightforward. Ready to start a club? Simply follow these steps:
- Open the Clubhouse app
- Head over to the clubs of which you’re already a member
- Tap the plus icon
- Complete your club details and you’re good to go!
