I recently sat down for a webinar with the team at Easy Agent Pro (EAP). They're a marketing platform that serves the real estate industry. So of course, we covered some specific drone uses for real estate success. But I also talked about several topics that apply to any industry.
In this chat I gave very specific AND actionable steps for establishing a legit drone operation. So if you want to buy a drone and pass the FAA exam - this webinar is for you.
If you want to start using a drone with your current business - this webinar is for you.
Or if you're already using a drone and want to pick up some helpful tips and tricks - this webinar is for you.
