CALLING ALL ILLUSTRATOR/ANIMATORS



We’re looking for freelancers who want to illustrate and animate fun stuff and earn royalties for it. Content Creators develop and animate scenes, which are short (usually 5-15 second) modules that Zevo customers select for building their videos. You earn a royalty each time one of your scenes is used in a video. Check it out.  We'd love to have you on-board.

WHY ZEVO?

1. Curated Content

Since Zevo is curated, once you get a scene posted, the chances of your scene being used are extremely good.  We don't want our customers to spend hours wading through scenes that are not useful to them.  Zevo launched with hundreds of scenes, not millions (like stock image sites).  

2. Minimized Competition

While we do allow multiple scenes per concept, we do our best to make sure they are sufficiently different.  This allows Content Creators to own their ideas and minimizes competition, ultimately leading to more scene uses.

3. We Treat You Right

As creators and artists, we know how valuable you are and we want you to stick around.  So we will do our absolute best to make you happy with your experience and your royalties.

4. Big Plans

We're just getting started, but we've got big plans.  There's some very interesting things coming down the pike for Content Creators.  Get started early and grow with us.

RATE STEPS

Rate steps are simply a determination of time-involvement for a scene. Some scenes take little time and others a long time. We want to make sure you are compensated well for your time.

When you finish creating a scene, we use the RATE STEP ESTIMATOR to determine the rate.  You can also use it to get a good idea of rates prior to creating your scenes.  This is particularly helpful when considering STRATEGIES to earn more royalties.

 

HOW DO WE DETERMINE ROYALTIES?

Royalty rates are like anything with a pricing structure.  We're aiming for the sweet spot that ends up being a win-win-win for Zevo, customers and Content Creators.  Lower royalties mean we can charge less for Zevo services which means more sales.  If we were to set higher royalties and charge more to customers, how much would sales suffer?

We think we have a pricing structure that is set for significant quantity of sales and royalties.  It's too early to tell yet, but we'll be keeping a close eye on it.  And we'll adjust as needed for everyone's benefit.
