After receiving a weekly email by Lybrary.com, I was compelled to buy a book on the site that Chris Wasshuber gave a very favorable review for.

http://www.lybrary.com/get-gigs-right-now-p-264007.html

Here's the ad: "Are you a financially broke performer? Are you complaining that your gigs have dried up due to the economy? Or you might be that brave entrepreneur who wants to start performing magic or mentalism as a full-time profession but have to take a detour around the waiting time it takes to make money and getting your name out there? You might be in a "do or die", gun-to-the-head situation where you have to start generating 'immediate' income to provide for yourself and your family, or else...

This step-by-step ebook course is the answer for those of you who want to jump-start their performing career. Even those who are doing well will gain additional business if they follow this system. You will put yourself in front of people who will want to hire you for their corporate or private events and make money while you're marketing yourself to these people. It does not matter what it is you're marketing or whether you're a corporate entertainer, birthday party magician, hypnotist, etc.

Imagine... you could potentially book yourself solid for the next week within minutes after reading through this ebook. Mentalist Robert Marsi has conquered this virtually "untapped" market that allowed him to book shows and make hundreds of dollars instantly in a single setting. You make money while you market yourself to potential clients! And the best part of all this? You do not need promotional materials to book these gigs! They are very easy to book. No marketing expense whatsoever except the cost of a phone bill. You can book your shows from the comfort of your home using your telephone or smartphone!

Included in this ebook is how to book yourself, getting ready for your show, the #1 technique to get rid of stage freight, getting up to do your show, making the money at your show, using the power of media at your shows to turn you 'famous' overnight, and a whole lot more. In the end, what you achieve for yourself is exactly the amount of work you're willing to put into it, and the information contained in this ebook will help you along the way.

Get it now... or watch your competition make money and get booked for higher paying gigs using these strategies!"

After reading through this ebook I said to myself "WOW"! Many books on marketing I've read only mentioned a few words about what Robert has fully explored in this ebook. No guesswork needed, everything you need to get booked instantly is laid out. When I got done reading it I decide to make a few calls and I was booked for 2 engagements! This stuff works. This is unlike any book I've ever read and I feel like I definitely got my money's worth! However, he includes 3 effects that one can do at the end of the book. These effects are for "laypeople" as this book was written for not only magicians and mentalists but also for the general public.

One thing I've learned is that it's nice to play with magic but its worthless if you're not making any money from it. This book has opened my eyes. I feel more confident now of making a living in this craft. I'm going to be calling more people tomorrow so I can book more shows. Just get it!

It's pretty much like my degree in Culinary arts, or any degree someone may have. It's worthless if I'm not making income from it to pay my bills.

This sounds great, but then, so do all the other ones of the same ilk. With any luck at all, this one will be THE ONE that wil get us all booked solid.
However, I'll wait till I get a review and critique from a Café member we know, with a track record, and more than 4 posts. No offense to the OP, of course, and thanks for his recommend.

However, since Magic is NOT worthless without its income producing abilites, I wonder what else I disagree with.

The price, $37, seems great if it works, too high if it doesn't offer anything new. Staying tuned for more reviews.

The other thing is, marketing is somewhat different in the uk to that in the states, the same base rules apply I'm sure, but the general approach can be wildly different...

I see this is also available on the Kindle.

You can read about it on Amazon and get a pretty good idea of what this is and whether it would be for you. I didn't pick this up but thought about it.

I haven't read this PDF yet but I spoke with Marsi several times a week while he was writing it. As you may already know he is quite a gifted radio mentalist and we shared that interest. I helped him with some radio effects and he was sharing with me how he got the majority of his gigs. I was unaware he would be releasing this material in written form and I was surprised he did.
If this is the same as our discussions I would say it plays as it reads . As in all things you will get out what you put in. Marsi is a pro and I wish I had half as many gigs as he does!!
I will review the book in a week or so.

I received a message from someone who explained to me why my review raised eyebrows. I understand now and I just wanted to do a good deed for someone who wrote a book which inspired me and made me appreciate this craft more knowing I could make money with it. Yes, I'm new here and I apologize if caused alarm. I'm also excited to be a part of this forum.

Seems very suspicious to me. A new poster comes on here right out of the shoot with no credibility leaving a raving review. It's obvious why anyone here would be suspect.

Also this vague marketing and vague review is exactly what's wrong with this industry today. Most do not know what kind of performer this guy is and he or the OP/reviewer won't even say what the market is for the bookings. This results in a you-have-to-buy-it-to-even-discover-if-the-author-content-and-market-are-for-you. Any time you pay to buy or pay first to get the basic information and true description send up an immediate red flag.

Again, he should be sending it to two or three credible members here BEFORE it's release to offer legitimate reviews and his hype and promo should give some specifics (not necessarily all the goods, methods or secrets) so the interested purchaser's know exactly what they are purchasing.

djohnson, re-read your review. It says absolutely nothing other than your opinion that you liked it. It doesn't give any specifics as to why or it's content or actual information on what and why it's different than other courses or programs available.

If you're going to offer a "review" offer some actual information and examples.

Mindpro, now I regret posting a review. I only expressed my opinions and if you think I was asked to review this then you're wrong. I just wanted to share this with the community. In the book, Mr. Marsi points out that the organizations you market to are desperate for speakers and entertainers. I took the initiative and called up 5 such organizations and booked 2. I was jumping up and down in joy. However these are not paid gigs but he teaches you how turn them into paid gigs. And that's all Ill say without giving away too much. I'm a full time cook at a classy restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina and I want to make that leap to have a part-time business doing magic/mentalism.

If there is something wrong about being a newbie and posting my reviews/opinions then perhaps this forum is not for me.

I'm on my iPhone so I can't figure out how to post a link to one of Marsi's radio shows. If someone would search the link they would hear that Marsi is a real pro .... I too am extremely suspicious about someone posting immediately after joining. If you check my history you will find I'm extremely skeptical of this behavior, however I wouldn't put away my thinking cap just yet. Perhaps this is some kind of a set up???? Let the conspiracy theories fly !!!!

Wait. I'm confused. It shows you how to get tons of UNPAID gigs? Oh. To get your name out there I guess. In hopes someone who sees you wants to pay you for a gig. Novel. Here's an idea: perform walk around/table hopping at your swanky restaurant on your days off. $10 please.

Hi guys - if I might be so bold as to offer an additional review - I did buy the book and can report the following:

It is 52 pages long which seems brief given the price.
It offers one primary idea for how to acquire free gigs which might afford an opportunity for add on sales or referral work.
The idea is NOT one that has not been already suggested in other products which more comprehensively address marketing for entertainers.
The book is reasonably well written and produced.

For me, it was not value for money - if a newcomer had no experience of business breakfast clubs or charitable events then the book might well indeed be a revelation but otherwise, I suspect that the book might seem to fall a little short of expectations. To be fair the title of the book is not 'Increase your revenue' or 'Get PAID Gigs Right Now' and so it does do precisely what it claims but I came away feeling disappointed and under nourished!

Apologies if this perspective is a little negative but it might serve to balance djohnson's perspective which, while no less valid (and welcome to the forum - please don't allow the frosty reception put you off but it might be worth sharing ideas rather than reviews and recommendations to begin with while we get to know you) isn't aligned with my sense of what that kind of money ought to deliver!
