How Activity Rocket is adopting Visme to support their cause. (Case Study)


Today we’re interviewing Helen Kruskamp from Activity Rocket. Headquartered in the Mid-Atlantic area of United States; it's a one-stop shop for parents to connect and locate various activities for their children.

Helen is a Data Manager at Activity Rocket and was referred to Visme by a colleague who heard about it from a recent even I was Presenting at.

Helen was on the same boat until she gave Visme a shot and she has since adopted it as a great alternative to tools such as Powerpoint or Adobe illustrator.

She has also taken advantage of our Premium plan and is now a regular user of Visme.  We love organizations that seek to make a difference in our daily lives and I believe Activity Rocket is one of them at least when it comes to helping parent be more efficient and have a better means of supporting their family and children's activities.

Here’s a bit more insight into her company and how she’s putting Visme to work:

What exactly is Activity Rocket?


Activity Rocket is a one-stop shop where parents can find and book classes, camps, sports and other enrichment activities for their kids in a matter of minutes.

It’s like an Open Table for kids activities and camps - allowing parents to search, find, book, share, and review programs all in one place.

Activity Rocket also offers a complete package of marketing, branding, and registration tools to busy small business owners so that they can focus on what really matters - great programs for kids.


What inspired you to work at the Organization?

Everyday I come to work enthusiastic about joining our wonderful activity and camp providers with the thousands of busy parents looking for quality programs for their children.

It is an exciting, fast-paced business and I love knowing that the work I do not only helps kids gain enrichment, but helps small business owners cut down on the tedious, expensive, and time consuming tasks of running a small business, so that they can focus their energy on their individual passions.

From prenatal yoga to college entrance exam preparation and everything in between - our providers do it all.

I am also inspired by the dedication and vision of Activity Rocket’s founders, Lisa and Ilene, and my colleagues who have teamed up to make this a highly functioning reality.

What distinguishes you from others?

Activity Rocket is a first of it’s kind search engine. We can basically book a trip to Europe in 20 minutes on Expedia, book a 5 star dinner reservation in 5 minutes on OpenTable, and even rent an apartment through Trulia.

Ask yourself: Why should parents have to spend hours and hours searching individual websites and filling out duplicate forms to register their kids for enrichment programs?

Activity Rocket makes those hassles a thing of the past, saving parents time and money in the process. 

How did you hear about Visme and Why did you decide on using Visme for your web presence needs over other tools?

I was introduced to Visme through Ilene, one of Activity Rocket’s co-founders.

To my knowledge there is no other program out there that allows a person without a graphic design education to create professional looking infographics, presentations, and advertisements in just minutes all within one tool.

I remember when I was first introduced to PowerPoint and I thought it was amazing (and it was) - Visme is the next generation. It’s seamless, professional, and beautiful.

Tell us a little bit about what you have created with Visme.

My two favorite Visme projects so far are my infographic on 5 Tips for Great Website  and a holiday ad encouraging giving experiences rather than stuff this holiday season.

One of the main parts of my work with Activity Rocket is to ensure that our website is up to date with the activities and camps of over 600 providers.

So I look at LOTS of website regularly and have seen the very best and the very worst. I created the 5 Tips infographic to try to share some of my learning with our partners.

What feature/functions do you like most about Visme?

I love that Visme has so many great templates to get you started.

It can be tough to create great projects from scratch, but the templates allow a jumping board and the fact that all the features can be customized (even down to web color values for an exact match to the Activity Rocket website) allow for customization, creativity, and consistency with pre-existing branding.


Would you recommend Visme to others? If so, Why would you recommend them to use it?

Absolutely! I would recommend Visme to anyone and everyone. It’s very easy to use the very first time; just give it 10-15 minutes.

The possibilities are endless. You can get as involved or not as you choose with any project and still come up with something great.

What feature/functions do you feel are missing or would you like to see improved in the system?

I can’t think of anything off the top of my head. I’ll be sure to chime in in the future as I use Visme more and more.



We’re stingy and don’t share emails with anyone.
