After Facebook, even LinkedIn is launching a “rework” of the Clubhouse feature: the three elements of a voice community marketing strategy

語音社群營銷

In just a few months, Clubhouse, a voice-based social platform, has taken the world by storm. It is reported that Facebook, Spotify and LinkedIn are also taking advantage of the social audio boom and plan to launch a voice communication function similar to Clubhouse, which shows that the competition in the voice social media market will become very fierce. There have been many articles on the Internet that debunk the reasons for Clubhouse’s rapid popularity (e.g. “hunger marketing” techniques, celebrity effect, etc.), so here are three challenges that Clubhouse is facing, as well as a few elements that Marketers should consider when designing a voice social marketing strategy.

Challenge 1: Major social media apps are vying to follow suit and seize the voice social media market

As early as the end of 2020, Twitter partially opened Twitter Spaces (a Clubhouse-like live voice chat room) to iOS users, and in March this year, a small number of Android users were the first to use it. Just like Clubhouse’s “Open Room” feature, Twitter users can open their own voice chat “Spaces” for other users to join. In addition, LinkedIn will allow users to set up multi-person chat rooms to exchange professional opinions, while Spotify plans to launch live audio conversations that will allow creators to interact with audiences, launch new albums and even perform live performances in real time.

Major social media apps have successively launched real-time voice functions comparable to Clubhouse, which has brought great challenges to Clubhouse. Currently, Clubhouse is only available for iOS users (Clubhouse is working on an Android version), but Facebook, Spotify and Twitter all have a large number of loyal users on both Android and iOS. In addition, public figures and famous Creators have amassed a large number of followers on their original Facebook or Twitter accounts. When Facebook and others launch the voice chat room function, it will easily snatch away Clubhouse’s celebrity users, making Clubhouse lose the blessing of celebrities. (Do you remember that the key to Clubhouse’s popularity in the first place was Elon Musk’s “talk” at Clubhouse?)

Challenge 2: Clubhouse’s “invitation-only system” is a double-edged sword

Clubhouse adopts an “invitation system”, allowing users to send a maximum of two invitation codes, which can be described as a “code” is hard to find. The “invitation-only system” creates a sense of mystery and a phenomenon that outstrips demand for Clubhouses, arousing people’s curiosity to find out, which is called “hunger marketing”. The invitation code has become a social symbol for individuals, as if not getting the invitation code is equivalent to their own poor popularity, so that everyone is eager to receive the invitation. However, the “invitation-only system” also limits the growth of Clubhouse users. Celebrities and content creators may consider not being able to reach a large number of users at Clubhouse and turn to platforms like Facebook and Twitter, which have huge user bases.

Challenge 3: Ephemeral content is Clubhouse’s second double-edged sword

Limited-time content is content that appears briefly and is automatically deleted within a limited time (IG Story is an example). Clubhouse does not have a recording function, and all discussions will not be “left behind” after the room is over. Under the psychology of information anxiety, people are afraid of missing any information and spend more time at Clubhouse. However, the fleeting nature of Clubhouse content not only makes it easy for users to miss out on great content, but also makes it difficult for users who join a room in the middle of the room to keep up with the discussion. In addition, Clubhouse content creators can’t build a voice content library in the same way that Youtubers build a video library, and in disguise, they have to invest more resources to keep opening rooms to expand their audience. Conversely, Clubhouse’s competitors such as Spotify and Twitter are intentionally adding a recording feature to the real-time voice exchange, allowing viewers to relive the creator’s content at any time. This is undoubtedly more appealing to both creators and audiences.

These are the challenges that Clubhouse is facing or will face. It’s worth mentioning that Clubhouse’s recent series of moves — including the launch of new features that allow users to provide financial support directly to creators, the development of an Android version of Clubhouse, and so on — indicate that Clubhouse is trying to retain creators and users and stay competitive.

Voice Community Marketing Strategy: 3 Elements to Consider for Marketers

1. Knowledge content can help a brand’s content marketing strategy

The “room” theme on Clubhouse is mainly knowledgeable, and many of the presenters and speakers are experts in their field. When designing a content marketing strategy, brands may consider inviting celebrities and experts to “talk” together to produce valuable content to build brand image. However, it’s important to note that Clubhouse content is limited-time, and your audience can only enter one room at a time, so it’s important to have a catchy room name, a celebrity guest, and a theme that is relevant to your audience’s concerns.

