How to create exciting Facebook post using


Are you someone who likes to share anything motivational and inspirational in your Facebook account hoping to make someones day?

These inspiring messages often reflect how we feel. But instead of the usual plain lifeless posts, why not make wonderful Facebook posts that complement your inspiring message?

Posts that are beautifully designed and professionally looking!

That is exactly why you need to try my handy dandy tool called Canva.

What is Canva?

Canva is a tool that allows you to make designs for web or print. Its not like those complicated design software we used to know.

Canva is easy to use. It has a drag-and-drop feature that instantly saves you time so you can spend more time creating. And it has fewer buttons and menu options.

It has everything you need for that awesome design such as stunning images, professionally shot photos, icons, filters and fonts. It provides you with pre-designed customizable layouts if you dont know where to start.

Most of all, Canva is free!All you need to do is sign-up and youre good to go!

Canva also offers premium images, icons and illustrations for a minimal cost.
