I’m extremely excited that yesterday we pulled back the curtains on The Advance Guard’s web site. It was a long time coming, but I'm excited by how it turned out. When we launched the company, we knew we needed a web site. To think otherwise is a very naive thought. But, we also knew that...
A lot of things inspire me. A story from Clarence Smith Jr., a photo from Scott Church or a song from Tom Acousti. Two nights ago as I watched the live TED Prize webcast I was filled with inspiration. Here were people doing amazing things and who know their passions and do everything in life...
Can you imagine your life without clean drinking water? As someone who has been on long hiking and canoeing trips where you have to filter or boil every drop of water you drink I've gotten a small taste of what it can be like. But for 1.1 billion people around the globe the idea...
I've met some great people over the years through Podcasting and two of the sweetest have to be Erin and Kristin from The Manic Mommies. While we only live a couple of towns apart, we are all so busy with our family, work and other activities that we don't see each other as often...
Inspiration can come at you when you least expect it. That isn't to say that every time I get together with Steve Garfield I'm not inspired in some way because he has that effect on people. If you don't believe me just watch his 27 People One Question to see what I mean. But, last...
Lots of thoughts and little time to fully formulate them. So a good old fashion brain slurpee list of what is going on inside of my head right now. I'm wondering if part of the problem with the economy right now is too much information. The last time things were so bad we did not...
I've been fortunate enough to be interviewed by lots of different publications, television networks and individuals over the years, but today an interview I gave over a month ago hit the web and it might be my favorite one yet. Being called "an American Storyteller" by The Smithsonian feels pretty damn cool. Being on the...
Today is my little guy's birthday. He turns 10. I'm not sure why this hit me so hard last night. I thought maybe it was because it was getting to me about my age, but that wasn't it at all. I look back over all that has happened in these ten years and it is...
I had planned to post this video I made the other day, but then the whole CNN interview happened and that left me rather distracted from everything else. I wanted to put together something that showcased some of my favorite pictures and events that happened last year. It was fun to go back through and...
I've been on the news before and in the papers. I don't care what anyone says it is always a cool feeling when it happens. So when I got the call from CNN asking if I could do a live interview tonight, how could I say no. The funny part is that I almost didn't...
© Legend - A Handcrafted Misfit Theme
When asked what I do my current answer is, “I create, teach and motivate people to do more good in the world.”
Of course, that doesn’t cover all that I work on professionally and personally, so that is why I created this page.
Official bios and headshots can be found below.
Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…
Freelance writing or citizen reporting assignments excite me.
If I had to choose a style, I’d say my photos are a mix of documentary, travel and lifestyle photography. While I may not enjoy taking head shots, I love to shoot faces. I rarely go anywhere without a camera in my hand and I’ve been fortunate to see my photos on the pages of Rolling Stone and The Wall Street Journal.
I’m currently shooting with a Canon 80D, an iPhone 7+ and a Chroma 4k Drone.
With over twenty years of marketing, online media and community building experience I have the skills and experience to help your organization no matter the size. Previous clients have included The Coca-Cola Company, American Eagle Outfitters and HBO.
I focus on social good/impact marketing, content marketing and brand strategy. My favorite clients are NGOs, nonprofits or brands looking to make a difference in the world.
Feel free to double check my credentials on LinkedIn.
I’m happiest when on stage educating and inspiring an audience of any size, anywhere in the world.
I have spoken at everything from large international events, corporate retreats and at special gatherings of unique individuals. If you need someone who will inspire, educate and entertain your audience I’d love to chat.
I believe in using my skills, time and voice to champion causes that are important to me. I’m especially interested in anything military, dogs or children focused.
On top of all that I’m a proud life long New Englander who was born and raised in New Hampshire, but now resides outside of Boston.
I married my high school sweetheart, have two amazing kids and love being a dad.
I’ve been online since 1989, began blogging in 2002 and podcasting in 2004.
Previous endeavors I created include Accident Hash, Passion Hit TV, Digital Dads and The Advance Guard.
Tattoos, travel and the outdoors turn me on. There are fewer things more perfect than a well-done cocktail, a delicious meal or live art of any sort. I love my GORUCK, Field Notes and am a proud Misfit.
To understand me is to understand that I try to live a purposeful life every day that is full of adventure, love and making the world around me a better place for all.
C.C. Chapman describes himself as a New England raised storyteller, explorer, and humanitarian. Others have described him as a thought leader in the online marketing space, a grounded futurist and one the nicest guy on the Internet. Over the years of his career, he has worked with a variety of clients including Nike, HBO, American Eagle Outfitters, ONE, Verizon FiOS and The Coca-Cola Company.
He is the co-author of the International bestseller Content Rules and is also the author of Amazing Things Will Happen. He travels the world speaking in front of audiences to do more in the world and how to understand content marketing better. C.C. has taught classes for Lynda.com, CreativeLive and now as an adjunct professor at Bentley University (where he also graduated from).

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more multi-faceted or enthusiastic creative/strategic partner in the marketing and content creation fields. This greatly hails from C.C.’s unstoppable combination of marketing experience and savvy (which a great many professionals claim to have), and incalculably valuable “on the ground” knowledge and insight as an influential content creator himself (which a great many professionals do not). The result is a best-of-both-worlds mashup of marketing expertise.
C.C. Chapman sports the pro cred to be a talker (working closely with such clients as American Eagle Outfitters, Coca-Cola, HBO and Warner Bros.), and the passion and gumption to be a doer (creating content for the emerging Online Dad market, marketing professionals, music fans and more). He’s helped create, manage and execute ambitious online and offline marketing campaigns for startups and multinationals — and has the invaluable good sense to know which outreach strategies work with audiences, and which ones fall flat.
He authoritatively speaks your language. He speaks your CMO’s language. Most important, he’s fluent in your market’s language. It’s a killer double-chocolate-and-peanut-butter combination. Contact C.C. to learn how he can help your organization achieve its business goals. There’s, even more, to know about C.C. Chapman if you want to read it — and you should. C.C.’s skills are an embarrassment of riches.
I’m involved with a lot of organizations and clients. I believe in being completely transparent and open about everything I’m working on. I’ll do my best to keep this updated and of course, will clearly disclose relationships in any post that require them.
I am open to being pitched and invited on press trips.
Companies do send me items in the hopes that I will review it or share with my community. If you send me something it does not guarantee a review.
With that in mind, my mailing address is:
