SITE UPDATE: Apologies if the site looks a little sparse today. Due to some technical issues I’ve reverted the site to a more simple theme. It doesn’t look quite so flashy now, but is allows for full functionality on the course (which is more important for members!) It you find any bugs or have any issues please email me ([email protected]) and I will endeavour to get it fixed quickly. Thanks for your understanding! Robert, 11th May 2022
How To Be A Professional Magician is a website that aims to teach you how to earn income from performing magic.
With video lessons, articles, podcasts and a selection of courses this site aims to be the ultimate resource to help you set up a successful business performing magic – from children’s shows to top corporate events.
Find out how you can use your hobby as a way to generate a second income, or become a full time professional. Learn how to perform at children’s parties, private events, weddings, corporate events (including after-dinner and theatre shows) and even at trade shows, exhibitions and on board cruise ships!
This isn’t a website for tricks (I’m guessing you already know plenty of those), but for marketing techniques and business tips essential for every professional.
Learn To Be A Professional Magician
This website has core lessons applicable for any magic business, from entertaining at children’s parties through to staging theatre shows and corporate events. All of this is from my own personal experience.
This site is primarily designed for the amateur/hobbyist who is looking into the world of performing magic to earn money for the first time. It is also useful for magicians who may have a little experience, or professionals who just aren’t getting the number of bookings they need to live they life they want.
What it doesn’t contain is the latest fads or systems. It starts from the ground up to build a solid foundation. Unfortunately this is a long process and requires time and effort. If you are looking for a webinar that will promises to double your income in a few easy steps then this is not the place for you! ;-)
More niche areas are explored in the Articles. Some of these may be aimed more at a specific genre, or for readers who are already experienced; but want to better their presentation, branding or marketing. For this reason these articles are also grouped by category.
But the main content is found in the How To Be A Professional Magician Courses. The Full Course contains everything, and when you purchase it you have everlasting membership. This means that you’ll have access to updates and new lessons immediately.
If you don’t want to take the Full Course you take enrol for the smaller courses (which are sub-sections of the Full Course) to focus on the areas that matter to your business. You can also sign up for a the Free Taster to get a sample of what is included.
No Experience Necessary
Although it’s likely that you already have an interest in magic, and have possibly performed before; this site is designed to take someone with absolutely NO experience in marketing and performing magic and set them on the road to earning an income from magic.
Since becoming a full time professional magician in 2006 I have been a successful children’s entertainer, performed close-up magic at hundreds of weddings and parties, and presented my stage mind-reading show to top corporate audiences and packed theatres.
However, when I gave a month’s notice to resign from my employment I had not earned a single penny from performing magic. But I started the process of building, promoting and marketing my new magic business straight away; so that once the four week period had passed I was already earning money.
I am to help you also build the foundation of a solid magic business, setting prices, packages and developing your business, using the included templates to ensure you are going in the right direction and increasing your chances of succeeding where many others have failed.
It’s Not Just Marketing Magic
If the Full Course you’ll learn to create packages, cross-selling and up-selling to customer, and running your new career as an established business. As well as Sections covering the different styles of magic and how each style is promoted, there is a full Section on marketing. Again, templates are included to get you started.
But don’t just think it’s a ‘turn-key business’. A lot of hard work and dedication will be required by you; but you’ll build a brand that is unique to you, and be sought after by people looking to book a magician in your area.
Everything on this website and in the courses have come directly from my experience as a full time professional magician, and uses my knowledge to get your business generating income from paid bookings within weeks.
The resources available through this website also covers the cost of setting up in business, and uses realistic models to ensure you know what you are getting into before you take the plunge.
Learn From the Expensive Mistakes I Made – So You Won’t Make Them Too
If you want to earn money from magic, whether part-time or as a full time professional this website is essential. The complete course is designed to be a whole new business (and life-style) in a box, and if the Lessons are applied then not only will you re-coup your costs within the first booking or two you do, but will give you the tools to earn a good living right up to the day you decide to retire from the magic business.
Thanks, I hope this site is of use and helps you build your magic career,