2. The cost of “opening a house” is low, but the return may not be high

Compared to making videos, placing ads on Facebook, etc., the cost of “opening a room” at Clubhouse is relatively low (of course, inviting KOLs or experts and preparing in advance will cost a lot of money). However, brands are currently unable to advertise their activities at Clubhouse, and it is very difficult to reach a large audience through Clubhouse alone. The level of “room” traffic depends on factors such as brand awareness, whether it is promoted through other channels (social media, email, etc.), and whether it can invite popular KOLs to participate. In addition, Clubhouse does not currently provide a recording function for brands to distribute recorded Clubhouse content on other platforms, and if the number of participants in the event is not satisfactory, it will be in vain.

3. Direct the “room” participants to other platforms to switch

Attracting a large audience by inviting celebrities to make noise is only the first step. After the “room” is over, whether you can direct guests to your social media platform and official website, and even convert them into customers. Clubhouse doesn’t allow you to insert a Call-To-Action button to direct listeners to other online platforms like Facebook posts do. To do this, you can encourage your audience to dig up more information on your brand’s social media and website during and at the end of your Clubhouse event. Also, while Clubhouse doesn’t have a recording feature, you can convert discussions into blogs, social media posts, and emails for follow-up promotion.

Social media apps are developing voice communication platforms and even adding other features (such as voice recording) to real-time voice communication. Clubhouse will continue to optimize and add new features in the face of strong competitors. It is still unknown what voice social media will look like in the future and what it will do. We will continue to update you with the latest information on voice social media.

SEO 方法要即時更新 一味守舊只能被淘汰

說到seo,你腦海中蹦出來的第一個詞是什麼?是“發外鏈”亦或者“更新文章”?不管你是菜鳥還是行業高手,走上seo這條道路都要經歷發外鏈和寫文章,儘管現在的你很鄙視發外鏈,但以前的你的確在孜孜不倦的做這件事。當然,現在的seo不局限於這兩者,方法更多。之所以發生這樣的變化,根本原因是人變了。人變了所以需求變了,需求變了搜尋引擎也變了,它一直都在迎合搜索者的需求,它倒是沒變。 Seo方法隨著需求的改變有兩層意思。一是隨著時間的改變而改變。舉個列子,在2012年一個企業站只需要每天更新兩篇偽原創文章,發幾條帶連接的帖子,要不了三個月它的關鍵字就能上百度首頁。現在聽起來不可思議,但它確實如此。而現如今呢,哪怕你每天更新五篇原創文章,它都不可能達到那樣的效果。很顯然,隨著時間的改變,人們的需求變了,搜尋引擎的機制也變了。 針對某一個網站而言,它的每個階段所用的seo方法也不一樣。當網站上線初期,它特別簡單,就像一張白紙,隨你怎麼畫。但同時又特別脆弱,經不起折騰,這個時候你只能循序漸進的更新新的不一樣的東西才能吸引程序。

在人人看重數碼化的時代,為何非政府機構往往停滯不前?

