Canva is an free, online web tool that allows you to create visuals and easily tap into your creativity side.
As a Virtual Assistant (VA) this tool comes in handy in so many ways for both my blog and my business.
1. Canva saves you money.
Canva is a free web tool, yep, completely free. You, yes, YOU can create professional visuals online. You don’t have to hire someone to create an idea that you had in mind. You don’t have to download a program, and have it take up space on your computer.
2. Canva saves you time.
Yes Photoshop is amazing and you can do so many things with it, but let’s be honest, the features are always changing, it takes forever to use and you drown yourself in the amount of tools and options. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have all of the time in the world when a client asks for a social media graphic or I want to replace a blog picture here in under 10 minutes. With Canva, you will have professional, crisp and clean visuals within minutes. (Note: All of my visuals on this blog were created with Canva.)
PHOTOSHOP IS GREAT, IF YOU HAVE ALL OF THE TIME IN THE WORLD. WITH CANVA I CAN CREATE VISUALS IN A FRACTION OF THE TIME! TWEET THAT!
3. Canva will make you feel like an graphic design artist.
Once you hit the download button on your design, you will be feeling like an graphic design artist in no time! With the never-ending templates and drag-and-drop user-interface, Canva makes the whole design process easy.
BONUS: Your clients, readers, students, and etc. will never know that you don’t have a graphic design degree!
