I'm trying to find other places to sell my clips besides the known agencies.
80-90% of my sales are from SS, P5, FT, VB. Each month in different order.
But it seems that all the other sites - Depositphotos, Dreamstime, MotionElements, 123RF, etc - the videos just don't sell... :(

I'll be more then happy to hear otherwise from someone here.

90% of sales will always come from 10% of the sites.

The rest are just fillers that you upload to if you have time to spare.

I get the occasional sale on Dreamstime, Motion Elements and 123RF, but hardly worth the effort. Combined, they probably make me 1/5th of what I make on Shutterstock.

People will get the pitchforks and torches out for me saying this, but I make most of my money from VideoHive. However, the majority of my content is motion graphics (and some decent selling AE projects), which sell very well there. Regular stock footage doesn't do as well to be fair. And there's a crazy wait time of about four months for review, but it's coming down gradually. I'd say three months is more likely for anyone uploading now.

But yeah, if you have motion graphics stuff, then I'd definitely give it a try (the review queue is a week or two for those). If you have just regular footage, then it's up to you.

Thanks for the input.
My portfolio is 95% footage and 5% photos. From what I understand the prices at Videohive are very low, so I will not undermine my own portfolio (I wonder what will the guys at Dissolve think about that...)
There was some talk here about manual pricing coming soon to videohive - that might be the feature I was waiting for to jump in.
