Design Real Estate Marketing Graphics Fast with Canva
I have something a little special for you all today.
Last week, I went Live on Facebook and did a little tech tutorial using one of my favorite tools: Canva.
Canva is a free graphic design tool that lets you DIY professional-grade graphics for all your real estate marketing needs, including social media.
And did I mention it’s free?
Follow along with the video tutorial as we walkthrough some of Canva’s most-used features and design a graphic for social media.
No eye for design? Start with a template.
One of my favorite features is the extensive selection of design templates. These templates are your weapon to whipping up graphics in minutes.
There’s a template for everything under the sun including flyers, presentations, email headers, social posts, social ads — you name it, they have a template for it.
Access thousands of Social Media design templates with Canva
Still having trouble with your designs? Canva recently launched Design School where you can learn tips, tricks & design best practices. They walk you through every feature teaching you how to take their templates and make them uniquely yours, better.
Go Pro (when you’re ready)
There is a Pro version of Canva you can upgrade to if and when you want. You can do pretty much everything you’ll ever need to do with the free version, but the perks included with an upgraded account are well worth the more than affordable price tag.
For starters, Canva Pro helps you keep things organized with folders and a brand kit. No need to upload your logo over and over again. With the brand kit you upload your logo, fonts and color palette once, putting everything you need to customize a template right at your fingertips.
Other Canva Pro features include:
A large library of stock images, font and graphic elements
Magic graphic resize to create multiple graphics for all your social platforms with a single click
Access to new features as they come
Canva pro starts at a very affordable $9.95 a month.
Please note: I am a Canva affiliate partner. However, I have loved, used & recommended Canva long before becoming an affiliate. All this means is that I receive a small commission in the event that you purchase or sign up. This comes at no extra cost to you, and helps support the creation of the free content that goes into this site. Thanks for your support!
