One of the most common questions customers ask at our magic shop is " How do I take the next step from performing magic for family and friends, to performing for the public and turning my hobby into a profitable career?"
The secret to professional magic is MARKETING and it's a subject rarely discussed in magic books. That's where the The Merchant of Magic can help with this Ebook by Professional Magician Sean Heydon.
If you are looking to take that first step out to public performance you will find this information invaluable. If you are already a working magician it's very easy to become 'relaxed' in your marketing as you fall into old habits or unknowingly overlook a tip or step that could be bringing in more work. Just view this as a valuable 'refresher course' after all, if you are missing just a few of the methods and marketing systems taught in this book, then you are probably losing out on bookings to those that use professional marketing to their full advantage.
For some time magicians have asked Sean time and time again to share with them his success. He has contemplated holding seminars and giving lectures. The truth is he is just too busy! So in his spare time he has written this e-book "The One Minute Magic Business"
It covers: Booking, Restaurant Magic, Trade Shows, Corporate Gigs, how to get your self residencies at restaurants and much more.
"I truly believe that there is an abundance of opportunities for every magician in the world to live the life style they deserve." Sean Heydon

"Sean is right on the ball choosing the title ' The One Minute Magic Business' After all, success as a magician really only takes a minute. It's when you spend that minute to actively decide that instead of just putting an advert for yourself in yellow pages and then sitting back for the phone to ring, you are going to market yourself to your full potential. Well Done!" John Harris
"We all have learnt from books on magic, but you may not be able to show that magic without the bookings. Sean is a highly successful full time pro magician who has made it happen. In this book he shares the strategies that have brought him success. Studying books such as these will help get the benefit from those other magic books." B. Pedley
