You want to stand out online in order to sell more Young Living® products and build a team of rockstar social sellers, right? Having beautiful graphic design definitely helps, but not everyone has the budget for a professional designer. Thankfully, Canva is an amazing (and free) solution for you.
The graphic design platform Canva can truly save the day and make it easy to DIY your own branded content and come across like an experienced pro. Canva is a great tool for creating professional-looking graphics, and with a little bit of creativity and know-how, you can create eye-catching designs that will help you stand out as a Brand Partner. Here are our top Canva tips:
First and foremost, make sure you're using the right dimensions for your designs.
Different social media platforms have different recommended sizes for images and graphics, so it's important to use the right dimensions to make sure your designs look their best. Canva has a variety of pre-set dimensions you can choose from, including square, landscape, and portrait. You can also specify where you’ll be using it - social media, email, blog, etc. - and it will provide the right dimensions for that platform.
Next, take advantage of Canva's templates.
These templates are designed by professional graphic designers, and they're a great starting point for creating your own designs. You can easily edit the text, colors, and images to fit your brand and message and aesthetic. And again, Canva has a wide variety of templates for different types of content, such as Instagram stories, Facebook posts, and presentations, so you know that when you hit “publish” on those platforms, it will look the way you want it to look and not get cut off in weird places or stretched out funny. (We’ve all been there, right? It’s so frustrating!)
Third, make use of Canva's design elements.
The platform also offers a really nice selection of design elements, including frames, graphics, and shapes that you can use to enhance your designs. These elements can help you create a cohesive look and feel for your brand, and they're a great way to add visual interest to your designs.
Fourth, use Canva's color palette tool.
This tool allows you to create a color palette based on a specific image or color. This is an easy way to ensure that your designs have a consistent color scheme, and it can help you create a cohesive look and feel for your brand. You can even save it in a brand folder so it’s easy to create designs using your exact brand colors which helps for brand recognition.
Fifth, use Canva's font library.
You can find tons of fun and creative fonts in Canva, along with the classics, and you can use the font library to find the perfect font for your designs. This is an easy way to add a professional touch to your designs, and it can help you create a cohesive look and feel for your brand. And while it’s fun to let your creativity shine with fonts, just keep in mind that readability is your top priority so choose fonts that are pretty but also easy for someone to read as they quickly scroll through your content.
Sixth, use Canva's animation feature.
Canva allows you to animate your designs, which can help make them more engaging and eye-catching. This feature is particularly useful for social media, where you want to grab people's attention quickly.
Now you’re ready to start designing!
