Free magic tricks can be just as effective as ones costing a great deal more. Money tricks are always popular. People love seeing tricks done with money. Why? Because everybody likes money and everybody doesn't like losing money. Just the thought that the magician might lose or damage someone's money adds a little bit of excitement right from the start.
Another thing to remember. If you borrow money from someone to do a trick, the larger the value, the better the trick can seem. It's just funnier to see someone's $20 disappear than someone's $5.
While this can be a lot of fun make sure you always return the borrowed money, undamaged and everyone else sees you do this. Losing someone's hard earned money is the fast way to becoming unpopular.
You know there's an easy way to choose which tricks you should do. If you like the trick yourself, you'll enjoy performing it and that will show through in your personality and smile which will make your audience more relaxed and they will like the trick better. So today's tip, Do something you like.
Alright, lets get the piggy bank rockin' with some money tricks.
