Our question today is actually coming from a recent discussion in the Drone U community. We have a member who approached another pilot (not in our community) regarding the fact that he was way undercharging for his services. The problem with the “undercharger” and their low-price strategy is it devalues the expertise of drone pilots in general. We understand that those new in the industry may be hesitant to charge more than they feel they are “worth.” They also want to use it as a way to grow their business faster. Both are legitimate concerns and thoughts. However, balance is key here, and the “undercharger” needs to beware of longer term affects.
So how does one get started without having a negative impact on the industry as a whole? What’s a better strategy than trying to become a virtual WWE wrestler known as, “The Undercharger?” We go into specifics on how Paul got started, and some practical strategies you can implement to balance charging less until you advance your piloting skills. Paul even goes into how he charges for his packages. So this is a great episode to really get valuable help to get started and/or refine your drone videography business.
