SingleFeed : Affordable Shopping Search Data Feed Management
Brian Smith, an independent analyst for the shopping comparison engine industry known for his work at Comparison Engines, has just launched a new service for businesses wishing to simplify the product submittals to shopping search engines.
SingleFeed (currently in Beta) simplifies the data feed management and data feed submission process by allowing merchants to create a single feed which covers all the requirements and most important optional fields for Google Base, Shopzilla, Shopping.com, Yahoo! Shopping, PriceGrabber, NexTag, Become, and Smarter.com. SingleFeed checks the feed for errors, walks the merchant through how to fix any errors, manually categorizes the products in the feed, and then submits and automatically re-submits the data feed to the selected shopping comparison engines.
Each shopping comparison engine has a unique specification that merchants have to strictly follow in order to submit their products. Filling out a data feed for any one shopping comparison engine can take hours. Figuring out how to submit the feed can then be difficult. Finally, once the data feed is submitted, fixing errors can take an additional couple of hours. And then a merchant has to repeat this process again for each additional shopping comparison engine. At the end of the day, the process is so complicated that many merchants fund accounts and then never submit a proper data feed.
No fear, SingleFeed is here!
Small and Medium Sized Merchants can now take advantage of professional and affordable data feed management by Brian Smith, one of the best in the business. Using SingleFeed, merchants can save a significant amount of time and money by allowing SingleFeed to work with them in order to create an optimized data feed and correct all errors for that feed through the online service.
* No software download is required.
* It might take a little longer to create the SingleFeed, but merchants only have to do it once.
* Because of his background in Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Brian developed SingleFeed with Data Feed Optimization (DFO) in mind, requiring fields that might be optional, but that significantly improve results when used in the right way.
* Brian and his team will also manually categorize product listings for Shopzilla, Shopping.com, PriceGrabber, Become, and Smarter.com.
During the Beta period, merchants can submit to Google Base (which automatically gets the merchant on Froogle and possibly Google itself) for the special price of $4.99 per month in October and November. Deluxe Submission to Google Base plus any or all of the other 7 shopping comparison engines SingleFeed supports will be just $99.99 per month plus a one-time $29.99 set up fee in October and November.
As an incentive for signing up for the Deluxe Submission service, Brian has negotiated special free click offers for all merchants who sign up for the first time with Shopzilla, Smarter.com, PriceGrabber, and Become. These free clicks represent more than $150 in savings which means the Deluxe Submission service pays for itself.
Give SingleFeed a lookover, it could change the way you do business online.
