How to create quick and easy professional graphics for your online business

If you are operating an online business, or doing any form of online marketing then you know the need for customized images and graphics. You need graphics and images for your print marketing material, website, blog posts, online advertising, social media posts, facebook cover images and the list goes on.

Typically you would contact a graphic designer to design something that fits the size and specifications of your online channel, or you had to learn how to do it yourself using advanced software like Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Thanks to Canva, graphic design is now amazingly simple for everyone. By bringing together a drag-and-drop design tool with a library of more than 1 million stock photographs, graphic elements and fonts, you can create all your online business graphic elements in one location.

The web tool is free to use and allows you a large selection of vector graphics free of charge. However if you use one of the stock photos in your designs, you will be charged $1/per image before you can export the file which is very cheap considering the wide selection and quality of images.

PS: If you want to create a logo for your business it is highly recommended you see a professional designer as you will need to ensure that your logo is copyrighted and available in various file formats that are beyond the capabilities of an online service like Canva.

By far the best place to get a logo designed online would be at 99Designs.

Wishing you a very successful and profitable online business journey!
