In the dark ages of the pandemic, Clubhouse founded a “social audio” empire. While many others attempt to take the throne, none have captured its prominence. Why? Clubhouse has powerful speakers hosting and moderating rooms. These queens and kings hold court to talk about topics of entrepreneurship, love, and the kingdom’s bitcoin.
Clubhouse was founded in 2020 as an iOS app for iPhone. Like the first social networks before it, you needed proof to create a social profile on it. (Thank you @string of characters!) With the COVID-19 lockdown in full effect, it filled a hole in hearts for lecture-style presentations. Now, in the serious second year, millions of people are tuning in for an unrefined audio experience more chaotic than a podcast.
I’ve spent the past few months lurking on Clubhouse to find out who’s driving this new social media platform. The following voices were cohesive and powerful that set the tone for social audio today.
The company wanted her to be a secretary, but she had a vocation for the stage. The Toronto-based actress and singer found her voice hosting the Clubhouse venues. She talks about topics like motivation, confidence in front of the camera, and media literacy in general. His Thursday room ‘How to get Publicity’ (You get what you want :P.), is where it teaches you how to get press and your projects deserve it.
Kris Orticello serves its online community with patience and kindness. She reminds thousands of listeners daily that getting established in her field is a marathon, not a sprint. That said, she herself is one of the most consistent voices in Clubhouse who speaks daily.
Becca Tepper-Teruel conquered content creation. She’s an audio-social socialite with a TikTok paparazzi. She and her father Robert Tepper create daytime feel-good videos. Then at night, she huddled next to the Clubhouse mic with whispers of encouragement to her followers.
You see, no one is on social media to be a thousand-aire. Becca and her turn or die BFF Dani Klass collaborate on Clubhouse to help influencers become follower millionaires. Becca’s approach is simple. Respond to the audience. How many seconds should a TikTok last? What do the latest Instagram changes mean to me? She has a cheat sheet.
Becca’s rooms hold keys to unlock social media algorithms. If she doesn’t have a certain key, she will pick the lock. Its community crowdsources their posting experiences and finds a way to skip the queue. It’s also worth mentioning that she weaves spells on the audience by designing custom Instagram filters.
Ashley McCurdy did the math one day. She could pay a lease or stay on a beach. So she downplayed her life in a carry-on suitcase and became a digital nomad. In no time, Ashley has become one of the best travel hackers in the world. She’s a Marriott Master who knows how to live in style. During this Great Resignation, it teaches you to travel light and hit the road.
Unlike the others on this list, Ashley’s rooms go late at night. For her, it’s early morning on a Thai beach. At least I think she’s still in Thailand. I’m not so sure. She quickly becomes a modern-day Carmen Sandiego. Listen to Ashley’s discussions before asking, “Where in the world is she?” There is a place where we will know she will be; She is hosting a Clubhouse Cruise for Digital Nomads in March 2023.
You can watch his recaps like Looking for a Traveler on YouTube.
Bobby del Rio is a complicated character who would take at least six seasons and a movie to tell his life story. His long acting career was covered extensively when magazines ruled grocery store shelves, but now resides in library archives preserved for future generations. (If anyone can get me a photo of young Bobby del Rio, I would.) It’s not Bobby’s past that we’re here to talk about.
Clubhouse has opened up a world of connection for actors, filmmakers, and writers. As Bobby said, “The great thing about being an actor is that you can start at any age.” This age for many is the present. Bobby found new opportunities with producers often featuring him live in bedrooms. He helps others with lots of industry tips no matter where you are. (It’s a good time to say, please don’t send him your script.)
As a rockstar moderator, he is the enforcer for high-level rooms. He wields the weapons to bounce off unruly members of the public and often protects the other pieces from people on this list. However, his charm is found in select rooms where he talks about the challenges of growing as an individual.
If you’re looking to network in film and TV, get together and listen Bobby del Rio.
Hayley Hobson lost all of his social media accounts right before a big launch. This raised the old question: does anyone care when you’re not internet famous anymore? For Hayley, the answer was yes. He cares about the community. Her audience took action and helped her get her accounts back by petitioning the social media giants.
Hayley has a web-three-point-I-do-what-I-want attitude. She is not distracted by negative comments. She is a marketing mindfulness monk. Her rooms focus on the light side of self-improvement. “Listen to the heart, hold their hand and show people how to speak with the soul.”
If you’re looking for habit hacking, join Hayley Hobson’s Chambers. Guests and topics focus on the slight improvements in moving mountains in your personal life. Each presentation is a mini-lecture on balancing the emotions of modern life. Simple hacks help keep audiences away from burnout and be productive-AF.
