Growing Clubhouse Invites to $3000 using Zapier Integration

Felix Josemon @felixjosemon

So a few days back after seeing a lot of folks getting scammed on the Internet & Clubhouse App invites being sold for $1000+ per invite on eBay, I decided to start a pay-it-forward Clubhouse Invite train.

How does it work?

As we get CLUBHOUSE invites, we share with other supporters on invite chain. Simple.

I posted about this on Reddit and Medium:

It blew off beyond my wildest imagination! It hit $3000 in a matter of days and growing unlike anything while writing this. I had just ~150 supporters on buymeacoffee page when started and now it's over 350+

Over 200+ new Clubhouse members joined by this train! All this with just a WhatsApp group (to share invites with one another), buymeacoffee (to add to the train), and a Google Sheet (Daily track of the train)!

I also use Zapier Auto-Tweet integration so that every time someone buy me a few cups of coffee ( , a tweet is posted from my Twitter handle. The tweet has keyword "Clubhouse Invite" which on peak hours has 2000+ tweets!

Top 5 Acquisition channels by Revenue:
Twitter $1,160
Medium $780
Direct, Email, IM $585
Reddit $170
Google $120

Let me know if you have any questions:)

    Congrats, Clubhouse is trending right now.

    I don't understand the hype. People really wanted a group with voice chat? How do they talk random things when people are around you? How privacy works?

    1. 2

      I tried it out.

      I don't think of it as a communication app, I think of it as they move the panel (speaker session) at offline events to virtual. So I can listen to famous people chat with each other.

      Then the 2nd use could be chatting with personal connections.

      I think the famous people route will be quite good as it is another channel to build brand and audience, but for non-famous people, I'm not sure what's the value.

      1. 1

        Agreed. Still need to see how it plays out. Topic based follows gave out interesting conversations too

      Yes, it's pretty addictive too. There are interesting topics and rooms that popup now and then. Since it's not recordable one needs to be there to listen, if they missed it there are no rewinds. Super optimistic on clubhouse overall and it's journey ahead.

    Medium traffic is organic?

  3. 1

    Do you pay back to the people who share invites? I'm not quite getting the concept, maybe because it is midnight now Zzzz

    1. 1

      Nop. Have written in detail on the medium post and buymeacoffee page posts on how we run the train. Each train is at 6am pst where invites are shared with those that are online and not added to CH yet. Creating a trust based pay it forward train is what I did and putting it out there.
