If you want to stand out from the crowd on social media, you must have the ability to create amazing designs, fast and easy. Since we like fast and easy, there is only one graphic design DIY tool I recommend: Canva.com (or Canva Design App).
What is Canva?
Canva is a tool that makes it possible to design anything and publish anywhere. With its user-friendly drag and drop tool and thousands of customizable templates, over 400 million designs from more than 10 million users across 179 countries have been created with Canva so far.
Canva is available in 100 languages and can be accessed in desktop browsers and mobile apps. This makes Canva accessible to practically everyone with Internet connection.
What can you do with Canva?
With Canva, you can easily create beautiful documents & designs for any occasion and purpose. From social media posts to presentations, you can browse more than 65,000 editable templates or you can start from scratch if you’re feeling adventurous.
Canva also makes it easy for you to access millions of stock images, illustrations, icons and fonts inside the app.
I’ve used Canva and recommended to my clients for many years now.
How Can You Use Canva For Work And Life?
As a mompreneur and busy CEO, anything that can help me simplify my life and business is welcomed.
Are you ready to discover one of my secrets to earn more doing less? Here you go!
Free DIY Planners
A daily planner brings you joy! When you see all your items lined up, your brain automatically can process the “big picture” scenario. Experts recommend a planner to lower stress levels and increase productivity.
This is important for your personal and professional life. While many people think of productivity as it relates to their job, you also want to be productive at home. This might include getting cleaning and home organization done, or working on projects you keep putting it off. Regardless of what it is, planners help you to stay on track with each individual task you need to complete, and encourages you to move on to the next one effectively and efficiently.
With Canva, you can customize your daily, weekly, and monthly planners, for free.
If you’re into Paleo Diet, for example, you can use Canva.com and design your meals. Planning is the key to success when it comes to achieving a weight loss goal or fitness goal.
Canva For Social Media Marketing
As a busy entrepreneur, you need your marketing efforts to result in more sales, which is why using visual content in social media is a simple method to attract, engage, and acquire leads and customers.
Sure, everyone is talking about how important visual content is in your strategy. But did you know that including images in your posts make your content (and your business) more:
4) Memorable, and,
Content with relevant images gets 94% more views than content without relevant images. Canva has amazing design tools and creative templates that will make your life really easy.
Canva Makes Instagram Marketing For Realtors Easy
Whether you believe it or not, the majority of the real estate market has moved online. What used to be an industry that depended on cold calling and traditional marketing, has now moved to an industry that relies heavily on social media marketing.
If you’re a realtor, you understand how big of an impact social media has on building trust in your former and future client base. Social media is a major lead generator for real estate businesses, yet most real estate brands fail to maximize their efficiency online.
Instagram for real estate agents is totally different from Facebook or Twitter — The engagement is ten times higher than Facebook and the demographic is much more affluent. So there’s no wonder why all of the top producing agents are using Instagram to promote their real estate business. Getting the hang of Instagram can take some practice, but we’re here to lower the learning curve, and help you see the light!
Canva can help you customize an Instagram story and make you look like a pro. They have plenty of styles to choose: modern templates, minimalist, with graphics or high-resolution images, etc. If you have your 10,000 followers, you then can add a custom link and generate leads.
Check Instagram stories templates in Canva and get ready to feel great! They also have traditional Instagram templates.
Canva For Business Presentations (Including Job Seekers)
While there’s no exact figure, an estimated 30 million presentations are being done worldwide with another 500 million users behind them. With or without these estimates, it can’t be denied that a considerable number of people still use a presentation aid, either for reporting or selling their products.
If you are still using Power Point, I recommend you Canva. Their presentation templates are stylish, professional, and modern. I really like how easy it is to create one. I have probably designed over 100 presentations at this point and still counting!
Canva is also great to create a simple resume. Sometimes we don’t have all the time in the world, so it is good to know about this tool.
