SAN CLEMENTE, CA, October 10, 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 pleased to highlight new data from marketing research leader WARC projecting global online advertising will match or surpass all other advertising spend in 2020. The firm expects global digital ad spend to top $298 billion in 2019.
The WARC research report (which can be found here) also highlighted North America as “ahead of the pack” in its shift to digital ad spend. The region has already seen online ads account for the majority (56.3%) of total advertising budgets. This includes a forecast 15.2% rise in spend in the US in 2019.
Image Protect CEO, Matthew Goldman, commented, “There are several trends that truly define the world right now, and the migration of ad spend into the digital marketplace is one of the most central and most dependable. We are predicating our core strategy on this fact. This is one of the reasons we are so excited to see the enormous traction now coming together for our Fotofy Platform, an emerging in-image digital ad network.”
The Company recently reported that October 2019 is on pace to show nearly 4,000% growth in submitted images onto the Fotofy Platform.
As those images are shared across the internet, they will form a distributed digital billboard for advertisers. The Company also recently announced that it has completed all technology development work on its proprietary programmatic ad exchange, which will go live on November 1, beginning the countdown to initial revenue growth from the model.
