One of my favorite tools I love to use for social media is CANVA. This is an easy way to create graphics to go with your posts. And I believe we all know by now how important an image is to attract readers to our blog posts and social media sites. (We won't go there in this blog post about how video engages readers and keeps them on your site for a longer time.)
If you haven't tried CANVA, give it a whirl. Use the tutorials and youtube videos to help you. I was lucky enough to sign up with a Canva Crash Course with Emily Roach-Griffin. She clearly explained how to use this amazing tool. Click here if you want to find out more about Emily's course and sign-up for FREE. She has a FB group page too so you can share your creations and enjoy seeing others. And let me tell you, hang onto your hat because Emily if full of energy and lots of fun to watch.
Emily taught us that you can save your brand colors AND use 2 folders in the FREE version of Canva. I did not know that. So I during the course I chose my brand colors and saved them so I won't have to look them up all the time. If you're into branding, then try this.
Here are the colors on my business card. Even now, I'm not sure I'll keep the colors forever or for this season. But if I do, I will be incorporating them on my blog site and in my social media posts.
