Today’s episode is about pricing drone services. Scott from Denver calls in with an interesting proposal for pricing his work as a drone pilot. He has come up with a unique way to price his drone services and wants ADU’s feedback on his pricing structure.
We debate about the pros and cons of charging by the minute. We talk about the ways that such a pricing structure could fail or succeed and discuss situations in which charging by the minute would make sense. Thanks for sparking an interesting debate, Scott! Let us know how it goes! Fly safe!
