great video!!!
what i had predicted is coming true...subscription plans are affecting sales on other agencies too...so for the one who thought that submitting to subscription plans like storyblock won't affect their sales elsewhere hard times are coming...

Solution:

a) Don't upload to subscription sites.
b) Start your own subscription site.

While yes - some types of content will most likely become saturated - there are still 'unique' types of shots that I would pay more for if it suited my project. But if I can find that 'unique' shot on a subscription site (because someone was desperate) - then of course I would just go with the subscription site.

I think what WILL happen is:

There will be a bit of an 'equilibrium'. The "subscription" agencies seem to forget that what made them "big" was standing on the shoulders of other people. They make money because of users submitting content. Without those content creators, they'd make $0.

Not that they will be "hurting" any time soon (i.e., envato, motionarray, storyblocks, etc) - because they already have a large content pool. (I think they will still make LOTS of money for years to come).

BUT, they'll likely see a huge slowdown in "new" submitted content - simply because it won't be profitable for content creators to submit new content. So their collection will become stagnant. It will still of course make lots of money - (it's like a casino saying they are "losing" money because intead of making a $150 MILLION dollar "profit", they are "only" making a $120 million profit. It's still "profit" (revenue - expenses = net profit) - but they will spin it saying they "lost" $30 million dollars. (No, they "made" a huge profit, just not as much as they wanted).

Taking good videos, and processing them is much harder than images.

And so I think there will still be a market for that.

I only joined SB a short time ago and had uploaded 70 videos there. I'm about to delete them all. I joined Pond 5 at about the same time and have a similar sized port over there and have had a few sales as well. No sales on SB at all. Well, my relationship with SB was brief and non-eventful.
