Canva is a graphic design platform that offers both Canva (free of charge) and Canva pro (different levels of subscriptions) for business owners and personal use. If you’re not already using Canva, here are a few reasons why you and your business are missing out! Sign up for Canva’s FREE trial or elevate to Canva Pro here.
1. Great for Beginners & Small Businesses
Even if you don’t have any design experience, you’ll still be able to quickly learn how to use Canva, as it’s very user-friendly. It has many features that make your design process a breeze.
In my opinion, the best part about Canva is the endless amount of templates available for you to use. You can find templates designed for the right dimensions of each social media platform, from YouTube to Pinterest, letting you create graphics as fast and stress free as possible. Outside of social media templates, there are templates for just about anything else you and your business may need- resumes, business cards, logos, and so much more!
In addition to templates, Canva also offers a wide variety of stock photos and other design elements, which gives you the option to create content for your business without having any of your own, original graphics.
2. Option to Design “Brand Kits” with Canva Pro
While you need Canva pro to access this feature, I have definitely found it to be essential for my business! These personalized ‘brand kits’ include having your brand’s logo, color palette, and fonts conveniently saved in one place. You can also invite team members to join, so everyone has easy accessibility to these brand elements, leading to greater brand consistency.
3. Canva Has a Mobile App
I love using the Canva app when I’m on the go and don’t have the time to pull out my laptop and work. The app is just as easy to navigate as the desktop version! Also, I prefer using the app over the desktop when I want to see how my designs will look for mobile users, specifically for when I’m designing Instagram stories or Pinterest pins.
4. Adds an Element of Professionalism
With the templates, stock photos, and option for brand kits, Canva will definitely give credibility to your business! It’s a great way to figure out your business’s brand if you’re just starting out or, as I like to say, if you’re giving a face lift to your already existing brand. Regardless of your needs, Canva will become one of your biggest assets!
