An Influx of Daily Deals
These days, it seems as if you can't go very far on the Internet without running into a daily deals site. They appear to have just popped up overnight, and before you could say "Groupon," there were dozens of them. And while this burgeoning industry has seen its fair share of ups and downs in its short lifetime, it looks like daily deals sites are going to maintain a presence on the Web for the forseeable future.
By ranging from the highly specialized and niche to the something-for-everyone variety, deal-of-the-day sites seem to have cornered every possible market, and so it seems likely that every consumer can find a use for this unique take on e-commerce. Such as guns and gun accessories or video games or ties? Yes, there's even a daily deals site for ties.
