I realised when I wanted to turn professional that I didn’t need to learn new tricks to show the friends and family, but I needed to learn how to generate a different audience (that pays!) to show the same tricks to.
Before you do anything make sure you read the following essays, then check out the How To Be A Professional Magician courses. Ranging from a free taster to a full course designed to take from hobbyist magician to full time pro.
Work your way through this short step by step guide to setting up your business, branding it effectively, marketing and advertising; and then running your business so you can grow, expand, and generate a healthy income.
Finally there is a guide on learning magic routines. I’m assuming that you have at least a little knowledge of performing magic (even if just as a hobby) but I touch on this because what tricks you like to perform, and what tricks the paying audience like, can be different. Don’t worry though, because your existing repertoire can be adjusted!
