Hi - this is my first time in the business section, so I'm not sure if this has been discussed. I am trying to find promotional web sites that email the entertainer when someone is looking for a a service in his/her area. I use one with a good deal of success, but I haven't found any others that do this. Most sites will put up a pre-fab web page and your info - and you have to hope that a client notices it and contacts you. With the site I use, all the magicians in my general location get the same email when a client is looking for their type of entertainment. They each bid on the show, and then get access to all the information needed for booking it. If a client selects one, that magician gets an email from the hosting site notifying that he is hired.

Does anyone know of a site like this (which is Gig Masters)? I think it would help to be on several like this.

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dennis D.

Dennis,
Try GigSalad. There isn't as much traffic, but you should more than pay for your membership.

I suggest you google your favorite keywords (for example, magicians bridgewater, MA) Whatever sites come up on the first page or two are worth looking into.

I use alltimefavorites, but I don't know what to think of them. They seem very disorganized.

Yes, Al I agree. I was with them for several years hoping they were in the process of becoming a serious lead generation recource. They were very sloppy and never really evolved into what their potential could've been and I had hoped for. I did get quite a few leads that if I picked up the phone a called direct, was pretty successful. I ended up having a fall out with them after four years.

I tried for several months to find out where I should send them their commission. I eventually was able to get a human being on the phone to give me their snail mail address.

Gigsalad has been pretty good to me, but I've found that the gigs that I do book seem to be price shoppers. Either way, I still get the gigs.

Everyone -- Thanks so much for your advice!

I have been impressed by Gig Masters, but I just need to get more bookings since I have been laid off my computer job. Actually, I have decided to go full time with Magic. So far I have doubled my magic income, compared to last year. The best help has been from Gig Masters and Lou Serrano's magic business course.

I will look into all your suggestions.

Thank you.... Dennis
