Today we released an exciting new feature to our product datafeed creator – Chloe Feed Assembler – the Crawling and Distribution Scheduler! Do you wake up in the middle of the night wondering when you need to create your datafeed? Do you wake up in a cold sweat wondering if you submitted your product datafeed to your affiliate network? Do you have a recurring nightmare that you created your feed but forgot to submit it, like the one I have where I show up to high school without pants?
Well stress no more!
Now the Chloe Feed Assembler allows you to schedule the day and time you want to create your feed, how often you want it created (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly etc) and when to distribute it to your network(s) of choice. Yes you heard me right! Not only can we automagically create your feed whenever you want and do that every (enter time frame here), but we’ll also automagically submit it to the network of your choice!
You’ll wake up well rested and in a good mood when you read your email and see this: “Your feed was created, submitted and accepted today at 5:20am!”
Ok, enough of the late night informercial. But it’s true. The only thing it doesn’t do for you is cut a beer can in half and still thinly slice a tomato!
Need this? We thought so. Contact us at email@example.com or 1800-208-6215. We’d love to help you get started!
5 or 6 years ago we tried to find a solution for a LinkShare client of ours that would allow us to get a product datafeed, merchandiser feed as LinkShare has called it, with very little needed from our client. There just wasn’t an option at the time, nor has there been until we developed the Feed Assembler.
Who did we create this tool for that allows anyone to create a product datafeed with no IT resources and really no resources needed at all? Well, basically me, 16 years ago. I worked for a large women’s retailer and could not get the dev team to give me a feed, for years. I would have loved a tool that only required me to provide my upload and distribution information and a credit card. Now I don’t think I would have given a limb for that but maybe a digit :).
Several weeks ago, we released the Rakuten Linkshare Merchandiser product feed integration for Chloe Feed Assembler. Each formatted and distributed LinkShare Merchandiser Product Datafeed file includes your MID, Company Name, Time Stamp and all the required product information as well as all the non-required fields that we are able to find and map from the in-code and on page data from your site. When the file is sent to Rakuten LinkShare, it is in the format and has the naming convention required for a completed upload.
If you have an affiliate program on the Rakuten LinkShare affiliate network and you need a product datafeed, don’t spend any more time on it then getting out your credit card. There is no mapping, no meetings with your dev team, no begging for development time and no time spent hand building a datafeed. We do it all and within 48-72 hours you’ll have a datafeed that will help you drive more sales! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
