  1. Those of you that want to market to Golf Courses should take a moment to check this out https://fusion.realtourvision.com/107089 It's an interactive scorecard product that utilizes aerial drone photography and the Fusion virtual tour system. These will sell for about $300 bucks a hole. I'm here to help if you're interested in making one.
  2. Hello Michael. The real estate side of this is certainly "Turn and Burn" however if you streamline things enough and dial it in Henry Ford style it can be quite profitable. Most of the aerial drone pilots that we associate with charge a flat fee for package A, which includes, X, Y, and Z and so on. Each package may grow incrementally and contain more still photos and more video as you go from package to package. This would be for residential. When it comes to commercial most of the guys and gals out there are charging an hourly or several hundred dollars per minute. See the vast difference
  3. Hello everyone! We have about 130 slots left. Hope to see you on the show this coming Tuesday https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/102912498043475469
  4. Feel free to review our pricing at https://www.bluelavamedia.com/pricing/ I should have posted that sooner on the thread. We have not increased it in a few years and will likely do so when we add the live chat, live text and live video to our productions here this Fall. You can see our productions here https://tours.BlueLaVaMedia.com the guys have really come a long way! Two of our three pilots have been with us since 2016.
  5. Hello everyone! You're all more than welcome to come to our webinar next week if you would like to learn about property lines, calls outs, and droppers! It's a great way to stand out, look unique and make more money with your drone videos. You can register for the up and coming show here - https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/102912498043475469 Hope to see you there! Sincerely, Jason
  6. Hello UAV Coach Community! I hope everyone is having a good summer given the circumstances. I've been wanting to start a thread dedicated to helping folks out with sales and marketing for awhile now but could not seem to find the time. @Alan Perlman it's fantastic to see the community continue to grow and thrive! I've had the pleasure of meeting quite a few folks from this group over the phone and I must say you're all a great bunch! I thought I would kick things off here by inviting anyone interested in real estate drone sales & marketing to our webinar next week. We have a very special
  7. If you get good with lightroom and photoshop you should be good to go! All of the MLS boards are different. You should be able to get all the specs by reaching out to the real estate board. If you call ask them how much it costs to become an affiliate member too. During the conversation ask the questions you want to ask. Sometimes they only talk to you if they're going to sell you something. Keep that in mind before you call. They're not all easy to work with. We're very lucky with our MLS as they're very kind and post our tours for us. Everyone above is correct. Learn to do as much as
  8. The very best way to approach this is to work directly with agents. Home seller approach is not something I would tell you not to do but stick with it, put out an excellent product and you'll quickly find that you'll attract realtors that want to look better, sell faster, and stand out. We started up our Traverse City Real Estate Photography (and now also a drone business) in 2007. Work on your packages, service offerings and pricing. If you put together a nice menu of real estate marketing services you'll thrive. Big word of advice here is for you to not ONLY focus on drone but also your
  9. @Dave Pitman Thank you for sharing that link above!!! I took a few minutes just now and set up https://www.BlueLaVaMedia.com on your portal. We have three aerial drone pilots on our team and over the last two seasons we've been picking up more and more sailing projects. 95% of our drone business is real estate related but the commercial side is picking up more and more each year. In 2019 we did close to 350 aerial drone operations for local realtors and about 20 commercial shoots. Sure enough we landed another sailing shoot last year! I will tell you guys and girls back here that these sai
  10. Hello there everyone! RTV at www.RealTourVision.com is gearing up for a great 2020 with more of our national accounts requesting aerial drone photography and video. If you have not set up a profile in our Tour Track system and would like to create a profile please feel free to set up an account here - https://manage.realtourvision.com/trial.php?refid=54324&p=v+s+p+sp+ Please note that our system allows aerial drone pilots to pick up jobs from our accounts as well as utilize our image delivery and boost marketing system. We allow you to not only deliver your finished product to your cust
  11. Good afternoon Alan Perlman & Company! Spring is officially here and with it comes blue skies, green grass and hopefully a lot of drone orders!! For RTV, this Spring also means some very significant system updates that we are super stoked to deliver and share back here in the group. Most notably is our new 1080 Adaptive Streaming. This update means some great things for UAV pilots as well as folks that do full-on walkthrough videos. Those interested in our full feature update and release video can review the entire update here in this Update Video Be sure to check out examples
  12. We essentially set up a menu of service offerings that include everything from still photos, aerial drone sessions and more. You can see all of our property marketing packages here - http://bluelavamedia.com/pricing/ Thank you Philip!
  13. Have you thought about offering floor plans with your property marketing services? I would recommend a couple of floor plan solutions. First and foremost I like to recommend Magic Plan by Sensopia. http://www.sensopia.com Mostly because it just works and literally anyone can do it with just a little practice. Check it out. The other one that I've begun hearing good things about is Measure Tap which was created by my friends over at Occipital. They make the really slick 3D scanner that goes on an iPhone or Droid. Their product is showing some promise and is called Tap Measure https://tapm
  14. Those of you getting suited up to sell and market to real estate agents, home builders or developers should take some time and review some hard-hitting stats that you can include in your marketing materials. For BlueLaVaMedia pieces we simply google "Professional Real Estate Photography Statistics" Keep in mind that professional still photos are at the very core of selling to realtors. Realtors MUST have still photos to list and sell properties. So...you have something that they must have in order to even put the listing on the MLS (multiple listing service). To get started I recommend tha
  15. Jay will be hosting a show tomorrow night everyone. Please feel free to drop on by. Read more about tomorrow night's webinar here https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/7447741410847624707 All about picking up gigs in 2018. Keep in mind that 95% of our gigs are virtual tours and still photos. We do have two major hotel brands 8000+ hotels asking us about drone packages and pricing so it is coming. Currently, we have three national accounts that include aerial drone work. Hope to see you there!
