Our Story

 

We launched Feedonomics with the vision of creating the leading feed platform in the industry. We were founded on the knowledge that optimized feeds perform better. Our founders experienced many shortcomings with legacy feed platforms while managing feeds at large advertising agencies.

 

We created Feedonomics in direct response to the challenges we experienced in support and ability to transform data to get the best advertising performance possible in an increasingly Omnichannel world.

 

Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated FeedFillment™ team and innovative technology, Feedonomics now serves some of most prolific advertising agencies, brands, and retailers.
