Major Brazilian Celebrities to Begin "Lifecasting" Using AppTech's Livecam ...
Sacramento Bee reported
AppTech Corp (US OTC: APCX) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Media Bridge (www.mediabridge.com.br), a leading multiplatform content producer in Brazil, to supply its technical resources so that celebrities may begin broadcasting live mobile video feeds from anywhere to everywhere. Media Bridge was co-founded by Diogo Boni, a successful entrepreneur who has also created Brazil's most popular celebrity blogging portal BlogLog (http://bloglog.globo.com).
Initially, 11 artists who account for approximately three million Twitter followers will participate in the program. Among the more prominent stars are:

"High profile personalities who have an established following on social networks have the ability to drive traffic which converts into revenue," says Elias Rocha, CEO, AppTech Corp. "If they can get just 5% of their current fan base to view either their live broadcasts or archived videos that will be made available for subsequent on-demand viewing, we will generate, on the low side, $1,000,000 a year in revenue from online and mobile advertising sources alone." Rocha continues, "Because the video streams and apps are free to users who are pre-qualified consumers of this content, we believe that the click-through rate and the combined page views on web and mobile platforms may actually be higher than 5%."
Diogo Boni comments, "Media Bridge's new partnership with AppTech establishes a direct audiovisual link between the artists and their fans. This opens a major window of opportunity to create new and synergistic products using complementary multiple media platforms."
