On April 24, VideoBlocks announced that they are launching a stock Photo Marketplace that will give photographers 100 percent commission from their photos' sales.
VideoBlocks have said that they are on a mission to “democratize stock media” and “provide creative content that everyone can afford” while other photo marketplaces have been dropping photographers' commissions.
“The success of our Video Marketplace, helping artists earn more through our unrivaled 100% commissions, as well as the incredible choice and savings we have passed on to our members, gave us the confidence that we could build a truly different kind of Photo Marketplace,” said TJ Leonard, CEO of VideoBlocks. “Our members told us they were fed up with expiring credits and pricing schemes that required a calculator to figure out what you were paying for an image. They wanted a simple, affordable, on demand photo solution. What better way to do this than to open it up to our talented, creative community to contribute? With this model, everyone wins.”
VideoBlocks says that their new Photo Marketplace will follow the business model of its predecessor, Video Marketplace, which also provides 100 percent to commission to video content creators.
The public seems to be responding well to VideoBlocks' business model. The company was able to surpass 100 million download through Video Marketplace last year, with over 200,000 members.
