Coming to the question what is stock videography? Stock videography is very much similar to stock photography it's just instead of a photo without brand names or any identical property you are selling a video. Not to forget that in comparison with stock photography, stock videos pay you much much higher. Yes, that is right, let's say for example an image purchased by a person has a plan with the leading websites which they have subscribed to you will get maybe $1 or $5-$10 per image. However, with stock videography, you can easily make $20, $30 to an extent of $300-$500 per video. I am not even kidding about it.

All you need is a decent camera it may be a DSLR or a smartphone camera. Nowadays, smartphone cameras are no less than having a DSLR in your pocket. Also, another back drop of a DSLR here is that you do not always carry it with yourself. So on a daily basis or in your regular working days you plan to shoot videos it will be from your smartphones. Also shooting a $K video from the mobile phone devices now is not a big thing at all! There are phones starting at the price of 15,000 Rs have a camera capability to shoot 4K videos. I use my Oppo Reno 10X Zoom for all my projects. With a tripod and a selfie stick.

I have nearly 100-150 stock videos uploaded on multiple sites which includes Shutterstock, Adobestock, Pond5, Vimeostock, etc. I know what are you thinking, that you will upload all the pictures first on all the websites and then you have to invest time in uploading videos as well? Actually, you do not need to do that as Blackbox is a one-stop solution for it.

What is Blackbox? Blackbox is a platform that helps the creators of the stock videos to upload their work on multiple platforms by submitting them on just Blackbox. That's right when you upload a video on Blackbox and the video is approved, Blackbox will the go and publish your video on a few of the below websites. Shutterstock, Adobestock, Pond5, Vimeostock, etc.

Now if you remember, for these videos or photos to get discovered we need to tag them and I agree there is no platform for the images to get tagged by other users but on Blackbox, you get an option that you can simply upload a video and search for a curator who can add tags to your video. But that comes with an added cost. Blackbox provides you nearly 70-80% of the revenue you generated by the sale of your video. So you can either generate the tags for your videos yourself or you can hire a Blackbox curator to do that for you. For every project Blackbox allows you to set up commission fees that you can share with the curator. It can vary from 10%-40% Which means every time your video is sold you will get you to share and thee curator will receive the percentage which you have set up for them.

You would be wondering if you share that percentage of the amount with the curator what is the amount you will get? You still can just make enough! every time you sell a video it gets you a minimum of $20-$30 also depending on the resolution of your video.

If your video is a 4K video there is high possibility you will receive a minimum of $100 for the purchase out of which even if you decide to give 15% to the curator you are left with $85! Now that's easy earning I would say for doing a one time upload. All you need to do is signup at the BlackBox website and upload your videos. I will be sharing a detailed article on how to upload the videos on BlackBox with you shortly.
