Spotlight on Top Business Owners in
Advertising, Marketing & PR

Name: L. Chapman

Location: Nashville , TN 

Type of Business:
SEO Agency

What does your business do?
We get clients ranked in the Google Maps 3-Pack.

When and why did you start the biz?
Started in August 2014 - to help small-to-medium sized local businesses and service providers get their listing ranked at the Top of Google for their most important keywords. It's tough for small businesses to compete if they aren't highly visible in Google search results.

How Many People are in your Company?
3- 5

Where's your office?
Our location has two offices, with all the computers and printing/mailing devices we need to run an online business with clients across the US.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part is - overcoming the negative reputation that foreign 'SEO' emailers have created. We are professional people (one MBA and even one attorney!) who have run entrepreneurial businesses in the past, and understand the marketing challenges faced by small business owners today.

What's the most fun part?
The most FUN is when we achieve ranking in the Google 3-Pack for the client's business, and getting their extreme thanks and gratitude as the phone RINNNNNNNGS! Clients always tell their associates and business friends.

Anything you would have done differently?
I would have built my website sooner, rather than relying on word-of- mouth so much.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
We will expand to more cities, with the next office in San Diego, CA in early 2019.

What advice do you have for others?
You should calculate the ROI (Return on Investment) of the top spots in search results. It's an investment that pays back 10x and more. You will profit and grow your business with this online exposure - simply due to the volume of relevant traffic that sees your listing.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I love introducing my clients to Idea Cafe - a neutral, safe and informative "Executive Roundtable" to get ideas and exchange info. I always advise to share more than you seek. It's never bad advice.

School (where, still in school, degree)?

Prior jobs or business?
A career of being an entrepreneur, starting and running businesses in many different industries.

Favorite Food?
cheesecake (but I'm off sugar at the moment, so none for me!)

What are your pets' names?
Moses - Mixed breed rescue dog

Do any of these pets help with your biz?
Moses sleeps at my side while I work all day. He is very old, so he is quiet and content.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
I want to call out my SEO clients Ronnie and Cliff at who have trusted me with their SEO for many years, ven through major website platform changes and major Google algorithm changes. You guys are the best!
