As more and more magicians crop up and make sure their website is on Google Adwords, it’s interesting to see that the general price of close up magicians vary massively (one guy advertises magic for £99!). Usually I see about 5 new magicians every month. Maybe more.
As a magician you can’t buy experience and talent – however, you can buy a website that looks great. So, how can you tell a good magician from a bad one from their website?
Well, look for pictures of them performing. That’s a start. Or the best way is to look at their promo video – if they have no personality on their videos then chances are they will have even less charisma when they show magic at a party. And a magician without charisma is like an alcohol free beer!
