When booking a magician for an event, it is important that you get the best value for money and that the magician lives up to expectations. Here are some hints and tips to help you choose the right magician for you.
Portfolio – Every successful event magician will have an extensive portfolio; this may be in picture and/or video form. It is important that you check this before you make a booking as if the magician does not get much work, their act may be substandard whilst a magician with a large and varied portfolio will have had lots of work and potentially repeat bookings from satisfied customers.
Budget – It is important to set your entertainment budget, however, please be aware that you get what you pay for. Many inexperienced or simply substandard magicians offer their services at rock-bottom prices to try to win work. However, more skilled magicians are able to charge premium prices as they are often in demand and know the value of their skills.
Full-Time Professional – Most performing magicians have a wish to make this their full-time employment. If you are looking to book a magician, check whether they perform as their main employment, or as a side-line or hobby; this can make a massive difference in the quality of the magic performed.
Recommendation – Word-of-mouth is one of the best forms of advertising for any business, including magicians. If someone has taken the time to recommend a magician they have seen then chances are they are good. Similarly, reading testimonials and online reviews of magicians can give an insight into their skill level and satisfaction of previous clients.
