First time working the Parlour of Prestidigitation at the Castle since 1992. I absolutely LOVE my job. It doesn’t get any better than this! What a long strange trip it’s been. Thank you Jack Goldfinger and Joseph Furlow for continuing to believe in me.
I had a goal at the beginning of the month to have a website up and running by the end of the month. Getting close, The first three weeks I just thought about it, brainstormed/mindmapped on a large white board. Sent the last hour trying out different themes and adding content. Not really that happy with it. But it’s a work in progress.
Please feel free to leave a coment and let me know what you think.
Was down in Anaheim all day at the NAMM show. Had a great time seeing old friends and making some new ones. Performed at an after party.
Been a busy boy today, sadly not on my website. Taught a 2 hour private lesson this morning to a fine young man who I met in Miami while I was on my lecture tour last spring. He’s out here in LA for business several times a year. This was the 2nd lesson we’ve done. It. went quite well.
A bit of running around and watched the day slip away. It’s only 7:30pm, I was going to go out, but now I’m thinking I might stay home and work on this a bit more. Guess we’ll see. Victor Wooten playing at the El Ray in Hollywood in an hour and a half. Hmmmmm
I would like to have video’s on the site as well as e-commerce, to sell my products. I guess link to my social media sites, like all the kids are doing. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter etc.
Sent Steve Weinstein my pal, who has done all my promo for decades, an email regarding graphic design for a new business card and logo for Tom Frank Magic. Re-branding from my old Industrial Strength Magic.
Street Magic is the same thing at Trade Show Work. Get the crowd, keep the crowd, get the lead/money, turn it over and do it again. It’s a special skill to create a show from no one to a crowd and keep them long enough to sell them. I owned a Magic Shop for a dozen years. On the front lines of retail, I fine tuned many product pitches as well as booking corporate work infusing a company’s product or message to enhance a sales meeting, product presentation or trade show.
What am I selling? Shows of course, products yes,
Who am I? What makes me different? Why should they care?
How do I keep the site simple and stream lined
Tonight I coughed up $96 to WordPress to help build a wesite with easy to use functioning.
Looks like I’m in for a bit of a learning curve, but I feel that I’m up to the task
Being an entertainer isn’t always fun or easy when it comes to the business end of things.
