Overall Satisfaction with Canva

I run a small online 3D printing service. Canva is used by only me. It solves my start-up's social media campaign design problems. Canva is an easy online tool to use. You can create leaflets, posters, business cards, banners, and other cool things with Canva. It is then very easy to share them online social media platforms. Or you could save them on your device. Canva has ready stencils or designs which are useful for projects.
  • Quick to produce social media content
  • You can use it on the cloud. No need for downloading software.
  • Canva has the ability to create content for different social media platforms. For example, you could create posts just fit for Instagram in square format.
  • You could write an e-book with Canva.
  • Canva's mobile app has more design restrictions than the browser app. It is a little bit hard to use on mobile devices.
  • Templates section could be broadened to other new business areas, like 3D printing.
  • Direct social media sharing options within Canva are limited to Facebook and Twitter. There should be other media options such as Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.
  • Using Canva on social media posts has a big effect on its visibility.
  • Canva's fancy design features attract peoples attention.
  • I use Canva's free version. My business benefited from even this free version of Canva. No cost at all.
  • I'm sure that without Canva, there would be fewer followers on social media, like Twitter or Instagram, for my business.
Crello is very similar to Canva. But it is more expensive than Canva. Besides Canva has a much cleaner interface than Crello. Besides that, these two software are very identical. It is hard to identify differences.
Canva is ideal for all kinds of businesses. But it fits perfectly for a new start-up company. I love that it's free. Of course, Canva has paid areas but for a first-time user, there's no need to pay. Canva has a developing interface. There have been a number of feature additions to it within the last year. Canva has limited photo editing tools, though. Thus, you might need another software to edit your photos.

Using Canva

1 - I'm the owner of the company and I use Canva on every aspect of my business as a small online business. My role covers finding customers, creating social media posts, curating business related booklets or ebooks, replying customers' emails and all other related tasks. Canva provides easy and fast graphics creation.
1 - The only need for using Canva is understanding basic PC and internet usage. There might be a need for a creative perspective. But it doesn't an obligatory. Existing templates can be used. There are many paid and free templates in Canva.
  • Creating social media posts
  • Writing ebook
  • Social media account headers.
  • Creating infographics.
  • I'm writing an ebook on Canva.
  • There's a method called lithophane which means creating 3d relief objects from photos. I add texts to my photos which would be lithophane afterwards.
  • I might be design my promotional items like T-Shirts on Canva.
Because there are tones of different ways to use it properly. Canva provides a very satisfying user experience.
