“I have known Lisa Chapman since 1985 when she volunteered on a Gubernatorial campaign in Tennessee, in which I served as Deputy Campaign Manager. Since that time, I’ve worked with her often; when she served as Treasurer of my campaign for Congress, as the CFO of AdExpress, Inc., our out-of-home moving billboard company, and countless other entrepreneurial and business endeavors over the years. Ms. Chapman is a keen and extremely capable business executive. She is a proven leader, thoughtful decision-maker and an incredibly hard worker. I believe the best testament to an individual’s capabilities is the answer to this question: “Would you hire this person again?” My answer is, “Absolutely and unconditionally!”

After working with Lisa Chapman in three separate engagements during 2021-2022, I heartily endorse her digital marketing consulting services. She consistently over-delivers and adds significant value.
The three engagements involved delivering: Strategic Digital Marketing Plans, Online Reputation Management, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and getting content ranked on Page One Google – quickly. The three client organizations include a well-known non-profit in a major metropolitan market, a multi-state political consultant, and a prominent metropolitan political campaign in a mid-size market. Each engagement had a different focus and different objectives, all to be achieved ‘yesterday’.
Lisa thoroughly researches each situation, and her consulting deliverables include a custom-written digital plan with specific, step-by-step instructions for tasks to be executed in order to achieve the client’s goals. She allots adequate training time to educate staff members about up-to-date digital ‘best practices’. She makes sure that staff members: 1) understand why their tasks are important to the big picture, 2) have the knowledge and resources needed to succeed, and 3) feel competent to execute.
Lisa shares a wealth of digital marketing ‘agency’ tips and tricks that are not readily available online, but gained through many years of experience and staying current on effective digital marketing skills. Plus, she draws upon a thorough understanding of how search engine algorithms gather, prioritize and rank information in search results. It’s this combination of art and science that she delivers for each unique situation, to get quick results and achieve clients’ goals.
I’ve found that Lisa is a tremendous pleasure to work with, is highly responsive, and over delivers on-time and on-budget. Lisa’s extensive expertise and experience is pure gold.

“I’m a partner in RuckusFILM : a 30-year old film production company based in Nashville. Every few years, we find it helpful to bring in an outside professional to help us take a hard look at our business and find ways to make it better. Lisa has been great to work with and she has added an entirely different and valuable perspective on our company.
“Her background in banking and finance, plus her experience working with a variety of businesses, enables her to help us focus on the business/money-making side of our company. She also has done lots of research to become grounded in our industry. In fact, some of the research she has done has proved valuable and educational for us, and has led to better ideas and new approaches for our company.
“She is an excellent listener and processes information in interesting ways. She is a wonderful meeting facilitator which helped all our partners have a voice in the process.
Long story short, Lisa has been instrumental in helping us rethink our business, refine our approach to making it fun and profitable, and has helped us craft a plan which we believe will move us to a whole new level. I recommend her without reservation.”
