Quizlet, a study website, launches an advertising platform

Study website Quizlet is taking the wrapper off its ad platform today, along with adding new ad formats, after building out its direct sales operation over the last two years.

While Quizlet previously offered programmatic banner ads, the new formats are more designed to capture attention, appearing between flashcards, during the publisher’s study break function—and as native ads. The website will also now show video ads.

Its pitch to advertisers is its access to younger audiences and its stores of first-party data, as privacy regulations increasingly make relationships with audiences harder for brands using the traditional levers of digital advertising.

“[Gen Z is] a hard audience to reach, it seems,” said head of ads and partnerships Conny Mirza.
