From Magic to Marketing: An Enthralling Journey with Tim Parkin

As Seen On

Embarking on a journey from the mystical realm of magic to the dynamic world of tech innovation, and finally to the intricacies of marketing, Tim Parkin, a top-tier SEO-certified marketing consultant and advisor, has crafted a career path that is as captivating as it is unique. Armed with card magic, tech-savviness, and marketing prowess, Parkin navigates through the industry with a vigor and energetic enthusiasm seldom seen.

As a teenager, Tim Parkin developed a fascination for card magic. His interest was not fleeting. It evolved into a hobby that helped him socially in high school and college. Performing tricks in front of awestruck peers was a powerful icebreaker. Today, he regards magic as more than a fun pastime—it’s a networking tool that enables him to connect to others in a relatable and memorable way.

Amongst the myriad magic tricks in his repository, “twisting the aces” holds an esteemed position. He jovially recollects a playful anecdote involving the trick and a playful bet with his wife. This story reveals his persona beyond professional labels, highlighting a playful side which resonates with us all, reminding us that successful business figures are also humans with shared experiences.

As a young adult, Parkin got involved in the gaming industry, where he combined his technological acumen and creative flair to design and develop games. The technical challenges he encountered in game design set the stage for his future transition into building military simulations for government projects.

Participating in military projects allowed Parkin an insider perspective on the limitations of the tech infrastructure therein. According to him, many military projects appear to lag behind the industry’s rapid advancements due to various factors, like bureaucratic restrictions, budget constraints, and oftentimes stringent operating parameters.

Yet, he credits these constraints for steering him towards simpler web and mobile apps, which quickly became a key interest area. His fascination for these streamlined digital interfaces led to technological proficiency that now plays a crucial role in his marketing expertise.

It was during his involvement in tech startups that Parkin had a profound realization. The stumbling blocks often encountered by these startups rarely had anything to do with product-related problems. The real culprit lay in how these innovative products were marketed.

His early love for magic, particularly the art of creating an illusion and surprising audiences, found its way into Parkin’s understanding of marketing. Through magic, he learned the knack of capturing and retaining the audience’s attention, a crucial aspect of successful marketing. He firmly believes that marketing is an art similar to magic—drawing the audience in and revealing the ‘magic’ within a brand or product just at the right moment for maximum impact.

Tim Parkin, the professional magician turned game developer, and current marketing consultant, brings an intriguing lens through which to view marketing. His story serves as a powerful example that often, it’s the unique blend of our experiences and interests that propels us onto paths less tread, leading to innovative thinking and redefining sectors. It is individuals like Parkin who make us realize that with passion, persistence and innovation, the line between magic and marketing can indeed become wonderfully blurred.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
