With an experience of performing for all sorts of events all over the country, Chris knows who is the right fit for your particular event. So, if you’re thinking about hiring a magician for your upcoming event, here are some pro tips by Chris Michael:
Explore their Websites
The first tip explained by Chris Michael in the video is to explore the websites of the magicians you are interested in hiring. You would have an extensive choice, but to make sure you hire the right magician, explore their websites. Check their pictures and videos of the events they have covered. Scroll through to check everything and get a feel of the website. Why is it important to explore the websites? It gives you an idea, as Chris tells:
This brand can be the difference between a nice refreshing coca cola or old fashioned root beer.
Also, make sure to read the customer reviews and see how their events turned out. So, exploring the website will determine what to expect from that particular magician.
In the end “What you see is what you get” says Chris!
Have a Discussion Over the Phone
The second important tip that Chris comes up with is to talk to the magician on the phone. Have a detailed discussion with him about the event you are planning and discuss your specific goals. Magicians are entertainers and their ultimate purpose is to help your event go smooth. They customize their routines as per your objectives.
Hence, it is important to discuss your event needs and expectations. Talking to them will give you a sense of who they are, what their character is like. Is a phone call enough to give you an idea about if a magician is the right fit for your event? According to Chris “More often that not, phone calls will give you the answer.”
Discuss Your Budget Concerns with the Magician!
An important part of event planning is “budget”. You set a budget for your event for specific areas, such as food, decor, entertainment, and venue. Since you have to stay within that limit; magicians do understand your budget concerns. When it comes to entertainment, never cut the budget for this particular area. Chris explains in the video and determines what studies have revealed i-e “Entertainment is typically the most talked about piece of any event.”
Hence, if you end up hiring a cheap entertainer, he will do more harm than good. To make your event successful, entertainment is key. Hire the right magician and entertainer because “The entertainer you hire is a reflection of you and your brand” says Chris.
You would be able to make your event a talk of the town. You can be a superstar by showcasing how prestigious your brand is with exceptional quality entertainment. So, don’t cut the budget for entertainment; hire the right magician and set new standards for events to come!
