From weddings to private parties, close-up magicians have taken over the entertainment sector and are showing no signs of slowing down. Magic has
become the choice for many customers who seek to add good clean fun to their event’s proceedings.
However, with so many magicians offering their magical services for all, customers are left quite confused with the choices. And many a times, they end up hiring a magician who is not only an amateur but also someone who doesn’t provide a quality performance.
So how do you hire a good magician when searching for the right entertainment for your party? For that, Noel Qualter is here to help.
Tips on Hiring a Good Magician
Check Your Budget
Even before you check out the Magic Circle’s website for a list of professional close-up magicians in Bedfordshire, East Sussex and Hertfordshire, the first thing you need is a good budget to help tide you over. Calculate the amount you need for food and beverages and keep a small substantial sum aside in case you need some money for emergencies. The funds you are left with is your entertainment budget which should be more than enough to help you narrow down your choices.
Ask Your Friends
You can choose to ask your friends or family members about any recommendations they might have. Many a times, magicians give out their business cards at the end of their performances. So if your friend or family member has been to one of their performances, not only will they be able to provide you with a reference but will also be able to give you a good review.
Follow Your Instincts
When dealing with a professional, follow your instincts with regards to their behaviour. Are they avoiding any of your questions? Or is their advertisement showing them as less experienced than you originally thought? If so, then approach with caution. Looks and presentation matter for a professional magician, so if they don’t impress you from the get go, you can’t count on them to wow the crowd later.
A professional magician will always have a strong online presence. Many magicians have websites where you can easily go and check their style online. These websites also give you a chance to read through the testimonials and watch their performances as well, since many magicians offer video samples to convince you of their abilities. Watching their videos can give you a chance to see the standards your potential magician reaches for.
Hire a Full Time Magician
The reason why professional magicians give such memorable performances is because they have to. Professional magicians work through word-of-mouth and referrals, so they need to make all their performances count in order to book the next gig. Whereas those who only perform magic as a hobby on the weekends or as a hobby tend to go the wrong way since they don’t have to worry about their next paycheck. But for a professional, they dedicate themselves to the craft fully in order to provide a good show.
