Re: Looking for Badly Designed Kids Entertainer Websites

What about displaying one's fees on the website? Good or bad idea? Personally I think its a good idea if its kids birthday parties or school assembly shows you are aiming for. Corporate, Im not so sure. Ive also seen websites whch says the fee varies between x and y, that to me is not a good idea.

E Books from a personal perspective induces impulse buying, as it's instantly available. My worst impulse buy was 'Head of shoulders illusion' at 50 quid.
But that would be good value compared to the $75 plus required for 'a lame 8-card force' (BF) on offer by Mr Harris.

Hence the quiz question, what in Magicland constitutes a 'best seller' for a book/ e book

a. 500 to 1000.
b. 1000 to 2000.
c. 2000 or more.
