They have several types of resources, but my favorites are the music at and After Effects projects, lower thirds, and backgrounds at The music at audiojungle is great because you can find music that works with the latest trends in broadcasting and the licensing rates are great. The full-length clips average around $14, stings are around $6-8. And they're royalty-free. They are my go-to production music site. has an amazing collection of After Effects projects, backgrounds, and lower thirds and they are very popular with clients. After Effects Projects average around $12, backgrounds around $8, and lower third packs $6.
