Whether you are unfamiliar with the ins and outs of social media or too busy to spend precious time posting on Instagram it can sometimes seem unrealistic that you could create professional content for Instagram easily on your phone in 5 minutes.
I am aware that this sounds too good to be true, but I can assure you that with every Instagram update comes another great app or software to use to help bolster your social media tool belt.
In this blog we are going to cover how to create Instagram content using Canva.
Why is Canva Cool?
Now it is no secret that your content is the engine that drives your brand on social media and specifically Instagram. Having high quality photos and graphics on your Instagram feed can be the difference between attracting an investor, landing a client or monetizing your account.
As I mentioned there are many tools out there that can help you to create professional content on Instagram, however, if you are on the go and using your phone some of those tools may seem complicated or not provide the right features that you need.
What is Canva and How Do I Use it?
Canva is a tool that can bolster your content creation prowess all while allowing you to turn photos on your phone into high quality graphics on the go and keep more money in your pocket (because the app is FREE!).
Creating Instagram content using Canva is a GREAT way to make your posts look and feel professional just as it would if you hired a professional graphic designer!
