It all started when two years ago... like other parents, we were pulling our hair out trying to find the best enrichment activities for our children. We valued the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth our kids experienced exploring new interests, but we were spending too much time searching the web to find the best soccer, drama, piano, and computer classes at the right price, time and location. Hours were wasted combing through each activity providers' website to compare class schedules, location, and price. And all too often we would find the perfect activity only to find out our son or daughter's best friend was signed up for a different class - if only we had known! And we were not alone! Frustration with the inefficiencies of the activity planning process was widespread and repeated 4-5 times a year - each time the activity cycle renewed.
Meanwhile, activity and camp providers were constantly searching for new ways to attract kids to their classes - with classes frequently going unfilled. Advertisements in monthly print magazines or online directories were costly and not targeting the families looking for their specific activity. Reliance on coupon marketing through third party marketers was eating up significant income. Providers complained they were throwing scarce marketing dollars away and not getting good information to inform their business decisions.
Activity Rocket set out to solve these problems. Whether you are a parent looking for information about a specific children's activity or enrichment camp, want to comparison shop across activities and camps, require robust and intuitive activity and camp planning tools, or just want to connect with other parents to share and collaborate, Activity Rocket is the solution. For activity and camp providers, registrations explode when business owners market themselves directly to registration ready parents looking for their specific activities and camps.
