The Drone Trainer Podcast 046 – Michael Brown
This is episode 46 of The Drone Trainer Podcast! This week we’re going to hear from Michael Brown, a drone pilot and creator of Riptide Prints based in Australia. Check this episode out and subscribe on iTunes or Google Play so that you don’t miss this or any of the future podcast episodes!
Michael Brown is an Australia based drone pilot, who identified a need to help drone photographers get their work on walls around the world. Michael found that there are creators that are producing some excellent materials, but don’t have an easy way to market, print, and ship their work around the world. His response? He created Riptide Prints!
As I mention in the introduction to the show, this is a follow-up episode to my chat with Merr Watson in episode 42. Merr spoke positively about her interactions with Riptide Prints, and was a huge fan of taking 80% of the profit for herself. Seriously, 80% profit!
There are a few other website features that caught my eye when browsing at Riptide. The first is that they have a popup that offers up $10 off your first order. That’s a great way to get people interested in your brand, but as Michael mentions in the podcast, it’s also a great way to conduct some behind the scenes tracking. The second is that Riptide Prints is also donating 5% of their sales to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
As Merr mentioned, as well as Tyler last week, selling drone prints can be a lucrative business. There are a bunch of options available for you online and offline, so hopefully these 3 episodes have been a good help in getting you fired up to sell your drone prints!
Oh yeah, I had a lot of questions about this being Australia only, but Michael confirms that it’s worldwide and they have printing and shipping options to and from many major hubs of the world. To test this theory, I’ve created my own gallery on Riptide! Check it out so you can see what the pricing and sizing options look like, and maybe even purchase a print if you like any of the first 9 that I put up there.
