In the era of COVID-19, magic clubs and organizations are scrambling to host virtual meetings. CAM has a simple solution for your next magic club meeting. Here's a step-by-step guide for magic clubs.



How to Host a Virtual Magic Club Meeting with CAM



Step 1. Write a compelling headline for your meeting

Make this sound enticing, focus on one topic. Peak people's interest. The headline is the first and often only thing people will read. Grab attention!


Examples:

  • "Learn 6 Virtual-Friendly Magic Tricks"

  • "Special Lecture! Guest Name Presents Lecture Title"

  • "How to structure your virtual magic show"

Step 2. Write a short description

Tell your members in one or two sentences what the event is about. Write using an inviting, conversational tone that speaks directly to your members in plain language. Tell them why they should attend. Always end the description with a call-to-action


Example:

"Our November meeting is all about getting started with performing virtual magic shows. You'll learn all the essentials, tools, software and tips for increasing engagement. If you are already performing virtually, you'll learn six tips for taking your virtual shows to the next level. Join us on DATE at TIME!"
