The famous voice-based social media application, Clubhouse announced its first creators program. Clubhouse Creator First will encourage striving hosts and creators on the application to increase their audiences, connect with brands, and possibly most importantly, monetize their shows.
During the application’s weekly town hall session, co-founder Paul Davison stated that the company would support the selected creators by granting them facilities, providing support in developing concepts, and pairing them with suitable brands for sponsorship possibilities. Davison also stated that Clubhouse would assure that those who are selected for the program are equipped with at least $5000 in guaranteed monthly income.
The announcement was made through a tweet, “Today’s Town Hall Updates: We are launching our first creator accelerator program, Clubhouse Creator First. We are looking to support and equip 20 creators w/ resources they need to bring their ideas and creativity to life. Details and application here: http://creatorfirst.joinclubhouse.com.”
The application form for the program requires the creators to provide information on their current program reach, an inclination about the show they would like to develop, as well a description of the tools that they consider would be most useful to support their platform growth.
Furthermore, the Creator First accelerator program, Clubhouse has also published a series of updates to enhance the app, including:
- Link sharing – Users can now share a link to their profile or club
- Language filtering- Clubhouse has improved its Rooms recommendations based on the language/s you commonly tune into
- Invite via phone number – Users can now invite others by manually entering their phone number
