1) Social audio – Clubhouse

Connect with people around the world through audio. Clubhouse allows for drop-in conversations with others who are on the platform. Join in a discussion or just listen to what others are talking about. Discover different rooms where you can engage with people inside your niche. Host your own room and build a larger brand audience online. The app is available to iOS and Google Play users for download on mobile devices.

2) Ad-free social network – CloutHub

Get involved in meaningful communication without being tracked by advertising. CloutHub is a newer platform where users can post about and comment on issues in a variety of topics. Easily locate and connect with others, participate in live events, gather news, and more. Signup is free and accessible on a computer or mobile device.

3) Real-time audio chat – Twitter Spaces

Communicate directly with your brand followers through Twitter. Twitter Spaces helps your business to explain to others what products or services you have available through live questions and answers, helpful information, announcements, and so on. Host your own space or jump in on a specific conversation on either an Android or iOS mobile device.

4) Simple messaging – Honk

Communicate directly with your brand followers through live chat. Honk helps your business to answer customer questions, provide special offers, and connect with others in your industry. Messages are shown live as you type without the need for a send button. The chat history is not saved, however; you can see the two most recent live chats. Currently this app is available for download to iOS users.

Hopefully you will find these social media networks useful to your marketing strategy. Are there any that you would like to add as well?

Have fun with these tips and tools.
