Perhaps the most obvious way to view a drone in the context of marketing is the drone as a tool.
Specifically, the drone is a camera that will be able to record from perspectives that used to require a lot of time, effort, and money.
Whereas marketers in the past needed cranes and helicopters – and the associated costs of each – to record from aerial viewpoints, current marketers only really need a drone.
Whether you’re a real estate agent taking pictures of a large property or an architect taking videos of skyscrapers, drones are becoming the ideal way to obtain breath-taking aerial shots.
Drones As A Platform
Drones can travel almost anywhere, which makes them an ideal advertising platform.
Traditionally, marketing consisted of print ads, TV commercials, billboards, and Internet ads, but drones provide new opportunities that marketers can take advantage of.
Whereas advertising platforms such as signs and billboards are stationary and passive, drones can take a company’s message to people directly and aggressively.
For instance, some advertisers are using drones to their advantage by using them to hold banners and posters at large events.
Drone advertisements, depending on local law, can fly almost anywhere.
Potential customers at the park or in an office building are now directly reachable, making drone advertising its own platform full of potential to engage the public.
Unlimited Creativity Potential
In addition to the numerous straightforward ways marketers can use drones as a tool, they can also use the technology’s unlimited potential for creativity.
That is, a drone doesn’t just have to be a character, a billboard, or a camera; it can also be a component of art.
When done right, drones can be a powerful means of performance art that will leave a lasting impression of your brand with your target audience.
Drone technology will likely continue to evolve and expand, and, as such, it’s important for marketers to keep themselves informed of these advancements.
People are still figuring out new uses for drones and as the technology improves, novel utility will increase.
If marketers can stay ahead of the curve, it will not be difficult for them to use drone technology to create new, exciting, and visually pleasing advertising material.
