Hello All

I am in the process of starting a business to take Real Estate and other images. I'd like to showcase some of the great work we see on here.

1) I want to rotate my web page headers etc frequently with new images
2) On my site will be a Gallery of all footage supplied to me, and of those who merely want to showcase their stuff.

My reasoning for this is that there's too much negative news about drones, and I want to remind Everyone that a drone in the hands of a Safety Minded individual is a powerful tool.

Cheers

So you want people to supply you with images for free that you can put them on your own site to sell your own service?
Seriously??

Neil try reading before you start flaming >> " On my site will be a Gallery of all footage supplied to me, and of those who merely want to showcase their stuff."

Obviously you don't understand how marketing works . . . .but i'll lay it out for you . . .people see your images and your contact information and pay you to take their photos.
I've got my own photos bud, been a multimedia specialist for a long time and own 2 companies which generate footage.

I don't need or want to use your images. What I offered was to showcase other pilots and drum up work for everyone, and create a positive reputation for drone pilots.

Guys, the fact that you don't know means you can't see the power of the tool. You're more interested in the flight than the photo.

You've got your hands on something great that can be both fun and financially rewarding.

Here's an example.

Drone Promotions

P.s. the local fire/emergency services organizations are already contacting me and i haven't flown a single hour with my new machine yet.

Still don't know what you're trying to market

@Roddy - Could you please explain exactly what you will be marketing on your website?
Do you have a current site that you can point people to?
If you use photographs or videos supplied by members of this community (or any other source) will you be crediting the original person?
If these supplied images (or video) generate business for the originator will you expect any form of commission?

If you can clarify the above points I think people would be appreciative.
As it stands at the moment - we have no idea exactly what you are marketing and it 'appears' as though you are after sourcing free material to showcase on your own site to possibly further your personal sales.

Being logical-

If you want to drum up work for others why do you not have a gallery of links to others web pages?
It will be less hassle for you in regarding web upkeep (on your part) this will give "everyone that a drone in the hands of a Safety Minded individual is a powerful tool."

It will removal the angst of doubt that others will be doing the leg work and supplying you images for free.

Problem solved......

Yes, the supplier of the images would get credit including links where people could/would contact the owner of the images. Think of it as an art gallery. The gallery never owns the artwork, merely showing it for other artists.
As far as myself or the website getting compensated No ! as far as the website get credit, No!
With enough great content provided the site would become a portal to provide exposure to the great skills from around the globe.
The industry is rife with interest in drones and their capabilities. As a group, we could/would benefit.

As far as sourcing material to showcase, yes but not for myself, rather for the group. You can each post your own vids/stills to other sites or your own sites . . but then the exposure is spread out and not concentrated.
With a group showcasing viewers (and possibly customers) would then see the benefits.

Obviously, this group has not put a lot of thought towards profiting from the tool that they have. That's o.k. I merely have the resources skill and knowledge to pull it together.
Regardless if you decide you want to participate or not, I am still proceeding. So it's your choice.

I already have huge support from people and businesses alike in my area, so content for me is not an issue. Just though some people without my resources could stand to gain.

Cheers

Why if this is all going on your business website where you actually sell your services as a drone operator to real estate agents etc then why on earth would you want to be showcasing other peoples images/videos that could well be better than yours and lose a prospective client that has to come to your site to book you and then seen the work of someone else and thought he looks better??

Thank you for your response but you have still not answered my first two questions, namely:
What exactly are you marketing specifically on your site?
Do you currently have a website/URL you can share so that we can have a look at it?
If you are mearly 'showcasing' other people's work 'like an art gallery' as you put it and you are not taking any commission, payment or consideration for doing this, where are your costs of hosting the site being recouped or are you a registered charity? - What's in it for you?

You may be the kindest person ever but I just cannot see your business model.

All this costs you money. Guys on here are naturally suspect however will give you a fair crack of the whip if you actually articulate how this is all achieved.

Why would you advertise your competition for free?

I think you are assuming we are all idiots and are incapable or somehow ignorant of how to show our own work to the local market that would possibly be demanding our services.
As a commercial operator, what you are offering is of no value to me. So when you come on here trying to get us simple folk involved in your grand scheme to 'market' drone services in general and making use of our content, it seems a bit fishy.
Plus the whole passive aggressive attitude isn't doing you any favours. Yes, many of us have thought of profiting off the tool we own, and are doing so quite successfully, no need to pretend that you have some sort of magic bullet or special abilities that will enable us to reach a wider audience.
If you can explain what resources you do have that would actually benefit commercial operators, that would be a start.

Gruv (and others . . ) I am a resource for web hosting and domains. I have been a multimedia specialist for 20+ years which means none of the hosting, creation and website development costs me anything.
Not everyone has the ability, skill, time, or desire to create and maintain a website. and for me to maintain links and access to hundreds of other sites is not an effective use of my time or yours.

You wanna prove you're capable of doing it on your own . . then post your site links . .

otherwise i'll bid you skeptics and haters ado !

Roddy,
I put my faith in the fact that EVERY single reply to your post is wise to your bullcrap. We don't need to post our websites to prove to you that we are capable of doing it on our own because we already are.

Good luck on your scam.

Ok, so you're godaddy.com?
Yea, I've built more than a few sites, not going to link them here because I don't feel the need to prove myself to you.
I still don't understand how you are going to use my photos to market my services in my area.
