When working with small businesses and also with being a small business, creating images for social media can be time consuming if you don’t have a graphic design expert on staff. Then I found out about a tool called Canva, that had no monthly fees, you could try it out for free and unless you used a premium feature or image it was free to create your images.
I don’t have a design background and when I checked out Canva it was very easy to create an image. They even have templates with all the image sizes for social media posts and cover images. If you are in need of good graphics and don’t have a graphic design artist on hand, Canva is your answer!
In social media imagery is becoming more and more important, a great image can grab peoples’ attention much faster than just a text update. An interesting fact is that visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text! 60,000 times faster, that’s a huge difference when people are scrolling through their Facebook or Twitter feeds. With Canva you can now have that advantage even if you don’t have a team of designers.
If you are worried that this tool will take too much time that you just don’t have. You are in luck Canva is so easy to use you won’t need to spend much time to create images to enhance your social media presence.
This tool will allow you to create images quickly and easily and if you are on a tight budget you can use Canva and not pay anything. That’s right, with the free version there are lots of stock images you can use, icons, frames and you can also import your own images. The premium features and images start at $1!
If you are looking for an affordable easy to use tool that will help you gain your audiences’ attention or you need updated graphics for your social cover images join the 2.3 million users already on Canva and give it a try.
While you are checking out Canva make sure you sign up for their coming soon tool Canva for Work. I haven’t see this tool yet, but they have a waiting list for those that want to be one of the first to try out.
In case you are thinking I was paid to write this, I am in no way affiliated with Canva, nor was I paid to write this. I am writing this because Canva is an affordable graphic tool that can improve a social media presence by adding more visual elements.
