I'm new, I want to start sell footage, but I don't know where to start. Do you have any idea about exclusive video at iStock?
or I should upload to many site to get more chance to sell my work.

Thank you for all answer

Video blocks, pond 5 and shutterstock.  Istock pays 6-7 a sale.

I don't think IS has ever been worth going exclusive with because even though my sales there are consistently high the extra royalty rate wouldn't make the earnings more than also uploading elsewhere. Typically Shutterstock and Fotolia sales pay more than the extra I would get if I were exclusive to iStock. Even less worth it now since you have to work your way up through the rates as exclusive and the base rate isn't much higher.

Besides from that the lack of day to day reporting of sales on iStock and having to import a text file into a spreadsheet half way through the next month to see what sold last month makes it very difficult to tell what files are popular. Whereas if you upload to other sites you can easily see what is selling and what isn't and create more content based on that information
