United Way of Baroda Goes Global


United Way of Baroda is an NGO and its annual fund-raising event, United Way Garba Mahotsav or Uway is a beloved Intellectual Brand Property in Baroda. All Barodians and Gujaratis in the country and NRGs eagerly wait for this event every year like a true fan. This religious celebration of 9 days has been happening for more than 25 years, where at the centre stage is Shri Atul Purohit (known as King of Garba). Atul Kaka is a truly admired artist across the globe with a great fan following on the internet.

Associated with the festival of Navratri for more than two decades, United Way Baroda has evolved so much and has earned genuine fans from around the world. This NGO that supports the healthcare and lifestyle needs of the underprivileged and organizes the ‘United Way Garba Mahotsav’ was looking to create and sustain a strong digital presence and this is the story of how we did it.

1. Social Media Management / Live Event Marketing and Promotions


Trizone India was responsible for managing the social media profiles and their marketing. A team of creatives worked closely to create and share beautiful and engaging content and ran a contest during the festival every year. A team of experienced content creators including video producers, photographers, journalists were deployed on-ground to gather and cover the event live which was promoted from Ground 0. Real-time pictures, videos, and Boomerangs were posted on social media to achieve maximum engagement and reach. Short video clips of celebrity attendees were also posted to get the engagement of the audience. Every day around 40000 players play the Garba on Ground, all of whom are highly active on social media and have a craze of uploading selfies around the festival season.

Noticing this, we promoted the ‘#’ to increase our reach and views, and hand an on-ground activation model with 2 LED screens, which were utilized to engage the audience with selfie contests, information flashes, event updates, etc.

2. Live Event Broadcasting


Our digital streaming wing and video editing team worked together to make sure that all 10 days of Garba were streamed on our Youtube and Facebook Profile everyday with uninterrupted broadcasting services. The Marketing team at Trizone India, created a sponsor valuation over its online broadcasting feed, owing to our million viewership base on the respective platforms which has over 10 million + Views.
