Tips For Keeping a Successful Pilot Profile

Key Words

In regards to considering the ‘Google-ability’ factor, it is important to boost SEO by including keywords in your profile. When thinking about keywords, you need to consider the following: 

  1. Finding your competitors’ keywords

  2. Finding keywords using a seed keyword

  3. Finding keywords you already rank for

You probably already know some of your competitors in the industry, so it’s worth doing some research to find out what their profiles look like. Use this information to shape your profile and then improve it. Many professionals tend not to update their profiles often; once they’ve created it, they assume it’s the best it can be. However, it’s important to continually enhance your profile by adapting, editing, and updating it regularly.

A seed keyword is any keyword you enter into a keyword research tool, such as ICT Keyword Generator, to find other relevant keywords.

As an example on your profile, your seed keyword might be any broad keyword related to your niche, such as “surveying,” “aerial surveying,” or “drone surveying.” The tool will then list keywords related to your seed keyword.

You can repeat this process with various seed keywords. This will give you a great overview of your niche and the most important topics.

Check All Links Are Working

There’s nothing more unprofessional than having links on your profile that fail. It’s important to ensure all links are functional to improve clicks, increase traffic to your page, and enhance the reputability of your profile.


Ask clients to leave a review directly on your Drone Safe Register profile - this helps to drive new business opportunities and gain the trust of future clients. 

Keep Track Of Career Changes

It's vital to clearly note any career changes on your profile, to avoid any awkwardness and confusion. For example, if you have transitioned from photogrammetry to roof surveys, make sure this is indicated on your profile.

Revisit Your Spelling, Grammar, and Punctuation

Double-checking your spelling, grammar, and punctuation is crucial to avoid making your profile look sloppy. It’s a small detail that makes a significant difference when done correctly.

Clients may be deterred by a page that is poorly written and may look elsewhere. Attention to detail and effort set pilots apart in the drone industry.

Overall, keeping your profile up-to-date is essential for maintaining a successful and reputable career as a drone pilot.
