Part 1 of a 5 part series
Drones are here to stay, love it or hate it; the fact remains we will continue see these little robotic helpers more and more in our everyday lives. What was originally dismissed as a novelty for the general business owner, and only reserved for hush, hush black operations within the military community is now a legitimate tool for an ever-growing amount of businesses.
Many business owners are struggling with the thought of how they can use drone technology in their own business arena. Whether you are a small production company looking for a better way to capture video footage, a small organic farmer looking for ways to increase crop yields, or a survey company looking for a way to get more accurate land plot data quicker, drone technology is available today to help solve your unique issues.
Today’s drones are easier to use, more cost effective and more feature rich than ever before. You don’t need to have a technical background in aviation, radio controlled aircraft or computers to benefit. You just need an open mind and the desire to try something new. In fact, these days you don’t even have to own a drone. There are many service providers popping up everyday that you can hire to handle all aspects of putting a drone in the sky for your benefit.
Over the next few weeks we will be looking at drone use for the small business owner in more detail. We will provide information designed to allow you to answer these important questions.
- Can I afford this?
- Does this make sense for my business?
- What type of drone would work for my business?
- Do I buy a drone, or hire a service provider?
- What about insurance issues?
I hope you will stop by next week as we begin to dive in deeper into this exciting new frontier. In the end I think you will see that the question really is not “if” your business can benefit from using drones, but more likely “when” your business will begin to reap the great rewards of this newest form of automation.
