Talking about Marketing, Tech, Business and Life!

Hello, my name is Louis and I’m a Solopreneur, Creator, Innovator, Marketer, Gamer and a Father to name a few. For those that know me well would include “Futurist” in there as well.

I started my professional journey in 1994 making and selling T-Shirts, business cards and flyers during school hours and installing car stereos for the neighborhood during non-school hours in his friends garage. Essentially I learned to hack into the available resources early in life.

While other kids were busy going to Football games, house parties and hanging out at the mall, I was in the computer lab before school, at lunch, after school and even on weekends. This was when I learned to fix computers, build websites for businesses, use Photoshop 2.5 and editing video with 2 VHS tape decks, the old school way.

I then went on to market and promote the San Diego Hip Hop music scene online from 1997 to 2006, (yes, before Social Media) while working as an intern at Relativity / Sony Records. There I worked with some of Hip Hop’s biggest names, including Kid Frost, 3-6 Mafia, Common, The Beatnuts and Bone Thugs n Harmony.

Year after year, I continued to work in the San Diego community as a caregiver, teacher, youth mentor, leader and activist. I was nominated for awards for my work developing and implementing state-wide and national broadband inclusion programs. I also had been featured on several news outlets and media publications.

Since 2012, I continue to work on several Google owned initiatives at the same time as operating an Interactive Marketing Agency and helping local businesses grow online.

Meaning, they want the majority of my time to be focused on them for the next couple of months. I'm left to weigh the pros, the cons, what would be good for my business and compensation for my time.

Who should own your domain name and other digital real estate?

So far this year I've had an unusual amount of businesses who have reached out to me for help regarding regaining ownership of their domain names and websites. They all had something in common. Digital Marketing agencies were holding their domain names for ransom. By ransom I mean, the business owners are being charged a release fee or a change [...]

SDSU Library Street View Virtual Tour

A couple years ago I got an invite to give a quote to the SDSU Library for a Street View Virtual Tour. I was super excited. As I arrived I'm greeted by some really friendly library staff who are seemingly fans of Google. As they gave me a tour and pointed out what they wanted to show on the virtual [...]
