After getting three separate messages from people asking me how I thought they could become an expert in social media I turned on the camera and vented a bit in that direction.
I'm not a die hard Harry Potter fan, but I am a big fan of the books. I got into them several Christmas trees ago when I got the first four books as a gift. But, I'm a sucker for cool and unique printing of books so when I saw that they were going to...
I get tagged with various meme from time to time. This morning I saw Steve Garfield post about this and I thought it was a cool idea. The day ran away from me and I never got around to doing anything about it. Then moments ago Bob Goyetche took part in it and of course he...
When the leaves start changing color, I always start getting reflective. I think about where I am in my life, what has happened over the past year and where I want to see things go and change in the future. I remember starting this post in my head back on November 1st. I wanted to...
You learn over time, that when being asked questions by a reporter that you never know which pieces of your answers they are going to take or how they will use them depending on where they are going with their article. Because of this I was a little weary of a request I got...
We realized that ten years ago we had both of our families down to Virginia for Thanksgiving. Laura was pregnant with Dylan and it was the last turkey day we'd spend down there before moving back to New England. Having a house full of family this year made me very happy. I've been looking...
Today has been the day of a million little tasks. Thankfully I pushed through most of them and can call it day. This morning the kids and I jumped in the truck and headed over to Outpost Farm to pick up our turkey. We had heard nothing but great stuff about this place so we...
I didn't grow up playing many video games. We never had a gaming system in the house so whenever I went to a friends it was a lot of excitement and me getting my ass kicked on whatever game was hot at the time. Going to the arcade was a huge luxury and something...
The world of iPhone applications is only a few months old. Me being an iPhone user is only a few weeks old. Because of this, I install a lot of applications. Most are free or cost a couple of dollars, so just like I'm willing to try an unknown song for 99 cents, I'll give...
I got a great surprise this afternoon when I got a Twitter DM and a link to this video. Turns out that this morning when I was talking about and thinking about Sticker Giant they were doing the same thing. Very humbled by the overly nice things he said about me and The Advance Guard.

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 head shots can be found below.
Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…
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.
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 Samsung NX1 and a Chroma 4k Drone.
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).
C.C. is an advocate who speaks about building passionate communities and the strategic values of content-based marketing. He is a Samsung Imagelogger, the original ONE Dad and a UN Foundation Social Good Fellow. As a storyteller for hire, his work has appeared on the pages of Rolling Stone and The Wall Street Journal.
C.C. serves as the Chairman of the Board at Wediko and serves on the board of The Hockey Foundation. He happily lives in the woods outside of Boston with his loving family. Find out more at CC-Chapman.com
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:
