  1. Hi David,

    I’m part of the Visme team and I came across this page on

    I wanted to let you know that we are about to launch a major upgrade of Visme early this year and we would very much like to see if you are up for reviewing it? Certainly we want you to only mention it if you believe in the product and I can get you a complementary Premium account so you can access all features.

    A little about VIsme:
    Visme is a simple, drag-and-drop, presentation and data visualization software that’s completely online and free to use. Individuals, businesses and educators with little to no design knowledge seem to love it as we have over 300,000 active users utilizing it to communicate better in form of interactive Presentations, Infographics and forms of digital content.

    See it in action here:

    Please let me know if I can answer any of your questions and like to learn more as well as the complimentary premium account. Look forward to hearing back.

    Kind regards,
