On Wednesday 29th January Bookswarm’s Simon Appleby presented to the Faber Factory conference on the subject Digital Marketing: Inspiration vs. Perspiration. The idea was to showcase a wide selection of digital marketing ideas, from the simple to the more involved, and hopefully inspire the attending publishers with a few new ideas to try.

You can download the slides from Dropbox if you’re interested. They’re very visual – in fact only the title slide has any words on – but the notes include the URLs of all of the projects shown, and anyone who would like to explore any of the ideas shown here should of course feel free to contact us.

And on a tenuously related note, Simon was inspired to try and deliver an entirely word-free set of slides by the excellent PowerPoint-based standup of comedian / engineer Don McMillan – so here for your viewing pleasure is Life After Death by Powerpoint 2010!
