SEM & SEO a topic for MizMeliz with #GuruChats Wed Nov 22nd 2017

Posted on November 20th, 2017 by & filed under Events, Everything Miz Meliz, Twitter Chat

This week I have been asked to participate in #GuruChats, a bi-monthly event on Twitter for startups, small businesses, digital marketers, graphic designers, web designers and design creatives. I am uber excited to be involved with this amazing organization and I look forward to the chat. I love Twitter chats because they help me to get to know the real people behind the profiles on social media platforms. I a learn, make friends (not just “build relationships”) and I have had the opportunity to express my opinions and share my knowledge and experience with other people around the world in a way that I never thought possible. And you can, too!

Here is the plan for the chat:

Once your business website is up and running, the real challenges and opportunities start. You want to target and convert customers, while be in the good books of search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing as well. So how do you do this? In this #GuruChats we’ve invited Elena Terentyeva to give us the lowdown on how small businesses and startups can use SEO and SEM to optimize their online presence, boost their reach and garner customers through traffic.  

Elena Terentyeva is Product Marketing Manager at SEMRush, an SEM/SEO company. She also has extensive experience in public relations, content, finance and broadcast journalism.

Join us on #GuruChats to discuss “My SEM, My SEO, My Business”, scheduled on Wednesday 22 November 2017 at 11:00 AM EST (8AM PST/3PM GMT).

Some of the topics they will be discussing are:

  • search engine optimization and marketing
  • keywords
  • outsourcing
  • algorithm updates


If this is your first time on a Twitter chat here are some guidelines you might find useful:

1. You may use to follow our chat by using the hashtag #GuruChats in the search bar or you can use Tweetdeck, Tweetchat or any other Twitter aggregators to simultaneously interact with participants and follow the chat, again searching for #GuruChats.

2. Since people will be following the chat even way after the scheduled hour, be sure to include the hashtag #GuruChats when you comment or answer a question or interact with tweeters.

3. Twitter restricts users by the number of characters you can use in each tweet. This means you’ll have to condense your idea or thoughts within a 140-280 characters limit. A smart way to go about this is pre-draft your answers or use visual aids, such as an image.

4. On the day of the chat be sure to log in 5-10 minutes before the scheduled time to get ready and be prepared for any glitches.

5.Your host at #GuruChats will start off by launching questions one by one specific to the topic in this order Q1, Q2, Q3 etc. You may answer the questions as they are posted or schedule your answers according to the time they’re posted. Mark your answers as A1, A2, A3 etc. to correspond to the respective question numbers so people will know which question you’re answering to.

6. Feel free to interact with other participants, give tips, ask questions, answer questions or any kind of knowledge you feel like sharing during the chat. Be sure to add #GuruChats with your every tweet.

7. Best tip: Be yourself and have fun!

Looking forward to see you there!

Black Belt Selling Tinsel Town Interview Featuring Anna Scheller @SchellerAnna

Posted on April 18th, 2016 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, See the Video on YouTube, Tinsel Town Live 2016, Workshops and Webinars

Did you know that when my kids were small, I practiced Karate? Yep – sparring, grappling, the whole thing. I was even a sempei (assistant instructor!) I had a pretty good round house kick, too! Hi-yah!

I also have a little bit of a background in sales. I was a retail sales manager and I studied business and marketing in college. When I worked as an executive administrative assistant at a large bank, I attended sales management training. Interesting. You are wondering what does that have to do with Karate, Miz Meliz?

Well, I never thought the two would come together until I met my new friend, Anna Scheller. Anna is an author, speaker, trainer, and coach. She is the host of Sales Mastery on the Amazing Women of Power radio show. She just published a new book and is launching a new training program. Guess what the principles of self development and entrepreneurship Anna is gifted in. Go on, guess!

Everyone who signs up for Anna’s newsletter between now and Friday, April 29, 2016 will have a chance for a free seat in the program.

If you know Anna, you might not have guessed that she has a Black Belt in Taekwondo. Having a background in sales training, she naturally combines the two in her new program, Black Belt Selling. (I know, I gave it away in the title of this blog post! But you will be glad I did, because I am willing to bet you will remember that and want to Google Black Belt Selling!)

Don’t miss this episode of Tinsel Town Tonight! Especially if you have an interest in martial arts and entrepreneurship or sales mastery. I will interview Anna live on Tuesday, April 19, 2016  at 6:00 PM, Pacific Time.

Discipline, Confidence, Strength, and Leadership. I believe these are tools that we all should know. . .

That’s what this is about, baby!

Anna Scheller

Anna enjoys reading, spending time with her family, and practicing taekwondo.


“I am passionate about helping people achieve their dreams by growing their income through sales training and business coaching.”

In May 2016, Anna will be leading a four week program called Black Belt Selling. In this program, she helps people develop the qualities they need to push through the blocks that keep them from closing more sales.

Everyone who signs up for Anna’s newsletter between now and Friday, April 29, 2016 will have a chance for a free seat in the program.

Tinsel Town Tonight featuring Jennifer Quinn @JennyQ @TenMiniTT

Posted on February 22nd, 2016 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Tinsel Town Live 2016

A Story of Two Bloggers Who Grew Up to Be Live Streamers…

Awhile ago (before Blab even) I asked Jennifer Quinn if she would like to be a guest on my show, Ten Minutes in Tinsel Town. Her answer was, “Sounds like fun, but – why me?”

