As a part of my job, I use social media to reach out to my clients. I also know that visuals work best to get attention. If you can use pictures with your message, it will be remembered better and catch readers' attention. But with great design comes a lot of work. I don't have time to spend hours creating just the right image and text. This is where Canva.com comes in.
Canva provides you with a simple new way to design. Its drag and drop functionality enables you to create presentations, posters, one-page documents, and social media posts. You can use many of the free stock photos or pay just $1 for others. I found that I can easily drag and drop my own photos into the layout and use the free text tools to make it look professional. If you need some inspiration, check out my profile page at https://www.canva.com/ranellem. These are the images I've made public, but I do have several others I've kept private, like my Facebook cover images.
You can easily share your images via Facebook or Twitter from within Canva. I like to download the image first and then share. I can then use the image in multiple places, like here.
Just imagine the possibilities! Market training events, post reminders of what was taught in training, share some inspiration. I've already spent more time here than I should, but I've had so much fun and it's so easy to learn. What are you waiting for? Start creating!
