If you have arrived here it is because you probably have some pretty cool footage on your phone and you want to share it. What if you could make some money out of it?
Many of us have been before in this kind of situation. Maybe you were sightseeing New York while a plane landed on the Hudson River. Or an accident in central London made you change the route. Or maybe you ended up in the same restaurant where a celebrity was having a lunch. And then, you took out your phone and started shooting a video.
Well, good for you! That footage is really newsworthy. And news channels are out fighting for it actively. You just have to look around to see it. The problem is that they usually don’t like to pay for it. More precisely, don’t want to pay normal people for it. But why shouldn’t you get paid if you have some quality stuff? Don’t they make you pay for that same stuff?
Getting that footage sold was close to impossible unless it was really good. Traditional media usually despise citizen journalists and refuse to pay them. Amateur journos and those starting in the business face similar problems. Some people might not even ask for money, not knowing how valuable is the footage they own. Or maybe they don’t know where to start selling stuff or who they have to contact for it. And here is where Newsflare can help.
