Hello all,

I am currently sending out my brochures to past clients and wanted to do some kind of prediction trick, along the lines of I send in an envelope with my promotional package sealed with a stamp (wax), saying something like the next time you book me please gather the team around and I will show you an amazing trick with this envelope, its the old curiosity killed the cat dodge.

My question to the knowledgeable members here is what is A:strong enough B: practical, workable?

Thanks for taking the time to read, its appreciated

If you propose doing an "amazing trick" with the envelope, it will hardly be seen as a prediction, or even mentalism for that matter. I could be wrong, but I get the impression that you don't perform mentalism, so you may find other forums on the Café to be more helpful to you.

Also my own thinking is that if this is going to past clients such a gimmick should not be necessary. If your past performance isn't enough to get a repeat booking I doubt a stunt like this will improve your chances. You also need to consider that some will simply open the envelope out of curiosity and so the contents would need to be adequate to account for this possibility. All in all I can see more reasons not to do it than I can see to do it.

I can help you and I will if you'll permit me. I currently send out HooDoo boxes to radio stations I'd like to perform at. You could do this with past clients easily. The boxes could be included with your promo and should not be opened until you have them on the phone. When they open the box ( with great anticipation I can assure you) you can perform several magic miracles with the items inside over the phone... BUT there is one special artifact that you must be present to perform... Something Amazingly Magical .... But they must book you to see that one...!!!! Smile
