Who is Owen?
Owen Hemsath is a speaker and trainer experienced in topics relating to internet marketing. As president of Videospot and an outspoken Christian, Owen is often asked to speak on video & YouTube marketing, leadership, and Search Engine Optimization.
After 10 years in sales and marketing, Owen found the corporate environment stifling and hard to maneuver. Upper management resisted change and adapting to new technologies. Following an argument with his boss on the effectiveness of call-tracking and landing pages, Owen was released from his position.
He decided at that moment that the job force was not for him and launched an eCommerce website selling stun guns and tasers. He started Videospot after making a sale from a YouTube product review that he filmed in the basement of his friends store. He noted that:
“None of my SEO efforts could hold a candle to the power of the videos we put on YouTube. Sales came pouring in and I immediately went to local businesses and offered video production at $20 each.”
Today, Owen has done video work with industry leaders at North Face, LinkedIN, and Social Fresh. He’s worked with Michael Stelzner, Mari Smith, Jeremy Vest, and Ron Nash and his impressive resume has earned him invitations to speak on internet marketing and lead generation topics for Conferences, Real Estate Brokers, Insurance Companies and more.
Owen is also frequently asked to speak on notable podcasts such as Casual Fridays with Tyler Anderson and Video Marketing Madness with Ray the Video Guy.
His work has been quoted by industry leaders at CIO (a business blog) and he has been a guest contributor to SavvySexySocial.com with notable vlogger, Amy Schmittauer.
He is currently working on a Live Stream video course for Vidpow and has also hosted his own training event- the Business Video Marketing Summit with 21 of the world’s top social marketers. He is due to launch a new summit called the Small Business Success Summit in November 2014.
