Questions About Enterprise
Enterprise is a new platform bringing an expanded market of potential customers to our contributors. As you most likely know, TV and advertising markets represent a large customer base with substantial purchasing power. The Enterprise platform meets the needs of these markets with a specialized licensing option—one that includes enhanced indemnification and unlimited distribution. The Enterprise platform allows us to reach a new audience we didn’t serve previously by including these new offerings and, ultimately giving you another avenue to earn through VideoBlocks and GraphicStock. The Enterprise channel is supported by our dedicated Enterprise sales team who build the partnerships that will drive your Enterprise sales.
No! We are adding Enterprise to our collection of services to grow our audience. Our core business model and the Marketplace have not changed. Enterprise is a new channel for you to reach customers you could not reach before and earn more with VideoBlocks and GraphicStock than you would with your Marketplace sales alone.
Because the creative community is the foundation of our business, we want to underscore our support of contributors by providing a 60% revenue share on all Enterprise sales, in addition to the 100% commission we offer on regular Marketplace sales. Supporting the Enterprise channel requires new investments from VideoBlocks, so the other 40% of Enterprise revenue will go towards servicing these customers, such as building tools for account management, monthly invoicing, unlimited user seats, and staffing a dedicated sales and support team. This model will give a greater portion of revenue back to contributors than any other enterprise-level stock content platform.
