6 Giveaways for Back-to-School Marketing During the COVID Era

COVID-19 has challenged us for the greater part of 2020 and 2021, forcing cities to come to a standstill and closing borders to contain the spread of the virus.

Last year, school and university students had to embrace a new way of life when they were forced to seek alternatives to in-person learning.

It’s July 2021 and though things seem to be looking better, the shadow of COVID-19 still lurks among us. As Back-to-School beckons, several states are implementing an array of measures to kick-start the new school year.

In-person classes are expected to begin if school districts are satisfied that new cases, COVID-19 hospitalizations, and diagnostic test percent positivity are under control. Students returning to classes can expect one of the following:

  • Classrooms rearranged to maintain social distancing
  • An outdoor learning environment or
  • Online or remote learning

Every year, businesses and schools approach us for some exciting back-to-school promotional products. We invite you to boost your brand presence by investing in some quality giveaways.
