Hi! I’m Chad. And I’m pumped you’re here!

I’m the founder and CEO of Chadwick Cannon Agency (CCA), a full-service digital marketing firm dedicated to amplifying brands and ideas. My team and I love changing the game of marketing through innovation and creativity.

I’m so glad you stopped by my blog. I post twice a week about marketing, publishing, leadership, and technology. Want to subscribe? Just plug in your email here. I’d love to keep you in the loop and ensure you don’t miss a post!

Formerly, I was Vice President of Marketing for Thomas Nelson Publishers, the largest faith-based publisher in the world (now a division of HarperCollins). In my three years there, I led more than 225 book marketing campaigns, with 16 titles reaching the New York Times Bestseller List. It was a blast!

My current and former work involves bestselling authors Michael Hyatt, Lysa TerKeurst, Dr. Les & Leslie Parrott, Judah Smith, Bob Goff, Jefferson Bethke, and others. I love helping authors share their ideas with the world!

Before transitioning into the publishing world, I spent seven years as the General Manager of Speakers and Vice President of Sales for Outreach, the world’s largest provider of church outreach products and services. It was really fun, but I’ve learned that marketing is my jam.

I am a huge fan of all things marketing, but also…

Apple products. What else is there? If you’re an Android or PC user, we’ve got a big hill to climb to be friends.

Sports. The Cubs, mainly. But anything involving a ball and some friendly competition is my jam.

Dogs. Because who doesn’t love a friend who’s always stoked to see you and lick your face? Let’s be instagram friends (@ccannon21), and you can see my canine children all the time. (Yes, I’m one of those people.)

Darn Good Food. Tacos, pizza, and steak are the way to my heart.

Traveling. The world is too awesome to not experience it, you know?

I live in Nashville, TN, and am married to Julie, a talented photographer and writer. Our two dogs, Rizzo and Maddux, are the best. They’re named for Chicago Cubs players. (Yes, THIS IS THE YEAR!)

And, I’d love to hear from you! Feel free to email me at Or if social media is your jam, follow me on Twitter and Facebook.

No one knows book marketing like Chad Cannon. He has his finger on the pulse of the ever changing nuances of today’s social media culture and will tailor make a strategic plan that fits the author and their message. And most importantly, he does it all with great effectiveness and the right heart.

Chad is quite possibly one of the best marketers, thinkers, entrepreneurs, and creatives I’ve ever met. He’s one of those really rare people where when he is a part of a project, it is astronomically more successful every time.
