Last week, I published an article about "Free Woofle Dust." The amazing little promotional product you can make for pennies, but that can generate thousands of dollars in new shows for you.
I mentioned Dean Hankey's product, "Invisble Dust." I have found an individual that bought Mr. Hankey's program and is now selling "Invisible Dust" online.
Jason Christopher has "Invisible Dust" for sale at http://www.bookjasonchristopher.com/tricks.htm
For a few dollars, he will send you your packet. This is the Dean Hankey packet. So if you wish to see Hankey's artwork and copy, you can do so without spending $97.00
Buying a packet of "Invisible Dust" from either of this fine gentleman does not give you permission to reproduce Hankey's materials. You will need to buy a license from him in order to do this.
But, you can see how he put his together. You may get ideas from his product that will enable you to produce your own Woofle Dust give-away.
Personally, I found his insert copy very interesting, but totally irrelevant. he has written a little story about rabbits in dust mines. Lots of cute puns, but it adds no real value to the product.
When I created my own "Woofle Dust," I put 2 magic tricks on the insert. Now, the person who has the Woofle Dust can actually use it to do magic. I also included an article about the history and use of Woofle Dust.
It is a great give-away and I can even promote it as a mini-magic kit. I added real value to the novelty.
When creating your own promotional products, you want to add value. You want the item to be something they will show to others. You want it to be practical and not just something to gather dust. (That would be visible dust, not the invisible variety.)
Giving away a bookmark? Great, it is useful and has value, but if you are doing reading shows, add the Dewey Decimal System to it. Doing Gospel Magic, list the books of the Bible in order on the bookmark. Then it is double useful.
Use your imagination, you can develop your own promotional products, unique to your business and memorable.
As a special gift to my readers, I am offering my "Magic Woofle Dust" artwork to you at no cost. Send me an email and I will send the artwork as a PDF. You can add your own contact information and make as many as you need. No licensing fees. I will also gladly answer your questions on how to best use "Magic Woofle Dust" to build your business.
If you want an actual hardcopy of the item, mail $2 to cover my modest costs and I will rush one out.
Again, my Woofle Dust give-away and Dean Hankey's "Invisible Dust," are two separate and unique products. You may reproduce mine, but if you get a copy of his, you must have a license to reproduce it.
