Pond5: A Great Way To Make Money With Your Video Footage

Pond5 stock footage agency offers you one of the most common and FUN ways to make money with your video footage. While we were at NAB in April, I shot this short video during a visit to Pond5‘s booth. Pond5 is not just one of the largest stock agencies in the world, it is also one that we have used and highly recommend.

In this video I tell you:

  • How Pond5 works, i.e., how and when they’ll pay you;
  • The difference between selling your footage for editorial or commercial use;
  • What you need to have when you shoot stock footage – if you don’t have this, it will limit your income potential BIG time.

(If for some reason you weren’t able to watch this video on this page, click here to watch it on YouTube.)

Next week, I’ll post a follow up video on using Pond5 for your own videos. So check them out and see what type of footage you have in your library that you can start making some money on!
