Well, that’s for a darn good reason. Canva is freaking awesome. It’s so good that it’s given more than a few small business marketing companies a run for their money! Why? Because it’s so easy to use. Like so, SO easy. In today’s fast-moving, complex marketplace, brands have only seconds to make their case online. New graphic material is generated, chewed and spat out faster than ever. You can no longer afford to put your marketing material through a multi-step approval process and expect that it will last even a season. You need the ability to bust out a piece of artwork, post it and let it die before a day passes. It’s brutal, but the lifespan of a graphic is pretty much comparable with a fruit fly these days. So, you need to be able to make those hours count! Allow me to demonstrate. I’m going to pull up Canva right now, make a blog image and come back here to post it and I’ll tell you how long it takes me…. And……………. Done! It took me just 2 minutes and 10 seconds to create and post that graphic. And it looks pretty decent, right!? IMAGINE if I had spent 5 whole minutes on it! ? The Lowdown on the Slowdown LOTS of startups and small businesses get stuck right at the point where they need to start getting a regular supply of content for the web and their social media. They haven’t yet hired or don’t have the budget to hire a small business marketing service or a creative agency. It can seem daunting to take responsibility on your own, but you CAN put together your own startup marketing plan. Just hook yourself up with Canva and off you go! #2 Best Tool: Mailchimp In your marketing arsenal you need 2 tools, something to create your marketing materials and something to distribute your marketing materials. Right now, there’s no better tool for getting the word out than Mailchimp. In case you forgot how awesome Canva is…. This took 1 minute! 😉 Why is Mailchimp the best small business email marketing tool? It’s easier to use than any other option email marketing software for small businessesThe emails look great.
