Amazing Things Will Happen When Your Content Rules How to Build a Passionate Social Media Team Social Media Is A Small Town




C.C. Chapman has been called everything from a new media maven, a podcasting pioneer and even a grounded futurist. He prefers to call himself a passionate member of the new media playground who enjoys helping build the community and connecting everyone in it.

As an entrepreneur and consultant, C.C. understands the entrepreneurial spirit, and the “in the trenches” economic and organizational challenges companies face every day. C.C. Chapman helps people and brands convert passive consumers into passionate, invested advocates.

C.C. is the co-author (with Ann Handley) of Content Rules, a book that showcases the value of “organizations as publishers.” Content Rules clearly explains how companies can create remarkable blogs, podcasts, webinars, ebooks, and more — content that converts online audiences into customer evangelists.

As a highly sought after consultant, C.C. has built meaningful relationships between a Who’s Who of A-list companies and their markets. He 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).

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, and incalculably valuable “on the ground” knowledge and insight as an influential content creator himself. The result is a best-of-both-worlds mashup of marketing expertise.

C.C. has years of public speaking experience, nearly all of it presented to companies, marketers and content creators. Rather than having a few canned presentations, C.C. prefers to tailor his speeches to be unique and up to date every time he takes the stage. He can speak about a variety of topics related to social media, entrepreneurship, online marketing and parenting.

Based in metro-west Boston and a graduate of Bentley University, C.C. is extremely active in the social media community and is considered an influencer and connector by most. His comments and thoughts have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe and on Fox Television. Most recently he has launched the parenting focused website Digital Dads, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for both Wediko and Know My World.
