Hi everyone.

It’s Angie. And I wanted to go over a website today that I was using the other day for a client. And I thought you know what? This is something that is extremely important and could save so much time for you as a small business owner. So let’s go to it. It’s called canva.com.

What I use this for is actually, I use it for numerous things. But what I really want to show you is the social media aspect of it. I typically create all my social media posts, my covers, my Facebook cover my YouTube, cover, Instagram, whatever, you know LinkedIn cover, whatever you need to make. I usually make it in this program. And you know, over 23 years of doing this for other businesses, I can tell you that this is one of the easiest ones to use. And if this tells you anything, I’m the designer and my husband Pat is not. So when I know he’s doing anything on his own and designing something and not me, he turns to Canva. So if he does that, then I can assure you, it’s something that you can figure out too. And you can use it when you open it up and you get the free account, which is all you really need is a free account. I personally would suggest the paid account because it opens up so many more things that you can use, but that’s totally up to you. You don’t have to.

Here you see it’s separated into categories, which makes it nice and easy. And then they have this nice little slider that allows you to go through different categories as well. Facebook ads are a big one that you’ll be using. You’re going to want to post on your page. I know a ton of you that are in the group already have asked about social media or you’ve downloaded our social media guide and want to know what the first thing is to do. A lot of people wonder you know, what do I post? How do I create something cool to post on my page?

Canva helps. So if we click on a Facebook ad, (I’m not going to show you how to do it.) I’m just showing you right now that they have examples, which is great to start with. I even do this. If I see one of the designs that I think, you know, inspires me and will work for one of my clients, I’ll use it. It just helps to have something to start with. So then you would just click on one that you would like, and then you can start creating. You can add different images, icons, wording, and more!

There are all kinds of things here on the side that you can go through. I’m not going to go through all that in this video. I want you to go through it, take a look at it.

So if you want to save time, I would definitely go to canva.com. Again, it’s one of the best ones that are out there. The easiest to use. User-friendly and I think it can help you. So if you had used it before, let me know, say that in the comments, if you haven’t used it yet, get in there and do something and share it, share it on your Facebook page, and then share it with me because I would like to see it. I would like to see what you’ve done and what you’ve created. So hopefully this will help you this week. I’d love to see you use it.
