SAN CLEMENTE, CA, October 8, 2019 –– Image Protect Inc. (OTC: IMTL) (imageprotect.com) (“Image Protect”, “IMTL”, or the “Company”), a global leader in the end-to-end copyright infringement sector, is very excited to update Shareholders on the strong progress the Company has made in its Fotofy segment since officially launching the Fotofy.com platform in August 2019.
“Our progress to date on Fotofy following the launch has been ahead of schedule in many respects, and the platform has found traction in terms of image uploads for free image sharing,” stated Matt Goldman, CEO of Image Protect. “Now that we have launched the analytics dashboard and ad network, plus we have completed development on the programmatic Ad exchange set to launch in a couple weeks, the path from here to tangible revenue growth is very clear and well within reach.”
Management points to several developments as most significant in advancing shareholder value since the Fotofy launch in August:
Launched digital analytics dashboard for image owners to track use and sharing
Installed and deployed top-down central analytics facility for management of
Negotiated back-end ad placement with top digital ad firm
Finished development work on proprietary programmatic ad exchange
The data on image submissions, uploads, and image sharing demonstrate extremely robust and accelerating growth:
Sep month/month growth in images submitted onto the Fotofy platform: 200%
Oct month/month growth in images submitted onto the Fotofy platform: 3,840%
Management also notes that the Company has set two primary near-term goals: 1. Upload the first one million images to Fotofy, and 2. Generate a run rate of over one million sharing events per month. Once those goals have been achieved, the Fotofy Ad Network will become a significant factor in driving near-term revenue growth.
“Digital ad market growth is undeniably a significant factor for understanding our outlook,” continued Mr. Goldman. “Our research suggests that the space has become a $300B-plus marketplace, and of course we are firmly engaged in a global scaling process. Once we flip the switch and start realizing ad revs, we will be in every market on the planet. Given the acceleration in image submissions and image sharing we are seeing since late September, it really may not be much longer until we can start the process.”
