Most anti-Video Blocks people aren't responding to my original post.  I don't care if you sell at VB or not.  That's not the point I raised on my original post.
Your original post is non-sensical and narrow. There is nothing to respond to in the fashion you're looking for.


Then, say nothing.  You are wasting time of your own.  Just start your own thread instead of being a perpetual wino.
"You should make a buyer want to buy at $49 on VideoBlocks rather than paying more on Pond5 or any other sites"

You start your OP with this and expect everyone to agree?


You just don't get my point.  $79 sale on SS will give a contributor only $24 or so.  $79 sale on P5 will give contributor only $40 or so.   $49 sale on VB will give contributor $47 which is more than those $79 sale on other sites.  More money in our pocket is good, for me at least, maybe not for you.  :)

Ask yourself why a company has chosen to host and sell your clips and not retain any of that earning. As if it all just happens for free.

It doesn't just happen 'for free'. They make their money off of users' subscriptions who can 'shop' at the Unlimited Clips section. The Marketplace section (where we sell our clips) can be considered a Premium collection that probably serves to attract customers. Granted, it's a bold strategy plan, to offer 100% royalties, but as long as it works for them and us, why not enjoy the benefits?

VB doesn't disappoint so far, sales are picking up fast and the RPD is very nice. I make more per video sale and I sell more videos than on SS and Pond5.

Some here are afraid to sell at VB because they think it'll force the market prices down. VB isn't selling at $10, it's $49. A low price, yes, but not too low.
All this bogus talk about how it destroys the market and endangers your future earnings; that'll happen regardless of VB. When 4K becomes the new norm, HD will become what SD is now. An ever increasing supply will dilute sales anyway in the future. So I'd say, get what you can while you can (if the offer is good of course) and stop trying to control the constant change of the market. You're only missing out on sales.


Thank you sir.  I agree with you 100%.

I get your point, I got your point, I just don't agree.

Well I was watching TV last Thursday and saw one of my clips on ITV prime time and I know that that sold for 400 or more depending on license. If that sold for 30 I would be absolutely gutted. That's why I don't upload my clips to low paying agencies...

And what would you do, if other stock sites start to lower your clips from $79 to $49, because you are under-pricing clips elsewhere? It happened to me.
