Feeds4.com automated distribution platform automates this dataflow. Publishers give us direct access to their databases or use our API to request new content in real-time. Once a publisher is integrated with Feeds4.com, we have direct access to the publisher. Your content shows up seamlessly on their website, mobile app, blog, etc., with no intervention required by the publisher.
Merchants do not need to integrate with Feeds4.com as we are already integrated with the affiliate networks where our affiliate relationship exists. There is no extra work required on a merchant’s behalf. Merchants and OPMs simply post content to the affiliate networks as they normally do and our automated distribution platform does the rest.
Once a merchant has added content to an affiliate network or has sent us an newsletter, Feeds4.com takes over. Our platform is integrated with these networks and we constantly request new content posted throughout the day. If new marketing content is discovered, Feeds4.com imports the data into our platform where we validate the data and store it.
At this point any publisher using Feeds4.com has access to your content. Publishers request content from us throughout the day and your content gets imported directly into a publishers database. There is no waiting for publishers to act or discover your content in the networks.
The Feeds4.com automated distribution significantly reduces the overhead of data entry for publishers. The process of uploading promotional content can be a full time position, if not three, for affiliates with a large amount of merchant relationships. Our service is simple and affordable and can reduce 100 hours worth of data entry to a 2 second XML datafeed request. When compared to employees or hiring and training contractors, the ROI speaks for itself.
