YouTube can seem like a pretty scary obstacle to tackle. Not only is it video (eeek, your face is now out there for the world to see!), but how do you create a video strategy that’s manageable for you?! What is a video strategy? What you do know is, if you are going to take on a new platform you want to have a strategic plan and have a measurable ROI from your new endeavor!
I feel ya! I am a mom to 2 little ones under 3 and I’m not going to take on a new platform that will suck up more of my time (I’m looking at you Facebook), let alone a platform where I need to get showered and dolled up every week just to film videos!
This is exactly why having a plan will not only save you time BUT will allow your videos to convert at a much higher rate. I plan out my videos ahead of time and film as many as possible in one day thanks to my video strategy. This allows me to stay consistent with my video content.
You’ve seen them on Social Media, and you’re curious, “How on earth do I make a GIF?” Graphics Interchange Format (GIFs) are files that show animation or simple movement. They are a great way to add a little fun to your feed, show off some personality, stand out and change things up a bit. They’re the perfect mix between the two leading forms of communication, visuals and video.
It’s so disheartening when you spend all of your time creating a new graphic in Canva, finally get it juuuust right, and then when it’s uploaded to your site or social media spaces, it looks blurry and crappy.
It sucks. It’s frustrating. You want to pull your hair out, or toss your mouse at the wall.
I get it, babe.
And the last thing I want for you is to feel frustrated with your graphics and with Canva. I want you to feel confident and empowered about the visuals you create for your business.
Today I want to teach you how to use link triggers in ConvertKit to make things crazy easy for already-existing subscribers. Obviously there are 1.493723 billion things you could use a link trigger for so this is just an example.
Let’s say you’re hosting a webinar and you want to send an email to your list telling them about it and asking them to sign up but because they’re already on your list (aka, already given you their email address, name, etc) they could really skip the whole sign up page thing.
YouTube is amazing. In just a few short minutes, you can learn how to do anything. Like how to create your own stand-out YouTube thumbnails in Canva!
Even better, you don’t need to have (or be) a YouTube Manager or a Graphic Designer to have a pro-looking channel. You’ll be happy to hear that Canva has already made it super easy for your channel to stand out and improve your click-through rate.
In today’s short training I’ll share how to create your very own YouTube thumbnails, so you can create your own unique style for every video and easily transform the overall look and feel of your channel.
YOU SHOULD BE IN FACEBOOK GROUPS IF YOU WANT TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS.
Yes, I totally just yelled that at you BUT only because I’m trying to make a point.
We have ALL heard this; if we want to grow our business, we need to be in Facebook groups and it’s true but you might be missing a key part to this process.
Here’s the thing y’all, being in Facebook groups means a lot more (or less?) than just running in and dropping your links then running away; it means being involved, being the expert and just being awesome - but that’s a discussion for another day.
One of the things I hear a lot as a Canva Designer is that people feel stuck on ideas for their graphics, and want to know how to create great looking graphics faster.
Well, the last thing I want you to do is reinvent the wheel every single time you sit down to create your graphics.
So, if you’re feeling creatively stuck with your visuals, then today’s training is perfect for you. I want to show you how to approach one visual and use that “style” to batch the rest of your graphics so you can save time and feel great about your visuals.
