How to Utilize the Most Underrated Marketing Tool by Drone Business Owners: Email Marketing for Lead Gen in 2024

Email marketing remains a vital tool, proven to be up to 40 times more effective than social media for customer acquisition due to its precise, direct audience engagement. How? Because it offers targeted, direct engagement with your audience.


Key Benefits of having an Email List:

  • Direct Communication: Directly connects with current, previous, and potential clients, ensuring visibility.
  • Wide Reach: Expands your audience reach effortlessly, enhancing lead generation.
  • Repeat Business: Strengthens brand recall, fostering ongoing customer relationships.


How to Start and Manage Your Email List

  1. Gather Emails: Compile a list from previous job contacts, website inquiries, and business cards from events into a Google spreadsheet. Only add contacts who have expressed interest or with whom you've directly interacted. Ensure legal compliance by providing clear opt-out options in all emails.
  2. Start with a Simple and Free Platform: You can use something like Mailchimp for its user-friendly interface and automated features, making email creation and scheduling easier.
  3. Develop a Simple Plan: Decide if your goal is general engagement or to promote a new offer. Create a content calendar to help you schedule updates.


Email Frequency and Content

↳ Keep it Simple: Start with a monthly newsletter. This frequency is manageable and won't overwhelm your day-to-day operations. My weekly newsletter takes about 3-4 hours to complete each week. 


Content Ideas - Focus on what's easy for you to share and valuable for your audience, like:

 ↳ Project Highlights: Share recent work or interesting projects.

↳ Industry News: Quick updates on drone technology or regulations that impact your clients.

↳ Educational Content: Create in-depth, value-based blog articles on topics like 'Using Drones for Efficient Energy Infrastructure Inspection'

↳ Clear Call to Action: End each email with a simple CTA, like inviting clients to book a consultation or request for a proposal.


It's time for you to maximize your drone business's potential in 2024 with email marketing. It's a straightforward, powerful way to directly engage clients, expand reach, and drive growth. Simple steps, big results.
