Hi Mat -

Assuming you may get a lot of PM's (sent a PM a few weeks ago never heard back)., so please reply to this message, thanks!

1. Could you please send a request to the dev team to be able to update keywords for "approved" videos/images via .csv? Didn't realize order was important, and it's extremely time consuming to manually use the drag/drop interface to try out different keyword orders for something that may or may not result in any extra sales. If I can edit via .csv, MUCH much more efficient!

Should be an extremely easy thing to code (i.e., less than 2 minutes code wise because most likely just a flag in your DB, but if you do a bunch of testing, etc at most a day. Really only an hour, but giving extra time here).

2. How are video sales on adobestock? I have a bunch of approved videos with no sales as of yet, so not sure if it is because of the keyword combinations/ordering, or if it is just because of low video sales (and then realizing adobestock may be more of an 'image' stock site).

Thanks very much!

2. How are video sales on adobestock?

I find them to be generally quite good, usually more than Shutterstock and Pond5 for me. I'm sure others experience different results, as it depends a lot on when you started uploading and how many sales you already have. For example, I believe Pond5 is the absolute most difficult site to enter today because of the large number of clips. But people who entered the market 10 years ago and managed to get good sales then, may still see great returns because of higher search placement.

An easy way to see if your keywords are working is to search for your own clips (logged out, cookies cleared / different browser). If you can't find them, neither can the buyers.

Many factors of course come into play, such as upload timing, behind-the-scenes curator ratings etc.

But maybe your pricing is much lower at P5, or is it the same or higher than Adobe Stock?

Actually pricing is the same... So very strange... I was thinking maybe adobe was more geared just for photos, since I hadn't had any video sales yet...

I'd like to see ability to cut and paste button once approved.  A couple of mine got approved by accident because they already had automated category and keywords which were totally wrong.  Also occasionally use a period instead of comma between keywords and then it is a real pain to correct.

For me, it's the complete opposite. Ive sold a few videos through SS with a very small video port. Though I have never sold any videos through AS with a similarly sized port. No sales through Pond 5 yet but I'm currently expanding my video port.
