GraphicRiver is a digital marketplace where people can go to sell stock images, logos, and designs that they have created as a hobby, as a means of promoting themselves, or even as a way to earn a full time income.

GraphicRiver is a subsidiary of Envato, who claims their mission is to help people “earn and learn online.” They operate marketplaces where “hundreds of thousands” of people buy and sell digital goods every day, as well as a network of educational blogs which help people learn creative skills.

Envato says that the top authors on their marketplaces can earn between $20,000 and $50,000 per month selling their stock image, and it is free to create an account on any of their websites.

How to Upload content on GraphicRiver?

First, you need to create an Envato account(this works for all marketplace) by simply signing up. Then, there is a MCQ based test one needs to pass in order to publish their content. This is related to the Rules and Conditions of the Marketplace and is pretty easy(yes! you can guess all of the answers).

You can then upload content to your portfolio. This item can be a kick ass logo,  a psd party flyer, a tee shirt design, a mock up template etc. Either through FTP or their uploader, you can put up your files to the marketplace.

You then have to wait for a reviewer to review you design and if he/she approves your idea, the item gets published and you are notified via email. Normally this takes up to 7 days though there is no guarantee. Also, the price of your item is set according to the marketplace rates.

  3. Payoneer Card
  4. Skrill(MoneyBookers) – minimum payout at $ 50

Conclusion

Similarly, other Envato marketplaces work the same way too. Feel free to check them out below:

 

This week, we review VideoHive. It’s like iStockPhoto but for videos, and can save you literally thousands of dollars in expensive video production.

It’s super easy to use: VideoHive is basically licenses to videos that you can fully customize. So, you remember the old UPS whiteboard commercials that have become really popular? I’m going to show you an example of that, just so you can wrap your head around what you can do with it.

So hopefully, you get the idea. You can customize all of that text, you can add your company logo. And the only thing you need to do that is the program Adobe AfterEffects. You edit it yourself. This video, for example, costs 30 bucks for the license. That’s something that would cost you thousands and thousands of dollars to go make on your own.

Also they have fancier videos at their disposal. If you want videos with 4D cinema, after effects and motion effects, Video Hive has them. You can then use a video editing program to customize the videos to your specific message you are trying to get across.

Animated logo by sound in Cinema 4D Project allows you to make your own 3D intro which will move by your sound.

Pros:

High quality professional videos gives you and your site credibility and authority.
Sort videos by various criteria (date, title, author, price, rating, etc.) to help you nail down the videos you need.
Earn money though Video Hive by selling your own stock if you wish.
Save money and time by buying cheap quality videos instead of spending a fortune to have them created for you or doing them yourself.

Cons:

Videos aren’t geared towards typical internet marketing niches like weight loss and insurance, but with some creativity you can make them relevant.

So, videohive.net, a lot of good stuff to play with on there. Go check it out, hopefully you can utilize it for your own company.
