FeedSpark

Company Background

FeedSpark builds feeds for online retailers. It has built its business around the principle that a company’s product feed is one of the most powerful – but often under-exploited – marketing tools a merchant has. Whilst significant investment is usually made in building data-rich websites, sometimes little thought goes into creating a strong product feed.
FeedSpark offers clients a range of Business Insight, Analysis and automated Marketing tools that drives higher clicks and conversion rates across affiliate channels. In addition it can provide detailed competitor analysis tools allowing clients to identify key products to promote.  With client’s around the world (from Interflora in the UK all the way to BigW – aka Woolworth’s – in Australia) FeedSpark recognises that excellent support is critical to its customers’ continued success and growth. Telephone and email support comes as standard with most technical and system amendments covered by default. There are no nasty lock-ins to contracts or restrictions over what can be done with the data.
