Brand strategist, business names consultant & Los Angeles freelance copywriter: Scott Silverman
An award-winning advertising & marketing copywriter since 1994, a brand strategist, brand marketing consultant and business names consultant since 2007, and an all-around jokester pretty much since birth, I dig deeper to bring your company’s greatness up to the surface. After a career of creating customer connections for businesses of every size and industry, I founded Los Angeles’ Articulated Brands® to help sharp marketers nail their positioning and messaging as if their success depended upon it. Because it does.
My message-centric branding® approach connects companies to the people who matter most.
Today, my time is spent doing deep-dive brand strategy & brand marketing consulting and helping companies take brand-savvy approaches to their websites, brochures, company names and product names, digital and print advertising, etc. Breathing new energy and life into your marketing with warmth, wit and surprising approaches, we build brands clients, customers and employees find galvanizing. (For a taste of my strategic and creative sensibilities, you could take a gander at this list of company taglines.) Additionally, I am currently in the planning stages for a book designed to let the small business owner profit from big business brand marketing techniques.
