About a month ago I was hired to perform at a convention in Las Vegas. Christie Brinkley was in attendance to promote one of her products, and I had the opportunity to perform some magic for her, and in the process I picked up a really powerful marketing lesson. The implementation of this one idea can have an immensely positive effect on both your business and life. Check out the video, and leave a comment below. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

In the last few months I’ve had a recurring conversation with colleagues and coaching clients regarding the topic of the economy and businesses that are doing poorly. The truth of the matter is that the economy is doing well. If you’ve been in business for over ten years, then you know what it was like before the great recession when everyone was doing great. If your business is doing poorly today, then you’re doing something wrong. You’re probably doing business the same way you were eight years ago.
The world is a much different place than it was eight years ago. Most of the social media and the mobile devices that are so common today, didn’t even exist. People connect and communicate very differently than they did back in 2007. This video goes into more detail on how to connect with your target market and grow your business.
On January 5, 2015 I posted a video on this blog titled Ringing In The New Year In New Orleans. I also posted it in the blogs on my magic websites www.LouSerrano.com and www.LouSerranoMagic.com. It’s a video where I share my recent leisure trip to the Big Easy. It has nothing to do with marketing or my magic business.
A friend and fellow magician asked why I posted the video? It obviously takes a considerable amount of effort to edit and post the video. How could this video help in promoting my business?
It got me thinking. What’s rather obvious to me isn’t always obvious to others. The same goes for you. There are things you know that you probably take for granted that can be enormous revelations to other people.
It’s a commonly accepted idea that all things being equal, and given the choice, people would rather do business with others they know,… Continue reading

Yesterday I sent out my snail mail monthly newsletter, and it went out to 600 clients that were in my database. I invested $300 to mail out the newsletters, and within 24 hours people started receiving the newsletters and I received my very first booking from the mailing.
Last month I sent out a newsletter to the same 600 people for the same investment of $300, and over the course of a month, it created $6800 worth of income. That’s a $6500 profit on that one investment. That’s in addition to all of the other things I do to market my business. That’s just one strategy at work.
And it got me thinking. If I can share with you one key idea that could grow your business exponentially, this is what it would be.
If you want to grow your business, you have to become visible.
If you want to be your industry’s best… Continue reading
Recently, I’ve been working with a good friend and fellow magician on a show that we plan on showcasing in the near future. It ’s a self-produced show where we’ll be renting a theater and publicizing it to the general public.
My initial plan was to weave in my existing show into his show, and create a show that would combine both of our talents. My fellow performer had the idea to create something truly special, and has been working on completely new routines and effects. After seeing his initial efforts, I was blown away by the magic he had created. His routines truly looked like magic, and were far better than I had initially thought he would produce.
It was a wake up call for me. It’s forcing me to look at my own show, and step up my game. It’s forcing me to look at my tried-and-true routines that I’ve been performing for years, and explore how I… Continue reading

I believe the most effective way to bring attention to your business, products, services, mission, or cause is to speak in front of groups of people. Whether you’re a CEO, small business owner, professional speaker, coach, consultant, entertainer, or sales manager, we all have to get in front of groups to give a presentation. People like to follow leaders, and people who speak confidently in public are viewed as leaders.
In this video I share a key idea that can pave the way to speaking with confidence.
Please leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts. If you can also share this video, I’d greatly appreciate it!

There are three main areas which we need to focus on in building our business, which I call ACR – Attraction, Conversion, & Retention. First we have to attract the right customers to us, then we must convert prospects into paying customers, and finally we must retain them so they invest in our products and services over and over again.
The following idea has been the cornerstone of my success, and has provided the most value to the success of my business over the years. Retaining customers is far easier, more cost-efficient, and less labor-intensive than acquiring new customers.
In this video I share with you one simple idea that will start the process of building relationships with your customers, so they come back and buy from you again and again.
To your success!
