New to Pond5, so I have no idea how sale will go but just had Pond5 videos reviewed in the same day.

Found it a really easy site to upload and submit to. I had a couple not accepted but the review was helpful and specific.

Just a quick question, does anyone put something in the description box? If I leave it blank is that lessening the chance of being found or is the title more important?

thanks

Anything in the description field is used by the search engine.

To be honest, Pond5 is the hardest site to be found at as a newcomer since their library is so enormous and old clips with many sales will always show up first in the search engine.

It's very hard unless you have very unique material. But best of luck!

Wow, same day? usually takes many weeks. Was it a technical rejection?....I'm guessing rejections like "unsupported codec" may be automated and therefore quick.

 :o Same day!
In general I have to wait 3-4 weeks, the good of Pond5 they pay you 50% commission and you can set the price of each clip!

thanks for replies!

Yes it was super quick - most were accepted and a few were rejected for too short a title. But those were kept on uploads to edit, even more useful as I didn't have to upload and keyword them again, just change the title.

Maybe it's quicker for animation? My vids are simple motion graphics.

Bit of a bummer if it's hard for newcomers, I'll have to see how it goes!

Unfortunately I wouldn't say my animations are anything unique! :)
