Videos are very important in the modern marketing world. Messages have to be delivered fast and entertain people. During the last years, there was a huge increase in the demand for videos all across the social media platforms and on the web generally.
There are places that you can download royalty-free videos for your projects. Some resources are absolutely free at no costs, like Cover, or there are paid options like Videoblocks.
The beautiful homepage welcomes visitors with a video loop as expected.
The main headline underlines…

All the material meets professional standards and you have access to a huge library of videos.
How it Works
Search – 115K+ library clips, 690K marketplace clips, 800K HD and 4k videos
Download – All members can download with no restrictions from the library and they get a 40% discount in the marketplace.
Create – Take videos, templates, and backgrounds into your favorite editor. They are yours to keep forever, 100% royalty-free.
If you are a content creator you can join their selling platform and grant commissions of 100%.
In control – all the content sold through Videoblocks is non-exclusive so you can keep your relationship with other agencies as well. You can upload and remove content at will, no strings attached.
An audience waiting – they are in business for over 5 years now and they have acquired millions of customers who downloaded more than 40 million stock files.
The community wins, we win – They promise to treat anyone with honesty, trust and care.100% commissions are not just a rate, it is their commitment to your success.
The answer is really simple…
The members have access to the library plus the marketplace. In order to have access to the library, the members pay monthly or annual fees. You upload content to the marketplace, in which the material sold separately to the members or external customers, like an online shop. Videoblocks keep the membership fees and uploaders grant commissions from the sales that take place in the marketplace.
That unique and innovative model allows Videoblocks to offer low prices while at the same time, uploaders earn money from each sale.
The only fees that may apply are those of third parties, like banks or money processors.

Videoblocks was founded in 2009 with one mission…To provide premium creative content that anyone could afford.CEO, Joel Holland, while still in high school with some fellow students started a small TV show that focused on helping kids figure out what they want to do with their lives.
In one instance Joel interviewed Arnold Schwarzenegger but the footage was not professional. Then Joel decided to create a company that would make stock video affordable to everyone, regardless of the budget.
After high school, Joel traveled to over 30 cities in the USA shooting video, editing in the hotel room and selling clips in order to buy the next plane ticket and hotel room. Fast forward 8 years, Videoblocks has not over 35 employees.

The standard membership at Videoblocks is really affordable as I already mentioned. It costs $99 / year. This is the membership I am using right now.
That means that for one whole year you have access to over 100K videos in the library to download.No restrictions are attached and the content belongs to you forever.
$99 for 100K videos calculating gives us $0.001 per video. Pretty amazing, is not it?
I am more than satisfied with the quality and the number of their videos. I am sure you won’t regret it.
This costs $198 / year. But it gives you access to the 4K videos, it unlocks the option of adding team members, saves time with batch downloading from project folders, downloads directly to Dropbox, receive priority support with a dedicated account representative, custom & signed license agreements.
