This Year’s Holiday Wish list

Aerial Video Drone

It’s not just a totally cool piece of equipment, it’s also an awesome selling tool. Don’t just take photos of your completed projects, bring them to life with fly-through videos that you can add to your company website or Facebook page. Showing videos to homeowners on an iPad will allow them to virtually walk through a design and see it from every angle, potentially visualizing how they would live in that space at their own home. Inexpensive drones are available just about everywhere, but if you’re a serious shopper, read PC Magazine’s Best Drones of 2015.
