INTELLIGENT OCTOPUS serves video podcasters, YouTube channels, and course creators by editing your videos to connect as you intended.   Services include podcast management for your video podcast, and video editing for your course or one-time project.  Turn over that raw video, so you can get back to the things your business really needs YOU for!

You know your message.  You LOVE your message.

It just needs a little polish to make the impact you know it can… but with what time?

You just need an extra brain, or maybe some extra hands!  

Well, you’ve just found them.

You are so confident in the videos you are creating for your podcast or your course!  

Your message is dialed in and connecting with your people.  They are buying, learning, engaging and you’re forming a community.  But it’s getting harder to keep up with all the things it takes to keep this going.  

You know you should be more consistent… 

But it takes time!  Time you don’t feel like you have every week, or month, even when you DO batch your content.  

If only…

  • You could record your content, and <poof!> it came back a little bit later as a polished video, ready to post, with a transcript and subtitles ready.   

  • Your editor could also upload those videos for you, to YouTube or your course platform.

  • You didn’t have to think about which exact parts of your content needed to be repurposed.  Or you could decide, and they’d just make themselves! 

  • That video content could also be made into an audio podcast or audio version for your podcast, without you touching it again. 

When you hand off that raw video, you get your time back, more consistency, and professionally polished content.

Let’s Change Intention to Action.

You’ve been building your podcast or course for a while now. You know you need to put some of that time back into other parts of your business, or quite frankly, you just don’t WANT to put in the time to edit all that video anymore and you know you could use it for more things as well, like social media, emails or a blog post.  DIY was a great place to start, but it’s time for the next step.  Plus, you’re thinking about ways to make it look better or just be easier, but again… the time to learn that!

You need extra hands, extra hours or an extra brain to get all of this the way you know it could (or should) be.  

Intelligent Octopus is your “extra”.  

This is the extra time, polish and brilliance you know your message needs.  

Hand it over, 

              take a deep breath, 

                                  and take care of what you love… 

Knowing that your message is being polished and repurposed, so that your brilliance is getting out into the world consistently, increasing your visibility and opportunity!


Where would you like to start? 

Erika Jones Copywriter and Video Editor

You know all the things that SHOULD be done for your video podcast or course…

You just need someone to step into that gap and start taking over some of the things!  

My name is Erika Jones, and I’m the brains behind Intelligent Octopus.  

There was a fateful day way back in college, when I volunteered to help my InterVarsity chapter with a little drama skit.  Next thing you know, I’m being shown the only video editing suite on campus.  Most students didn’t even know it existed.   I was hooked.

After 15+ years of video editing in the corporate world and non-profit, I’ve moved into the online realm.  Not only do I know editing, but I help with uploading, show notes, transcripts, scheduling, and repurposing.  All the things in one place?!?  It’s basically podcast management or production support if it’s your course.

Yes, you are meant to have help with “all the things” for your video, and done in one place for consistency. I love being those extra hands to fill your gaps.

Those time consuming details between:

  • Your video footage and your published podcast.
  • Your rough recording and your polished course.  
  • Your idea of consistent videos and actually getting them recorded, uploaded and promoted.

I’m hear to give you the confidence to record knowing your audience will only see your gaffes when (and if!) you WANT to provide the bloopers reel.

Let’s get that polish on your raw brilliance, so that your message reaches out clearly and consistently, and helps you change your corner of the world.

She Captured the Message!

This is the first video editor that I have worked with. Erika went beyond my expectations with the branding of my videos. She framed them and added words to the video. They are professional looking and she captured the message that I needed to get out.
