Hey Guys,

I have been working with a fundraising company for the past several years...primarily in Texas...and it has been GREAT! Well this year the company has decided to expand their territory and go national...as a result they need more school performers!

I have already signed on several top school show performers...but we still need more!

What's this all about? Well the basic idea is that your show will be used as an incentive for this particular fundraing company. We have a 'system' that took almost two years to develope...and it really works! The company markets to the schools directly...books the programs for you...you do the shows and get paid! Once accepted...I'll send you much more information...but that's the basic idea.

I have been with working with these guys for almost 3 years and they are great...I wouldn't put my name on the line if I didn't believe in the integrity of the company.

Anyway, listed below are the states where we still need performers. If you are interested send me an e-mail with your qualifications for presenting school shows, your website, e-mail, address, states you can work, and phone number. Send it to magic@codyfisher.com. It may take me a while to get back with you so be patient!

Still need performers for:

• Alabama
• Alaska
• Colorado
• Delaware
• District of Columbia
• Hawaii
• Idaho
• Illinois
• Indiana
• Iowa
• Kentucky
• Maine
• Maryland
• Massachusetts
• Minnesota
• Mississippi
• Montana
• Nebraska
• New Hampshire
• New Mexico
• North Dakota
• Oregon
• Rhode Island
• South Carolina
• South Dakota
• Vermont
• Virginia
• Washington
• West Virginia
• Wisconsin
• Wyoming


Thanks Guys,
Cody S. Fisher

Well, if I was back in Alaska visiting half of my grandkids -- or in Washington, visiting the other half. Unfortunately, I'm here in li'l ol' forgotten Arkansas, where the National Tobacco Spitting Contest (Women's Division) is held.

Hey guys...Thanks for everyone's time. I have send everyone a general e-mail with some general info.

FYI I'll be at a trade show all week long so I will not be doing any phone interviews this week. I'll start calling everyone personally next week. It should take about 20-30 minutes of your time and after the call you will know everything you need to know make your decision.

I look forward to speaking with everyone...

Upadate!

Hey guys...thanks for all the responses! I have called about 1/3 of my massive list...we have some really GREAT talent so far! It should take me another 2-3 weeks to get back with everyone personally. If you have not recieved a call from me...you will...I just need a little time. I am basically calling in the order I recieved the e-mails!

Looking forward to personally chatting with everyone who sent me an e-mail...

O.K. so thanks for everyone's patience...I have made 120+ personal phone calls. I had several clowns, jugglers, and other variety type acts contact me. This is not my decision...but the fundraising company I am working with only wants magic acts so for those who fell into that category, you did not receive a phone call.

So far we have around 50+ really great performers who have signed on...I wish all them the best and sincerely hope that they are as successful as I have been over the past several years.

I am still considering other performers. If you are interested send me an e-mail to magic@codyfisher.com with your info. (see previous posts for what I need from you)

To everyone else who I have contacted...mark your calendars for the teleconferece on August 23rd. You should have received an e-mail with info on how to call in. If not let me know!

There will be quite a few of us on the phone and we will go over all the details. I will be on hand to answer any qestions that may come up.

Thanks again!

Is anyone having success with this? I've had my link to their site prominently displayed on the front page of my web site, as required, for over 4 months now and have not had one inquiry.

Admittedly, I have not used the many methods they recommend to book myself, but I thought I would get few leads from the company by now.

I'd really like to hear from someone who is doing well and maybe advise me on what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks!

Cody did not want me because I am a juggling magician. I do not understand how that extra skill can disqualify me, but if you did not get one lead in 6 months it would have been a waste of time for me.

Could it be the economy?

If the PTO/PTA is paying for the visit and they can not raise the funds at fundraisers because the $$$ and jobs are tight - then school shows gotta go.

Also Fed $$$ from grants could be tight - not much reform in that area - testing is still a #1 priority and out of classroom time is tight. (There are states where the teachers income is based on the test scores of their students)

either way - things gotta change. The pendulium swings both was, but this is a unique and rough times for many as there are more performers now that schools can afford.

As with everything else - it won't last forever.

Ken,

Just visited your site.

I wouldn't offer any words unless you asked - and you did.

A public school very well could look at your site and think it is a dooer of much and not a master of any. Even though the various markets do cross over and typically we can do it all. But schools like specialist. (there is an over all stigma against magicians in schools - typically it is an entertaining program with weak educational content.)

There are those who offer specific programs for school and their needs. My advice is to have a web site dedicate to school programs only. Don't let them know about the other stuff you do - just keep it to what you can do for them (the schools) and there is no one better that you!

You have a link for faith based programs - that is great, I am with you on that BUT unless you are marketing to only Christian schools, it is an unfortunate check mark with public (or should I say government - lol) schools. The system overly PC in their actions and for some strange reason beyond my understanding - all other faiths are ok with them, but an outspoken Christian is given not as warm reception.

I know this is going to open a can of worms and very well may make people very upset - but is you spend any time in the school systems across the country and you do not have your head in the sand, you would say the same thing.

Good luck and keep the faith!
Don't let things get you down and remember that slumps don't last forever!
In the mean time - keep as many irons in the fire as you can.

Al having an extra skill, does not seem to be a bad thing to me friend. It would seem to set you apart and be a QUALIFING FACTOR to a clever agent!
