Just one year ago, Videoblocks decided to push its online marketplace forward with an emphasis on 360°/VR video. Turns out that was a pretty good idea, and it is now the largest marketplace for VR stock videos.

Consider the fact that, unlike most stock footage libraries, Videoblocks lets the contributor keep 100% of the money from the product they sell. Clients pay a small membership fee, but contributors pay none. Just upload your footage and wait until someone pays for it.

Videoblocks also gave us advice on what sells in its marketplace. As far as stock footage, the things that sell best are nature, time-lapse, and 4K images. The purchasing rate for 4K footage alone has doubled in the past year. The best advice the team gave was, "Make it authentic."
