I have heard GREAT things about his courses, and I am thinking of investing in one of his packages....I am wondering though - through experience do you find that his complete system is helpful to a guy who performs full-time, has read A FEW courses (by no big names) and is decently set-up in his town for marketing or is it more helpful to someone that is just getting started...Also, the childrens book, is it just for birthdays, OR does it help with libraries, fairs, camps, schools etc. etc.

Do his marketing principles require A BIG investment ??

Also, for those of you who do have some of his material, have you found that it has drastically improved your sales etc.??

Thanks very much.

Eric has products for both, the beginner just getting started and the more experienced performer who already performs full time. Everything he offers is chock full of solid, real world information. Why don't you give him a call to discuss which product would meet YOUR needs?

Do his marketing principles require a BIG investment? Only you can decide how much you budget for marketing each year. It's part of your business plan, and different goals and strategies will require different resources. It really depends upon where your are in your career and where you want to go.

Two things that will drastically increase your sales are:

1) a better show - it starts and ends with your show. You should be booking two or three spin-off shows after every performance. If you aren't, work on your show.

2) a well thought business and marketing plan with specific goals and strategies. Have you written a business plan for 2008 yet?

Finally, I include a certain amount each year in my business plan for professional development. That includes the purchase of educational materials, reference books and attending conferences and seminars. As Konstantin Stanislavski wrote, "The artist who is not going forward, is going backward."

Hi Jim,

Thanks for getting back to me. I have a business plan for this year, as I do for every year and I agree on setting money aside for learning more. I will give him a call and discuss this.

Thanks again.

Hi there,

Hopefully, I can help on this one. It’s come up a bunch recently and I’ll give you all the scoop…

“How To Become Your Area’s TOP Children’s Entertainer” :

This is the course I put out under Dave Dee’s urging. I had taken his ideas and my own and implemented them in my market. I killed the Birthday Party Business here in my area.

Very quickly turned a nothing of a business into $120,000 solid for years.

Ed Harris Magic-Art:

Shortly after releasing this course, I purchased the rights to the Ed Harris Magic-Art from the Harris’. Mr. Harris was failing and I didn’t want to see his great work disappear. We worked out an agreement and I transferred everything into digital files.

“The Successful Family Entertainer – Volume 1”:

This book was released in short-run for those that wanted to know what I was doing at my shows. It includes tons of routines and some marketing strategies. Solid, real-world stuff - Still the best deal in magic in my eyes!

“The System Training Sessions”:

After years of doing birthday parties and family events in my market, I came close to “burn-out”. I was just simply doing too many shows.

So, instead of getting out of magic, I designed a system and created a perfect business for myself. I am running this same system today.

The idea is to create something that works for you and to do the shows you want to do, not the shows you have to do. An important distinction for sure. This system relies on direct mail and heavily on database management – i.e. getting the most out of your current client list.

I love doing it this way. It’s on auto-pilot for the most part and I work with the people I want to. My income has soared as a result, I have more free-time and a lot more fun.

Last year I decided to share this with my magic friends and this course spawned out of those tele-seminars and web events. It’s not for the hobbyist. It is for pros. It is basicaly my business blueprint.

Since then, I have released a few more things:

“The Anatomy of an Amazingly Successful Show Booking Campaign”:

This is a complete documentation of my summer campaign that brought in a ton of gigs. It also includes a little gem of how I re-activate “dead” clients.

“The Theater Show Booking System”:

This is honestly the best thing I’ve ever put out. It is where I make my real money nowadays and have a ton of fun doing them. Again, this is not for the hobbyist by any means. To utilize this system, you should have a great act! (Actually, that applies to everything!)

The Mastermind Level Coaching Group:

This is a brand-new opportunity that launched in December. We now have a core group of serious full-time magicians, a members-only forum, monthly calls and much more. It’s pretty cool and is making me a much better entertainer in the process too.

So I hope that answers many of the questions on a few different posts recently. I hope this doesn’t come across as “salesman-like”, it’s not meant to be. This whole thing is very much a part-time venture for me. I still perform full-time and plan to forever.

What I do is not for everyone. But for those that are out there performing full-time or want to, it’s proven to be very useful.

My idea has always been to document what works for me and share it with you (or those that want to know). It’s pretty simple and I’m happy to help in anyway I can.

Yours in success,

Eric Paul

I would say DITTO to everything Jim said. eric's stuff is the real deal. What he sells in his courses if the real stuff no fluff only the real work of someone that is in the trenches with us.

I think only you can decide what your investment is. I have paid hundreds of dollars for other stuff only to get of them small ideas that have turned into big money makers. No course will give you the magic bullet that everyone looks for. One can sell a course but, they can tell you how they did it or do it and then you will have to make happen for yourself.

So I say go for it on Erics stuff.

