Today in our blog post we’ll speak about Leadfeeder - a platform that allows companies to see which businesses visit their website, even if they don't fill out a form or make direct contact. By tapping into this reservoir of passive interest, you can make sales and marketing efforts more efficient.
With the release of Leadfeeder IP-Enrich API you can derive insights or additional data based on IP addresses, which means obtaining company information or other pertinent details based on the IP addresses of website visitors.
We’ve created a Leadfeeder IP-Enrich Variable for server Google Tag Manager so that you could easily integrate it in your sGTM container. In this article we will provide a step-by-step guide on setting up the variable, describe its work and discuss its benefits.
By sending the IP, with Leadfeeder IP-Enrich Variable you can receive the user’s:
Leadfeeder API expects an API token to be included in all requests sent to the server. You can generate your unique authentication token at Leadfeeder API settings. Parameter Name: X-API-KEY, in: header.
GET /companies - returns company information based on the IP parameter.
2. Download Leadfeeder IP-Enrich variable from GitHub -> Open templates sections in your server Google Tag Manager container -> Scroll down to Variable Templates -> Click New.
3. Click three dots in the top right corner -> Click Import -> Select the Leadfeeder IP-Enrich Variable you’ve recently downloaded from GitHub -> Click save.
4. Write down your ApiKeyAuth in the API Key section and an IP Address. If IP is not set then IP address of the request originator will be used.
Store response in cache - store the response in Template Storage. If all parameters of the request are the same response will be taken from the cache if it exists.
Extract key from data - for example: company.domain.
Leadfeeder, as a platform, offers significant potential for businesses looking to capitalize on their website traffic. The addition of IP enrichment capabilities would further bolster its offering, allowing for even deeper insights and better decision-making for sales and marketing teams.
