    2. Stand out from the Crowd with your Profile The hardest part of being a freelance UAV pilot is having the ability to get your skills set recognized above and beyond every other pilot or service provider you are competing with. Think of your UAVLance profile as the front page of a book. If it does not look interesting to the reader, no matter how good the content is, they are probably going to put it down and move on to another one.

    I. Tailor your UAVLance profile to suit your niche. When you describe yourself in your profile make sure you cater to the type of clients and jobs that you want to land. For example, if you are a skilled UAV inspector, describe how your inspection or equipment will fulfill the needs of your clients. Utilize your profile to demonstrate your strengths, show how you provide solutions and add value to your client. If you can get all of this across whilst being able to remain pleasant, cordial and professional, you will stand out from the crowd and create your own uniqueness about who you are, what you do and how you fly. Also, take time to do the little things: ensure spelling and grammar are impeccable; display excellent communication with your clients; and show you can really be a team player.

    II. Be selective with your profile photo If you want to be an expert freelance pilot, then make sure that your profile photo conveys that you are in fact an expert freelance pilot. This is the time that your Facebook profile picture, or emojicon can probably take a back seat. Ensure that you have a head and shoulders shot that shows you in a professional, friendly and expert manner. Or use your company logo Whatever shot you decide on, it is better than nothing, as leaving it blank is a sure way to turn off prospective clients and lose credibility and trust.

    III. Show everyone your skills To take your UAVLance profile a step further you need to convey to prospective clients that you know what you are doing. There is no better way of showing this than completing your UAV Skills Assessments. UAVLance Skills Assessments are an array of tests that you can take that show clients that you really know what you are doing. Skills show that you are proficient

    in your area of expertise and help you build an even stronger case to help you land your next freelance piloting job.

    IV. Display a portfolio of your work and keep it updated. Clients want to know what you are capable of doing. There is no easier way of showing clients how good you are in your services niche than by keeping an up to date portfolio of your finest work. Make sure your portfolio shows off your areas of expertise. Show prospective clients what work you have completed in the past, how you achieved goals for previous employers and how you added value to the job. Rest assured employers will be falling off their chair, scrambling to secure your services for their next job.

    V. Other helpful tips to make your profile unbeatable

    Be original. There are so many clones on the internet these days. Make sure your profile reflects the best version of your skills and yourself.

    Verify your details. People want to know they are working with real people and not robots. Having your details verified helps you build up your trust and reputation.
