I got a hole in me pocket...

Hey if you get that title, you deserve a cookie. It's from one of my fave movies.

So I have been working on an idea with empty and filled pockets and lo and behold This pops up on the market. I figured it's only 10 dollars and I spent WAY more on less.

Well, the idea is solid BUT the explanation could use some more detail and photos. There are a few things I am personally confused about that needed further illustration... alas none was to be found.

Here are a few tips for those who release, well ANYTHING into the magic market, but for this example we'll stick to manuscripts. Rule #1. SPELL CHECK!! For the love of!! After that proofread it. Have someone else proofread it. Do what I do and "beta-test" your product. Give it to a few friends or other magicians you like and see what they think. They will probably catch something you did NOT.

Also, make sure that any idiots can read it and understand it. Forget that YOU know how it works. This leads to satisfied and most important, returning customers.

So in conclusion, make sure your product is easy to understand, read, and spell checked. There is (almost) no such thing as too many pictures. Hell, we live in a multi-media society!! Embed a video file or two in your pdf or document file. WE CAN DO THAT STUFF NOW!!
