I’ve been using Canva for quite some time now. I’ve used it to design custom logos, website banners and other graphics. I’ve even used it to create thank you cards, ebooks and freebies. More recently though, I started using it to create custom pins for my Pinterest accounts.
What is Canva exactly? It’s a graphic design website that allows you to fully customize pretty much whatever your little heart desires. It’s very user friendly, easy to navigate, and anyone can learn how to use it with some practice and patience. I love their pre-designed templates, canvas sizes, and never-ending graphics and customizations. If the thought of purchasing and using Photoshop or other Adobe programs intimidates the crap out of you, Canva will be your saving grace.
I’ve put together a super simple tutorial on how to design a pin from scratch using Canva. Pinterest is my absolute favorite social media platform, and many successful bloggers are praising it as the number one way to drive traffic to your blog or website. You’ll want to create easy to read, aesthetically pleasing Pins to attract your audience and this is a great way to start. If you have any questions or want to know more about having a Pin designed specifically for you, feel free to reach out!
