How to create a beautiful social media template in Canva

Well!! I must say I didn’t plan to be away from my blog this long; I’ve been incredibly busy with clients (yay!), having holidays at the beach (yay!), planning out my business for this year (just you wait 😉 ), and then getting the kids organised to get back into school (phew!). So thanks y’all for sticking with me. I PROMISE I’ll be back to blogging on a regular basis, with lots of great tips for small business, and with particular emphasis on building your brand beautifully, of course.

This year, I’ve got tons of stuff lined up; I’ll be digging into branding, design principles, marketing, and more, and looking at quite specific things such as website layout, customer touchpoints, social media, packaging, and your workspace. Look out 2017!

 

Right now, I’ve got something a bit spesh for you; I’ll be doing a series of tutorials on how to make some really gorgeous things in Canva, that you can easily adapt to your own business.

Canva’s great and I love it for all sorts of reasons, but I hear lots of people getting frustrated with it – on the tech side, not being able to figure out how to do something in particular (yes, it does have limitations, but there’s always ways around everything), and also on the design side, when their graphics end up looking messy and confused and nothing like they imagined. I go into a bit of both and show you how to consistently get good results in this series of tutorials I’m publishing throughout the month, because the tech and the design work hand in hand to produce beautiful things.

Here’s the first. Enjoy.

 

 

How easy was that!?

I hope it also sparked your imagination and you realised just how much you can actually do in Canva with a little practice. It’s great for social media posts, creating ebooks, blog images, posters, invitations, and a whole heap of other things too.

If you’re interested in learning more, I’ve got a free 5-day challenge happening very soon – it starts on Monday 13th Feb. I’ll go through my best hacks and tips, and you’ll get access to a private Facebook group where you can share your wins and frustrations, get feedback on what you’ve made, and ask as many questions as you like.

This’ll be the second time I’ve run the free challenge; and when I posted this offer to the folk who went through the first time, their responses were “Yes! When does it start?”, “This was so good!”, “I’m in. Thanks!”, and “I’m in, too! I learned so much the first time around!”. How’s that for enthusiasm!?!

Jump on in – starts next Monday, 13th Feb – and did I mention it’s free? http://bit.ly/ConquerCanva2.

See you there!
