Who Knew I Had Anything in Common With Lance Armstrong

Yesterday I had a little moment where I was a bit pissed off. Whenever that happens I crank Rage Against the Machine and they make everything feel better. Yesterday, I twittered that I was listening to RATM and about an hour later my friend Neil sends me this picture: I didn't even realize Lance Armstrong was...

Managing the Gray 63 – Is Social Media in Your Company’s DNA

Managing the GrayTM today was a straight from the brain to the microphone show as I watched a video that spurred the thought that social media is NOT in every company's DNA and that they need to realize that before just jumping in and thinking it'll be all right. I also talked about ROI...

Emily Points

Neither of us remember what I said that made her do this. Might have been something about the Jonas Brothers or who knows what, but this picture has such great emotion to it that it makes me smile every time I see it. Part of the fun of being a parent is making your kids...

Pepsi Asked For My Thoughts

First off, a big old disclosure that The Coca-Cola Company has been a client of mine. I should also state that I grew up in a house that drank only Coke products and for the most part besides Mountain Dew and Diet Pepsi when there is nothing else that holds true in my house...

Emily’s First Head Shot

Earlier this year, my daughter Emily discovered the stage. She is a natural for it and instantly was put in with older kids because the teachers saw that she needed to do more then what her age was up to. While she still says she doesn't want to dance on stage, she has no...

Porcupine Burger Recipe

I mentioned tonight on Twitter that I was making "porcupine burgers" for dinner and got more then one curious response and several requests for the recipe so I figured I'd post it here. This was a Chapman staple growing up. It was cheap, one pot and easy to make and have left overs from....

Laura and Roxie

Yesterday I took some time to finally upload photos that I've had for several weeks now. Felt good to finally get them done. This picture of Laura and Roxie that I took at Hopkinton State Park stood out to me. Something about the simplicity of it works for me.

I’m Calling a Mulligan on the Morning

Last night I was working on something and literally hit a wall with it. You ever get that way? Where it feels that your going back and forth, but never really getting to the point you want to? I'm sure we all do, but last night it really got to me. Happens sometimes. Then this...

A Brand New Day

While I'd love to just unplug for the day to party and celebrate, the honest truth is I have a lot of work today so I can't completely share my thoughts on how I feel about Obama winning the election at this moment in time. I did share some of my thoughts and celebration on...

Bio

Sketch of C.C. Chapman by Hey Instigator!There are many aspects OF who I am and what I do. Putting together THIS PAGE is one of my least favorite things to write, because talking about myself is not my idea of a fun time.

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…

Marketing Consultant

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.

Writer

I’m constantly writing and always working on my next book. You may have read some of my published works including Amazing Things Will HappenContent Rules or 101 Steps to Making Video Like a Pro.

Freelance writing or citizen reporting assignments excite me.

Photographer

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.

My photos can be found on InstagramFlickr and 500px.

Keynote Speaker

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.

Advocate & Volunteer

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.

I’m currently the President of the Board at Wediko, a member of the ONE Girls & Women Advisory Board, serve on the board of The Hockey Foundation and recently joined the No Kid Hungry Social Council.

Teacher

I’ve developed and taught courses for Lynda.com, CreativeLive and Treehouse. I’m also an Adjunct Professor of Marketing at Bentley University and hoping to do more teaching in the future.

 

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.

Fun Bio

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.

DISCLOSURES

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:

9 C Medway Road #117
Milford, MA
01757

Current relationships include:

  • Verizon FiOS provides me with service in exchange for a monthly post on technology of my choosing
  • Member of the Verizon Wireless VZWBuzz Influencer Team which means I receive electronics to review and experiences to take part in.
