I’m back again with another interview with a local up and coming business owner from my home town, San Diego, CA. I met with the owner of Exclusive Entourage, a local Party Bus service company that is on the rise. This young company just got established last year in 2015. Now they are taking the party bus industry by storm. In this interview we talk about what went well for them, what didn’t go so well, what were some of the growing pains, and so on. This interview should give you young business owners another persons experience. Hopefully you take that and learn from it.
My interview was with the co-owner of Exclusive Entourage, David Caballero. He is a hard working husband and father of two beautiful children. David started this party bus business on a whim of getting establish. Kind of like my Last interview with Steven Ramirez with BB’s Eco Jumps, David got his business started by word of mouth sales. Mainly just close friends and family member were serving his business.
I asked David, what was the hardest part about getting this business off the ground. His answer was how to get his business out to more people then just family and friends, which seems like a reasonable response. I fallowed up with what did he do to make that jump. his answer was short and sweet, “the internet”. He hired a guy who knew about building and ranking website on google for the local market. Right now his business just got established on the internet and he is very excited to see what to come. The great thing about this opportunity is that we all get to see how everything turns out. his business is trying to get ranked for this key phrase party bus san diego. So we can track the process to see how his rankings climb in the next couple of months.
If all goes well, then maybe you guys can hire someone like Davids guy to get your business ranking on Google.

Blog posting is something i have recently learned about and i am still learning about so if i get some things mixed, please correct me. We can all learn this together! Apparently blog commenting and post has been around for awhile now and i’m late to hear about it. Well i just recently got into the online marketing environment so bare with me.
How it goes is being able to use powerful and authoritative blogs and people are talking about and interacting with to power your website by attaching a link to your website on a blog comment. So what i understand is that there are two different ways to go about doing this.
- Posting comments on other peoples blog that is related to your niche. Must be a authoritative blog with a high page authority.
- Becoming a guest blogger for a highly authoritative blogging company

I just wanted to write this quick blog to talk about my experience with Google Adwords. I just set up a campaign today with Google Adwords and i am a bit nervous to see what the outcome is going to be. I set my budget to $20 a day. I am trying to be a little aggressive to start. This is my first experience using adwords so i am not sure what to expect.
I will be updating you guys in future days to come to let you know how everything worked out. Wish me luck!
So I’m back after one full day of using my google adwords for a business owner and here are the results. Views from the keywords-2,029. Clicks-22. Amount Spent- $23.72. I called the business owner and he said he got 3 phone calls and 2 contact forms filled out. Google also shows you how many clicks and views for each keyword phrase you I listed.
So i would call this a pretty successful campaign so far. Obviously the keywords you use really effect how many clicks and views you get. If you have tried using Google adwords before and have not this kind of success, maybe you should try switching up your keywords or have someone with a little more experience to help you out.
So what do I mean by playing in your field.
In certain aspects of business and life it is important to understand your playing field. This is especially when it comes to business if you want to be successful. let me give you an example.
If i am new and wanted open an SEO company and start advertising to businesses about what i do, my target audience is going to be small business owner who probably really don’t understand how SEO works and what it can do for their business. So i inform these small business owner on how SEO works and how it can help their business. This is a better approach then going after some big name company who has already been established and doesn’t really need your help.
So play in your League. If you are playing in the minors and just starting out, go after those small business who really don’t know much about SEO. If you are in the majors then you can afford to go after the big fish in the pond.
So this is my little Entrepreneurial tip of the day. Short and sweet. Hope you guys liked it!