Just head down to the "Magic Marketing" thread and read a lot more about Eric and the other programs, and my comments which will respond also to your question.

(But to answer directly your question, if you are already doing a number of shows, then you may be ready for Eric's full system. I have found it has helped my business. My 4th year full-time and close to 250 shows! Could have been more, but I slipped off the track a little!!!LOL)

Only 250 Blair?

You slacker Smile

But seriously, you are the man!

"Massive Action" seems like the key for you.

And thanks Ken, your stuff is the real deal too! I just got my arms out of your tuxedo an hour ago! (That refers to Ken's fabulous "Fantasy Magician" to clear things up.)

Eric,

And remember that 250 is a mixed bag...children...family...corporate...illusion show! When I say fall off the track, means I became lazy. When I look at a weeks worth of phone calls and bookings I can see where 90% resulted from ACTIONS I have taken. If the calls are not coming in, I ask MYSELF what have I done to bring them in??? Want to move yourself to the next level...take MASSIVE action!

"Do his marketing principles require A BIG investment ??"

Not sure if you mean $$$ or time, as far as cost, I do not feel they are not expensive (I come from industry where day courses and seminars cost big $$$$) If you are talking about time and the efforts you invest....yes, considerable effort is required, especially in the beginning when you have to retrain yourself into a method of operation. But once you are up and rolling (the point to which which Eric's material pushes you to). It becomes easy.

(Off to do some shows...back later!)

Let me just say "The System" is THE best purchase in my magic career.
I was lucky enough to be one of the first 10 or so to join in.
For 2 years or so of being in the inner circle, the free, let me say it again THE FREE tele seminars, the countless free news letters, inner circle only e mails, and the countless people I have been networked with because of The System, and How To Be Your Area Top Entertainer, all this is worth 1000 time the investment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have bought both.
Most people say "! Free consultation with purchase" and that is all you get.
This dude lets you fire email after email, and not only answers them himself, but puts them in his news letter and many big time pros put in comments themselves.
By buying "The System" you are getting more than you can even digest with all the WEEKLY. that is right WEEKLY stuff he throws your way.
If you want to explode your career, buy the system.
Eric even has a money back gurantee, what more could we ask for?
Test drive it and if you think he is crazy, send it back for a refund.

Ok, I am back to my email to watch the FREE video marketing seminar EP sent

p.s. it is all part of buying the system, which gets you in the inner circle!! Smile

Oh by the way, it does not require a huge investment.
As a matter of fact, all his stuff he gives you on cd is ready made templates. You just plug in your info.
The investment is what ever your printer and mailing will cost.

Can you tell I am a beleiver?

I started this magic stuff 5 years ago, and I started with the "how to be your areas top childrens entertianer as my first big investment.
EP material has worked well for me.

I'd like to second what mrlucky has said. I own several of EP's products and have been happy with them all. The only thing I would like to add about the system is that it is not Marketing 101, you hit the ground running. So if you have an understanding of basic marketing techniques, then it is a wise purchase.

I joined last week; what an awesome call last night; I listened to it again today.

Eric's got excellent resources available. He doesn't just get you fired up, he gives you the tools to actually do something with all that fire!

It WAS a great call, wasn’t it!? I LOVED IT!

Eric has DONE and IS DOING what he shares with others so they can follow in his successful footsteps... certainly no one can "BE" Eric, or Brian, Or anyone else BUT themselves, but life and success a soooooooo much simpler when you can follow in the proven, tested footsteps of others who have actually done the work and gotten the real RESULTS!

I'd support that any day!

Hey, no need to re-invent the wheel, but there is room to plug YOU into tested, result getting success and add a few ‘spokes’ of your own to a well-built wheel to make it that much stronger and get where you hope to be faster, sooner and more on track... that is my experience as well.

I am at your service and In HIS Service,

Hey Brian,

Was on the call also last night, what an amount of info!!!! Had to cut out early as I had a photoshoot with my photographer today. 6 HOURS of shooting. At my age I need my beauty rest. Took in a segment from each of my shows because I am putting up a family site. (As an alternate to my corporate.) Came home and had 3 shows booked on my answering machine from one of my current mailings. What was great was these were not requests for information, but to book. I only had to confirm the dates asked for were ok for me. AWESOME!!!

Take care guys!

YES YES YES!

My favorite quote is:

WWEPD

"What Would Eric Paul Do?"

HAHA! Eric will love this! But seriously, Eric is 100% the real deal, a man I'm proud to call my friend, and is someone who cares about helping other people. Truly cares. So do the guys who are close to Eric. All the guys I've connected with through Eric Paul's teaching feel the same way and are lifelong learners and do'ers! I've made many friends through my associations with Eric and I've made a lot of money with his help too. When would be the best time for you to invest in what Eric offers?
