How Artists Can Save Time Marketing Art Online with Canva
If you are selling art online, you already know that there are many jobs that need to get done in order for you to land a sale.
If it was as easy as creating artwork and uploading it on your artist website to land a sale we would all be happy and successful.
Unfortunately, that is not the case. It takes a lot of hard work to build brand awareness and have people find you online.
All of the little jobs that land a sale consume time and if you are not careful you could easily find yourself feeling overwhelmed.
The good news is that there are many tools available that will help you save time.
Create Images Fast with Canva
One of my favorite tools that saves me a tremendous amount of time for creating social media and art blog images is Canva.
I do enjoy using Photoshop for other projects, but when it comes to creating images for social media and my art blog, I go to Canva.
Canva is a free online site that allows you to create the perfect social media and blog image in just minutes.
Every social media site has different image dimension guidelines for their newsfeeds. Searching for the correct image dimensions for each social media site is a time killer.
Canva has this covered and provides templates of the most popular social media sites along with blog image templates.
All you have to do is pick the templet for the social media site you are creating an image for, drag and drop your image and text, download the image to your computer and post it on your social media site.
It takes me less than one minute to create most of my images.
Here is a list of features Canva has to make your images look professional.
- Photo straightener
- Image cropper
- Add text to photos
- Speech bubble maker
- Fade and transparency tools
- Photo enhancer
- Photo blur
- Photo vignette
- Design grids
- Free icons
- Photo frames
- Web wireframe
- Add texture

Selling art online takes a lot of work. All of the little jobs like creating images for social media takes time and if you do not know how to manage your time you can easily find yourself sitting at the computer all day instead of in the studio creating art.
