Canva offers so many included social media images and header templates, marketing materials, documents, presentations, invitations and ads, you’ll find almost everything you need and if you don’t you can always create a custom design of your own.

Even better, Canva’s collection of content types continues to grow. For example, they recently introduced templates for both ebooks and resumes.

Drag-and-Drop

Like most of these solutions, Canva offers drag-and-drop functionality. Combined with search, this feature makes it easy to discover image elements and to include the ones you like.

Beautiful Images and Fonts to Use

Whether you use a free or paid photo, or even one you upload yourself, Canva provides and easy-to-use photo editor where you can change the look of your image using settings that include filters, tint, brightness, and more.

As for fonts, Canva offers hundreds from which to choose. So many Great choices!

Share your ideas

Canva makes it easy to collaborate on designs in two ways: ask for comments and open to edit.

Both types of sharing are initiated by clicking on the “Share” button in the editor and then entering one or more email addresses in the email box:

iPad App

If you like working on the go, Canva offers an iPad app that’s as full-featured and easy-to-use as the online version:

How to create your first Canva Project

1. Log into Canva and create your account. Remember it is free so once you are logged in you can create many sweet designs.

2. Next, you will click the “create a design” button to see several types of template categories that Canva offers. Scroll down to the Marketing Materials category and select logo.

3. Choose your Canva Layout -A new screen will pop up with a blank canvas on the main work space and a variety of Canva Layouts for different logo types on the left-hand side bar. You can scroll through and select the one you want to start with. Remember, you can customize everything so choose based on the layout itself not things like colors or fonts as you’ll be able to change them. You can select the layout you want you can begin making the changes you wish.

4. Design your logo! Choose your colors, fonts, text, size, shape, etc that express your brand best. I chose to create a fun little doughnut shop logo for this example because I’m slightly obsessed with sweets lately. (Don’t judge.)

5. Name your Design – Before you are finished with your logo you want to name the file by deleting the current file name up in the right corner of the screen by the Share button and then save the file. Just go to the File button in the upper left corner and click “save” from the drop down. Now the file will be saved in your Canva account under “all your designs”.

6. Save your Design – To export the file and save to your personal computer or drive, you just click the “download” button in the upper right corner and choose what file type you’d like to save it as. (I.e. PNG, JPEG, etc.)

And there you go! You now have your professional customized logo without spending a cent. Of course, you may want to revisit your logo over time as your business evolves as many brands do. Once you are at a point where you are ready to invest in your branding a little more you can always choose to hire a graphic designer and revamp your logo if you’d like. There is no right or wrong way- you just have to do what’s right for you.

The important thing is to get your name out there and start being familiar with your customers and vice versa! I hope you found this helpful and feel ready to create your own now.

  1. Oh thank you for informing Canva. I just checked it and it seems easy enough to use for a newbie like me. I tried to use Adobe Photoshop once for creating a social media image, but I can’t cope up with all the tools there. Is the Pro Canva really worth it? I am working alone, so there isn’t really a need for folder or template sharing. Thank you for your information

    1. Hi. I think it is a personal preference to want to upgrade to Pro.  Personally I am good with the Free version.  Best wishes in your Online Business.  Thank you for your comments!!

  2. Wow this is a very great tool for internet marketers like me. Atleast I would be sure I won’t waste a dime on creating images and logo for my website right from the onset. The features in canvas are rather mouth watering and considering the fact that it is free to use, I must definitely get it downloaded ASAP. With that, I would be able to structure my images and posters exactly the way I want it to be to buttress my contents on my websites. Thanks so much for this piece

    1. Hi  I totally agree that Canva is a great tool for anyone in the Affiliate or Internet Marketing Business.  I wish you all the best in your online endeavours!  Thank you so much for your comment.  

  3. Hello susan thanks for enlightening us to Canva. I think Canva has a lot to offer than for it to be free. Most designing platforms I’ve seen charge alot for what they offer and Canva is almost unbelievable. When I first heard of Canva I was sceptical but I just made my findings after reading this post and I most confess the platform is really great. Something I wasnt able to get is how much they charge after a month of free trial.

    Wealthy affiliate is a great platform everyone looking to make money online should join in. I just joined the community a few weeks ago and I must say in having the freedom I wanted when j joined. The support I got from members is overwhelming. Thanks again, I’ll definitely try canva out.

    1. Hi I have updated the post with the pricing details…..it is 12.95 for upgrading to Pro, however they do claim Canva is Free forever.  I am using the Free Version.  I am glad you are a fellow WA Affiliate member.  Best wishes in your online journey.  Thank you for your comment.
