A 5-day workshop to help you become more comfortable using Canva for your creative business so that you can spice up your shop and social media!Yes, I Want This!
You will learn ...
First we'll go over the basics of using the site - how to use templates, where tools are located, how to create a brand kit, and all the ways you can use Canva in your creative business.
Next we'll talk about how to use Canva to make Facebook posts that create engagement and turn followers into customers.
Since Instagram is such a visual app we'll go over some great graphic ideas for your Instagram feed that will make followers want to shop with you.
Now that Pinterest requires so many new images you need a variety of ideas and templates. We'll go over lots of great ideas for evergreen pins that will be seen for years to come.
Every Etsy shop tends to look alike. Graphics are where you get to personalize your shop and brand your business! Use images in your banner, shop icon, and listing photos!
Why I created this workshop
I was an accountant for 20+ years. I am much better with numbers and spreadsheets than I am with the creative side. But I've loved exploring both halves of my brain. :) When I started using Canva my first designs were AWFUL. I'm pretty sure my Kindergartner could have done better lol. I didn't know where to find things, I had no idea how many pre-made templates there were or how to use them, and I had no clue of all the features Canva had to offer.
The purpose of this workshop is to break it all down for you step by step, with live videos so you can ask for help and get feedback on your designs. It's time to spice up your shop with new images!
