Have you herd of this super awesome tool to create amazing presentations, blog or Pinterest graphics, social media graphics, ebooks, basically anything you can think of? It's called Canva and guess what, it's FREE! I use Canva.com on a daily basis, I absolutely love how simple it is to use, just drag and drop and you've created something amazing!
If you want to learn how to create amazing and beautiful presentations you can use for your business or maybe an upcoming webinar then stay tuned! I'm going to take you through step by step how to use Canva for your business.
First things first, you will need to create an account in canva. Just head over to Canva.com to get started. And no, I do not have an affiliate link, I just love Canva and want to share things that help make my job easier with you! All you need is an email address to get started and it's completely free!
You can choose to upgrade if you want but I never have had to and I enjoy using the free version.
Once you are all signed in you will have a ton of different templates to choose from! You can choose whatever template will work best for you but for this we will be creating a presentation for either a webinar or for anything else in your business.
Click on the presentations template to get started! See how simple this is so far?
Once you've gone into the presentations template you get to choose your layout and you can feel free to use any layout you would like. There are some layouts that have a $ sign by them meaning you will have to add your own stock or royalty free photos or you can pay for the exact pictures they have in the layout.
But I would just recommend using either your own photos or looking for royalty free pictures you can use so you don't have to pay to use those layouts. But it's totally up to you!
Now comes the fun part, getting creative with your design! Once you pick a layout you want to use you get to make it your own! Start adding in pictures and different fonts to really turn this project into something amazing!
Remember the layouts are just a guide and you can drag and drop pictures, new font and text wherever you want in the layouts.
You can add different shapes, arrows, illustrations and frames to your presentation as well! Everything you need is right there for you and they even have a few free stock photos you can use as well!
Once you are all done being the creative that you are and are ready to save you design and export it simple go to the top of the screen and click on download. You can download your projects in whatever format you want but I usually choose PDF standard or PNG for my presentations.
The best part about Canva is that once you save your design you can go back and edit at any time. As soon as you long into Canva all of your designs will be displayed for you to re-download, edit or do whatever you want with!
