Written Podcast Transcription:
Jacob: Hello everybody, this is your host, Jacob Sapochnick. You’re listening to the Enchanting Lawyer Podcast. This is a show where we interview the most inspiring entrepreneurs and business owners who share their strategies, their ideas, and help us do our job much better.
These past few weeks I’m really interested in new technologies and things that help us make ourselves more visible. We talked about live streaming before. This week I’m going to go back to videos. I think videos are still huge but most people are not doing them correctly especially attorneys. I get a lot of emails, a lot of inquiries about this topic so today I have one of the top guys in the field. Not only he’s great at what he does but he’s also an awesome human being and I’m very honored that he’s here on the show. Today we have Owen Hemsath.
Owen is the president and founder of Videospot, a video production or web marketing company based here in Oceanside, California. Before he started Videospot he spent more than 10 years working high-level sales and marketing organizations all over the state. He is an entrepreneur. He understands video and he understands marketing. I’m honored to have Owen in the show.
Owen: Hey, thank you for that great introduction. I feel like next time we should add more padding to it like, you know, he is once scaled the Appalachian Mountains and gone spelunking in the rivers of Zimbabwe, you know what I mean. But thank you for that introduction. I’m thrilled to be here, man. This is awesome.
Jacob: Thanks, Owen. Well, usually what I do is I give a little brief intro and then I let the guest tell more and then you can tell us all about your expeditions.
We briefly chatted before the show and I think that I’m very excited because there’s so many things that are happening in the past few months. We talked about live streaming and we may talk about that as well. We talked videos. It seems so overwhelming and I think that we’ll be able to put some order here and kind of prioritize and talk about the coolest things that people can do. Why don’t you briefly tell us about yourself so that listeners can get kind of a glimpse into who you are and what you do and then we’ll kind of dive in.
Owen: Yeah, I’m happy to. I appreciate that.
I am the president and the founder of a company called Videospot. We are a video marketing and YouTube marketing company. That’s our sole focus. I think mostly we’re known for the YouTube marketing course that we provide where we show businesses how to use YouTube as a profit center, right? We don’t really focus on “This is how you become the next big YouTube sensation.” That’s not really what we do. We focus more on “Here’s how you make $5,000 a month from YouTube selling product, services, affiliate links, whatever.” Everybody has their own goals.
