What's interesting about this directory is that it allows you to see a ton of different magicians' websites, allowing you to pick and choose and make the best website for yourself.
Here's a list of things you can learn from these magicians' sites:
- Spend the money and get a real web address. For example, David Caserta's web address is http://www.angelfire.com/ma/magicdave/, which is just not professional. He'd be much better off with magicdave.com, don't you think?
- Make sure your page loads quickly. If that means deleting all of those stupid Flash movies you have before your page loads, then do it! For example, Craig Stone (who break the first rule and has a web address that's too compliacted) has an animated intro and then another one when the first intro is over and the page itself is loading. Don't waste your potential clients' time.
- Don't put too much crap on your page. SIMPLE is the key word. That's why I love sites like Ryan Oaks' and David Olivers'.
I'll have some more tips for you tomorrow. Please e-mail me me suggestions or magic sites (really good or really bad) to email@example.com - I'd love to get more input for the next post!
