Navigating the New Normal
Dec 28, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for businesses to reach customers and employees using traditional methods. Because so many are working remotely, fulfillment orders are now being shipped separately to many people individually instead of entire orders being shipped to a single location for distribution. Businesses across the globe have swiftly and efficiently adjusted to this “new normal”.
The New Normal of Working From Home
With many employees working remotely due to the coronavirus, our team at Marked Promotions has swiftly pivoted to reaching customers and employees directly. By providing a wide range of shipping options, businesses are able to successfully reach their customers during the pandemic. In addition to multiple methods of freight, we have expanded our portfolio to include promotional goods that make working from home more comfortable and productive for your employees.
An Opportunity for Virtual Conferences
Virtual conferences such as trade shows, meetings, commencement ceremonies, and award presentations are being held virtually. Although these events and meetings aren’t happening in person, customers still love to receive the promotional items they’d normally pick up at an event. An effective way to reach customers and prospects is to send a promotional item to each attendee individually prior to the virtual event. Just because you can’t meet in person, doesn’t mean you can’t use unique ways to impress and make an impression upon potential clients. A simple gift can go a long way and help keep your brand top of mind.
Other Unique Opportunities to Send Swag Directly
- Virtual learning: with more kids learning from home, this is a great opportunity to put a smile on someone’s face and share some fun swag.
- Nonprofits / donor outreach: The new normal for donor appreciation events are now virtual. While you may have normally given gifts at in-person events, the new digital landscape makes this tricky. Why not send them an appreciation gift directly to their home?
Some Virtual Ceremony & Event Promo Ideas:
- Attendee registration packs
- VIP speaker swag bags
- Appreciation gifts
- Promotional drinkware
- Custom tote bags
- Promotional USB drives and power banks
- Company branded hand sanitizer
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is crucial to minimize hazards and risk from infectious diseases like COVID-19. When PPE is utilized properly, you can help protect others and yourself from potential hazards. The FDA recommends using masks with other infection control practices such as using alcohol-based sanitizers, and hand washing. Even with the new vaccine, experts predict that PPE will still be needed for at least the next six months.
PPE is here for the foreseeable future and the following equipment is crucial to limiting the spread of COVID-19 as we continue to navigate and live with the new normal the pandemic has brought us. If you’re looking to customize items like masks and sanitizer, we’ve got you covered. Give us a call today 866-792-4724 and we’ll get custom swag and PPE sent directly to your customers and employees.
