The MadKudu snippet is a few lines of code that you add to your website to personalize forms and web pages depending on who your visitors are. For example, you can show a specific offer to leads that are qualified for a sales consultation.
The MadKudu snippet added on your website will load a personalized madkudu.js script which will essentially make a call to the MadKudu API to return a score based on the email of the visitor.
