New ‘joeconrad.com’ Website Upcoming

Although still in the development stage, we are very close to launching the new joeconrad.com website – and it is going to be super beautiful!

Even though our old website design served us well, it has started to look a bit dated this past year or so as the new mobile revelation took off. Our previous site design was not responsive (with the exception of this Blog) and the new upcoming design will change all that. It will re-size and will look great on any viewing medium.

Under the guidance of my lead graphic designer Marty, we are still putting the finishing touches on it (as well as implementing the programming, testing, etc). We hope to launch it in the coming weeks and of course will make an official announcement here & all relevant social media outlets.

Illusionist Joe Conrad Facebook Page

After many years of using my Joe Conrad personal profile on Facebook for promoting professional activities, we have now launched the Illusionist Joe Conrad Facebook Page.

A big thank you to all of you who have already stopped by and supported us there.  :-)

A SPECIAL NOTE: From this point forward we will be posting all relevant Illusionist Joe Conrad news & business items over on the official Facebook Page (and on the official joeconrad.com site & blog, of course), rather than on my Joe Conrad personal Facebook profile. My personal profile will be reserved for items of a personal/family nature only.

In you haven’t had a chance to stop by yet, please check it out & ‘Like‘ us. It will be very appreciated…

Opening of Philippines Production Facility

At long last (and after several years of traveling back & forth) we are happy to officially finally announce the opening of our third production facility within Asia. It is located in Metro Manila, Philippines.

A shot of our original production facility in Bangkok, Thailand.

Located within the heart of Pasay, this new facility will allow us to store additional illusions and rehearse shows accordingly (as well as have the local sales & admin offices necessary) for this hot and emerging market. We now have easy access to all the main event locations and hotels in the capital region of the Philippines.

With a larger portion of our work now happening in this Casino & Entertainment hub (second only to Macau in the region), this new & additional base will allow us to serve our clients better – while being able reduce overhead for show logistics. Also, it will allow all of our team to have a more stress-free environment with this more permanent Philippines base.

In addition to this new Philippines marketing offices and production location, Illusionist Joe Conrad still maintains our Bangkok, Thailand & USA facilities.

Lots of travel and excitement – as always!

New WordPress Theme For Blog

new-joe-conrad-blog-theme-screen-shotAt long last I have finally updated the look of this ‘Blog’ section of the JoeConrad.com website. The previous theme I tried recently had a lack of updates from the company (due to them going out of business) which caused design and technical problems for posting. Thus no new content appearing for a while!

I think this new look looks good for the Blog and is easy to view on all devices – both desktop PC’s & mobile phones. Something all entertainers and small business owners have to keep in mind when updating & designing their own personal websites.

And for those of you that care about those sort of things, the WordPress theme I am using is called Mantra. It is designed by the good people over at Cryout Creations.

Hope everyone enjoys the new look and we will keep refining things as we go along.
