We’ve recently partnered with Getty Images to give you another way to make money with your drone.
Your best videos and images can now be submitted through DroneBase and featured on Getty, putting you in the position to receive royalties from sales to millions of media buyers around the world.
To begin, we’re looking for epic videos of Cityscapes. Whether you’ve got footage of spectacular skylines going to waste on your hard drive or you’re looking for an excuse to fly, getting listed on Getty has never been easier.
Just in case you need convincing, here are five reasons to submit footage to Getty Images with DroneBase.
Monetize your portfolio
As we mentioned above, our new partnership with Getty gives you a chance to monetize some of the footage you’ve got lying around. Instead of going to waste on your hard drive, your best shots can now be listed on Getty and sold to buyers around the world.
You’ll get paid at least $50 every time your video sells on Getty. And it gets even better: Because clips can be purchased more than once, your best work could go on to receive payouts in the hundreds of dollars. Finally a chance to make use of your back catalogue!
Gain industry exposure
Getty is an established marketplace for all things media, and many organizations’ go-to platform for professional videos and images. With that in mind, getting your work listed on Getty is a fantastic opportunity to gain exposure for your skills and services.
In no time your drone footage could be supplementing news stories in major publications or helping businesses market their services. Who knows where that could lead?
Become a better drone pilot
Our partnership with Getty gives you the opportunity to master your skills with minimal risk. Getty Images isn’t a client you can upset or put off with a video that isn’t up to scratch. If your work is good enough, it’ll be accepted. If it isn’t, you can try submitting at a later date.
Submitting through DroneBase means you can improve your skills behind the controls without the pressure. We’ll give you the exact specifications you need to meet before you take off. The rest is up to you!
Who doesn’t want to earn without having to get out of bed? Once your footage is listed on Getty Images you can sit back and relax as the orders come in. You could even end up getting paid multiple times for a video you shot months ago.
Build up a big enough stock of content on Getty and you could have an enviable stream of passive revenue every month. At the moment we’re focusing on Cityscapes, but there will be plenty more opportunities for pilots announced in the near future.
