Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • [0001]
    This application is continuation-in-part of application Ser. No. 12/363,713, filed Jan. 30, 2009, which claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 61/024,829, filed Jan. 30, 2008, both of which applications are hereby incorporated herein by reference, in their entirety.
  • TECHNICAL FIELD
  • [0002]
    The invention relates generally to interactive media content distribution, and, more particularly, to the placement in a viral player of products associated with media content for interactive purchase.
  • BACKGROUND
  • [0003]
    Using conventional technology, e-commerce purchases are typically facilitated on the Internet by directing consumers to purchase products through specified websites. Specifically, a consumer on the Internet may be directed to a specific website via online advertising or sponsored links, where such websites describe specific products available for purchase, allow the consumer to choose a product for purchase, and direct the consumer to purchase the product through an e-commerce application from that website. Thus, one drawback with conventional technology is that it requires the consumer to navigate to a specific website to purchase a product, which can be time-consuming and discourage product purchases.
  • [0004]
    Furthermore, using conventional technology, products advertised on the Internet are traditionally advertised through banner advertising, “clickable” ads, sponsored links, or the like. Such advertising can range from static graphical images to rich media content, permitting the user to “click” on the ad and be redirected to a new web page (either in a new browser window or a new tab in the user's browser) to display the product, describe the product, and provide a mechanism to facilitate the purchase through an e-commerce application through that website. If a user is watching and/or listening to media content when the purchase is desired, then it can be very distracting to have to navigate to another web page to purchase the product and, when attempting to return to the media content, the user may potentially lose the media content or lose the place in the media content requiring that the media content be re-started, frustrating a user and discouraging future purchases, and further resulting in lost revenues and business.
  • [0005]
    Still further, with conventional technology, most product marketing on the Internet is achieved through banner advertising, “click-through” ads, or similar commercials run on a media player on a specific website. Although such ads can be placed on different websites through contractual arrangements with website owners and ad server networks, such ads are limited to specific areas designated for advertising on such websites, thereby limiting the scope of advertising to users who visit such specific websites, and further limiting such scope to the specific number of ad rolls associated with the traffic to such website or imposing other ad servicing provider limitations on the number of times such advertising for the product is presented on such websites, thereby restricting a user's opportunity to purchase the advertised product.
  • [0006]
    Therefore, what is needed is a system and method for facilitating e-commerce transactions without requiring that a consumer navigate to another website to engage in a transaction for the purchase of a product, without excessively distracting a consumer when watching and/or listening to media content, without limiting the marketing of a product through ads in specific areas designated for advertising on specific websites, without limiting the scope of advertising to users who visit such specific websites, and without limiting the marketing of a product to a specific number of ad rolls or other ad servicing provider limitations on the number of times advertising for products is presented on such websites.
  • SUMMARY
  • [0007]
    The present invention, accordingly, permits a consumer to view a product in conjunction with a viral player, and to select the product for purchase within the player, rather than be redirected to a separate website. There is thus no longer a need to go to a specific website to purchase a product; the viral player acts as the vehicle to facilitate the “front-end” of the purchase.
  • [0008]
    Furthermore, products can be displayed in connection with specified content at the player level—the present invention brings the e-commerce “store” directly to the user, rather than directing the user to a specified website. Specifically, the player can run media content within the player frame, with associated products listed in a separate area of the player that the user can “click” on to facilitate the purchase through the e-commerce platform back-end. Essentially, the user is able to view and purchase a product within the player while watching or listening to media content, thereby bringing the ability to facilitate the sale of a product as part of the rich media experience.
  • [0009]
    Still further, products may be marketed “virally”, permitting content owners to monetize content. In accordance with the present invention, the syndicated e-commerce player is designed to be embeddable so that users can place it in emails to friends, on social networking sites (e.g. Facebook, MySpace, Google Buzz, Yelp, etc.), or other websites, thereby permitting the syndicated e-commerce player to be distributed virally on the Internet. As a result, the products that are listed in the syndicated e-commerce player can be marketed virally without such restrictions, directly to potential consumers who will be able to view or listen to the media content of the syndicated e-commerce player and immediately purchase the associated product(s) from within the syndicated e-commerce player without being redirected from the media experience.
  • [0010]
    In one preferred embodiment, the present invention achieves the aforementioned features in a method for facilitating the purchase of commercial products in connection with the display of media content, whereby a player comprises a media production component and an interactive e-commerce component embedded therein. The player with the e-commerce component can be virally copied and propagated from one web page to any number of other web pages.
