Here are 12 tips to help you enjoy the new Clubhouse “audio only” platform. Please connect with me on the platform and never hesitate to reach out with questions or, if you’d like help moderating a room. A big “thank you” to behavioral scientist Clarissa Silva for inviting me on to the platform.
Have the mindset of building relationships, networking and adding value. Give, give and then give some more. Don’t promote yourself or pitch your products and services—unless asked to do so.
#2 Complete Your Profile
Take time to complete your profile. The first 3 lines are very important because that’s what someone sees when they click on your profile picture. Make a good initial impression. Also add your Instagram and Twitter accounts to allow for further conversations in your Instagram and Twitter DMs. I use my “Note” app on my laptop, desktop and iPhone to create my profile and then copy/past over into the app. If you use iCloud it will sync with your phone and then you can copy/paste. Or, you can email the bio to your phone and copy/paste that way.
#3 Join Rooms and Listen
Get a feel for the app by simply joining rooms and listening. You’ll quickly figure out how the process works. If you want to see my rooms and how I’m engaging, follow me on Clubhouse (I use my name “mitch Jackson”) and when you click and go to my profile, click the little alert bell. This will let you know when I’m in a room speaking or moderating a room. The CH etiquette is pretty straightforward and takes just a few minutes to figure out.
Yes, I’m a big fan of the Clubhouse, the relatively new audio only platform. During my Thursday afternoon interview on Chris Trappe’s Amazon Live show, I share exactly why I’m “all in” on the platform and, specific tips to help you maximize your time on the app. Enjoy! (click here)
I’m chatting with Matt Barnett, CEO of Bonjoro, an Australian based company that allows you to boost customer engagement with perfectly timed personal videos. Whatever the touchpoint, Bonjoros simple platform and powerful integrations make it easy to convert your customers with video.
Watch us live, meet Matt, and bring your questions. We go live at 3pm ET on all my major platforms.
From idea to execution, Kate chats with Mitch about her entrepreneurial journey and how she helped create Lately.ai, a cloud-based service that automatically turns blogs, online articles, newsletters, videos and podcasts into dozens of amazing social media posts.
Truth be told, most business/tax lawyers and accountants would cringe while listening to this conversation. I didn’t. I get it.
Mr. Beast is a creator. He’s doing what he loves to do and there’s nothing wrong with that. He’s pulling in millions of dollars a month from YouTube and the dude is super generous because he’s also giving away millions of dollars in cash and gifts each year on his YouTube channel.
In fact, it’s my understanding Mr. Beast wants to use his wealth to build hundreds of homeless shelters/food banks and give away all the money. That is so cool. Seriously, check out this content– pretty damn impressive and entertaining.
In any case, earlier today on my run I started to think about Mr. Beast and shot this video with my GoPro9. There are so many things that literally jump out at me that he can/should look at, and probably do, that will not interfere with the creative side of his content but will reduce state and federal incomes taxes and maximize the protection of his personal assets (bank account, house, favorite dog) from his business liabilities.
Doing so will allow him to create MORE wealth to donate or give away (BTW, there’s a right and wrong way to do this under the tax code). Hey, when you’re a trial lawyer with 34 years of experience, this is just how your brain works. Sorry not sorry. I’ve even discussed a few of these things over the years right here at my blog. Simply use the search bar for answers.
Hey Mr. Beast, if you haven’t done so already, surround yourself with a good business/tax attorney and CPA. Not only will you protect your wealth and business interests, you’ll also have more options than you ever thought possible and MORE money to give away to the homeless shelters and food banks because you didn’t pay as much in state and federal income taxes. And for the record, I have no problem paying taxes but I personally do wish our governments didn’t waste so much of our money. Maybe that’ll be a topic for another video in the future 😉
***** Update- after I shot this video I learned that Jimmy’s multimedia talent management company is “Night Media” which is a creative outpost for the largest creators on the internet. His manger is Reed Duchscher, who’s an impressive dude, so I’m sure Mr. Beast is in good hands and all this stuff is being covered. The idea behind this post is to give creators something to think about and hopefully get them to move in the right direction. You can connect with Night Media here.
OK. That’s it for now. Everyone please hang in there. I know we’re in tough times. I get that. But, I think it’s important that we all continue to try to move forward, lift each other up, and make each day our masterpiece.
Mitch has embraced recorded and live video for more than a decade. He believes that other than providing an exemplary client experience, there’s no better way to connect with people, build trust, and build a professional brand.
