Social Media Tips From A Young Entrepreneur?


Young entrepreneur shares experiences, social media tips..

The traditional route was never for Daryl Garcia.



Garcia, 24, has always done things his way. After dropping out of college in 2014, Garcia created his own event promotions website When In Guam.

For the past several years, Garcia has worked as an entrepreneur. The jack-of-all-trades does graphic design, event coordinating and social media marketing for Crook Guam, Colosseum Guam and One Punch Media.

He’s organized everything from big concerts to club parties, including this year’s Holi Festival, Massive Music Spotlight, Pitch Black night at the W; and concerts for Fat Joe, Trinidad James, J Stash and Adrian Marcel.

The young Filipino entrepreneur also makes time for his passion for music. He gigs every Wednesday at Mosa’s Joint with his band “All In,” where he does lead vocals and guitar. He’s also the lead singer and guitarist for the local music duo “Daryl G & Noni Spumoni.”




On top of his busy schedule, Garcia manages his family business: the Agat DVD store RJDJ Movie Plus, which his family has owned since he was in the fifth grade.

Juggling a bunch of projects might seem like a stressful nightmare to some, but Garcia’s motto is to take it one step at a time.

“I always think: what do people need right away? I focus on business first, and music and personal stuff last,” he said. “I try not to think too far into the future. I focus on the task at hand and smaller tasks, so I don’t stress.”

Part of what made Garcia want to drop out of college was that school was harder for him in some ways, compared to his classmates. As a young adult, Garcia realized he had dyslexia, which makes it more difficult for him to read.

“My mind works differently,” he said. “I’m more of a visual learner.”




Garcia shines in creativity and can learn easily just by watching others.

When playing guitar, he can watch someone play the chords, then pick up a song easily without having to read sheet music.

Most of the important skills Garcia uses in his day-to-day life are self-taught, or by watching videos online. He learned how to do graphic design and social media marketing through “university of YouTube,” he jokes.

Getting good at graphic design, music and social media marketing took hours of researching other people’s methods and lots of practice.

With social media work, Garcia stays up-to-date on the latest apps, and sets up clients’ social media accounts to help boost their businesses.

"For people who want to start their own social media marketing companies, Garcia has some practical tips:

--Do research: look up social media marketing, see what’s trending, and research which apps are best to use for your client and market.
--Think about what other people want, not yourself. When you’re doing graphic design, you have to create something that catches people’s eyes, and isn’t just what you want to see.
--Learn from the successes of others: when learning marketing in general, look to big media companies as examples. See what they do and what works for them. Emulate what they do that’s successful.."
