    Hey looking for advice - I posted a video thats starting to go viral and has been picked up by several big sites. I've received about 6 offers from companies who want to license the video in the last 2 days. Don't know much about licencing but wondering whats a good price to sell at or rev share from anyone with experience.

    If you have six offers why not take the best one? Act fast before the next viral video comes along. Don't be too greedy just be smart with considering the offers.

    Just think this way : If you think your video will reach 1 mil views, then on adsense you will make from 800$ to 1k / milion !
    Now find your price :)

    License it like Motion Elements and Shutterstock? Depending on the video you could charge $10-$100 or more per download, and then you have to figure out the uses for it. How long is the video?
