The advice that has been given here before many times was spread it out thin & even & give a tiny side to side motion (harder with the socket A clips).
I use wooden coffee stir sticks I just use a pair of wire cutters to shorten them to the lenght I need (no slivers allowed), also you could use the plastic stixs from old lunchbox type of cheese & crackers.

Do not use to much compound & the oil in the (greese, compound) does not wash out of stuff
very well like on your hands (taste awful to) so be carefull.

I see faults with both ways of HS stuff being added & as air pockets or no stuff is the worst.
First off your HS can touch stuff before the clip is in place (bad for drop in the center & spread out) & the HS clips that are rigid like ORB's are attached at one end first so one side of the HS could be touching the CPU before the HS stuff is spread out if drop in center is used.
