News, thoughts and opinions from the drone industry

Pubs, restaurants and shops are reopening; summer is on the way – now is the time to promote your business using a drone!

63 / 100

As there finally seems to be light at the end of the COVID tunnel, businesses start to reopen on 12th April. This, together with summer weather on the horizon (I’m conveniently forgetting the cold snap over Easter), now is the perfect time to promote your business.

There are many ways you can use drones to advertise what you offer so here are a few I’ve thought of:

Pubs and Restaurants

On 12th April, outside beer gardens and eating areas will be able to reopen. However, businesses still need to follow social distancing guidelines and as a result, some of your customers may still be reluctant to return. If you’ve gone to the time and expense of adding special measures, why not take a photo from the air to show the clear separation of tables and one way systems? This will reassure your customers and also show off your property at the same time!

Outdoor sports

Has your golf course, driving range, personal training area or tennis courts been out of use since last year? Let customers know what they are missing by showing the scale of your offering from the air!

Non-essential shops

If you run an independent shop or maybe you’re part of a bigger development such as Bond Street, Chelmsford, why not showcase your business within the local community by advertising it from a unique perspective?

Parkland, woodland walks and outdoor cafes

Is your business a stately home set in acres of picturesque woodland? Or maybe you have a cafe in a riverside setting? The government have recommended people get out in the fresh air as much as they can so why not capture some amazing images to really highlight where you’re positioned!

Our prices start at just £99 + VAT!

These are just a few examples of where a drone can help promote your image and capture the imagination of your prospective customers. Using a drone for marketing purposes is incredibly good value for money and is probably a lot cheaper than you think.

If you just want a selection of high quality photos, our price is just £99 + VAT and, depending on workload, we can normally turnaround the photos on the same day!

If you believe your business would benefit from some video as well, you can add this to your package together with the photos for just £179 + VAT!

Finally, if you want the best of both worlds plus have your video professionally edited and set to music, we can provide this for just £259 + VAT. As the COVID unlocking roadmap progresses, this could be the perfect package for wedding and events businesses.

As we have mentioned many times before, Essex Aerial Photography is a small, local, independent company based in Chelmsford. 2020 has been terrible for businesses across the country so we want to build a sense of community whereby local companies work together to help each other during these difficult times.

If you’ve never thought about using a drone before for your business, now could be the perfect time to reconsider. We will handle everything for you, ensure it is operated safely at all times, adhering to social distancing guidelines and providing a personal, professional service throughout.

We are upfront with our prices which is why we have published them above. However, there will be instances where these vary, for example if the job in question takes longer to complete. Therefore, we are happy to provide a no-obligation free quote. Even if you’re not ready to use us yet, drop us a line anyway and we can answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Blue skies are on the horizon once again. 🙂
