Pinterest Tests New ‘Premiere Spotlight’ Ads on its Search Page

TLDR
  • Pinterest is testing out a new ‘Premiere Spotlight’ ad unit, which would place a brands’ promotion in the prominent, top-of-screen real estate on the app’s search page. 
Brief

Kohl’s, the first partner to test the new ad unit, has reserved premium placement on the search screen, which could give it a big boost in exposure, and reaching Pinners when they go looking for products in the app. Premiere Spotlight will give advertisers prime position for 24 hours, with engaging, video promotions that will be activated in-stream. Tap on the ‘Visit Site’ CTA in the ad and you’ll be taken to the brand’s website, which opens within the Pinterest app, enabling advertisers to drive direct response from the promotion.

TikTok introduces paywalled content, with videos up to 20 minutes long

TLDR
  • TikTok is adding another way for creators to make money on the platform: by putting exclusive content behind a paywall.
Brief

The company today announced a new program, Series, that allows content creators to make collections of videos that are available for purchase. Each collection can have up to 80 videos in it, and clips can be up to 20 minutes long — a length that feels closer to a YouTube vlog than a bite-size TikTok. Creators will be able to set their rates from $1 to $190, and fans can buy access using direct in-video links or from the creator’s profile page.
