Today is TicketNetwork.com's Fifth Anniversary! Although our site existed in some form or another before then, it's been five years since we launched ourselves as a retail site. And what a journey it has been. In that time, we've changed rapidly and grown dramatically. Let's take a look back at how things have evolved.
We've changed our look quite a bit
When we launched in 2007, the site looked a lot different than it does now. For one thing, there was a lot less emphasis on blue, grey, and red, which we currently feature throughout the site. Instead, there was a lot more green and yellow. In a revision from early 2008, we dispensed with some of the green and began to move toward the blue that would later become a big part of the site for a long time. During this time we also launched our affiliate program.

Revision from January 2008.
By mid-2008, the time had come for a major makeover. Enter bluepalooza. Everywhere you went...blue. Blue logo, blue header, blue gradients. Can you guess our favorite color from that time? Hint: It started with the letter "B." Of course, by early 2009, things started to change again. For the first time, gray started to peek through and the On Sale Now section gained some seasonal color.

Congratulations to our Grand Prize winner, Dario!
He was selected at random from the 236+ entries received in our TN Team Blog contest. Dario completed three of the four entry methods we provided for the contest. But it was his first response — entry #209 — that made him a winner.
And the event that he deemed the best he's ever attended? Why, it was no less than opening day at the new Yankee Stadium!
As the Grand Prize winner, Dario will receive a $100 gift card for TicketNetwork.com. With the selection available on TicketNetwork.com, there will be plenty of event tickets for Dario to choose from — concerts, theater, sports...maybe even another ball game? Whatever event Dario attends next, we hope it's every bit as memorable and enjoyable as his prize-winning day at Yankee Stadium!
Thanks to everyone who entered the TN Team Blog contest and helped celebrate our millionth ticket milestone. Your enthusiasm proved that TicketNetwork.com customers are the best on the planet!
And, of course, thank you for helping us reach one million tickets sold through our online marketplace. Here's to the next million tickets!
Thanks to everyone who entered our TN Team Blog contest! The contest is now closed.
Our fact-finding ferrets are busy tabulating and verifying the 200+ entries we received. When they're done, our mathematically minded monkeys will select a winner at random.
While that's being done, join us as we continue our one millionth ticket celebration. And check back tomorrow to see who's won the GRAND PRIZE: a $100 TicketNetwork® gift card!
