how to find customers for your daily deal website
Finding merchants who are willing to post deals on a newly created daily deal site is a great challenge. Most merchants have already been contacted by other daily deal websites and they have had some experience, good or bad, with posting the deals. It is not an easy task to convince vendors that offering deals with your website is something they may benefit from. The merchants will not agree to run a business with a deal website that do not have an audience interested in purchasing their deals. They also more likely agree to deal with a reputable deal operator. So building your subscribers list and establishing your good online and business reputation are the primary tasks of each daily deal startup.

How to find merchants to source your deal website? There are many methods, let’s review some of them.
