Pay Per View Lock

Newly added video lock allows you to charge people for watching your videos. We are excited to present you with an opportunity to directly monetize yours and others videos by creating and integrating a PayPal button inside of your video. To get started using Pay Per View, all you need is a PayPal account.

WordPress Plugin

Taking into consideration that WordPress has by far been the most prevalent platform on which Spotlightr is used we’ve decided to develop a plugin which will ensure better integration and more consistent performance on all different types of installations by avoiding certain theme and plugin conflicts.

SEO Settings

In an effort to continually provide more value to Spotlightr , we’ve set some time aside this month to provide a set of tools that will help pages with Spotlightr rank better in search results. Newly introduced feature for SEO settings ensures that pages with Spotlightr now show with video thumbnails on search pages, which will accomplish two things. Firstly, your pages will now show in video search results as well as they will have a more prominent display in regular web search.

Email Validation Service

Understanding that capturing valid leads is of the essence to Spotlightr customers, we’ve integrated a validation service inside of email capture gate. This means that if enabled all emails attempted in the lock will pass a rigorous check to ensure their validity, resulting in false emails not being able to unlock your videos.

Coming in July… Whitelabel Accounts and Mobile Optimization

White label account will allow you to resell Spotlightr under your own brand, and add another product to your product line or sell separately to your clients. We will also continue to optimize our performance on mobile devices.
