VideoBlocks is quickly becoming my 3rd best selling site after P5 and SS.  Only question is how soon will it catch up to the level of P5 and SS.

Keep it up, soon your sales will be diluted with all the promotion you are doing. Because of you I joined them, so there you go ;) (not that my content will compete directly with yours, but its another 60 videos competing for sales.)

We all win together as the creator of the content!!

I sold another clip today, but all 4 clips I sold so far are the clips I've never sold on other sites.  That's interesting!

Not creating conspiracy theories here, but I recall a site (I don't remember their name...they're no longer around) where in their marketing budget they purchased a bunch of videos to from contributors to "bait" them to submit more and encourage others.  Not a bad idea, really, but it does send a false positive for which people expend effort for facade demand.  I also had a sale, but no more since the one sold right after they opened. Just wondering if they are doing the same and balancing what they buy from contributors based on their port size.

I hope this isn't the case. I only uploaded some of my files to test the site.  I am not uploading any more until I feel more confident about their success.

Gotta jump in on that one Mantis: absolutely not. All sales earned are from real buyers.

I plussed you. It's just that it has happened before but glad to hear that's not the case. Thanks for clarifying.

Zero sales in the last 10 days.  How is your sales there?

Yes. So to me 2 is good, since on REVO I have had 2 in a year.

How the taging and keywording process look here. Can you engine see keywords directly from video file? Or i need one by one copy paste keywords?
Or maybe i can upload video files with same name jpegs withs all info.

Hey GooDween, metadata can be applied on VideoBlocks in three ways:

1. Type the title and keywords for each clip in your account (you can copy and paste, too).
2. Upload a CSV file. (You can even upload a CSV formatted for Shutterstock or Pond5!)
3. IPTC metadata is automatically applied.

Hope that helps!

FAR best method for me.  I find that auto apply only works for some of the fields.  And if I apply metadata in FCPX vs. Adobe Bridge it behaves differently.  In my opinion auto populate is not yet perfected, and since I keep a master Excel file for my keywords anyway uploading CSV is simply the least amount of hassle for me at this time.

Hello Zach..
I've registered as a contributor, I can't find any info about editorial shots: accepted? and if accepted: any special caption required?
thanks in advance
