Have thousands of images there, and no single sales for over a month.

Please keep the suggestions and feedback coming. What do you want to see next?

The option to choose a different thumbnail for footage files, because sometimes Fotolia automatically picks a frame that doesn't showcase the content properly (and this may hurt sales, just like a display window that's entirely black doesn't attract customers)

100% agreed!

Ask yourself this:

Do I need money NOW?

What is this clip likely to earn over the next 5 years?

Can I redo something similar without too much effort?
Let me be the first to say: charge $5K or more. Keep in mind that if the full rights to an image (photo or illustration) can be sold for a couple of thousands, then a well shot video should be worth much more than that.

Take the expected revenue for the clip for the next 3-5 years, triple that and add some markup. Otherwise, what's the point, right?

Also consider who you're selling to and what they plan to do with it. They're not requesting a buyout for nothing. Bigger companies can afford more. All in all, don't cut yourself short.
I'd take current sales for a year, or extrapolate to get a years worth of figures... multiply it by four and that's probably a reasonable price. Two years would probably be fair, but then your also adding a bit of a markup and accounting for if your clip becomes more popular over time.

You'll probably get a bunch of people saying you should charge $5K, but how realistic is it anybody is going to pay that? They'd be cheaper hiring a professional to shoot it for them. And if it's making you $25 to $50 a month then that's maybe a bit extreme.

Take the $1K or whatever it works out to, go and shoot a new version of the clip, and everyone's a winner!

Thank you guys for all the input, I appreciate it so much. Honestly, at first I think I'm going to charge them $500. After hearing all your opinions most likely I'll be more confident to go over $1K.

Hi guys,

Somebody contacted me and he wants to buy one of my footage with all the rights.
What do you think is a fair price? The footage is city timelapse.

Thank you :)

Wow. That's crazy!  :o

It might not be as stupid as it sounds. If this guy is the author of that '140 effects' pack on Videohive, and he was non-exclusive so he was allowed to sell it elsewhere, then it makes perfect sense. On Envato he gets the gross equivalent of $0.24 per clip, every time it sells.

After Envato get their cut, that works out to $0.17 per clip. On his own site, with no commission, he gets $1.00 per clip.

Obviously I'd never specifically create content just for $1.00 per clip minus commission, unless I knew they were going to sell hundreds of times a month... but if somebody already has an existing pack of multiple clips elsewhere, which isn't exclusive... then splitting them out into individual assets and selling them here could be a reasonable additional revenue stream. That's if the site takes off and gets a decent amount of buyers, of course.

I agree with you.

As far as I know, You should send them your video via hardisk or DVD.

Yes, Me too. don't know what's going on.

Yap videohive is the best for selling template.
Pond5 and Videoblocks are the same for me. But you got 100% in VB.

This is color grading software, most people use it to get cinematic look.

Any one ever heard this stock? They over package video and I think it's a good idea :)

. review system :(

Just crazy, I'm doing 3D (motion graphics) videos, Only have 500 videos over 2 years work on it.

But this guy, I have no idea. Maybe He has more sales than me . lol
Could be. I just searched for "food intro" and most of the clips on the search result are from this port.
Well, if we talk review, I just saw 600 illustrations (not vector) of a marijuana leaf on white in 600 colors, all in one chunk, this is no worse IMO ;D

Yeah,  because when I searched kind a food video, his videos is on popular section. When the first time I saw his video I think "It's good video, with panning technique" then I jump to his port and see all his videos with the same "technique" and I realize that this is just fu**ing still images lol
