Sell a Video

Sell a video to the press

  • Is your video going viral on social media and you want to profit from it?
  • Do you have a funny or shocking clip that has the potential to go viral?
  • Did you film something newsworthy that the world needs to see?
  • Do you have a video of someone famous that no one else has?

In the fast-paced world of news, video is the new king. People would rather watch stories unfolding in real-time than simply reading them in print – so demand for clips has rocketed.

Even if your footage is shaky or fuzzy or filmed on a mobile phone, we can help.

Our expert editors offer a free service that sees your video turned into the perfect package to make it sellable. We can even add captions or a voiceover if we think it will help. After we’ve made any necessary changes, we’ll place your footage in the international press to ensure you achieve the maximum payment and the maximum exposure.

Our service wont cost you a penny, there is no obligation, and we will never use anything you send us until you give us permission.

How much will I receive if I sell a video?

We will be able to sell your videos to multiple outlets to maximise your earnings.

Exclusive footage of a breaking news events often rakes in the biggest fees, but even clips of wacky pranks caught on camera can be lucrative.

Because we are independent, we will shop around for the best deal.

You will be paid by bank transfer or check.

Sell a video: The next step…

Sell a video here. Simply tell us a little about your content using the Valuation Form on this page, email it to us directly on message@talktothepress.com, or use our dedicated Sell My Video site to upload your footage and send it to us.

Our media experts will assess the content and let you know if the press would be interested in publishing it.

We will probably need to conduct a short interview with you to find out more, and if you’re happy to work with us, we will send you our terms.

By agreeing to them you confirm that you’re happy for us to distribute your content on your behalf, but you remain the copyright holder at all times.

Then, sit back and relax while we do all the hard work.

Keep your video exclusive

Remember, we will be able to get you the highest fee if your video hasn’t been published anywhere before.  Publications pay for exclusivity.  If a friend has shared your footage elsewhere for example, you could end up earning nothing.

For this reason, if you wish to sell a video for the highest fee possible, we ask that you hold off from submitting your content to other outlets.

We also ask that you send us large, unedited files if possible.

We will never use the content you send us without your permission, but some media companies aren’t so trustworthy. Be careful – if your video leaks, its value might diminish.
