As a REALTOR¬ģ, how many different hats do you have to wear every day? Your clients expect you to be an expert on your properties, the local market, area service providers, local schools ‚ÄĒ you name it! You know these details by heart and could easily explain in your sleep ‚ÄĒ but sometimes it‚Äôs difficult to figure out just how to transform that information into eye-catching marketing tools that are such an essential part of your business.

Well, you can relax ‚ÄĒ you don‚Äôt have to be a professional designer (or pay a fortune to hire one) in order to produce designs that are effective and visually appealing for Web or print. Canva could be the answer!

When developing a marketing tool, getting started on a design can often be the biggest stumbling block. Canva offers 20 different templates (brochures, business cards, fliers, social media graphics and posts, presentations, and much more) and myriad design options to kick-start your creative juices and get your project rolling. Once you’ve selected your design, you can customize it by inserting your own text and dragging and dropping images and graphics from Canva’s online gallery, or you can even upload your own photos to create something even more customized. Choose from hundreds of free elements and fonts or select from a library of over 1 million high quality stock premium images for only $1 each.

Canva’s photo editor takes all of the intimidation out of touching up your photos. Easy to use preset filters and advanced editing tools are available to enhance your photos or create a desired artistic effect to take your marketing materials to the next level.

Once your design is complete, you can download it as either an image file or PDF. It’s that simple! You can even publish it with crop and bleed marks to make the process of printing that much easier.

In addition to the wide array of design tools, Canva also offers a ‚ÄúDesign School‚ÄĚ with a blog and dozens of tutorials on basic design concepts that anyone can use. The comprehensive FAQ section contains the answers to most common user questions, and a support center is also a click away for help with issues extending beyond the scope of the FAQ.

Canva is free to use, except for premium images, and is available for computer or as an iPad app. How could it help you to save time and money today? For more information, visit
