Mason resident Chris Bishop has always been someone who hunted for deals. He became so adept at it, that he became the go-to guru for many of his friends when it came to finding coupons. After he got three questions in one night, he decided to build a website and TheDealBaby.com was born.
The site’s goal is to be a one stop shop for information on budgeting, finding coupons, and saving money. Bishop says it can be hard to find the information you need online, but the site can help. It also gives guidance on how to save daily and how to use the stores you like but pay less.
When the site went up, it only took a few weeks to gain a large following. The more content he added, the more attention he got on social media until eventually maintaining the site became another full-time job. He’s getting calls from across the country and multiples countries with requests for content and has also been in touch with the television show, Shark Tank.
If the site continues its growth rate, Bishop could definitely see hiring in the next six months to a year. “I’m having a hard time keeping up, and we have a chance to be very large.”