今時今日,愈來愈多商業機構意識到數碼化的重要性,明白如果遵從舊有的市場營銷策略,不管是否處於市場領導者位置,也遲早會令營利逐步萎縮,甚至會被市場淘汰。可是,反而不少非政府機構(non-governmental organization,NGO)卻在數碼化方面多半停滯不前。 相比一般的商業機構,不少非政府機構往往尚未建立與時並進的營銷思維,而且對於網上營銷和數碼化的成效抱有懷疑態度。例如他們仍保持舊時代的線下宣傳思維,覺得只定期上載活動照、活動詳情,已經達致理想成效,而且對於撥出部分預算用作社交平台的宣傳費,他們總是不多考慮,因為他們不夠清楚廣告的回報和成效,擔心這是「燒錢」的行為。 這很大程度因為他們會基於其發展背景和規模,形象偏向保守,內部的持分者未必敢於接受和嘗試各種日新月異的數碼平台和嶄新的營銷策略,那麼就算在其他方面均完全配合到,亦無法有效跟上數碼化的步伐。 即使部分的非政府機構有緊貼市場的營銷思維,但另一個阻止他們數碼化的障礙,就是資源不足的問題。 一般而言,非政府機構的營運資金來源源於捐款及公帑,形成在沒有足夠資源的情況下,他們必須作出取捨。然而,很多時候開發數碼平台,甚至找尋市場推廣及公關?中介公司專業協作,通常需要不少支出。最終就算在資源緊拙的情況下,只能把數碼營銷放於較次要的位置。 可是,其實就算對非政府機構來說,數碼化還是非常重要。因為在數碼化的推波助瀾下,他們能更有效找出目標群眾,成為業務發展的增長,而且亦有助這些機構提供更好更貼近市場需要的服務,形成雙贏局面。 然而,當面對這種「內憂外患」的局面,非政府機構該如何自處,有效發展數碼化? 首先,找出真正懂得網絡營銷及策略管理的人管理社交平台。很多時候,企業管理層多半將機構的網絡營銷重任給予前線同事,以為「有接觸社交平台=掌握如何發展其社交平台」。事實上,要成功透過數碼化發展機構,背後卻需要很多專業分析和技術。其次,機構持分者需放寬部分權力給予新世代營銷的專業人士,一起發展及制訂數碼策略。

博客重在精養而不是散養

你可能註冊了一二十個博客,經過一段時間卻發現沒有一個博客有知名度甚至沒有流量,這是件很悲哀的事情。創建博客是為了什麼?答案是流量和人氣。如果你的博客沒有這些,那你是失敗的。那麼,怎樣創建博客呢,怎樣養它才能發揮到最大價值呢?記住精養而不是散養,體現以下三個關鍵點。 關鍵點一:博客平臺流量大 一般小的博客平臺建議放棄,本身它的總流量就不高,你能指望它帶來多少流量給你一個個體呢。所以,建議在選擇博客平臺時先查看流量和知名度,兩者都具備者優先考慮。 關鍵點二:博客主題的選擇 在創建博客時,你得給你的博客合理安排主題。可以結合你的產品方向或者興趣愛好,也可以是時事熱點。總之,一定要給你的博客定一個主題,它就是你以後寫作的方向。 關鍵點三:堅持更新原創文章 我們一直在強調“精養”,所謂精養就是要用心。儘量做好定期定時更新原創文章,不但給讀者留下好印象,也讓搜尋引擎養成好習慣,定期來爬你的文章。如此,你還怕你的博客優化不上去嗎?!

Facebook等科技巨頭,是否監控着我們的生活?

有沒有想過為何Facebook對用戶習慣如此瞭如指掌?因為除了通過追蹤用戶在Facebook上點擊頁面或廣告的行為,這科技巨頭似乎購買了不少用戶的敏感數據,包括用戶家庭收入、頻繁光顧的餐廳類型,甚至是錢包中有多少張信用卡。 美國獨立新聞機構的報告中指出,從去年起Facebook對外大量收集用戶的機密資料,當中包括「個人可投資資產1-24,999美元」、「家庭總收入介乎10萬到12.5萬美元」等等。報告亦道出,Facebook購買用戶線下活動的資料,可能比我們想像的更多。 雖然Facebook手握大量數據,看似不足為患,很多人對此並不介意,但事實上這象徵其監控能力十分強大,甚至比政府強大。例如在2015年,港府就曾向 Facebook索取資料70多次,協助處理各類刑事案件。 這反映出Facebook可直接或間接監控我們的生活,暗藏敏感數據被使用的隱憂。 若他們運用手上的數據,並且拼湊從第三方購入的數據一起分析,便能精準掌握我們的日常生活,其力量往往大得令人意想不到。而且除了Facebook,別忘記谷歌、蘋果、微軟及亞馬遜等科技領導者也同樣擁有這種龐大的力量。 今時今日,網絡監控已是全球焦點之一,數據保安的警號已在世界各地響起。我們在享用大數據帶來的便利時,亦要關注個人的私隱保障,以及企業怎樣收集和運用數據,避免個人資料在不知情的情況下被使用。
