Coronavirus face protection absolutely dominated the promo industry last year. With the pandemic still running rampant across the world as we enter 2021, it's safe to say that this trend will probably continue for the foreseeable future.
But which personal protective equipment (PPE) promo should you sell? This can be a tough question to answer. After all, face masks and neck gaiters are not interchangeable; each offers unique benefits that address different needs. If this overwhelms you, no need to worry. Let's review the unique selling points of face masks and neck gaiters right now.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused face masks to become the top promo around the world in 2020. This accessory is likely the first thing you think about when you hear the words "face protection," and for good reason — not only are face masks simple to use, but they keep mouths and noses snugly covered without too much discomfort or obstruction. For this reason, face masks were widely adopted to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Face masks make a great pitch to virtually all audiences. When selling this product, focus on their wide adoption and affordability. You should also emphasize the versatility and ease of use that face masks provide. These factors make them perfect for a variety of situations, sectors, and demographics.
Here are a few example environments that face masks are great for:
- Offices: Companies of all sizes and industries
- Education: K-12 schools and colleges
- Healthcare: Hospitals, urgent care centers, and clinics
- Retail: Shopping malls as well as brick-and-mortar stores
Are your clients looking for the greatest protection possible? Then neck gaiters are the face protection promo that you should present! These tough tubes of fabric were already widely used in industries such as construction and agriculture. The pandemic has spurred them to also become everyday face protection options for users who desire the most coverage available.
To put on a neck gaiter, you simply pull it over your face. When selling this product, emphasize how it provides ample comfort during extended wear. This is an amazing advantage for jobs with long shifts. Besides this, the complete coverage that neck gaiters offer does an incredible job of protecting wearers from the elements, making them ideal for any hands-on occupations. And you can easily enhance your COVID-19 protection by folding your neck gaiter to make it two-ply.
Here are a few examples that neck gaiters are great for:
- Contractors: Electricians, plumbers, and carpenters
- Automotive: Mechanic shops, dealerships, collision centers
- Construction: Building, demolition, roadwork
- Warehouse: Inventory and shipment
