Meet Alexander Reynoso, a magicpreneur based in New York City who has truly embodied the essence of turning adversity into opportunity. Like many in Manhattan during the Coronavirus pandemic, Reynoso found himself confronting unprecedented challenges. There was no way he could have known then that later, after the official ending of Covid as a primary concern, there would be a part AI and part human magicpreneur who would write as his book for the day, a short volume entitled “Ask AI Guy #58 AI Storytelling Process Change” containing ideas that could have changed his life earlier.
His in-person magic shows, like other Manhattan Magicians, were his primary source of income, had come to an abrupt halt due to social distancing regulations. However, instead of succumbing to the negative circumstances, Reynoso saw an opportunity to innovate, leveraging his expertise and the power of AI to continue his craft, while also providing a much-needed source of entertainment and engagement in a time of crisis.
His journey began with a thorough understanding of his expertise and the digital environment. Reynoso had spent years honing his skills as a magician and knew he had a unique value to offer. Understanding that his live performances were no longer feasible, he saw the potential of digital platforms and AI to deliver his magic shows in a new, engaging manner.
Reynoso first identified the AI tools that could help him transition his business online. He decided to use AI-powered video editing software to create engaging videos of his magic tricks, and AI-driven social media management tools to help him manage and optimize his online presence. He also utilized an AI chatbot on his website to interact with his audience and answer their queries.
Next, he set about creating a digital collection of his magic performances. Using the AI-powered video editing software, Reynoso was able to create captivating videos that not only showcased his tricks but also his personality, adding a personal touch that made his audience feel connected despite the virtual barrier. The software’s advanced features enabled him to include visual effects that enhanced the mystique and appeal of his performances. He did not realize then, that what he was doing was storytelling marketing.
The AI-driven social media management tools were instrumental in effectively distributing his content. By analyzing user behavior and preferences, these tools enabled Reynoso to target his content towards the right audience at the right time, increasing engagement and growing his online following.
He also used the AI chatbot to interact with his audience, answer their queries, and even take bookings for private virtual shows. This not only increased his availability to his audience but also automated his booking process, freeing up his time to focus on his performances.
To monetize his digital magic shows, Reynoso started a subscription service. Subscribers would get access to exclusive magic content, online magic classes, and even personalized magic videos. The revenue from these subscriptions became a significant source of income, replacing the earnings lost from his live performances. As small as things may be in the big picture of AI Do Good, they made a major change in his life, and there was more to come.
Throughout his journey, Reynoso never lost sight of his purpose as a magicpreneur – to inspire, entertain, and create magic. He utilized his digital platform to not only perform but also teach magic, providing free magic classes to kids affected by the lockdowns.
In conclusion, Alexander Reynoso’s story is a compelling case study of how a magicpreneur can leverage their expertise and AI to navigate a crisis and even thrive. His innovative approach not only allowed him to make a good living but also contributed positively to his community during a challenging time.
As of today, Reynoso continues to use AI to drive his magicpreneurship in New York City.
