A Look Back at Daily Deal Sites in 2011 (Infographic)

Author:

As most of you know, Daily Deal sites exploded in 2011. As of now, there are 800 daily deal sites in the United States alone. In 2010, there were only 20.

The site 8Coupons.com put together this fantastic infographic which gives us a look back at daily deal sites in 2011. From the acquisitions and those reborn, to name changes and those that died off. Facebook is among 3 that “Died”.

Groupon has been in the news lately for its funding, which the infographic says is “like a billion dollars”, or $950 million to be exact. Falling behind Groupon in funding, is Living Social, who raised $400 million.

Daily Deal sites that went public include Groupon, Yelp, Angie’s List and Living Social.

It was back in August when Facebook announced the end of their daily deals after just four months of testing, which many said would open the doors for sites like Groupon. Whether Facebook got out because they didn’t see it as a viable business or because they just weren’t successful, is still up for debate.

Do you use a daily deal site and if so, which one(s)?

    Very informative infographic. We run a daily deal aggregator as well and I must admit that it’s difficult keeping track of all the changes in the industry especially since we deal with ecommerce sites in addition to sites offering local deals. I invite you and your readers to <a href=”http://www.trackdailydeal.com/sites/”>visit our directory of daily deal sites which lists nearly 500 sites</a>. At one point we featured over 500 sites but sites are constantly changing, merging, closing etc. – as the infographic explains. We also have a long list of sites that are on our to do list which we would like to add in the near future.

    The idea is awesome, it helpful for gaining attention what is in. The basic theme of infographics  is to find the buyer or customer behavior.
