Today’s show is about marketing a new drone business.
Our caller for today, Ian is all of 16, and he just got his Part 107 license. Like most drone pilots, Ian wishes to start off with real estate before moving on to more complicated (and lucrative) jobs. But, he is finding himself discouraged by the intense competition. How can Ian make a dent in a marketplace dotted with older, far more experienced pilots? And how can he come up with a great and irresistible offer?
Drawing from their considerable experience, Rob and Paul share some nuanced tips to help Ian out. Among other things, you will learn how to leverage autonomous systems to massively scale up your business. You will also get some branding tips so that you can showcase your skills in the right way. Thanks for the great question, Ian. Fly Safe!
