Id like this discussion to talk about marketing your magic show. How to get your name out there, create contacts, best ways to network, ect. Hopefully this sparks good creative ideas to get people to get a performing magic business going

That's kind of a broad question, and there's been a lot of marketing discussion on this Board before. What kind of show are you selling?

If you're looking for corporate gigs, I'd suggest investing in Oz Pearman's second "Penguin Live" lecture. (I didn't see the first lecture, though it was apparently more effect and technique oriented.) But I did see the second lecture, which focused heavily on corporate gig marketing.

You can either download it or stream it. (I prefer the download because it's easier to stop, start, and find your place again.) At 3-1/2 hours, you'd likely want to watch this in at least two sittings. http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/2697#reviews

Word of mouth is one of the best ways to get your name out. Let your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers know about your show. Build a website, make business cards and get a facebook page. If you do have a facebook page, share a link, I'll follow it and share with my friends. Here is a link to mine....https://www.facebook.com/MikeyAirTheBalloonist?ref=hl Feel free to like my page. Best of luck.

Beware Benji Bruce's suggestion. Following some of his ideas will get you in trouble.
