About a year ago I decided to use more than one agency. Until then, I offered my videos only in Pond 5. I started use Videoblocks, Motion Elements, Shutterstock and others. Then my sales in Pond5 dropped. Of the other sites I have almost no sales. What do you think, is there a connection? Think that i will end used the other sites and stay only in Pond.

you're trying to find a correlation which I feel there is none... 8)

I also think there is no revelant, but for me this is fact. So I please for yours
  opinion. I really do not see any reason to reduce my sales in Pond5 so much. Did I seem to have mistaken the use of other agencies?

Pond5 know at least some of their contributors that sell the same product at other agencies cheaper and they don't like it, no correlation though.

I don't think that Pond5 doing something. Perhaps buyers are confused when see the same clips on different sites and refuse to buy. I strive price in other sites be same of all my videos. Unfortunately,  my sales were down a lot when I started selling on several other sites . Nobody had a similar problem?

I sell my videos on different agencies!

I have always asked myself if it wouldn't be better to stay only at Pond5...

What drives me down off this ideia is the fact that Pond5 have its "dry seasons" too. Shutterstock sometimes saves my life, despite the low price business practice.