Here is why:

IMG_1078Jennifer’s blog impressed me. She is an excellent writer. She is a gifted poet. She seemed personable, caring, and fun. We had a lot in common, both being bloggers and in a tribe together on Triberr. At that time I was mainly interviewing other bloggers. I told her that I believe we have similar views and I wanted to connect with like-minded people. We agreed to set a date to do the show.

On Jenny wrote…

“Your soul whispered to mine…remember to live.”

Flash-forward to today. Now we are both doing interview shows on Blab and love live streaming and social media. We have a blast snapping and Instagramming, Tweeting, Pinning, and sending waves on Anchor! You must follow JennyQ everywhere, if you aren’t already! She will lift your spirits with her bright smile every time!

I am super excited to finally be interviewing this Total Rock Star of the InterWebs!!!

Jennifer Quinn (@JennyQ)

Show Notes

I asked Jenny what she loves to do when she isn’t Live Streaming and being a hotshot social media Goddess. She said, “I like to hike, walk & bike along the river – Boise Greenbelt. I enjoy dancing, karaoke, reading, and connecting with people. I love to hang out with my family. I like to not cook.”

See! I told you we had lot in common! I need to find out how she gets out of cooking, I need some fresh ideas.


When asked what she is most passionate about, Jenny responds with, “Being the “Host of  “The Daily Q Show” – I interview people who demonstrate excellence in their field.”

Jenny loves everything about being a livestreamer. She reaches her followers through Periscope, meVee and Blab. She has even written a Free Livestream Guide download.

We will discuss:

  • Livestreaming and it’s effect on personal growth
  • pursuit of excellence
  • self-development

Who Does “Social” Work For? Tinsel Town Tonight @JonathanTripp @TenMiniTT

Posted on January 22nd, 2016 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Tinsel Town Live 2016

I met Jonathan on my favorite live streaming ap,  He is a nice person who is helping people navigate the business of social media and content creation.  What does that mean? Well, it means that Jonathan is doing for entrepreneurs and businesses what I do for people in my life coaching and mindfulness classes. We both like to help people…to mentor, motivate, and inspire.  Jonathan shows integrity as he speaks from the heart. He is passionate about live streaming and connecting people. That is why I like him. You will too!

Who Does “Social” Work For?

Jonathan Trip makes social work for you! Meet him on Tinsel Town Tonight when I interview him about social media, live streaming, start ups, and cooking!

Show Notes:

Jonathan says, “I love cooking – but can’t bake to save my life.”    We will definitely talk about that! Father of five, Jonathan works from home and balances sharing the responsibilities of taking care of his little children with his wife, while he conducts his online and live streaming business. He loves coffee and he needs it as he works tirelessly to achieve all of his intentions.

He has a background in property management services, non-profit organizations, and small business. He feels that his experience has given him the ability to personalize project management from inception to execution.  He strongly believes in leveraging motivation and mentorship to create diverse professional teams while leading by example.

“Okay, I know it sounds weird, but I think teaching and talking about social media is fun.”

Miz Meliz and Lisa FlowersShow Notes

Lisa Flowers – What do you like to do for fun?

For the last five years, I’ve been in school full-time while working full-time and holding down 3 part-time jobs. So, I really haven’t done a lot of fun things. But I do spend time with my son. He just turned nine and is a lot of fun. We go to the beach, park, watch movies, etc. He is my light and joy.

What I would really like to starting doing again is hosting dinner parties at my house. I did this when I lived in DC and it was really fun with a great group of all sorts of people.

And, I’ve been known to go Salsa dancing from time to time! 😉

flowers picWhat do you want to talk about on Ten Minutes in Tinsel Town?

Using social media for influence and how my adventure to Nigeria started with a Tweet!

In the last year and half, I’ve traveled to Malaysia and twice to Nigeria. My recent trip to Nigeria was to present at Social Media Week Lagos. My passion is helping companies find and use their online voice for influence, growth, and simply starting conversations. As mentioned, my first adventure to Nigeria started with a tweet! So, Twitter is one of my favorite platforms.

Miz Meliz and Lisa FlowersR. Mordant Mahon – What do you like to do for fun?

  • I am passionate about helping others be Awesome and Level Up their lives.
  • Fear / Failure – overcoming/embracing both for Success
  • I have been Clean & Sober almost 12 years
  • Anything Self-helpy, really.

All About R. Mordant Mahon:

R. Mordant Mahon’s love of travel and connection came early. Born in Karachi, Pakistan to a future British flamenco dancer and a Greek merchant marine, and adopted at birth by a family in the State Department, he was a true globetrotter by the age of 8. Comfortable in many cultures, he tours internationally and around the USA, sharing his wit and wisdom with those ready to take steps towards the Positive.

In his mid-20s, Mordants co-founded the improv-comedy storytelling troupe known as the Tortuga Twins. Outrageously unpredictable, these three “twins” present a variety of audience-interactive tales including Robin Hood,Captain Morgan and the Island Queen, Swordfighting & Stupidity to name a few! With a background in street performance, the internationally renowned (yes, Canada counts) Tortuga Twins have thrilled audiences at theme parks, festivals, and private events alike.

R. Mordant Mahon is a Success Freak. With 3500+ live comedy performances via his “mild-mannered” day job, Mordant’s passion to Help Others Be Awesome has motivated him to use his powers for good. Author, podcaster, vlogger—he engages his energetic sense of humor and creative coaching style, inspiring others to level up their lives. Whether entertaining and edifying on his comedic motivational show, “Success Freaks,” or challenging people to dance outside their comfort zones via galvanizing speeches, Mordant gives both mind and spirit something to chew on while putting enough laughter in your heart to make you smile out loud.
