Track Daily Deal launches deal analysis reports
Largo, Fla. – Track Daily Deal, an online service for deal site shoppers, is launching new deal analysis reports. The reports evaluate daily deal sites on criteria such as how a site ranks against competing sites, how often and when it adds deals, how much consumers usually save and number of visitors.
“Let’s face it, if you are on a tight budget, you are not going to check out sites that sell highly priced items,” said Track Daily Deal founder Danny Pajevic in a blog post. “Instead, you are likely looking for a deal that will only cost a couple of dollars. Our data can help you find a deal site that fits your budget.”
