I've been selling stock footage and photos since 2015, with most income from the footage.  Like everyone else, that income has been dropping over the last 3 years.  It has come to a point where the effort put into creating high quality footage isn't seeing enough return to continue with my same strategy, uploading to all the sites.  I'd love to focus on one site to sell exclusive footage with hopes to simplify my process while possibly earning more because of exclusivity. 

Does anyone have info on what the best site for this would be??

I honestly can't see you making more money by going exclusive anywhere. It may have worked out for some, but I don't think a 50% increase in royalties can be offset by a 4/5/6 times drop in the number of agencies you submit to. If you want to simplify the process then I'd consider submitting to BlackBox. While it's not something I'd normally recommend for a number of reasons, if your goal is to make things simpler then that could be the way to go. 15% loss in your royalties, but just one upload required, and they do hit Level 5 on Shutterstock in the first week of the year... which is nice.

Thanks.  I hear ya, and maybe going exclusive isn't the strategy change I need.
