Are you creating your own content today? Did you know that you could create really amazing original content using free online tools?

We have recently been creating content for our credit union marketing clients with www.canva.com.

Making Graphic Design as easy as pie Canva is a great an online tool that allows anyone to become a developer and create their own designs using Canva’s templates. 
Some of the Canva templates include:
Album/Poscast Cover, Social Media, Presentation, Poster, Facebook Cover,

Facebook Post, Blog Graphic, Document, Card, Twitter Post, Invitation, Business
Card, Twitter Header, Pinterest, Real Estate Flyer, Google+ Cover, Facebook Ad, and
Kindle Cover.

The list is endless! This is a huge resource for the social community and most of the templates and backgrounds are free. You can also use your own photos. Some of the more creative backgrounds are available to use for a very small fee ($1.00). If you love creating content, then Canva is like your candy store! Be careful tough…you could spend many hours creating on this site!

Once your design is complete, Canva allows you to share it on Twitter or Facebook directly. If you would like, Canva also gives you the option to Download your design or link to your design on their site. Once you create a Canva account (it’s free!) you will be given 5 invitations to pass out to your friends to invite them to use Canva too. Canva also has a plugin for Facebook via Post Planner, which we also use from time to time.


Another site that has caught our attention recently is www.spoken.ly. This online tool also allows anyone to join and create their own designs for quotes.

Spoken.ly allows the user to also search topics using hashtags (i.e. #love #life #wisdom) and then borrow the sourced content via downloading and re-posting. Their templates, due to the size, are primarily for social media platforms like Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn.
