About Brain Bucket Marketing

csuf-photo-shoot-159-700x700About Chad Armstrong, the founder of Brain Bucket Marketing.

I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (ya der hey), and served three tours in Iraq with the Marine Corps (Get some!).  I met my wife Veronica, an Orange County native, just prior to what would be my last deployment.  We stayed in touch and when my contract was up, I left the Marine Corps and moved to California.  We’ve been happily married ever since.

01.furlough.102009In 2017, I graduated from the Mihaylo School of Business at Cal State Fullerton with a concentration in marketing and electives in entrepreneurship.  That’s where I discovered my interest in lean startup and platform thinking.  I served as Vice President of Entrepreneur Society while at CSUF.

Recently, I’ve been doing consulting for a group of companies that would like to move their manufacturing from China back to the United States. My primary contribution was in the revenue value of the “Made in America” label. I also helped with cost analysis. If you’ve been wondering about manufacturing in America, contact me. The time is right.

My wife and I live in Jurupa Valley, California, just outside of Riverside.  We were fortunate to find a once in a lifetime property, here’s a view of Mt. Rubidoux from our yard …


In my free time, I enjoy permaculture, 80’s music, and Green Bay Packers football.

I started Brain Bucket Marketing in 2011 as an affiliate marketing company.  After graduating CSUF, I now help other entrepreneurs and small businesses.  Brain Bucket helps with strategy, branding, SEO, and social media.  I specialize in reshoring, Gen-X branding, affiliate marketing, lean startup methodology, and platform adoption.
