Things have been happening so fast here it appears that we forgot to introduce ourselves properly!

In case you weren’t sure if the site was run by some large agency or just a pimply teen in his bedroom – you’re mostly wrong, on both counts!

The Dealer is run by two young entrepreneurs: myself, Morris Bryant, and Ruben Sargsyan. My brother, Cameron Bryant, jumps in sometimes with a blog post or two when he’s feeling charitable!

Should I run a daily deal?Daily deals are certainly a hot topic at the moment, particularly since the announced IPOs of both Groupon and Livingsocial.

Daily DealsHey, we’re The Dealer! We’re not just another daily deals site – in fact, we’re trying to change the face of daily deals!

If you’ve ever purchased something from a group buying site then you know exactly how we feel!
