Marketing your business consistently on social media isn’t easy, and neither is staying on brand. But these 3 tools can help create a branded Instagram feed design and keep it looking for only 17 cents a day!
As a designer, I use a combo of InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop for the bulk of my projects. But I love Canva for small, quick projects like creating branded social media templates. That way I never have to design a post from scratch. This tool is perfect for the small business owner or nonprofit that is straddling Do-It-Yourself and Done-For-You services.
COST: Canva’s FREE account gives you access to everything you need to create branded social media templates. Or your can purchase my done-for-you templates in my Canva Template Shop.
If you market yourself of social media, a huge part of staying on brand means getting in front of your ideal customers through specific hashtags that your audience uses. I use Hashtag Bandit to find, organize, and analyze my niche hashtags.
My favorite thing about it is that is instantly lets you know when a hashtag is banned or dead, and it has color indicators to let you know whether the hashtag has enough activity on it for your content to be found.
You are 42% more likely to achieve your goals just by writing them down. And I know I have found this to be true. That’s why I love The Content Planner, a flexible planning system with 15 fillable planning sheets to brainstorm, dream big, and plan your online content one month at a time, and track your wins.
And, it comes with stickers! Who doesn’t loves stickers for incentive?
