Hey Guys,

Here are 10 more things that you could be doing to propel your career! These are new to my plan, but am sure they will make a huge difference in my plan.

1. Free Demo to introduce customer to your service
2. Write a column in a local magazine or paper
3. Update your homepage
4. Support a Cause
5. Build Awareness
6. Offer opportunity to upgrade
7. Follow Up (this is going to be a big thinker for me)
8. Produce an Ebook that would appeal to your target market
9. Search Engine Optomization
10. Signs and Posters
11. Gift Certificates (possibly to your online magic shop)
12. E-mail (just booked a library today from a blast of 100)
13. Directory Listings
14. Get Consent (call and introduce yourself so they expect your materials)
15. Develope an "A" list of customers
16. Targeting (seperate your markets)
17. Mention other satasfied customers

I want to speak about number 17. Today, I recieved an email from someone interested in price. I sent her an e-mail and then called her 30 minutes later. She was checking out the video testimonial as wel spoke. The sale was really smooth sailing, and I believe it was b/c of the testimonial video.

Hope you enjoyed!

I sent out a blast of 100 and was able to book one show for this month! The other shows have came from online request. That is where I am spending most of my time, but I am also trying to set something up with the local American Cancer Society. I plan to put flyers and/or POP displays around town, and pick up a restaurant again! I did meet with a few restaurants in November, but they wouldn't even budge for the free hour. Things are deffinately slow, but will pick up...I have faith!

The more we cultivate the garden, the more the garden will produce! Reading the fresh ideas of others is always inspirational.
Wonder is very necessary in life. When we're little kids, we're filled with wonder for the world - it's fascinating and miraculous. A lot of people lose that. They become cynical and jaded, especially in modern day society. Magic renews that wonder.
