When my sweet online friend Amy sent me an Asked & Answered message asking if I would please offer a webinar or online training on how to create social media graphics, I was intrigued. And then excited about the idea. And then started wondering what in the world I could offer that would make any sense at all.
So I played around with a few ideas at the end of last week and came up with something I think will be really fun – a 30 day “Creative Basics” challenge to take you from start to finish to create everything from text-only graphics to quote graphics and quite a few things in between.
Join @crystalstine as she launches a FREE 30 day social media graphics course in April! Sign up now! <–Click to Tweet!
- Where to find photos
- Some rules about fonts
- How to use Canva, PicMonkey, and three of my favorite apps
- …and by the end of it you’ll even create a free printable to offer your readers!
It’s everything I use on a daily basis, from creating graphics here for my own site, to what I share on Instagram, to the work I do for (in)courage, plus the graphic design lessons I’ve learned over the last 9+ years working in marketing. This is content that I typically share at conferences but it will be absolutely free for you!
I’ll be working this month to get all of the materials together, and we’ll kick it off in April! Here’s how it will work:
- I’ll send an email each day with the challenge and some instructions – this won’t happen on the blog, so be sure to sign up here if you want to make sure you don’t miss anything!
- We’ll check in on Instagram each day – follow me here and use hashtag #CreativeBasics
Easy, right? I’d love for you to join me – I promise we’ll take it slow and work together. You’ll get to see what I’m doing and you can follow along and encourage your fellow bloggers as they join us, too! Since I’m a huge fan of “the more the merrier,” I think this could be REALLY fun if a bunch of us do it – so I’d love for you to invite your friends!
In the meantime, what questions do you have about creating graphics for social media or your blog? I’d love have you leave them in the comments so I can make sure I answer them next month!
