Every Electric Yoga Experience (E|Y|E) event can be completely customized for your school. In the planning of each event, we approach the process with a budget conscious mindset. Some events are built for a large stage and require a number of components while others are for a smaller group. But regardless of the venue, our team is always dedicated to bringing your school an experience meant to leave a lasting impression.
1. Making contact. It all starts with a phone call, email, tweet or Facebook message. Once you contact our team, we will set up a teleconference to go over the logistics of the event and assess your wants and needs. We want to get your entire wish list on the table. This will give our team an idea of what type of event you are looking to provide to your student body.
2. Providing feedback. No one knows your campus and student body better than you and your student leaders. So you and your team’s opinion is very important to the planning process of your event. The feedback that we provide is meant to give our opinion of what we think would work best, as well as examples of what add-ons we can provide to bring your experience to the next level. For example, your organization can offer advertising space on one or more advertising set pieces to local vendors. This allows your organization to use those sponsorships dollars to boost your budget and make your campus' E|Y|E bigger and better. Other suggestions can also include give-a-way options, marketing strategies, and much more.
3. Getting the word out. For a number of our team members, this next step is the best part. Our marketing team will work with your organization to provide promotional material to advertise your E|Y|E event on campus. Marketing material can include flyers, promo cards, teaser videos, online social graphics and promotional swag. We want to make sure your E|Y|E event is the only thing people can talk about up until and after it happens.
4. Making it happen. All the planning and marketing has led up to the day of the event. Even with the planning completed, there is much more to do, and we want to involve your student body by having them working side by side with our team to help set up staging, lighting and any tasks that are going to assure everything kicks off right. Student involvement can also branch into many other opportunities. For example, if the video or photography majors want to participate and offer their skills to capture the night’s moments, we welcome them. The overall goal is to bring the best experience possible. In some cases, volunteers are not available and that's ok to. The degree of your involvement is completely up to you. We want to involve your team because once the event is under way, we want your team to be able to say, “not only did we bring this event to campus, we helped make it happen!” This is also a prime opportunity to get real world experience and show what your organization is capable of accomplishing.
Our favorite stories are those of students who show videos of an Electric Yoga Experience they held on their campus to new students and provide a story of how they were able to bring it to their school and participate in more ways than one.
5. Remembering the night. When the E|Y|E event is over, our work is far from done. We have photos to edit, video to slice, and social marketing to do. Each event that we do has a team of professional photographers and videographers. Trust us; if you’re going to bring an event like the Electric Yoga Experience on your campus, you’re going to want to show everyone! It’s going to be LEGENDARY!
