Let me tell you a story…
As part of our job, we’re a part of a LOT of online magician communities.
We want to know what you think, what you want to buy, and what interests you most.
We’ll spend hours scrolling through discords, Facebook groups, and forums alike.
And one thing we always think is hilarious is when we find hate about us.
(because you know the people involved have NO idea we’re watching it all unravel with a bag of popcorn)
Here’s one feed we found recently:
Random kid: “This is so random, but I hate The Daily Magician!”
Other random guy: “Yeah, but they do have good customer service!”
Other person: “Amazing idea, poor execution!”
After that, the conversation continued talking about our most recent offers that they’d BOUGHT from us.
It’s kinda funny.
Because we LOVE the hate.
It’s like the saying goes: “You may not like me, but you do know about me!”
In our eyes, if you don’t have haters – you’re doing something wrong.
The worst thing people can be towards you is indifferent, right?
It’s like people who hate on everything Ed Sheeran does and whine about how much of a bad singer he is.
(don’t worry we’re NOT comparing ourselves to the legendary status of this man, it’s just an example)
The fact that you’re talking about him, clearly shows he did something right.
And in the case of these randoms, they might not like us, but they do know about us and they have bought our stuff! In our head, that’s completely okay!
You might not like us – but you can’t deny we’ve got some STINKING good deals.
Like the one we’re running at the moment…

That’s precisely why I’ve put together this guide. We’re about to explore three magic forums that truly break the mold. So, sharpen your curiosity, and let’s unravel the marvels within.

Magic Forum N1. Magic Cafe
The Magic Café isn’t just a forum; it’s an innovative experience crafted with the charm and ambiance of a mystical coffee shop. This forum serves as a haven for magic enthusiasts and professionals, inviting them to sit down at its virtual tables and indulge in rich conversations and exchange secrets of the trade.

- Expansive Topics: Whether it’s close-up, stage magic, mentalism, or cardistry, every niche and corner of magical interest finds a home here.
- Resource Richness: The forum acts as a comprehensive repository of reviews, event information, and tips for magicians at all skill levels.
Extensive Library of Threads: The sheer volume of threads can be overwhelming, but it’s a testament to the community’s active engagement and willingness to share knowledge.
Peer-to-Peer Support: Newcomers and seasoned professionals exchange advice, offering a collaborative environment that’s hard to find elsewhere.
Commercial Corner: A place for creators to sell and magicians to buy, the latest magic products are often discussed and dissected here.
- Navigation Can Be Cumbersome: The depth of content means users may need to sift through numerous threads to find relevant information.
- Dated Design: The website’s retro aesthetic might not appeal to all, especially those used to more modern forum layouts.
The Magic Café is an invaluable hub for magicians craving community connection and a deep dive into the magical arts. It provides:
- A platform for learning and sharing within a broad range of magical disciplines.
- A meeting ground for debate, discussion, and the discovery of new ideas and tricks.
- Access to a seasoned community for networking, advice, and feedback.
Whether you’re a hobbyist looking to perform your first trick or a pro refining your craft, The Magic Café offers a rich menu to satisfy your magical appetite. Just be prepared to spend some time exploring — the depth of content is as vast as the art of magic itself.
Did you know?
I recently had an ‘interesting’ experience with an infamous magic forum…
(I won’t name any names, but it happens to rhyme with ‘the magic flafe’)
We dropped the founder of the site a message inquiring about his advertising rates.
Just your standard, run of the mill, business owner inquiry.
Here’s what he said:
“With our membership growing to well over 69,000 registered members (plus thousands who are not officially registered but visit daily) and some six million (6,000,000) posts (articles), our traffic stats are impressive. We average over 25 million hits a month, or 200 to 300 thousand page views per day (Page views – not just hits!)”
Now, isn’t that something…
Sounds good, right?
(…maybe even TOO good?)
See, as something of a ‘hobbyist’ web developer, I happen to know of more than a few site analysis tools that will tell you, with a pretty solid degree of accuracy, exactly how many visits a site REALLY gets.
One of these, a very reputable service, is called ‘similarweb.’
I decided to drop this forum into Similarweb.
432.74K visits a month.
(Aka, a mere 1.7% of the ‘25 million’ promised.)
Anyway, I have no idea what the ‘endgame’ of wildly exaggerating their website visits was.
Especially considering that 400k is nothing to sniff at.
I certainly don’t.
And after we politely pointed out the above to the site owner, he decided to do the time tested strategy called ‘say nothing and don’t reply.’
Anyway, no real lesson here.
Just figured you’d find it interesting to get a peek at what can sometimes go on ‘behind the curtain.’
And if you want numbers you CAN rely on, try this on for size:
Karl Fulves’ ‘Self Working Card Tricks’ has 72 astonishing routines packed into a single, low cost, volume.
Now, this particular number IS true—and you can verify that fact yourself by getting it shipped to you ‘mucho rapido’ from the affiliate link below:

the importance of magic forums
A few days ago we were listening to an interview with Oculus founder Palmer Luckey!
During that interview he said something we found very interesting, it went a little like this…
“Being in the right forums, at the right time, with the right people – is something I consider crucial to success. Always search out the best online forums!”
He’s 100% correct about this.
There’s nothing like an online forum filled with the best people in your industry because there’s something about forums that allow people to actually share useful information.
Just think about the number of times you were searching for something on google and a forum answered your question!
We hope with our recent Discord launch that we can create an online magic forum that will become completely invaluable to you.
For those of you that don’t know what Discord is – it’s a free online platform that can work like a magic forum, where people can chat, jam, share ideas, make friends and get a real sense of community.
We know it’s hard for magicians to get in contact with other magicians, so please, come join us!
And while you’re at it, we’ll give you the chance to win $867 worth of magic and a LIFETIME membership to Magic Mastery
