How To Create Amazing Graphics In Canva

You should never judge a book by its cover…. But we all do.

And the same goes for your blog posts. When you’re promoting your post on Pinterest (which you definitely should be) and Facebook, it’s the well crafted, eye catching images that gain the most attention.

And the best thing is you don’t need to have a degree in design to create amazing graphics yourself.

Want to know how it’s done? Here’s my tutorial on how to create amazing graphics in Canva.

Beautiful graphics are so important to have, especially on the visual platforms like Pinterest and Instagram. It’s even been shown that tweets with graphics gain more clicks and retweets than ones without. There’s some serious power in beautiful graphics.

In addition to being visually appealing, having a beautiful graphic in your blog post with a simple ‘pin it’ button encourages the sharing of your post on Pinterest. Winning right?? (If you want to see an example check out the image at the end of this post… and remember to pin it!!).

The visual representation of your business and blog is a big deal, it needs to be appealing. Here's a tutorial on how to create amazing graphics using Canva. You can use these graphics for pinnable images, Pinterest Marketing, Facebook Marketing, Instagram Posts or any type of social media marketing.

You can also use a program called Canva For Work which helps with branding across all of the social platforms as well as for stationary and other business needs. This is a paid upgrade, however I think it is only around $10 per month. Plus, they offer a free 30 day trial to give it a go! (Not an affiliate, just love their concepts!)

I would love so much to see the graphics you’ve created so be sure to leave a comment with a link in the comments below to show me what you’ve done!!

I love canva. I discovered it early this year and I think it's been my favorite app so far. Now I don't have to pay a designer to get my posters and flyers made.
