I walk up, introduce myself, and offer a business card. It helps to have a regular gig like a restaurant and invite them to see you perform. I like to offer a quick demo of what I do and play it by ear when to quit. I usually don't show more than three effects. You know you have done well when they show up with friends at your gig.

This might sound trivial but depending on the area, you might want to emphasize that you don't expect any money after your performance (unless of course, you do!). I find that often times people will avoid me on the streets of New York or Boston for fear of me panhandling. I find when I approach people and say "excuse me, are you guys interested in seeing some magic? I'm not looking for any tips, just a chance to show off some of my skills..." I get a lot more positive responses!
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it now. Boldness has genius, power, and magic at its core.
