Overall Satisfaction with Canva

I absolutely LOVE Canva. As a solopreneur, I have to wear all the hats in my business and that includes graphic design, which is REALLY not my forte! Between social media content, pins for Pinterest, images for my website...if I didn't have Canva giving me the right dimensions for my designs, templates to inspire me, etc...I would truly be lost.
  • templates - their templates inspire my designs so much and save me untold hours
  • elements - Canva includes a lot of great graphics and picture frames that make my designs truly stand out in the crowd
  • dimensions - Social media image sizes change CONSTANTLY! Without Canva guiding me towards the right size I would have redo my designs over and over again!
  • Also...a super under-used feature of Canva is animation. Sites like Pinterest are wanting creators to post video pins now too and by animating my design in Canva, it becomes a video with the touch of a button!
  • Honestly, I think Canva has really got it right in most areas. I do wish there were more elements available at the free level as I like to keep my business costs down
  • Some of Canva's social dimensions get outdated from time to time. Staying even more on top of the platform changes would be awesome!
  • Adding more business categories for the templates would also be helpful! Most templates are geared towards other industries and sometimes I have to be a little extra creative to make them fit my needs
  • templates
  • image dimensions
  • fresh content (photos, elements, etc)
  • Saves me a TON of time
  • Makes graphic design easy for me...even as a non-artist
  • The price point for the Pro version is very reasonable

I am a tech-savvy business coach and I recommend platforms and tools to my clients and audience daily. I recommend Canva to most of my clients but especially to those who want to get started using Pinterest for their business. Creating Fresh Pins regularly (which is what the platform wants now) would take so much longer and be far more frustrating without Canva.
