Selling the Show is not really a "marketing" book, it's a book on what to do once the phone rings. How to win the gig and how to up-sell your show to get better fees. The information is rock solid and will definitely help you. I run a national sales team in my "day job" and I can tell you, the information is based on sales methodology that works. Sean has been in the magic business for 15 years, and has taken those sales principles and applied them to the magic. If you get this book, absorb it and apply it, you will improved your bottom line. I recommend it.
I also recommend Timothy's manuscript on Magazine Memory, it sits on my bookshelf with all my memory books - including Harry's - and each adds valuable insight. I perform Magazine Memory all the time, and I use many of the insights contained in Timothy's manuscript.
I compete in the same market as both Sean and Timothy and I can tell you - they are tough competition. They are both extremely skilled mentalists and marketers, and when someone with their track record shares information, it is definitely worth reading.
All the best.
A first post shilling something? That's *never* suspicious. Can you explain what you get that's unique?
