Bookswarm develops new website for the Book Marketing Society

The Book Marketing Society was launched in November 2004 with the objective of becoming the representative body of marketing within the book industry. As such, it champions marketing professionalism with the ultimate goal of expanding the UK book market. Anyone who works for a book publisher, book retailer or book wholesaler is eligible for membership, including those working in associated areas of the publishing and book retailing industry.

Bookswarm built their new website using WordPress; top-notch features include Events, Jobs and Work Experience sections, as well as a Directory of Members – these use the power of a high-end forms plugin to turn user-supplied content in to nice looking site content with a minimum of effort required by the BMS.

We also designed and built a MailChimp template, and set it up using RSS to pull all the latest news, Tweets, jobs and events through from the website automagically (which is like automatically, only better).
