Introducing the Member Library Partner Program
A new, balanced solution for contributing artists and members alike
What is the Partner Program?
The Member Library Partner Program is our new model for how contributing artists license their content through Storyblocks. They submit content to the Member Library, and earn based on how often it’s downloaded. It allows us to offer more content in our Member Library than ever before while fairly valuing it with the contributors we source from.
We’ve been working towards an important milestone—increasing the size of our Member Library by 10x.
Thanks to the Partner Program, we’ve finally hit that goal!
How does this benefit you?
When we officially launched the Partner Program, we also made the decision to close the pay-per-clip Marketplace. Overwhelmingly, Members like you didn’t want to see pay-per-clip content on our site that wasn’t included with a subscription, and less than 5% of you ever purchased from the Marketplace.
What this means is: no more additional fees, no more complicated explanations on what is or isn’t included with your subscription, and no need to filter by library. Plus, thanks to the Partner Program, your Video Member Library will continue to grow with fresh content from a carefully selected group of contributors.
How does this benefit Artists?
Partner Program contributors are able to reach an emerging creative audience full of YouTube creators, freelance editors, and hobbyists, and maximize earnings across their portfolio. As the Storyblocks community grows, contributors grow in lock step. This model also sets them up for more consistent, stable earnings than they had with our Marketplace model.
Where are we headed?
The Partner Program positions us to continually grow the Video Member Library with some of the best contributing artists out there. A diverse, growing Member Library means being able to fuel creativity and provide inspiration for the mass creative class – a new generation of storytellers, including hobbyists, freelancers, and experts alike. We believe in these creatives. In providing an accessible library of high-quality video content, we hope to give each and every one an opportunity to create like pros at any level in the industry.
