There are several reasons why there is a small charge to upgrade your listing to a "Featured" listing (we aim to keep the fee as low and reasonable as possible). Here are a few of the reasons for the fee:
1. It gives you added value for your money.
We wanted to give members that pay for a featured listing good value for their money. It is similar to buying advertising on a website, except you are buying advertising for yourself. The small amount you pay gets you on top of our directory search results, makes you stand out in map search results, and gets you displayed more prominently throughout our site. You also get two extra images in your listing.This all adds up to more exposure for you, as a thank you for your monetary support.
2. It helps support The Magic Network.
Running this site is not cheap and takes a lot of time and effort. Some of the cost goes toward hosting, maintenance fees, and the cost of making improvements to the site, to keep it running smoothly for you and our clients.
3. Quality Assurance.
The fee creates a barrier to entry that ensures only Professional Magicians who are serious about getting gigs create featured listings. If everybody created a featured listing, there would be no value in having them. It helps ensure the directory retains its quality and reputation of listing high-quality, professional, and reliable magicians. It helps to prevent spammers and "dabblers" who might just create a featured listing for fun if it were free to do so.
For professionals, the fee is small and earned back in less than one gig. For dabblers, the fee is prohibitive.
Remember, we offer a 100% money back guarantee, and top customer service. If you are not satisfied with your featured listing for any reason, contact us within 30 days and we will downgrade your listing back to a regular listing and refund your money. No questions asked. We want you to be happy, that's just how we roll.
