I discovered an amazing online program last week that I think every artist needs to use to upgrade their images on social media. It's called Canva. (And yes, there is no "s".) For most artists, ramping up your next social media campaign by adding beautifully designed graphics is a must-do.
Canva has a library of professionally designed layouts for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and more. The layouts are all set up with the right dimensions to create badges for social media. And the best part is you can create these social media campaigns for free. If you’re an artist just starting out or an existing one looking to improve your social media strategy – good visual content will help establish your online identity.
Between Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+, almost three billion people are active social media users. So how can you leverage them to your business? The answer is simple – by creating interesting and engaging social media graphics.
Canva’s social media layouts can be used on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram. Get free acesss to over 100 layouts, allowing you to create stunning graphics in just minutes! The program is free unless you choose to use one of their pay-to-use graphic images (with a cost of $1.00). Many images are free.
The four graphics pictured above were created using a template for a Facebook profile photo. Just selet which template you want (such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.) and have fun!
Tomorrow I will make suggestions as to what kinds of social media campaings you can create to use these great graphics.