  • [0011]
    In another preferred embodiment, a player frame is generated in a first web page. At least a first portion of the player frame is reserved for said media content, and at least a second portion of the player frame is reserved for an interactive e-commerce component. Code is embedded in the player frame for retrieving the media content and placing the media content in the first portion of said player, and code is embedded in the player frame for retrieving the interactive e-commerce component and placing the interactive e-commerce component in the second portion of the player. The player frame may then be virally copied and propagated from one web page to any number of other web pages.
  • [0012]
    A system for implementing the sale of a product in connection with the display of media content includes an enterprise nucleus, and one or more syndicated e-commerce applications coupled in data communication to the enterprise nucleus. The one or more syndicated e-commerce applications include an input terminal for facilitating entry of data by a user and an output terminal for communicating data to a user. An e-commerce platform is coupled in data communication to the enterprise nucleus for facilitating the purchase of products.
  • [0013]
    The system preferably includes at least one content distribution network (CDN) and at least one advertising network, both of which are coupled in data communication to the enterprise nucleus.
  • [0014]
    The enterprise nucleus of the system further preferably includes a computer having at least a processor and a memory operably coupled to the processor, the memory being configured for storing a computer program executable by the processor, the computer program being configured for performing steps of receiving from one of said one or more e-commerce applications a request for at least one of media, products, and offers, and for transmitting said request to at least one of said CDN and said advertising network; receiving from said at least one of said CDN and said advertising network said at least one of media, products, and offers and for transmitting said at least one of media, products, and offers to said one of said one or more e-commerce applications; receiving from said one of said one or more e-commerce applications a registration ID and a purchase order, and for transmitting said registration ID and a purchase order to said e-commerce platform; and for receiving from said e-commerce platform transaction data relating to said registration ID and a purchase order, and for transmitting said transaction data to said one of said one or more e-commerce applications.

  • [0033]
    FIG. 7 depicts a flow chart 700 exemplifying one preferred embodiment for using the invention. In step 702, a user engages an e-commerce application 104, and in step 704, a user requests (e.g., via the media play list 506) media content (e.g., video, audio, game) with which to be presented. The e-commerce application 104 then generates a request for same along with associated products and product offers, and transmits the request to the enterprise nucleus 102 which forwards same to the CMS server 106 and ad server 108. In step 706, the CMS server 106 retrieves the requested media content and the ad server 108 retrieves ad content (i.e., products and product offers) associated with the media content. In step 708, the requested media content along with associated ad content is transmitted to the e-commerce application 104, and in step 710, same is received by the e-commerce application. In step 712, the media content is presented for display to the user via the media production window 502, and associated ad content is presented in the sub-frame 406.
  • [0034]
    While viewing the media content, if a user/viewer should see an item or product that the user/viewer would find desirable to have, then in step 714, the user/viewer may engage the e-commerce component 504 to place an order for the product. In step 716, a determination is made whether the user is registered with the e-commerce platform to order the product. If it is determined at step 716 that the user is registered, then execution proceeds to step 717 in which the e-commerce application 104 generates a message comprising the user's registration data and purchase order and forwards same to the e-commerce platform 110. If it is determined at step 716 that the user is not registered, then execution proceeds to step 718 in which the user is prompted to provide information to become registered to purchase the product. In step 720, the user's registration application data is encrypted and transmitted to a secure data decryption server (SDDS), and in step 722, the encrypted data is decrypted and forwarded to the e-commerce platform 110.
  • [0035]
    At step 724, the e-commerce platform receives the registration data and checks to determine whether the user has an existing account. In step 726, if the user has an existing account, then execution proceeds to step 730; otherwise, execution proceeds to step 728.
  • [0036]
    At step 728, the registration application data is processed and an account is setup in the name of the user, and execution proceeds to step 730. At step 730, payment for the product to be purchased is processed, and at step 732, a determination is made whether to post or deny the transaction. If the transaction is denied, a report of same is transmitted to the e-commerce application 104. If the transaction is posted, then in step 734 the fulfillment center 144 in conjunction with the warehouse management system 146 is instructed to fill the order and a report of same is transmitted to the e-commerce application 104.
  • [0037]
    In step 736, the e-commerce application 104 receives the report that the transaction was either denied or posted and presents same to the user, and the transaction is terminated at step 738. At step 740, the user resumes viewing or listening to the mediacontent.
  • [0038]
    It is understood that the present invention may take many forms and embodiments. Accordingly, several variations may be made in the foregoing without departing from the spirit or the scope of the invention. For example, FIG. 8 shows a system 800 in which the third party ad server 130 may be coupled directly to the third party CDN; FIG. 9 shows a system 900 in which the third party ad server 130 may be coupled directly to the CMS edge servers 122; and FIG. 10 shows a system 1000 in which the third party ad server 130 may be coupled in any combination of ways depicted by FIGS. 1, 8, and 9, and in particular, directly to the enterprise nucleus 102 and CMS edge servers 122.
  • [0039]
