Canva is an easy to use, free online graphic design tool for creating an assorted array of graphic designs for different purposes including infographics, social media graphics, and web graphics. If your goal is to gain traffic, you will need to engage viewers with some sort of graphic. Canva is to graphic design what the Keurig coffee maker is to drinking coffee. It is generally free, but as a means for profit they do feature stock images along side the free ones that you can buy for $1 a piece if you prefer them.
The thing I like most about this platform is that it is designed to be accessible by all people regardless of your level of technical or design ability. Beginners can create graphics that come out looking like a professional created them. For small business owners or employees who take on design tasks that are outside the normal domain of their expertise this tool is indispensable.
Hawtin Consulting has used this tool on a number of occasions for different campaigns. Below are some of the designs We’ve created on Canva in the last few months.
