Custom feeds in Leadfeeder allow users to create customized segmentation of site visitors based on their online behavior, demographics, or other essential data.
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, well data can be the most important thing to running a successful online business.
Let's say you have two sales teams — one in Germany and one in England. Your German sales team can create a custom feed for German-based leads, while your English team focuses on those in the U.K.
Here's the thing —- the quality of leads varies widely. You might have some job seekers on your site, or your blog might attract readers from all across the globe, but you only serve the German market. Feeds allow you to drill down and access only the most relevant leads for each specific user.
