Oh, marketing materials. What the heck ARE you?
Obviously when we think marketing materials we think basics; business cards, logos, email signatures. But what ELSE do they entail? Well how about things like letterhead, stationery, media kits, basically everything that I never thought I needed before. Add to that things like invoice templates and postcards and I’m over here like WHY haven’t I done anything like this before?
The answer is it’s hard to do.
Individually creating marketing materials from scratch was such a time suck for me until I got smarter with my time and with my resources. So today friends, I’m here to show you the easiest way that you can create marketing materials too!
Meet My Bff, Canva.
Canva is a tool I have been using throughout my whole blogging career and I bet it’s going to save you so much stress. I create everything from the logo you see on my website to all of my thumbnails directly in Canva. And the best part? They have pre made templates that you can customize and turn into your own in no time. In fact, here are some awesome things you can create with Canva:
- Business Cards
- Social Media Graphics
- CD Covers
… and so much more!
Now I’m sure you’re wondering uh, hey Karly. Where do I even find these things? Well girlfriend let me tell you, they’ve been hiding under your nose the WHOLE time. Let me show you!
Head to your Canva sidebar, hit ‘Find Templates’ and bam! Access to thousands of pre designed templates for whatever you need in your business.
One of my favourite tools I also set up in Canva is the “My Brand” section. It allows you to choose your brand colour so every element you choose within Canva from then on will automatically be branded your own colours.
In the Canva For Work (paid version) you can even customize your fonts for heading, subheading, and body fonts. Not to mention, everyone’s favourite, ‘save with transparent background’.
