  • Patent number: 6928413
    Abstract: A method of promoting a product. A user at a user location (100) is induced to obtain a first product having a unique ID from a first vendor to win a prize. The user registers the product via a user computer (102) connected on-line to a central registration server (108) across a packet-switched network (104) by completing a user profile and transmitting the user profile and unique ID to a central registration server (108) having a profile database stored on a profile database unit (110). Promoting the product in conjunction with an event at an event location (114), and in response to a triggering event occurring during the event, a tone control system (117) causes a tone signal to be transmitted in the broadcast signal using a broadcast system (116). The tone signal is coupled to the user computer (102) and decoded to enable the computer (102) to automatically connect to a web server having a prize-winning phrase containing advertisement of the second product.
