A RECENT VIDEO THAT MADE THE NEWS
A Texas man, who says he was looking for a place to fish on his day off, was threatened by a man with a handgun.
Unknown to the man with the gun, the tipster was videotaping the entire altercation on his phone. The tipster caught his would-be murderer threatening him on tape. He also captured the shooter firing after him while he made his escape.
He then got in touch with us at Talk to the Press and we got the story published in The Sun. The story was also shared with The Daily Mail and The New York Post, both of whom published the story.
SELLING VIDEO CONTENT TO THE INTERNATIONAL PRESS
After saving the video and contacting the authorities, the tipster realized the video might be of interest to the press. He sent it in and was surprised by the money he made off of it.
He contacted Talk to the Press, using our online form.
After an interview with one of our reporters, he sent us court documents and a police report to back up his claims and the reporter writing the story reached out to all concerned parties.
HOW MUCH CAN YOU MAKE
The reporter then called The Sun with the story and the video. After seeing the extraordinary clip, the Sun agreed to purchase the exclusive publishing rights to the story.
The piece was published online and the video was viewed thousands of times. We then paid the tipster for sending in the video.
After The Sun was done with its 24-hour exclusivity period, the tipster received 50% of the money we made off of the story. He also made 50% off of all the other outlets we sold to.
Talk to the Press works with all major international media companies, as well as most U.S. based outlets. Our mission at Talk to the Press is to help tipsters make money. Anything we earn, our tipsters earn half. We want to make as much money as possible for everyone involved.
