Just to let you know I’m not an affiliate for Canva but it’s the website I use most everyday and I ABSOLUTELY love it!
Reason Number 1
The free version is great! I do have the paid for version but unless you are creating loads of images or want to resize quickly, the free version is good. In the paid version you can access more free stock photos (but if you want some ideas read this blog here)
Reason Number 2
I sat and counted all the things you can create in Canva (sad, I know!) but there are at least 32 that I use consistently in my business. Apart from the obvious social media posts and banners, I designed my new roller banner, my ebooks, flyers, checklists and so much more!
Reason number 3
You don’t need to be a designer to create professional looking marketing collateral. So it saves you money!
Reason Number 4
It’s really easy to use! Once you’ve chosen the layout and template you’d like, then you can customise it. Everything is drag and drop, and text can be edited much like text boxes in any other graphic design software.
Reason Number 5
You can share your images directly to your social media accounts – saving time and less faffing with downloading, uploading etc!
Reason Number 6
It saves me so much time, by creating templates I can just drop the updated text into my design and hey, presto! No waiting around!
Reason Number 7
The templates are the right size for so many different things such as Twitter headers, Facebook Events, Linkedin posts, Instagram stories etc. So I’m confident that when I upload it it’ll look good and there won’t be bits missing! Less faffing to get designs resized….
Reason Number 8
Last but not least, it’s fun! I could spend my whole week in Canva! I really enjoy using it and the results I get, so my brand is consistently looking good, without breaking the budget!
If this is of interest, I’d love you to join me on the next ‘Boost your Business with Beautiful Visuals‘ where we will play with Canva and you’ll leave having creating your first awesome project!
