We suck at lunch. We don't play golf. We have no Yankees tickets to offer. And if you believe bigger is better, we're the worst agency there is. But if you're more interested in performance than perks, you'll be glad to know SILBERWARE - the brainchild of award-winning copywriter/creative director Mark Silber - offers an absurdly long list of copywriting services, including:



Branding Copy
Business Plans
Case Studies
Direct Mail
Email Marketing Ghostwriting
Press Releases
Sales Collateral
Sales Letters
SEO Copywriting
Snappy Taglines
Technical Writing
TV/Radio Scripts
Video Scripts
Web Copywriting Whitepapers

Whew! And we do what we do without a cast of thousands - it's basically just one guy plus a chimp who takes dictation. Which means we're cheaper than a real agency - in fact, one of us works for peanuts.

We are relentlessly, single-mindedly, disturbingly focused on copywriting. We believe passionately in the power of words and it's our mission to help businesses find the right words to communicate with their customers, the media and other constituencies. Hey, some people are doctors, some people are philanthropists. We majored in English. Fortunately, no one's yet figured out how to offshore the creation of clever, persuasive, vernacular English. Good thing.

SILBERWARE provides copywriting services for all kinds of companies - from one-person home businesses to venture-funded startups to Fortune 500 behemoths. Our clients come from anywhere English is used in the business context, including the Americas, Europe and Asia. (Come on, Antarctica, get with the program!) We have experience in industries including automotive, consumer products, energy, financial services, healthcare, hospitality, luxury goods, media and entertainment, nonprofits, software/technology, telecom, travel. As you might surmise, we've been doing this a long time.

Sometimes I don't know what that other guy is doing.Me neither.NEW! Heartfelt testimonials from our loyal clients, in no way written by us and then flashed past them for their grudging approval. READ THEM NOW!

Random thought: Wouldn't it be cool if I wrote A BLOG? And then never updated it ...

Hey - some guy interviewed me for something: Listen!      And look - the New York Times wrote about a campaign I wrote!

Does your website stink so bad you have to hold your tie over your nose like a TV detective visiting the morgue?
In no way am I suggesting that when the little girl encounters an unpleasant aroma that she somehow turns, even figuratively, into a screaming simian.Would your sales materials look more in context lining the interior of a catbox? Is your current marketing communications provider (assuming it's not me) making you long for the good old days when vivisection was merely frowned upon but not actually illegal? If you answered YES to any of these admittedly leading questions, you may be an excellent candidate for the MARK SILBER MARCOM EVALUATION. Basically what happens is, you gather a sample of your marketing communications materials - ads, brochures, website, PPT, whatever - you show them to me and I tell you whether, given your objectives, they're really as bad as you're afraid they might be. NOTE: Client must be sitting down when I deliver my report.

The blue image is a balloon doggie, which truth be told, Mark Silber didn't even make. The other picture is actually Mark Silber. Feeling comfortable yet?MARK SILBER is available for speaking engagements, marketing workshops and children's birthday parties. Ask for him by name! (Or just point in his direction during the line-up.)
NOTE: Some balloon animals may be inappropriate for small children.

Look! This page just goes on and on! (We must've paid ourselves by the word.)
