Which Daily Deal Site Are You? This Flow Chart May Have The Answer.

The daily deals space continues to morph with each passing month, and we all have our fingers crossed that it is indeed maturing. (Even though some would prefer to see the space vanish altogether before that happens.)

With few barriers to entry, everyone and their mother is launching a daily deals site these days. For example: Yipit releases a sometimes-monthly report on the movement and flux in the space, and this report collects data from more than 650 deals sites. Yep, over 650. Of course, the total number of deal sites fluctuates each month, as in July, for example, 38 deals sites closed their doors — compared to 36 new sites launched.
