"What turns me off more are marketing books that are long and drawn out, and take forever to get to the point. Even more, some are written by people, who put down nothing but theory on paper. However, Dan Cain's "Get Paid to Perform" is a definite breath of fresh air.

This 37-page easy-to-read ebook is great for people who are wanting to start their business as a magical performer. The crux of this work focuses on cold calling. If you have a telephone on hand, you can do this, especially if you can't get out much and meet people who can hire you.

Dan tells you who to call, how to speak with them, and gives you the necessary scripts so you don't have to figure anything out. You will be much more confident to cold call prospective clients and book shows. Included in this ebook are two different contracts you can use to secure your gigs.

For the price you are really getting a bargain. Everything you need to get started in your business is included. Highly recommended.
Robert Marsi, CEO at Marsi & Associates

"Dan this is exactly what the community needs. Thanks for making this. This book is a must read for anyone remotely serious about making money performing. This guide is well written and literary has a complete approach to becoming a professional full-time paid performer. You can use the techniques described in this book to start getting paid gigs right away. This book has not only a guided approach to making yourself into a paid professional, it has practical advice for different situations, face to face meetings or over the phone this book has it covered. Dan Cain also makes some home truths that we all need to hear. With advice about business cards, phone conversations, contracts and much more, you really will have everything you need. Dan says there are no magic “effects” taught in this book and while that is true in the strict sense I would argue that being able to land paid gigs seems like magic to me. I was reading this book while having a coffee in a restaurant, I tried out one of the techniques described in the book and I landed a gig for the following week in under 10 minutes. Powerful stuff." -Mr. E. Mann, Coordinator for FullCircleMagic.com and Full Circle Magic Facebook Group

Contrary to what another reviewer has said, the scripts in this book are made for a person serious about making money with their magic business. If you want to continue being the guy (or gal) that just does a few tricks for your friends here and there, then this book is not suited for you. But if you are serious about making money with your magic (whatever category of magic you do) then ADD TO CART! I applied some principles in this book to my approach and when I was asked what my fee would be I said a dollar figure (I never thought I would say an amount like that) and then I STOPPED TALKING! I was sooo nervous that I wouldn't get the gig. I was told by the GM of this company that the cost "sounded reasonable" and wanted to know if I had anything to send over in the form of an agreement. I quickly said yes and used the actual agreement inside this book that is provided. I received 50% of my asking fee 3 days later that secured the date via paypal and I will be performing for this company in 2 weeks. Thank you Mr. Dan Cain for, what I call, the BEST starter book for anyone that wants to make money performing magic!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!

It is THE system to use! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 5th, 2013
"Okay... I bought this book. There's a lot of hype about it. There's no effects in this book. If you're looking for the latest finger flinging- go elsewhere. BUT... IF you treat your magic as a business (and why wouldn't you?) then it will probably be the best money you invested to date. I have to say it is not for everyone because it will require you to do 'some' selling, but it is a 'soft' sell. By that I mean it is a win-win situation for your client- (I don't want to give away the key to the book). But the REAL KEY is that you MUST have a good product/show. Without that you're fishing on the end of the pier with no pole, no bait and no fish in sight. Dan has given us a system (don't miss that word), which is a win-win for the client and you. It may not work for every client (it is client specific) but IT WILL WORK. I say this because it depends on the venue/nature of the client's client. Again I can't give away what Dan does in his book. I have to say I have spent hundreds of dollars learning marketing (I'm a putz at marketing) and Dan cuts through the garbage and gets to the meat here. Employ this in THIS SPECIFIC market and it will work. Not gilding the lily here- it's true. Magic is a business and performing is your product. This system has the script, everything."

A Marketing Miracle! Report this review

I've been in the business for many years and this is the first time I've seen or read a marketing concept like this one. Dan has created a way for the customer and the performer to make money in this business! Truly a unique marketing concept!

Fantastic! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 14th, 2013
I'm sitting down to RE-READ Dan Cain's book, "Get Paid to Perform" and I wanted to share my thoughts.

The downside: It's a little short. There are a few areas I'd like more details on the ins and outs of being a paid performer.

But it's still MORE than worth the cost!
It downloads as a PDF so you can read it on your computer or device of choice. I found it easy to read on my Ipad.
I really like his specificity in scripts to book shows. They tell you the benefits to the venue you're booking so you can tell them WHY it will be profitable for them, not just "please book me, I'm awesome".
He tells you why not to put your phone number on your card.
He says exactly, with front and back examples, how to make a brochure.

These are all the things I need to know to book more shows and present myself professionally.

Like most of you I have a big stack of books on magic. But this is the first one I've bought on how to be a professional businessman who happens to be a magician.

Dan's book was great! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2013
Got Dan Cain's book Get paid to preform and here are my thoughts: I really like how its very informed and as being newer to all the business sort of aspect of it. I appreciated that he included documents that he has used and have served him well. However as I noticed was stated earlier I feel like some parts could have been explained better or maybe just a bit more. I also was hoping for a few more documents to help me understand things more... or maybe its just they are all spread out which makes since but if you but them all together at the end I think it would be easier to keep track of them. I appreciate you writing this to help every magician and I hope to land more gigs with it... I look forward to getting his book on the Superbowl prediction asap. Oh and I was a bit disappointed with the tease of a possible effect at the end lol (Not really I have plenty of magic)... I look forward to working with Dan in the future and possibly getting some of his effects as he creates more... Good luck in your future Dan!

I've been stuck - UNTIL NOW! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 18th, 2013
I have a ton of magic stuff (dvds, props, close up, etc). This book actually motivated me to organize my material into a couple different formats.
After reading it I said, "Well now I can pitch myself effectively, but what can I pitch if I don't have a format to pitch?"
Now that I have routines I've set aside for my walk around magic as well as a 30 minute center floor show I feel confident using the scripts in this book!! DAN IS THE MAN!

good hand out Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 9th, 2013
If you are new to performing commercially this book will certainly benefit you.It will open to you the theory of how to approach the client to get maximum mileage.For a seasoned entertainer already into coperate and trade shows this book will bring back to you the dos and donts you most probably are already familiar with but do not apply it.For the seasoned performer reading the phone script before you speak to a client will certainly give you an edge over him .

DO NOT BUY Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 6th, 2013
The scripts in the book are made for the author and only work if you have the exact same routine as the author. Also his idea of what to get paid is ridiculous and completely unrealistic and will lose you potential clients. The advice you can gleam from this poorly written book with multiple TYPOS in it isn't suitable for any real world performer.
