Meet Mel Wakely - Business Mentor & Mindset Coach


Mel is the founder of Video Queen® 

Business Mentor & Mindset Coach For Freedom-Focused Women - Where Video Is The Vehicle For Mind-Blowing Success. Ladies! Get ready to claim your millionaire retirement 🤑


Mel is a marketer with over 25 years of "big brand" agency experience. 


Mel combines this expertise with her social media knowledge having trained with Digital Mums in 2016. 


In 2020, Mel joined the online, entrepreneur space and is a self-taught video expert.  But it wasn't easy... 6 months of hard work, persistence and inner subconscious work have allowed her to ditch her visibility fears. Now, Mel loves to show you a quicker way to leverage the power of VIDEO to supercharge your business’ growth. 


If you’re a business in the online space, video content is now a ‘must-have’ part of your marketing strategy. It’s simply the quickest and easiest way to grow the know, like & trust factor. 


People buy from people they like and as nearly all online businesses now work purely remotely via zoom, video is flipping crucial to the success of your business. 


In 2024, the cost-of-living crisis and an ever-growing online coaching market, means visibility is crucial if you want to stand out from the crowd. I teach Video as being the foundational and most important part of your visibility strategy alongside 2/3 other layers (such as PR, Podcast or a Book).  Using video can quickly position you as the go-to expert in your niche and collapses time of the know-like-trust factor.
