Snapchat FYI

  When asked what you'd like to see me create in 2016 many of you answered with some version of more teaching items. So, when I was asked why I thought Snapchat was going to have such a great year, I decided to make a video explaining how I use Snapchat. Right now it is one of...

I get hired to create a variety of content, but for me the best part is all the exciting people I get to meet along the way. Recently, my assignment from was to chat with Lydia Winters, or as she is known to her legion of fans MinecraftChick, about her role as Mojang's Director of Fun.

FlightTrack Pro Review

I travel a lot. While I love touring the world and seeing new places, I hate the stress that comes with traveling so I'll do anything to cut as much of it out as possible. I've written about how I survive travel before and two of my favorite tools still to this day are TripIt and...

Miniskirt Philosophy For Content

I get asked all the time what is the right length for content? Is there a magical length that a video should be to go viral? Can a blog post be too long or too short?

Baratunde on Passion Hit TV

I realized this morning, that I've been neglecting to do a great job of sharing content that I create on other sites here on my main one. This of course is a rookie mistake and one that I should know better, but life gets busy and you sometimes forget the little things. As you know...

What is Passion Hit TV?

Back during the holidays, I launched a new video series called Passion Hit TV. Immediately my good friend Jeff Sass asked me, "If this is a video show, why don't you have a video explaining what it is all about?" A great question, from a great friend and now I have the answer. Special thanks to the...

BlogWorld Interviews From the .tv Booth

Home Movies

I miss home movies.  The playful, raw, nobody is ever going to see this mentality that we had when we were making them. Today we’ve all got cameras. I’m writing this on the plane ride home from BlogWorld Expo and you couldn’t step a foot without seeing someone filming. While we share, interact and spout on...

On the Road: Burlington, VT

Last week I drove up to Burlington, Vermont for a Content Rules book tour stop and I thought it would be fun to document and share it with everyone. Of course, what I hadn't planned for was tornados might endanger my family while I was on the road which is exactly what happened. I let...

Content Catchup Monster

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 headshots can be found below.

Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…


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.


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.

My photos can be found on Instagram and Flickr.

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.

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.


Helping others learn and inspiring them to achieve their goals is the most fulfilling thing I do. As a Visting Instructor of Business and Management at Wheaton College and as an Adjunct Professor of Marketing and Communications at Bentley University I get to do this with the next generation. I’ve also developed and taught courses for LinkedIn, CreativeLive, and Treehouse.


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.

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

Current relationships include:

  • Verizon FiOS provides me with service in exchange for a monthly post on technology of my choosing
