SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE – 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 excited to announce imminent steps and a pending partnership discussion that will expand the Fotofy Platform into the massive and rapidly growing Push Notification space.

The Company is beginning development of a software module that will allow Push Notifications to be compatible with the Fotofy Platform, creating a new multi-billion image channel of expansion that could drive enormous excess exposure for Fotofy image users, rightsholders, and brands. The Company is also in advanced discussions with a leading global Push Notification platform toward the formation of a strategic relationship to advance this agenda.

“The push notification space is thriving,” commented Matthew Goldman, CEO of Image Protect. “We are in discussions with a new partner that will facilitate our relatively rapid expansion into this new market. The software development hurdle is very manageable, and this step will open up an enormous additional market for our key platform components.”

Management notes that the evolution of data on the push notification space, including its clear superiority to traditional email-based marketing strategies in terms of click-thru rates and engagement, suggests a strong likelihood of continued growth in the overall size of the push notification market as well as the total number of push notifications delivered per day to web and mobile users over any timeframe into the future.

According to BusinessofApps.com, the average US smartphone user receives 46 push notifications per day (other estimates put that number above 60). And 40% of web push notification senders belong to either the ecommerce, media, publishing, or blogging sectors, suggesting that push notification relationships could function as gateway channels for more extensive growth in website-based expansion for the Fotofy network.

Mr. Goldman continued, “The success of Fotofy will be a function of the sheer number of eyeballs we can get focused on our code-augmented images. It’s that simple. Even without exploring the Push Notification avenue – even moving simply along the lines of viral sharing of images and conversion of sites on the web – we were already looking at enormous potential. But this move clearly and dramatically expands that potential.”
