The pandemic has raged on for way longer than any of us expected. The CDC is still recommending masks as one of the best ways to protect yourself from the virus.
While no one is happy that the coronavirus continues to thrive despite countless efforts to find a solution, business owners can find bright spots by providing masks as a way to market their business. Read on to find out why they are an effective branding tool.
Why Masks are Terrific for Branding
Like it or not, everyone needs a mask. In fact, people need several masks.
Health experts recommend washing masks after every use, so people always need a clean one. And with many people being forgetful, it’s a good idea to have one at work, in the car, in your purse and so on.
The fact that masks have become a necessity make them a great marketing tool.
Furthermore, masks are worn on the face where they are visible to everyone. If you put your company logo on a mask, it’s sure to get noticed when it’s worn.
How to Use Masks as a Marketing Tool
Companies can use masks as a marketing tool by giving them to employees and customers.
When your employees wear a mask while working it:
- Provides a cohesive look
- Enforces the company brand to shoppers and clients
- Keeps workers and customers safe
You can also provide them to customers who may show up to do business and may have forgotten a mask. They may continue using the mask reminding them of your brand and marketing your brand to anyone that sees them.
You can also sell them to customers to generate extra revenue.
Manufacturing Tips for Face Masks
It’s a great idea to make masks with a company logo, but they will only be effective if they get worn. Here are some tips that will ensure your mask will be a favorite for everyone that gets one.
Get High Quality Masks: If your mask is flimsy, it’s not likely to get worn. A thicker mask will look better and provide more protection. Go for one that features a triple layer for best results.
Come Up with an Attractive Design: Your goal in getting masks made is to promote your brand. But that doesn’t mean your mask should necessarily have your logo stamped across it. Think of how to integrate it into an attractive design by adding fantastic colors and other attractive elements.
Make it in a Variety of Sizes: No one is going to wear a mask that doesn’t fit. To ensure yours gets worn, make it in a variety of sizes or provide adjustable features for a one size fits all effect.
It’s unfortunate that the pandemic continues to plague us, but masks are a good way to combat the virus. Let your employees and customers know you care by providing masks that feature your company logo. They will work to promote your business and decrease the spread of the virus.
