Tailgate Technologies takes the display ad one step further and launched full online ticketing capability in a 30kb standard secure Flash banner for the movie ticketing system.

who is the target?

Anyone who wants an ad that does more than just advertise. This is where the ability to actually transact commerce online will be a distinct advantage. Every advertisement becomes a vehicle to close the deal.

why is it being done?

Why put all that effort into getting prospects to a website when they can just buy wherever they see an ad?

are the fish biting?

Time will tell but this sure feels like the next generation of display ads.

  3. I would be worried that people wouldn't understand that they could transact directly in the banner. They have been conditioned to click thru to landing pages or product pages. What about SSL? How does that work in ads? Very cool, but still some selling to do.

  4. Too much blue in there? The kite can be more prominent.
