Meet Jared Gale! With 67 bookings so far he is one of our top booked children magicians on Poptop. In just under 8 months he has received 30 bookings, with many of these from Instant Quotes!

Instant Quote has been live for just over two months and so far we have seen massive success with the bookings received and a dramatic increase in conversion rates for suppliers. 

We asked Jared about his experience with Poptop and the Instant Quote feature. Check out his response below.

I love using Poptop. It’s easy and Poptop provides the clients directly to me, rather than me having to go out and find them!

How did your love for magic start?

I’ve been doing magic ever since I was a child. I got given a magic set at some point, either for a birthday or Christmas present! My Grandma says she remembers me coming in with a top hat and wand when I was only 3! I don’t remember the first ever trick I learned, but it would have been from this set, I specifically remember a trick where a small yellow ball disappeared and reappeared in a blue plastic ‘vase’. I’m sure many people reading this have seen this trick in a magic set!

How have you found using Poptop to gain new clients?

I love using Poptop. It’s easy and Poptop provides the clients directly to me, rather than me having to go out and find them!

Why do you like being a children’s magician?

I’ve always liked working with children. I perform for both adults and children. Children can be a much tougher audience (contrary to most people’s beliefs) but it’s a lot of fun, high energy and keeps me on my toes, every party will always be different as children are more unpredictable!

What do you think of the new feature Instant Quotes? 

Instant quote has really changed the way Poptop works and I think it gives a great experience for the clients. They can get the booking done much quicker without having to wait for all the responses from suppliers and they will have one less thing to worry about. From a suppliers perspective, it makes the PopTop system much easier than it was before and it almost looks after itself!

You are now receiving bookings from the new system, what do you think of the process? 

It’s great having the bookings coming in without having to respond to the quote requests myself.

If you could describe Instant Quote in three words, what would they be?

Simple, easy and effective.

Which event do you consider your biggest accomplishment to date?

I can’t think of a particular event, but I quite often think about how amazing it is when I get to an amazing venue, or meet some amazing people.

Since starting performing magic, I’ve been to some inspiring places, including a wedding where they hired a national park to themselves! Over the years performed at many events in front of celebrities, footballers, a prime minister, billionaires, and I often think how strange it is that I wouldn’t be in the same room as these people if it wasn’t for magic!

Also, create your Instant Quote packages, it saves a lot of time and energy which you can focus elsewhere in your business!

What advice would you give to budding magicians on Poptop?

Make sure you’ve done a few professional bookings before going on Poptop, if you’re inexperienced you may get some bad reviews that will damage your profile for future bookings.

Price at your level of experience, I often see beginner magicians charging the same price as someone that’s been doing magic professionally for 30+ years. I like to be reasonably priced, so the client gets real value for money, rather than charging as much as I could do.

Also, create your Instant Quote packages, it saves a lot of time and energy which you can focus elsewhere in your business!
