I have not purchased it, but I can tell you this. I have been told about it. You will not be disappointed. He is a very talented professional magician who is very successful. He is so confident that you will be very pleased that he offers a 100% satisfaction gaurantee. Very rare for someone to offer such a gaurantee. If you want to increase your earnings, or start making money as a magician, Lou's program will do just that. However, it's not like taking steriods. You have to follow his advice and work it for it to benefit you.

If you do decide to buy it, remember me when you start making lots of money.(lol)

Lou Serrano has the Steel Ball Routine which has got rave reviews from top pro's. I don't know anything about his cups and balls though. Lou Serrano has instructions for his popular Steel Ball Routine that could be adapted for a mini cup switch. It's bold, and should be performed on the off-beat with strong misdirection.

You're mixing it up with Paul Gertner's Cups and Steel Balls

This is a sales to success package, you see them on TV for house selling and buying cheap and selling after you remodel the homes. They have them for Internet commerce sites selling all kinds of junk.

Ask yourself if you are the type of person that will sell yourself to others. Can you talk easily to strangers. Cold call (meaning to walk in a restaurant without prior arrangement to meet the owner) on potential clients and present a sale pitch or your services and how you can fulfill the businesses needs. That is what is meant by 'Taking Action'. Look at the town you live in, do you have places to sell your services. Are you willing to spend the time and money to invest in yourself. All these courses lack one thing, as for any job hunting project. They do not target market for you and give you the names and addresses of prospects to contact.

A prerequisite to this type of job is that you must have your magic all ready to go, you cannot be learning tricks while you do this. It will require working at least 10 to 12 hours a day, 6 days a week.

Click on Lou's ad copy in wmhegbli's post above. The message is exactly the same as the ads some of us have seen on late night tv: "You will certainly be successful if you follow the advice I want to sell to you." "Success Guaranteed If..." ads are highly suspect. You can see it coming: if you aren't successful, that shows you haven't followed my advice. But how do I know that I've correctly followed your advice? You know by whether you are successful (earning a SIX FIGURE income as a magician??): if you earn 6 figures you followed my advice; if you didn't earn 6 figures, you didn't follow my advice. When you see mention of a 6 figure income, you stop reading pronto. It's tacky and embarrassing.

Hi Alan,

Nowhere in my ad copy do I say anything like what you state in your above post. I offer a 100% better than your money back guarantee on the product. If the purchaser doesn't like the product for any reason, all they have to do is return it for a full refund. That is a much different guarantee from what you state in your post.

The Real Secrets is only going to appeal to people that are trying to further their knowledge on running a highly successful business as a close-uip magician. It is not a course full of "advice"; instead, it's the system I've developed over the last fifteen years to run and grow my business.

I'm certainly not trying to convince you to purchase my product, but please don't misrepresent my offer.

Respectfully,

Lou Serrano

I just now purchased Lou's course. I will be happy to write a review of it after I receive it and go through the materials.

As many of you know, I have already been a pretty successful magician in my own right. However, after a 5-year layoff (went from doing hundreds of shows a year to a handful, do to other obligations and just plain burnout), and having to nearly start over (especially during this economy), I will take all the help I can get. I also just got Jack Turk's B-Day course, and Phil Jay and Chris Dugdale's course. I figure one or two shows booked as a result from anyone of them pays for all three, so why not get them?

Having been a successful pro for 13 years, and a successful salesman (Health club memberships and radio advertising) and radio spot copywriter and producer prior to my full-time magic career, I know a thing or two about sales and marketing, so I feel I am qualified to write an informed review on all three of these programs. Further, I do not know and have not met any of the guys putting out these courses, and I had to pay for all of them, so you can be assured that my reviews will be honest and unbiased.

It'll be a few weeks, but I will review Lou's course (and the other two) for you.

I decided to go ahead and purchase this. I'm extremely happy that I did. Here is a link to my thoughts on Lou Serrano's "The Real Secrets of a Successful Close-Up Magician."

Emulating the habits and techniques (from a business perspective) of those who are already successful (in this case Lou) at achieving the goals that you desire to achieve, is an old teaching that has never gone away. There's a reason for that, it works.

It's nice when the only bad press a product gets seems to come from those who have no direct experience with it.

In my opinion, suggesting that the Kennedy style, long form sales letter has been abused and should be approached with caution, is perfectly legitimate advice. But to suggest avoiding it every time you see it, is insane.

If my goal is to run an extremely successful business which will bring in a six figure income annually, then running from people who are offering to share the techniques of how they achieved, and continue to achieve just that, would be slightly counter productive.

I don't know Lou and I just found out about his offerings here tonight. As a long time sales and marketing person, and as a long time magician who has been out of the loop for too many years now, This might be just what I need to help me get started again. I hope that I never stop wanting to learn more from those who are already successful in the fields which I love and want to be successful in myself.

I'm looking forward to placing my order soon.

Here's a toast to always learning more! Well, my kind of toast anyway Smile
Cheers all!
